Non-Surgical Facial Rejuvenation
If you want to restore a younger look, but don’t want the dramatic instant changes of other treatments, Sculptra® is a great option to achieve gradual, long-lasting results. Together with our Medical Director, Joseph Perlman, MD, we will create a personalized treatment plan that can easily work with your busy schedule.
How does Sculptra work?
Sculptra® is an anti-aging facial injection treatment. Over a series of treatments, your treatment provider will inject Sculptra® Aesthetic in key areas of the face to gradually restore a youthful appearance.
Sculptra® Aesthetic Injections
Is Sculptra® right for me?
Sculptra® can be a very effective alternative to surgical facelifts. By working beneath the skin’s surface, Sculptra® injections help replace lost collagen to add fullness and smooth wrinkles and deep facial lines.
Sculptra® is perfect for filling and adding volume to:
- Deep nasal folds
- Smile lines
- Chin wrinkles
- Temples and cheeks
Will I see results right away?
Sculptra® produces natural-looking results over a series of treatments. Your results will start with subtle improvements and you’ll ultimately enjoy significant, long-lasting facial rejuvenation.
How long does a Sculptra® treatment take?
Each Sculptra® appointment is just 15-30 minutes. To achieve the full benefits of Sculptra®, we schedule each patient for a series of 3-4 injection appointments over a few months. This allows for gradual collagen replacement and lets us monitor each round of injections for optimal smoothing and filling.
How should I prepare?
Sculptra® treatments require no special preparation. Once your treatment plan is determined, we will outline a customized schedule that works for your busy schedule.
What can I expect during recovery?
During your injection you will apply cold air to the injection area with our Zimmer Cryo-chiller. This will help reduce swelling during the first 24 hours. In addition, we often recommend that you apply a soft cloth ice pack when you return home. This will further reduce swelling. It is also helpful to gently massage the face throughout the day. Be sure to avoid sun exposure and protect your skin with sunscreen.
Are there risks associated with Sculptra® treatments?
Side effects of Sculptra® injections may include short-term redness, tenderness, and swelling.
Patients experiencing concerning or unusual symptoms after treatment are advised to call us immediately.
How long does Sculptra® last?
Sculptra’s long-lasting results make it a very popular facial volumizer. Our patients can typically expect their Sculptra results to last two years or more. Many patients even experience a subtle lift from their Sculptra treatment.
