Dr. Marin offers Sculptra injections in San Diego.Sculptra® is an FDA-approved injectable filler that restores facial volume for a more youthful and rested appearance by stimulating the body’s own collagen production.

Every year, leading San Diego board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Marin provides beautiful results from Sculptra® treatments to patients in La Jolla and California.

Cost & Financing

The cost of Sculptra® at Marin Aesthetics typically begins at $750 per vial. Your final price will depend on the number of vials needed per treatment area, and the number of required follow-up sessions with Dr. Marin to maintain results.

Our practice accepts cash, all major credit cards, and personal checks. Additionally, we offer financing options to help shoulder patient costs.

What is Sculptra®?

Sculptra® is made from Poly-L-lactic acid that is suspended in a solution of saline and lidocaine (numbing medicine). It is injected into your tissues and there it remains for a period of time.

In the months to follow, Sculptra® will stimulate the production of natural collagen and increase the local soft-tissue volume, which is effective in reinflating empty tissues.

Dr. Marin uses Sculptra® to treat common issues in the face including marionette lines, nasolabial folds, and hollow sections in the temples and cheekbones.

Before & During the Treatment

Dr. Marin performs Sculptra® as an in-office procedure that can be done in 15 – 30 minutes. Topical anesthesia will be applied to the skin to ease discomfort, followed by the administration of the treatment deep into the facial fatty layer of the skin.

Once Sculptra® has been applied, Dr. Marin will massage the affected areas in order to even out and facilitate its absorption into the skin.

You may require 3 sessions of Sculptra® to fully maximize your results.

Recovery from Sculptra® is relatively straightforward. After the treatment, Dr. Marin will massage each of the areas where the product was placed, showing you exactly how it is to be done during your recovery.

Our patients are instructed to perform a massage 5 times a day for 5 minutes over the course of the next 5 days. Massage can be done with your hands or by rolling a lipstick or chapstick container over the areas like a rolling pin.

In light of the state wide restrictions on non-essential businesses to help reduce the spread of COVID-19, we are rescheduling all of our elective appointments until the global circumstances improve. Our necessary post-operative appointments will be made, as needed, to address immediate surgical concerns such as suture removal and acute postoperative issues. All non-acute follow up appointments, fillers and Botox will need to be postponed until after the quarantine period mid April. Our office will reach out to all patients who need to be rescheduled.

We will be offering new patient virtual consultations online and via Skype that can be scheduled through our website or by emailing Also, we will offer follow-up appointments in the same manner to help manage our patients’ concerns while still respecting the need for social distancing.

We appreciate all of your understanding during these difficult times for all of us.
