Is Sculptra® Aesthetic 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 to 30 minutes. To achieve the full benefits of Sculptra® Aesthetic, Dr. Karlinsky-Bellini and Dr. Claudia Kim will schedule each patient for a series of three to four injection appointments over a few months. This allows for gradual collagen replacement and lets your New York cosmetic surgeon carefully direct each round of injections for optimal smoothing and filling.
How should I prepare?
Sculptra® treatments require no special preparation. Dr. Karlinsky-Bellini and Dr. Claudia Kim will describe your procedure in detail and outline a customized treatment plan that works around your schedule.
What can I expect during recovery?
Our team recommends applying a soft cloth ice pack to the treated areas after each Sculptra® Aesthetic injection. This will help reduce swelling during the first 24 hours. 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 our office immediately.
How long does Sculptra® last?
Sculptra® Aesthetic’s long-lasting results make it a very popular facial volumizer. Dr. Karlinsky-Bellini and Dr. Claudia Kim’s patients can expect their Sculptra® results to last two years or more. Many patients even experience a subtle lift from their Sculptra® treatment.
