What is Sculptra?
Sculptra is a safe, FDA-approved facial injectable that corrects deep facial folds and volume loss due to the natural aging process. It’s comprised of poly-L-lactic acid (PLA) which is derived from lactic acid, a natural substance in the body that promotes cellular metabolism.
Sculptra works by stimulating the body’s natural collagen production to plump and reshape the face, while also improving skin texture. In this way, it gradually rejuvenates your appearance over time, while ensuring that you still look like you – only significantly younger. An extremely popular facial injectable among our clients, Sculptra’s natural results are known to last up to two years when the injections are performed optimally.
Areas treated by Sculptra
At our medical spa in Los Angeles, we routinely use Sculptra to improve the appearance of:
- Deep nasolabial folds
- Hollow temples
- Smile lines
- Marionette lines
- Chin wrinkles
- Hollow cheeks and cheekbones
Due to Sculptra’s ability to replenish the body’s natural collagen supply, it gradually corrects hollow
areas and restores a voluminous appearance over time. As such, most clients require three to six sessions
over a period of a few months to produce optimal, long-lasting results. After repeated Sculptra injections,
your results will continue to progress on an ongoing basis – dramatically improving the appearance of deep
facial folds and age-related volume loss.
Though individual results will vary, the majority of our clients still see noticeable results two years
after their initial procedure. At Marcus Medical Spa, we recommend annual maintenance treatments to
continuously promote collagen growth and preserve your beautiful results.
What can I expect during Sculptra treatments?
Our highly trained specialists are experts at administering Sculptra to ensure your results not only create
the youthful look you desire – but are also extremely natural. During your initial consultation for among
the best Sculptra Los Angeles has available, we will carefully evaluate your loss of volume and signs of
facial aging as a whole, before composing a custom treatment plan designed to replenish collagen where you
need it most.
During the actual injections of your Manhattan Beach Sculptra, we will apply a local anesthetic to ensure your comfort before administering
small amounts of Sculptra underneath the skin to restore youthful volume and treat deep facial folds. From
there, we will massage the area gently to ensure the filler distributes evenly. The entire one-hour
procedure will be virtually pain-free, with our clients reporting very minimal discomfort at most during
Before & After

Is there any downtime associated with the treatment?
There is virtually no downtime associated with Sculptra, and most of our clients are able to resume their
normal activities immediately. Though a small number of individuals report some bruising, swelling, redness,
itching and lumps at the injection site, these side effects are usually very minimal and will subside
gradually over time.
Am I a candidate for Sculptra?
At Marcus Medical Spa, we’re committed to personalized care, and we only administer fillers if it’s truly
in the client’s best interest. As such, we determine candidacy for all of our treatments on an individual
basis, following a thorough discussion of your cosmetic goals, concerns and desires. However, most
individuals are considered to be candidates for Sculptra if they are at least 18 years of age and wish to
create a youthful and more voluminous facial appearance without undergoing an invasive surgical procedure.
