What is Sculptra?
Lost volume happens naturally during the aging process, particularly in the middle of the face as the cheeks tend to become flat and hollow. Dr. Amir Moradi and his skilled team offer Sculptra Aesthetic, a poly-L-lactic acid injectable dermal filler that allows for deeper and longer-lasting volume in the apples of the cheeks. In addition to increasing the fullness of the cheeks, Sculptra can decrease the look of fine to deep wrinkles and lines, like the nasolabial folds (also known as laugh or smile lines) that go from the sides of the nose to the corners of the lips. With its unique gel formula approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Sculptra helps to increase the natural collagen production in your body so even after you stop getting injections, your complexion will be stronger and healthier compared to before Sculptra treatments. Schedule an appointment at Moradi MD in San Diego, CA to hear about the benefits of this aesthetic treatment.

Who is a candidate for Sculptra?
Sculptra Aesthetic is ideal for patients who want to improve volume in their mid-face without surgery. Some candidates may have naturally hollow cheeks while other patients experience age-related volume loss. Sculptra dermal filler may also be used to treat fine to severe facial lines and wrinkles, including marionette lines, nasolabial folds, and chin wrinkles. Since Sculptra works to prompt the natural production of collagen, most Sculptra patients will notice an improvement in the appearance and overall health of their skin.
How does Sculptra work?
Following your consult to create your unique plan for treatment, you will receive your injections in our minor procedure room. Your injector can apply numbing cream or local anesthetic before sterilizing and marking the areas to be injected. As soon as you are ready, the filler is injected into the deeper layers of the skin at the chosen sites. For longer-lasting results, our team performs a series of four Sculptra injections each scheduled at Moradi MD about three weeks apart.
What Can I Expect after Sculptra?
Following your appointment, you may experience mild to moderate redness, swelling, bruising, or tenderness at the injection areas that should subside naturally in 3 – 5 days. To speed healing, you can apply a cold compress to the treated areas. You should avoid UV exposure after your treatment and use sunscreen. Many patients will see clear improvements immediately after their treatment with complete results appearing after 3 – 5 months when the natural collagen production strengthens the complexion. When performed as a series of injections over the course of 3 – 4 months, results can last as long as two years.
