Sculptra

Sculptra is an injectable collagen stimulating product with durable results lasting at least 2 years in clinical studies.  It can be used alone or along with other filler products like Restylane (hyaluronic acid) and Dysport (botulinum toxin) to achieve what some have termed the “liquid facelift”.

Dr. Contreras and Dr. Cohen are both certified expert Sculptra injection trainers for Galderma.  They train other providers across the country in proper Sculptra injection technique.

Facial changes with aging involve more than just the skin surface.  Loss of bony structural support and fatty tissue along with breakdown of collagen and elastin in the skin all contribute to the volume loss and sagging of the face over time.

Sculptra’s benefits extend beyond the treatment of individual lines and folds.  Sculptra can address the widespread volume loss in a way that no other product can reasonably address.  Whether your volume loss is due to aging, weight loss, or medications, Sculptra is likely the best choice to achieve your goals.

Results after Sculptra injection are achieved after a series of treatments (2-3 total) spaced 1-2 months apart.  Unlike other fillers with immediate correction and shorter longevity, Sculptra offers a subtle, natural, and gradual improvement over several months with results lasting at least 2 years.

Sculptra is a great way to achieve a more youthful look without anyone knowing you’ve had work done.  Many patients will comment on the improved appearance of their skin texture in addition to the improved volume.

What makes a good Sculptra patient candidate?

  • Age: 30-65 with only mild to moderate loss of skin elasticity
  • Loss of facial volume, especially in more than one area (e.g. temples, cheeks, jawline, chin)
  • Desire for gradual improvement with subtle, natural results
  • Desire for longer duration of effect
