Sculptra® is a unique facial filler that increases collagen in the skin to correct lines and wrinkles. Texas Dermatology offers Sculptra® for men and women in San Antonio, Kenedy, New Braunfels, and other areas of Texas.
What is Sculptra®?
Sculptra® is one of the few available FDA-approved dermal fillers that softens wrinkles by increasing collagen in your skin. Collagen is important because it helps to support the skin and prevent wrinkles. As you age, your body loses more collagen that what is produced, and for your skin, this means that it is more vulnerable to developing wrinkles.

Sculptra® is priced according to how much of the product is needed to remedy your wrinkles, so we can provide this information at the time of your consultation. Texas Dermatology does offer financing options through CareCredit® if you would like to make affordable monthly payments.

Am I a Candidate for Sculptra®?
Sculptra® is effective for treating deep facial wrinkles and folds around the nose and mouth. Our dermatologists recognize the indications that make Sculptra® a viable option for men and women, so we encourage you to schedule a consultation to learn more.
How is Sculptra® Performed?
Sculptra® comes pre-loaded in syringes, and we may use more than one syringe for your treatment. Each syringe is designed with a thin needle that is used to deposit Sculptra® at a specific depth along your wrinkles.
What is the Recovery Like After Sculptra®?
No recovery or downtime is needed after your Sculptra® injections. You may notice a small amount of swelling and redness around each injection point that lasts approximately one to two days. After the injections, you will notice a slight reduction in the wrinkles thanks to the gel formulation. Collagen production can take several weeks, and you will notice a gradual improvement in your wrinkles.
How Long Do Sculptra® Results Last?
In clinical trials, Sculptra® provided anti-aging benefits for up to two years. Factors that will influence the longevity of your results are how quickly your body breaks down the new collagen and if your skin undergoes any additional aging. Sun exposure is known to break down collagen quickly, so you should use a high-quality sunscreen when outdoors.
