Sculptra is a collagen stimulator that restores volume and smooths away wrinkles over time, with long-lasting results.

Individuals with significant volume loss and deep facial creases can achieve a more youthful appearance with Sculptrapoly-L-lactic acid). The treatment involves a series of injections over several months, and the can last up to 2 years, as shown by clinical studies. Sculptra can also be combined with laser and microneedling treatments. The procedure is performed by experienced providers like Shannon Shipe, FNP-BC at New South Family Medicine and MedSpa.

Schedule a required MEET & GREET with Shannon Shipe, FNP-BC to see before and after photos, and to discuss your options. Ultimately, this choice will depend on your desires and preferences, as well as your health, the condition of your skin, and the results that you want to achieve.

Two Years


Very Minimal 

As you age, your body produces less collagen, losing about one percent every year. By the time are forty, you may have lost twenty percent of your collagen, and thirty percent by the time you are fifty. This can lead to wrinkles and lines on your face, especially in mobile areas. Sculptra is a procedure that can help improve the appearance of wrinkles and folds by stimulating the production of collagen and connective tissue through the injection of fine particle powder.

Is Sculptra Safe?


Yes, Sculptra has a proven track record of safety and success. The FDA approved Sculptra in 2004 as a safe and effective treatment for moderate to severe facial lines and creases. 


How long do the results last?


One of the most popular features of Sculptra is its durability. While it takes 4-6 weeks to see the full results of your treatment, those improvements will last up to two years.


Are there any side effects?


Immediately following a treatment session you may experience mild redness, mild swelling, and possibly bruising. However, this rarely happens since Shannon uses a cannula to inject the product. 


Patients who undergo Sculptra treatments via cannula will find the procedure less painful, as the cannula tip is designed to push, not penetrate the skin. This allows it to nudge aside major blood vessels and arteries, decreasing the risk of puncturing them during filler application. Since only one entry point is required, the patient experiences less pain because there’s only one area of active trauma in the body that they need to recover from.

Will my face look or feel different?


When treated with a licensed and trained injector who has the experience like our injectors at New South,  you can expect gradual, yet impressive results. No one should notice you had a treatment unless you choose to tell them. You will see gradual enhancement in the months following your procedure as collagen levels increase – almost as though time was in reverse.


Is Sculptra right for me?


Sculptra is an excellent treatment for patients who are unhappy with their aging symptoms and want to see natural, long-lasting results from their treatment. This collagen stimulator is effective on even deep facial creases. Patients need to understand that results will take a few weeks to develop.


How long will it take for me to recover?


After treatment, you should be able to resume your normal activities. There is minimal downtime afterward. Your provider will give you post-care instructions on applying ice to the treatment areas for the first few days to reduce any pain and swelling.  There may be some bruising after Sculptra injections, so plan accordingly if you have any major social or professional events.
