SCULPTRA®

 

“I’ve had Sculptra® injections and they can hurt—a lot. At times, I felt like I was being stabbed all over my face. But Dr. Grodberg carefully and slowly places the Sculptra® and I hardly felt the injections. It was a totally different—and much more pleasant—experience." —SR, Manhattan

“Sculptra® consists of tiny particles similar to the material used in absorbable sutures that dissolve over time. These particles are suspended in water. Sculptra® has to be injected in a very specific manner. I find the slower, the better and that seems to minimize discomfort. Sculptra® also has a different mode of action than other fillers. After the treatment session the water gets absorbed over the next few days leaving the Sculptra® particles to trigger a response by the skin that results in new collagen formation. It takes about 4 to 6 weeks for this new collagen formation to be observed. It is a remarkable option for volume replacement which is the key to the aging face in certain individuals.” —Dr. Michele Grodberg

Sculptra® Before and After Treatment

 

If you’re considering Sculptra® treatments, here are Dr. Grodberg’s answers to a few frequently asked questions:

WHAT IS VOLUME REPLACEMENT?

“There are multiple contributing factors to the aging face. One is the loss of fat pads, deep below the facial muscles that provide a sort of “ scaffold” for the overlying skin. Some people lose these fat pads more profoundly than others, for example runners with low body fat. Sculptra® can be meticulously placed to restore volume in the areas of this fat loss with resulting lifting and redraping of the overlying skin. The results are natural in look and feel and remarkable. Bony loss in the temples and chin area can also lead to a hollow, aged look that is beautifully corrected by Sculptra®.”

HOW MANY TREATMENTS DO I NEED?

“The number of treatments will vary from person to person. The most natural result can be achieved by slow correction over a series of injection sessions typically spaced 6 to12 weeks apart.”

HOW LONG DO RESULTS LAST?

“Sculptra® creates results that can last for 2 years.”
