Are You Providing Sculptra Injection Treatments?

The Doctors Insurance Agency works with well-known carriers to find the best coverage for our MediSpa/Aesthetic, Injectable, Laser, and Wellness Centers.

We insure many Aestheticians providing Injectable Advanced Services. Sculptra Injections are a form of Injectable Advanced Services and coverage may be difficult to find for any injections other than the face. Sculptra is an FDA-approved injectable that is designed to fill wrinkles and reduce hollow, sunken cheeks. The treatment increases your body’s natural production of collagen, which is key for tightening skin. The effect of Sculptra will increase over time.
