Introduction to Sculptra

At our boutique plastic surgery practice in New York, Sculptra is a very popular Biostimulator that is offered to our patients at all three locations in NYC and Long Island. Collagen is the most common protein in the body and helps support the skin’s inner structure. With Sculptra, you’ll be able to activate the skin’s natural regenerative process.

What is Sculptra?

As a poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) collagen stimulator, Sculptra helps restore the deep, underlying structure of the skin to diminish facial wrinkles and is an FDA-approved injectable that subtly and gradually helps restore facial volume.

Sculptra works with your body within the deep dermis to help revitalize collagen production and help restore your skin’s inner structure and volume. As the Sculptra PLLA microparticles are absorbed, they help stimulate collagen production. Rebuilt collagen strands begin gradually helping to restore facial volume and the look of fullness to wrinkles and folds.

Sculptra may stimulate collagen growth which helps to restore facial volume and the look of fullness to wrinkles and folds over time.

What are the Benefits of Sculptra?

In addition to giving you an increased level of confidence, Sculptra has provided our NYC area patients with the following benefits:

  • Increases collagen production
  • Hypo-allergenic
  • Long-lasting, natural-looking results
  • Minimally invasive with little downtime
  • Provides more facial volume
  • Reduces wrinkles and fine lines
  • Smooths out skin texture

Who are the Best Candidates for the Sculptra procedure?

At KH Plastic Surgery, we feel the best candidates for Sculptra treatments are those with the following characteristics:

  • At least 18 years of age or older
  • Do not have any rashes or wounds on their face
  • Have no autoimmune issues that will interfere with the treatment
  • Looking for long-lasting and natural-appearing results
  • No history of keloid scars
  • Not currently pregnant or breastfeeding
  • Wishing to restore lost volume to their face due to aging or weight loss

What’s the First Step?

If you are in the New York City area and want a fuller, more youthful appearance, Sculptra treatments from KH Plastic Surgery could be an excellent solution! When you come in for your initial consultation, you will be able to meet with Dr. Ari Hoschander or a member of our aesthetic team and discuss your aesthetic goals.

We will be able to answer all of your questions, examine your areas of concern, and talk to you about your medical history so we can avoid any unnecessary risks. We encourage every one of our patients to be open and honest with their provider during their Sculptra consultation.

Once the two of you agree on how your treatment will be handled, a treatment plan will be created just for you. With this information, you can have your treatment performed immediately after your consultation or our Patient Coordinator can help you choose a date that better fits your schedule.

What to Expect on the Day of Sculptra

Your Sculptra treatment will take place in our NYC or Long Island offices where you will be administered either local anesthesia or a topical cream to numb the area and ensure minimal discomfort.

Next, Dr. Hoschander will use a syringe to inject exact amounts of the Sculptra solution into your targeted areas. The injected solution will stimulate collagen production to help you achieve a fuller face with a firmer texture and improved skin quality. Your session will end with a mini massage to the treated area to gently disperse the solution and you will be provided with directions on how to properly massage the treated areas at home.

Depending on the level of change you are attempting, this treatment will take about an hour to complete and you may require two to four sessions for optimal results.

Sculptra Recovery

After your session, there will be some immediately noticeable results, but your most optimal results are achieved with multiple treatments performed every two to three months. You can alleviate any mild pain or swelling with a cold pack or Tylenol during the first 24 hours post-procedure. It is crucial to massage the treated area at home using the 5-5-5 technique (5 minutes at a time, 5 times a day, for 5 days).

The exact number of treatments a patient will require will be decided upon during your consultation, however, please keep in mind that this number could change depending on how your body reacts to the treatment.

Once you have done all your recommended treatments and have allowed the Sculptra to settle into place, the treated area(s) of your skin will be fuller, more firm, with improved skin quality.

How Much Does Sculptra Cost in New York City?

The cost of Sculptra in New York City is highly dependent on the amount of Sculptra filler needed per session and the number of sessions you will need to meet your goals. The best way to determine how much your treatment will cost is to come in for a consultation and receive a full face assessment.

Once there is a better understanding of what you’re trying to achieve and how to help you get there with a treatment plan, you will be provided with a breakdown of the total cost of your procedure.
