What is Sculptra?
Sometimes referred to as a liquid facelift, Sculptra is an injectable product that can restore youthful volume and help correct various signs of aging. Sculptra is a favorite of celebrities and those who have previously used shorter-term fillers love it for its longevity and how natural the effects look over time.
Sculptra is composed of poly-L-lactic acid, a synthetic material. Poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) is biocompatible (does not harm the body), biodegradable (able to be broken down by the body), and has been widely used for decades in medical products.

Who is a Candidate for Sculptra?
If you are bothered by wrinkles such as deep nasolabial folds (the line between your nose and the corner of your mouth), you may be a candidate for Sculptra injections. Sculptra can also be used to fill indented scars for up to 2 years.
Do Sculptra injections hurt?
A topical anesthetic or an injection of numbing medicine may be used, if desired, to minimize discomfort. Sculptra will be injected in small amounts into the skin using a very fine needle.
Enjoy pain-free filler injections with add-on option PRO-NOX™
Every patient deserves a comfortable experience, so we now offer an add-on option to use PRO-NOX™ during injectables, laser treatments, and other medical spa services.
What is PRO-NOX™?
PRO-NOX™ is a self-administered nitrous oxide (laughing gas) system that allows you to be in full control of your comfort. If at any point you feel you need something to take the edge off, simply breathe through the PRO-NOX™ mouthpiece for instant relief from pain and anxiety.
Unlike oral pain medication, PRO-NOX™ takes effect in seconds, but these effects wear off minutes after your treatment, leaving no trace of the chemical in your body. You can safely drive and return to your normal routine without worrying about side effects.
Ask us about adding PRO-NOX™ to your treatment at your consultation, or contact us for more information!
Is there any downtime with Sculptra?
Immediately following treatment, there may be mild redness, swelling, pain, and/or bruising in the area treated. These usually disappear in a few hours to a few days. Icing the area can help decrease swelling.
The treated area should be lightly massaged a few times each day for several days after the treatment session. Most patients feel comfortable going back to their normal routine after treatment.Get the 5-star patient care you deserve at LJCSC
How long do the results last?
Results are natural-looking and appear gradually over a few weeks’ time. While the results of other fillers last only a few months, Sculptra can last two years or more because it causes the body to stimulate its own collagen.
