What is in Sculptra?

Sculptra is a polylactic acid, which has been used in the medical industry for over 20 years. One of the most well-known products that contains polylactic acid is dissolvable sutures. This synthetic substance does occur in the body when muscles are exercised. Since this injection is made with a synthetic type of material, you do not need to have an allergy or test spot conducted first, since there is little to no risk of a problem.

Most patients who want to receive Sculptra will be able to and there are little problems that arise that would stop a patient from receiving this treatment. Since the polylactic acid is the main ingredient, patients do not have to worry about a reaction to the treatment.

Of course, patients who want to receive treatment need to make sure that they are in good health and do not currently have any skin infections. Immunocompromised individuals may not be able to receive treatment either, but Dr. Kleydman can discuss your options with you.

Improve the Volume of Your Face

One of the reasons patients choose Sculptra is because it can increase the volume of your face. Over time, your face will lose some of the natural fat deposits in it and this can cause you to lose a lot of the contour you once had. Many patients experience sunken cheeks, loss of lip definition, and hollow pits under the eyes. A Sculptra injection in Brooklyn can help add fats back into your face to create a filled-outlook.

Sculptra Process for Treatment

When you come into our office to receive treatment, you will meet with Dr. Kleydman who will discuss your medical history with you and go over the treatment process and what to expect. Almost all patients will be a good candidate for this procedure, but if for some reason you are not, Dr. Kleydman will help you choose another procedure better suited to meet your needs.

Before you receive the injections, you may receive an injection of lidocaine to help ease any discomfort that may have been experienced. The injections will be targeted to the specific problem areas and Sculptra will be inject under the skin. Once the injection is made, the area will be massaged to help ensure the material is evenly distributed and that nodules do not form under the skin.

Sculptra Aesthetic is a synthetic material called poly-L-lactic acid, which is a biocompatible, biodegradable material that is gradually and naturally absorbed by the body and helps to rebuild lost collaged over a series of treatments. Sculptra should only be injected by a trained professional due to the specific method required for successful treatment. Sculptra is injected deep into the dermis where strands of collagen support your skin’s structure. Over time, Sculptra helps the body regenerate lost collage. On average 3-4 treatments are needed over the course of several months. Depending on how much collagen has been lost, the physician will decide how many injections are needed per appointment to achieve maximal results.

Sculptra Butt Lift

Sculptra for the buttocks is indicated for patients who have a flat or sagging buttocks, desire more volume and for healthy patients with realistic expectations. The procedure requires local anesthetic to prevent discomfort and ice is applied to minimize swelling. After the first procedure, patients will notice an immediate change in appearance, which will be indicative of the final results. Desired results generally require 2-4 treatments spaced 4 weeks apart. As the Sculptra activates, it will begin to stimulate collage production and as a result, the augmented buttocks will appear fuller than before, enhancing natural contour.

Sculptra Hand Rejuvination

Sculptra injections may be used to refill the hands to give them a youthful and replenished look. When Sculptra is injected into the patient’s skin, the skin level is raised therefore the veins and tendons become less visible. Due to the nature of the product, it continues to work for months after producing lasting results for 2-4 years, depending on the patient and lifestyle.
