Happy Clinic® Before & Afters
For Happy Clinic® Denver Sculptra®
What is Denver Sculptra®?
Sculptra is sterile water suspended poly-L-lactic acid filler that was FDA approved in the United States in 2004. Sculptra is FDA approved specifically for facial fat loss in the cheeks and is formulated to be injected deeper. Our favorite patient for Sculptra is the thin marathon runner, yoga instructor, or bodybuilder that has sunken temples and cheeks. Sculptra can add "fat" back to those areas and give you a more youthful look. As the body breaks down Sculptra, it begins to form collagen in those areas. You can learn more about Sculptra at www.sculptraaesthetic.com.
Does Denver Sculptra® hurt?
Sculptra is well tolerated by most patients. Sculptra is reconstituted with sterile water and lidocaine, so injections tend to be very tolerable for patients.
Can I do Sculptra® and Botox® on the same visit?
Yes, you can do both at the same visit.
Where is Denver Sculptra® administered?
Sculptra can be administered in the temples, cheekbones and jawline, chin, and anywhere we see facial fat loss.
Who will be doing my Denver Sculptra® Injections?
All Denver Sculptra injections are done by Dr. Phil Nguyen, MD, Dr. Victoria Monroe, DDS, and Dr. Taavish Sharma, DMD, at Happy Clinic Denver. Our medical director and founder, Dr. Nguyen, has over 20 years of experience in cosmetic injections, with thousands of injections done safely and effectively.

Are Denver Sculptra® injections safe?
The FDA approved Sculptra in 2004. Its specific niche is geared towards those with overall general fat loss in the face. With new recommended dilution rates and post-procedural massaging of the areas treated, Sculptra® is a safe and effective alternative to traditional dermal fillers.
Your provider may give you further instructions specific for you.
Post-procedure for Sculptra®
How will I look post-treatment of Denver Sculptra®?
Most patients look good post-treatment. Because of the multiple injection sites, it is not uncommon to get a bruise, but because Sculptra is injected more deeply, these bruises tend to be more profound and less noticeable. I have known Sculptra patients going out to dinner the night of their treatment with just a little makeup. Right after treatments, patients look "full" in a very natural way.
How long does Denver Sculptra® last?
Sculptra has been shown to last for up to 24 months (2 years). My protocol is 1-2 vials injected every 3-6 weeks for 2-4 times (for a total of 6 vials). This protocol gives patients the best results and generally full correction that will last the two years that was seen in the original studies.
Are there any post-procedure instructions?
Yes. Standard post-procedure instructions are to massage the areas injected for 5 minutes, five times a day, for 5 days. This is very important to follow! This greatly reduces/minimizes the risks of the formation of lumps which were seen with older techniques of more concentrated Sculptra dilution and superficial Sculptra injections.
