What is Sculptra?
Volume loss happens naturally during the aging process, particularly in the middle of the face as the cheeks become hollow and flat. Dr. Adam Bodian offers Sculptra Aesthetic, a poly-L-lactic acid injectable dermal filler that allows for fuller and longer-lasting volume replacement in the cheeks. In addition to restoring the volume of the mid-face, Sculptra can decrease the look of fine to deep lines and wrinkles, like the nasolabial folds (sometimes known as laugh or smile lines) that go from the edges of the nose down to the outer corners of the mouth. With a unique gel formula approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Sculptra increases the natural production of collagen in your body so even if you stop treatments, your complexion will still be healthier and stronger compared to before Sculptra treatments. Schedule an appointment at Bodian Dermatology in Great Neck, NY to hear about the advantages of this dermal filler.

Sculptra is great for patients who want to improve fullness in their mid-face without implants and surgery. Candidates may have been born with hollow cheeks while others have age-related volume loss. Sculptra can also be used to treat shallow to deep facial wrinkles and lines, like marionette lines, nasolabial folds, and chin wrinkles. Since Sculptra works to boost the natural production of collagen in the skin, many Sculptra patients will see an improvement in the appearance and health of their complexion.
OUr Injection Technique
After your consultation to determine your personal plan for treatment, you can receive your injections in our private procedure room. Your injector can apply numbing cream or local anesthetic before sterilizing and marking the areas to be injected. Once you are prepared, the filler is injected into the deeper skin layers at the selected sites. For best results, Dr. Bodian recommends a series of four treatments each performed at Bodian Dermatology around three weeks apart.
Your Sculptra Results
Following your treatment, you may have mild or moderate redness, swelling, tenderness, or bruising at the injection site that should resolve naturally in a few days. To speed healing, you can apply a cold compress to the injection sites. You should avoid UV exposure as much as possible after your injection and use sunscreen. Many patients will have improvements immediately following their treatment with full results developing after a few months, as the increased production of collagen improves the health of the skin. If Sculptra is performed in a series over the course of 3 – 4 months, results may last up to two years.
