As we age, our body naturally creates less collagen, the skin component responsible for strength and elasticity.

The decrease in collagen leads to the appearance of folds, wrinkles, and hollowness on our faces. To counter that, a customized cosmetic treatment plan can be developed for you, which might include BOTOX® or other longer-lasting fillers and injectables like Sculptra® or Radiesse®.

Dr. Andre Berger is an advanced injector trainer in LA and Beverly Hills and has been called upon to teach other cosmetic surgeons the proper technique for administering long-lasting fillers such as Sculptra®. Very few doctors have this specialized background and as a result, he is one of the few providers in the Beverly Hills area that are qualified to administer this long-lasting treatment.


The results of Sculptra® injections in Los Angeles are not immediate. However, the effects of the treatments are enduring and will continue to improve. Skin thickness can increase over the course of several weeks, and may require a second or third treatment to touch up the area. Unlike other absorbable injectables that last only a few months, the benefits of Sculptra® can last up to three years.

Frequently Asked Questions About Sculptra

Can I drink alcohol after Sculptra?

You should not drink alcohol for 24 hours after your Sculptra injections since alcohol causes inflammation.

Can sculptra be used on lips?

Although Sculptra can be used around the lips, it should not be injected directly into the lips. Hyaluronic acid fillers are the better choice because injectors can visibly see the effects of the added volume. Sculptra stimulates collagen production and might create an uneven lip augmentation.

FAQs how long does it take for Sculptra® to show results?

Sculptra® does not produce immediate results. Instead, it works gradually over time to create long-term improvements in skin volume and elasticity. You may notice results within a few weeks, but it can take up to 4-6 months for the full results of treatment to become visible.

Does Sculptra® stimulate collagen?

Yes! The Sculptra® formula is specifically designed to stimulate the production of collagen. Patients will achieve a gradual increase in collagen for several months after receiving Sculptra® injections.

How effective is Sculptra®?

Sculptra® is one of the leading injectable treatments because it is so effective. Compared to other dermal filler products, Sculptra® produces results that look more natural and last for years longer.

How long does Sculptra® last?

Sculptra® is clinically proven to last between two and three years. Patients can enjoy incredibly long-lasting results after their Sculptra® treatment.

What is the average cost of Sculptra®?

The average cost of Sculptra® varies depending on the number of injections needed to produce the desired results. However, given how long the results last, many patients find that Sculptra® is a great investment. Plus, financing options make treatment much more affordable.

What happens when you stop using Sculptra?

When Sculptra injections are discontinued, the body gradually metabolizes the poly-L-lactic acid used in the treatment, and the effects of the treatment gradually diminish. Over time, the collagen that was stimulated by Sculptra injections will break down, and the face will return to its pre-treatment appearance. However, the long-term benefits of Sculptra can last up to two years or more after treatment has stopped.

Can Sculptra be combined with other facial treatments, such as fillers or Botox, for enhanced results?

Yes, Sculptra can be combined with other facial treatments like fillers and Botox to achieve enhanced and complementary results. While Sculptra helps to stimulate collagen production for a gradual improvement in facial volume, fillers can provide immediate volume and contouring, and Botox can smooth out dynamic wrinkles. Combining these treatments should be done under the guidance of an experienced healthcare provider to ensure a cohesive and natural-looking outcome.

How should I prepare for a Sculptra treatment?

To prepare for a Sculptra treatment, avoid blood-thinning medications and supplements such as aspirin, ibuprofen, and fish oil for at least a week prior to the procedure to minimize the risk of bruising. Ensure your skin is clean and free of makeup or skincare products on the day of the treatment. Additionally, consult with your healthcare provider about any medications or medical conditions you have to ensure the treatment is safe and effective for you.

What aftercare is required to ensure the best results?

After a Sculptra treatment, it is important to massage the treated areas for five minutes, five times a day, for five days to ensure even distribution of the product and optimal collagen stimulation. Avoid excessive sun or heat exposure for a few days to reduce the risk of swelling and bruising. Additionally, follow your healthcare provider's specific aftercare instructions and schedule any recommended follow-up appointments to monitor progress and address any concerns.
