Sculptra® in Phoenix, AZ
Sculptra® is one of the longest lasting dermal fillers available, which is why men and women in or around the Greater Phoenix area, such as Ahwatukee, Chandler and Gilbert, rely on Sculptra® for their non-surgical cosmetic treatments. Board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Larry C. Leverett, recommends Sculptra® for treating lines and wrinkles around the eyes, mouth and lips as well as the forehead.
What is Sculptra®?
Sculptra® is recommended for treating lines, wrinkles, scars and areas that will benefit from increased volume, making it one of the most adaptable dermal fillers available. The polylactic acid in Sculptra® occurs naturally in the body and helps to stimulate collagen production. Collagen is an important part of your skin that gives the skin a “lift.” By replenishing the collagen levels via Sculptra® injections, Dr. Leverett can correct:
- Lines and wrinkles around the eyes, mouth, and nose, as well as in the cheek area
- Bagginess or a hollow appearance in the cheek and eye areas
- Reduce the appearance of scars to blend with surrounding skin
How Much Does Sculptra® Cost?
Like our other dermal fillers and injectables, the cost of Sculptra® treatments varies by patient. We are better able to provide a cost after your consultation. Dr. Leverett offers financing through CareCredit® and Prosper Healthcare Lending. Our office also accepts Visa®, MasterCard®, American Express®, Discover®, cash and cashier’s checks.

Men and women prefer Sculptra® for their cosmetic treatments because the product:
- Requires no downtime
- Is administered in a quick and simple treatment that takes less than one hour
- Provides anti-aging benefits for up to two years
- Treats the most common signs of aging
Good Candidates for Sculptra® Treatments
Cosmetic concerns that can be treated with Sculptra® include:
- Poorly defined chin
- Advanced creases or folds between the nose and mouth (nasolabial folds)
- Jawline with an overly-prominent bone structure
- Hollow or sunken temples, under-eye area, cheeks and cheekbones

What Can I Expect from My Sculptra® Treatments?
Most patients achieve optimum results with an initial treatment followed by a second treatment after 15 days. Each treatment involves making several injections with a fine-gauge needle to deposit Sculptra® into the skin tissues.
After the Sculptra® Treatment
The gel formula immediately adds volume to the treatment area. In the next two to three weeks, the polylactic acid stimulates collagen production, and the lines and wrinkles further fade. Full results take approximately 20 days, and the results last up to two years.
