Sculptra® treatment is a procedure that restores and maintains healthy skin. A gentle, minimally invasive injection that restores lost facial volume and smoothes out deeps lines by promoting your own collagen re-genesis to create a fuller, long-lasting, more youthful appearance. Sculptra therapy is a safe FDA-approved, biocompatible treatment offered in our Brooklyn Dermatology offices and our New York City dermatology offices for the following signs of facial fat loss:
• Sunken cheeks
• Indentations from scarring
• Hollow eyes
Over time, your skin begins to slacken and lose its natural elasticity. Subcutaneous facial fat thins and shifts downward from a lifetime of gravity. This volume reduction and repositioning gives the appearance of an aging face. Sculptra is a long lasting, clinically-proven, non-invasive, stimulating injectable treatment that is designed to smooth out and soften lines and wrinkles, restore facial volume and contour the face without surgery. Poly-L-lactic acid, the main ingredient of Sculptra, has been used for years as a resorbable (dissolving) suture material.
Our NYC Dermatologists offer this discreet approach to achieving a fresher, younger-looking appearance.
Unlike surgical options, Sculptra can provide gradual, natural-looking results through less traumatic treatment. Results usually start to become visible after 4-6 weeks and generally last about 2 years. There is no skin testing required prior to this procedure and there is only a topical anesthetic applied 15 minutes beforehand. The entire procedure takes about 20 minutes.
We look forward to seeing you at our New York City or Brooklyn Dermatology offices!
