Sculptra, available from Khrom Dermatology & Aesthetics in Brooklyn, NY, is designed for those who want a subtle lift that lasts. It is formulated with microbeads of PLLA (poly-L-lactic acid), which is a synthetic biocompatible material. It stimulates natural collagen development, for gradual, natural, and long lasting volumization.
A different kind of dermal filler
Most dermal fillers work in similar ways. They are thick gels, injected in sufficient quantity to instantly lift tissue. The results gradually diminish as the product dissolved. Sculptra is different. It does not directly add volume. Instead, it gives your body the tools to create its own volume, naturally and subtly, with results lasting up to two years.
Sculptra is a collagen stimulator, which has been used in many countries since 1999. It was first FDA approved in 2004 for the treatment of facial fat loss in HIV patients, and later gained approval for cosmetic use. More than 150,000 patients around the world have received Sculptra treatment, and it has an excellent record of safety
About the procedure
Because the ingredients are biocompatible and not sourced from animal products, allergies are not a concern. Therefore, skin testing is not needed prior to treatment. Each Sculptra session consists of a few small, gentle, precisely located injections.
There is no immediately noticeable difference after a Sculptra treatment, which makes it a great option for people who don’t want friends and co-workers to know that they’ve had cosmetic treatment. Instead, the treated area gradually fills out as your body creates new collagen, for subtle, yet significant, antiaging. The number of treatments may vary, but most patients need three or four sessions scheduled a few months apart.
