Sculptra® offers patients a non-surgical option for facial contouring and rejuvenation. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Cap Lesesne is considered a premier provider of Sculptra® in New York and has helped many patients achieve a more balanced, youthful-looking facial appearance with this injectable treatment.
What Is Sculptra®?
Sculptra® is an FDA-approved dermal filler that can revitalize the facial appearance by adding volume and restoring firmer, smoother skin. It can effectively treat many signs of aging, including:
- Deep lines
- Bags under eyes
Unlike many other fillers, such as those with hyaluronic acid as the active ingredient, Sculptra® injections do more than just add or replace lost volume. The main ingredient in Sculptra® is poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), which works to jumpstart the body’s natural collagen formation process. Over time, the effects of increased collagen production will appear in the form of fuller, healthier-looking skin.
Am I a Good Candidate for Sculptra®?
Sculptra® is an excellent choice for many people who want to enhance their facial appearance by minimizing signs of aging. Both men and women who are in good health can be good candidates for this injectable treatment.
However, a consultation with Dr. Lesesne is necessary to find out if Sculptra® is the best way to accomplish your cosmetic goals. During this appointment, Dr. Lesesne will ask you about medications you take, your medical history, and your aesthetic concerns, so he can identify the right treatment approach for your needs.
Sculptra® is not ideal for anyone immunocompromised, allergic to PLLA, or those prone to irregular scarring. Women who are currently pregnant or breastfeeding will be advised to pursue alternative treatment options and/or postpone their Sculptra® procedure.
What to Expect During a Sculptra® Treatment
At the start of your Sculptra® procedure, Dr. Lesesne will map out the optimal injection sites, and the treatment area will be cleansed. If needed, a local anesthetic can be applied to prevent discomfort during the injection process. Dr. Lesesne can then perform the necessary Sculptra® injections for your needs.
I recently had my procedure done by Dr. Lesesne. It’s been absolutely amazing experience with him and everyone in the office. Unlike other plastic surgeons in the city, he was willing to listen my list of concerns/questions and spend time explaining what would be the be the best result. The surgery and recovery were so flawless resulting in the best possibly way. Thank you Dr. Lesesne and Diane.
