Are you seeking a natural-looking enhancement without looking like you’ve had work done? If this sounds like you, Sculptra® may be the solution. Sculptra® is an FDA-approved treatment that gradually replaces collagen in the skin to naturally combat signs of aging. Unique from other filler treatments, Sculptra® is formulated with poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) microparticles, which are absorbed over time and help to stimulate collagen. It’s important to receive Sculptra from a board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Willis to ensure careful placement of the filler and natural-looking results.
Who is a Candidate?
Adults 18 years of age and older who wish to soften lines and wrinkles in their lower face can often benefit from Sculptra®. You should not receive this treatment if you have an active skin infection at the treatment site, have a history of keloid or hypertrophic scar formation, or are pregnant or breastfeeding. Please contact our office today to schedule a consultation appointment and to learn more about your candidacy.

Dr. Willis and his staff were amazing! Very calm, clean and professional atmosphere. They were inviting and attentive. I couldn’t have asked for a better experience. I went in for a consultation and had my lip filler procedure in the same day. Quick and painless. The results are perfect. I highly recommend Dr.Willis and taking advantage of the referral program. 10/10!
I am over the moon with my results from Dr. Willis after a breast lift and an abdominoplasty. Dr. Willis and his team are so easy to work with. He listened to what I wanted and gave me beautiful results- better than I could have even hoped for. If you’re thinking about getting a procedure done with Dr. Willis my advice would be DO IT!
The Sculptra® Treatment
Sculptra treatment is performed in-office at our plastic surgeon-owned and operated medspa. To prepare for treatment, your nurse injector will cleanse the skin and apply a topical numbing cream to ensure you are comfortable. Then, a very fine needle will be used to inject the Sculptra® into the designated areas. The number of injections will depend on the amount of change desired. Treatment generally takes 30-45 minutes to complete.
As with any injectable treatment, there are some side effects associated with Sculptra®, including swelling, redness, tenderness, bruising, itchiness, and lumpiness at the treatment site. These effects are temporary and will resolve with time. You can apply a cold pack to the treated area for short periods of time for the first 24 hours to reduce swelling. Be sure to avoid exercise, tanning beds, and excessive exposure to sunlight until all redness and swelling have resolved.
Results appear gradually as your body creates more collagen and can last up to two years.
