What is Sculptra?

Sculptra is specially designed for patients who want gradual improvements to the tone and texture of their skin. By replacing the collagen that you have lost with age, Sculptra gives you natural-looking results that will keep people guessing about why you look younger and more vibrant.

Sculptra is a synthetic injectable material known as “poly-L-lactic acid”. Poly-L-lactic acid is biocompatible (material that does not harm the body) and biodegradable (is broken down by the body). Poly-L-lactic acid has been used for many years in dissolvable stitches, soft tissue implants, and other types of implants.

How does Sculptra work?

Sculptra contains poly-L-lactic acid that replaces lost collagen—the natural substance that maintains volume in young skin. Sculptra works deep inside your skin where lines and wrinkles start and fills in the areas that do not have adequate collagen.

Sculptra is injected below the surface of the skin in areas of fat loss, in many cases related to aging and sun damage. It provides a gradual increase in skin thickness. Visible results are seen within the first few treatments. Sculptra will not correct the underlying cause of facial fat loss, but will help improve the appearance by increasing skin thickness in the treated area.

How many treatments are required?

The number of treatments varies between patients. Typically, three to six treatments are needed for optimum correction. Dr. Goldberg will fully describe your individual Sculptra treatment regimen during your private consultation.

I saw visible results in the period of a few months. That’s why it looks so natural.

Is skin testing required prior to being treated with Sculptra?

Sculptra contains only natural ingredients and does not require skin testing.

Are the results from Sculptra immediate?

Sculptra gradually improves your skin, and you may not see improvements in your skin for several weeks.

How long do treatment results last?

Clinical studies have proven that, for most patients, Sculptra provides correction for up to two years.

Can I combine Sculptra with other treatments?

Many patients achieve their cosmetic goals with several cosmetic fillers and injectable products. Sculptra can be combined with other treatments to give you a youthful and healthy appearance. Your provider will help you determine the best combination to help you reach your cosmetic goals.

What is the cost of a Sculptra treatment?

When it comes to injectables, every patient is different. Your Sculptra treatment cost will be determined only after a thorough consultation and examination with your board-certified dermatologist in NYC. Once this is done, you will be provided with the best treatment option to achieve your ideal outcome, along with a quote for treatment. Our office accepts CareCredit® and Alphaeon™ Credit to help you get the necessary treatment on an immediate basis.
