Sculptra Aesthetic was FDA approved in 2009 for anti-aging and lipoatrophy treatments to replace lost volume. Sculptra Aesthetic is not an overnight miracle or quick fix. It works gradually by creating a tissue response that encourages new collagen production in your body. It is safe, effective and has been used for over a decade in 30 countries and among many thousands of men and women worldwide.

IS SCULTRA® RIGHT FOR YOU?
It works well for any man or woman who wants to restore a natural, healthy appearance and fullness to the face by replacing lost volume. There are many options today, and Dr. Lee will discuss this with you and help you decide if Sculptra is your best choice. You should be in good health and have realistic expectations.
SCULTRA® TREATMENT- HOW IT’S DONE.
Dr. Lee will use a tiny needle and pre-measured doses of Sculptra to inject pre-targeted areas of your face. Her injection techniques and her comprehensive knowledge of the complex facial anatomy, help to minimize discomfort, swelling and bruising. You may experience some, but it resolves quickly in a few hours to a day or so.

A new attitude toward aging is: we didn’t age overnight, why should we anti-age overnight? Sculptra provides long lasting, less obvious results so you defy aging subtly, but surely.
HOW CAN I BE SURE SCULPTRA IS RIGHT FOR ME?
There are several excellent options available today and each has its own merits. Depending upon your facial architecture, aging and health concerns, goals and other factors, Dr. Lee can determine if it is the right choice for you.
IS A SCULPTRA TREATMENT PAINFUL?
It involves injections and all injections involve some discomfort. Dr. Lee has specialized training, skill and much experience…he is an “expert injector” and is able to minimize discomfort. Local anesthetic may also be used if desired.
HOW LONG WILL THE RESULTS OF SCULPTRA LAST?
Sculptra users typically enjoy their natural looking beauty for up to 2 years and can maintain it on an individualized Sculptra treatment plan.
CAN IT BE COMBINED WITH A DERMAL FILLER FOR IMMEDIATE RESULTS?
Yes. Patients often have Sculptra done in combination with an injectable filler such as Juvederm, Restylane or Radiesse to get instant, but short term volume restoration, since Sculptra works gradually over time. Botox or Dysport is also used to smooth out facial lines and wrinkles. Dr. Lee will be glad to discuss the possibility of these treatments with you.
WILL INSURANCE PAY FOR SCULPTRA TREATMENTS?
Insurance does not cover cosmetic procedures. But financing is available and, we have information in our business office about it.
