What is Sculptra?
Our Las Vegas, NV board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Christopher Khorsandi, provides aesthetic injections with Sculptra at his practice at VIP Plastic Surgery. Sculptra is a Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-approved dermal filler for the face. It is composed of poly-L-lactic acid, a synthetic, biocompatible substance used to fill lost volume, deep wrinkles, and nasolabial folds. Dr. Khorsandi injects Sculptra for men and women desiring a facial filler that is longer-lasting. Resulting in a smoother, younger facial appearance, Sculptra may last up to two years under your skin. It produces natural-looking results for our cosmetic injection patients and is commonly performed by Dr. Khorsandi in his "liquid facelift." If you would like to see if you are a candidate for Sculptra injections, please request a consultation online or call our office in Las Vegas, NV today.
Sculptra Butt Injections
While Sculptra is approved by the FDA for volume loss in the face, Dr. Khorsandi will perform Sculptra injections for the buttocks. He will augment the buttocks for patients who qualify and understand the risks of the "off-label use" of this product. As an alternative to butt implants or an autologous fat transfer to the butt, Sculptra can too enhance fullness, projection, and shape of the buttocks. Many vials of Sculptra would be administered with a fine needle. The enhancement will develop over time because Sculptra stimulates collagen production to build up the area under the skin over time, and it makes the skin thicker where injected. This would make the buttocks firmer and with tighter, lifted skin. Optimal results will be evident after a gradual development in about seven months.

"Clear+Brilliant and Sculptra - AMAZING! - Las Vegas, NV - Great consultation and follow-up. I never felt rushed. Dr. Khorsandi took his time to be sure I received the best results! - - My experience with Dr. Khorsandi was nothing short of amazing. I've done Botox regularly for a few years, but was noticing a little volume loss in my cheeks. Dr. K recommended Sculptra. My results have been perfect! I'm looking forward to my next treatment. I also had a Clear+Brilliant Permea treatment for some of my pigment from too much sun over the years. My skin glowed afterwards! I can see that my pigment is fading! I plan on doing these treatments every month!"- D. / RealSelf / Oct 01, 2013

We take our patients into a private treatment area to perform Sculptra injections. Each injection site will be marked before the needle goes into the skin. If pain is a concern, a topical numbing agent may be requested. Dr. Khorsandi will deliver the Sculptra deeply into the layers of the skin through a very fine needle for an estimated 30 minutes per treatment area. Dr. Khorsandi provides a foundation for a new contour with Sculptra to the targeted area. At VIP Plastic Surgery, we recommend 2 – 3 Sculptra injections on average that are spaced a few weeks apart for optimal results.
After Sculptra Injections
Sculptra is a nonsurgical treatment and does not require any downtime for patients. After treatment, patients will be slightly red and swollen where the injections occurred, but this goes away within a few hours. Patients can resume their normal routine right after treatment but should refrain from any strenuous activities for the first 24 hours. It is advised to not apply any pressure to the face and to sleep upright the first evening following treatment. The results may take several weeks for the optimal results to become visible.
A Sculptra session averages around $875. This price reflects one syringe of the product. During a treatment session, the number of syringes used will be determined based on the skin’s condition and how many areas are being treated. It is common for some patients to require 1 – 3 syringes during a treatment session. Sculptra butt injections are priced at $16,000 for 20 vials.

Sculptra Aesthetic FAQs
How Safe is Sculptra?
Sculptra is a synthetic-based injection and approved by the FDA for volume loss. It has been tested extensively and has been proven to be safe and effective for cosmetic use. It utilizes processed poly-L-lactic acid, which is a naturally occurring substance in humans, and negative reactions to the product are rare. Temporary side effects include mild swelling, bruising, redness, and possible pain in the injection sites.
What Are Other Options?
Age restrictions for Sculptra?
As wrinkles and creases are typical with aging candidates, anyone who needs volume may be a candidate for Sculptra treatments. Statistics show that the most common age groups who seek this treatment are between 30 – 55 years of age. The younger age group may seek treatment due to premature skin aging that is caused by personal habits or environmental factors, such as extreme sun exposure.
Is Sculptra Long Lasting?
The advantage of Sculptra over other dermal fillers is that the results typically last up to two years. Naturally derived dermal fillers only last six months up to one year. The treatment may be repeated as soon as necessary.
