Sculptra, also referred to as poly-L-lactic-acid (PLLA), is a facial injectable designed to give our Phoenix, AZ patients a youthful appearance in a more gradual manner. The substance replaces the collagen lost due to the aging process. The FDA-approved filler is especially helpful in reducing the appearance of shallow to pronounced nasolabial folds and wrinkles (smile lines). Our board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. G. Robert Meger, recommends Sculptra to his patients who are seeking long-lasting restoration for their wrinkles, as the results can last between 2 - 3 years in certain cases. Patients interested in learning more can schedule a consultation at G. Robert Meger, M.D. P.C. where our friendly staff would be happy to help answer any questions or concerns.
Sculptra is an effective, FDA-approved wrinkle filler that can produce excellent results in ideal candidates. Patients will receive the most optimal results if they are:
- Suffering from deep lines and wrinkles, specifically around the mouth and nose
- Looking for a noninvasive treatment with natural results
- Are seeking long-lasting restoration for their skin
- Nonsmokers who do not spend excessive amounts of time in direct sunlight

What to Expect
The filler is generally applied over 3 sessions during a span of several months. There should not be pain associated with the treatments, but our nurse injector can administer a numbing agent if desired. There is no downtime after the procedure though some minor swelling or discomfort may occur as a result.
Since the treatments are spaced out and generally performed multiple times, the collagen in the facial skin is gradually replaced. Patients notice subtle improvements in their facial appearance during the treatment process. Patients who receive the injectable are advised to massage the injection site frequently during the day for five minutes at a time for optimal results. If the treatment is successful, it can produce noticeable results for as long as 2 - 3 years.
