Introducing the Sculptra glow to our beautiful patients! Sculptra is an injectable that stimulates collagen regeneration.
Introducing the Sculptra glow to our beautiful patients! Around the age of 20 years old we start to lose our collagen at a rate of 1% per year. That means by the age 45, we have lost approximately 25%! Sculptra is an injectable that stimulates collagen regeneration.
Sculptra is used to enhance your skin’s quality and restore lost facial volume caused by aging, weight loss, or illness. Sculptra works by stimulating long-term collagen production. Sculptra’s main ingredient is Poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA). PLLA is a biocompatible synthetic substance that increases collagen formation and works on the deep layer of the skin to restore the skin’s structure. Unlike hyaluronic acid-based fillers, Sculptra activates fibroblasts, which are like construction workers in our skin.
Sculptra is used in the framework of the face, from the temples to the chin. This product should not be used around the lips or eyes. On average, three injection sessions over several months are recommended depending on the amount of collagen loss, followed by a once-a-year treatment for maintenance. The collagen formation is stimulated over several weeks leading to natural outcomes and improved skin texture, tone, and natural volume in the targeted area. The results are a very natural youthful appearance. Experience the Sculptra glow and discover the secret behind our treatment that has patients raving!

I have been seeing Lauren now for a few years, and followed her to The Confidence Bar.
She is so detail oriented and truly wants me to have the best results. And on top of that, our appointments are so fun, I genuinely enjoy seeing her
I am so grateful for Lauren's expertise and skill. Thanks to her I look years younger which is a huge boost to my confidence. I always also appreciate her recommendations for products which have greatly improved the texture and appearance of my skin
Lauren provided an incredible Sculptra training! She covered Sculptra thoroughly, there was one on one training, and a lot of hands-on to practice performing the treatment. She’s also very kind, supportive, and encouraging and provides constructive feedback on technique. After this training, I’m ready to launch Sculptra in my practice! Highly recommend Sculptra training with Lauren
BEFORE YOUR TREATMENT
We’re delighted to guide you through your Sculptra treatment journey.
Sculptra requires a series of treatments for optimal results, so please schedule your appointments in advance, especially if you have upcoming events like weddings or reunions.
As new collagen develops over time, the effects of Sculptra will gradually become visible and we recommend booking your follow-up sessions during your initial appointment. This can be discussed with your provider.
To minimize bruising, avoid blood-thinning medications 2 weeks prior and alcohol 24 hours before treatment, and ensure you stop Retin-A two days before and after your session.
Please reschedule if you have any skin issues near the treatment area or feel unwell. You will receive a reminder email with these details.
