How much does Sculptra cost?

There are a few factors to consider when looking into how much treatment with Sculptra will cost. Some of these include:

  • How many treatment sessions are needed
  • How much Sculptra (number of vials) your doctor uses per treatment
  • The degree of correction you and your doctor decide upon
  • Your medical aesthetic practitioners fees
  • Discounts and special offers
  • Where you live

Due to these factors and especially because Scultpra treatments are tailored to individual patients, cost will vary from person to person. The best way to determine your individual cost is by talking to your doctor.

How does the price of Sculptra compare with other anti-aging treatments?

Comparing the cost of facial rejuvenation options to each other can be challenging because so much depends on desired results, the amount of product your doctor recommends, your response to the treatment, the amount of time results last, and your specific medical aesthetic practitioner’s fees.

A treatment that lasts up to 3 to 6 months may cost less up front than one that lasts much longer, yet generally require additional treatment sessions to maintain the effect for the same duration. You may want to consider the total cost over time.

When comparing the price of Sculptra to other injectables, it can be helpful to weigh cost against treatment duration. Of course, the best way to determine how much a treatment option will cost is to talk to your physician and discuss your needs.

Are the results from Sculptra immediate?

No. Because Sculptra targets the underlying causes of the signs of ageing, it can give you a noticeable result that emerge subtly and can last more than 2 years*. Some visible improvement can be seen within the first few weeks of treatment, but Sculptra is designed to deliver its unique effects, with an average of 2 to 3 sessions, over the course of a few months. Because the production of new collagen formation is a gradual process, each treatment session will yield results that are more noticeable.
