Does Sculptra work for lips?

March 9, 2008
Sculptra is best in the cheeks and other areas where you want to get more fullness in an section of the face of large surface area. Sculptra is a collagen stimulator, not a filler. It works slowly over time and it is not as precise as fillers are.

Aside from the cheek area, I like to use Sculptra in the temples to replace volume lost as a result of age, weight loss or other causes. It makes people look less gaunt, and more youthful. These days, most good aesthetic physicians understand that a youthful appearance means recapturing the fullness and volume that has been lost over time, not just pulling the skin or erasing lines.

That being said, I do not think that Sculptra belongs in the lips. Lip enhancement is a procedure that requires precision and finesse. Sculptra is not a tool that provides precision and finesse. It is also designed to be injected into deep skin, not into the muscle and not underneath the superficial mucosa of the lips.
