“The experience was really seamless. Dr. Pearlman and his staff were very professional and helpful from start to end.”

What is Sculptra?

Sculptra Aesthetic, also known as Poly-L-Lactic Acid, is a synthetic sugar made up of many individual lactic acid units. Lactic acid is a substance that is found naturally occurring in your body.

Dr. Pearlman's Sculptra Aesthetic in NYC is a safe, synthetic, biocompatible product that restores global facial volume. Unlike traditional fillers, when injected deep into the dermis of the skin, Sculptra Aesthetic stimulates the body’s own collagen, creating fresh, new collagen and replacing that which is damaged with age.

What are some of Sculptra’s benefits?

  • No downtime or discomfort
  • No anesthesia
  • Safe, effective and FDA-approved to fight aging
  • Short treatment time
  • Effective as part of a non-surgical facelift, blepharoplasty or rhinoplasty
  • Helps to reduce wrinkles, fine lines, creases and folds
  • Can achieve non-surgical cheek augmentation
  • Helps boost collagen regrowth
  • Improves confidence in one’s image
  • Nicely fills in facial scarring
  • Long-lasting results
  • Natural-looking outcomes

What sets Sculptra apart from other facial fillers?

Sculptra Aesthetic ultimately restores the youthful contours of the face by providing a significant increase in both volume and skin thickness. By strategically restoring collagen to specific areas, this process allows us to sculpt the face by correcting hollows, wrinkles, and folds, and highlighting your natural contours.

Although the results are gradual, the subtle changes improve over time with repeated treatment. Most patients require a series of 2-3 treatment sessions, spaced 4-6 weeks apart. The gradual effects of Sculptra Aesthetic will build up over the course of each or your treatments in our New York office, providing a natural and often undetected improvement in facial appearance.

What conditions can Sculptra treat?

Sculptra Aesthetic is used to treat all areas of volume loss such as the temples, mid-face, nasolabial folds and marionette lines. The wrinkling that occurs when one smiles can usually be addressed with Sculptra Aesthetic as well, as it increases both the thickness and elasticity of your skin. More superficial wrinkles cannot however be treated with Sculptra Aesthetic, and it is not recommended for use under the eyes, or in the lips.

While the exact areas to be treated with Sculptra vary from patient to patient, the consultation process for your Sculptra in New York will ensure that we address your individual needs. Sculptra Aesthetic has a FDA approval of lasting up to 2 years making it one of the longest lasting options for true pan-facial rejuvenation.

What is a Sculptra Aesthetic treatment like?

Sculptra Aesthetic comes as a powder that is mixed with sterile water for injection. This needs to be done several days prior to treatment to ensure proper hydration and dispersion of the product. We also add local anesthetic, lidocaine, to the Sculptra mix before we use it making the treatment very comfortable.
