what is Sculptra?
The loss of volume occurs naturally throughout the aging process. This is especially noticeable in the mid-face as the cheeks tend to become hollow and flat. To address this commonplace issue faced by many, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Joseph Tamburrino offers Sculptra Aesthetic, a poly-L-lactic acid dermal filler that creates longer-lasting and more dramatic volume in the apples of the cheeks. In addition to improving the contour of the mid-face, Sculptra can reduce the appearance of fine to deep wrinkles and lines, including the nasolabial folds (also known as laugh or smile lines) that run from the outside of the nose to the corners of the lips. With a unique gel formula approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration), Sculptra encourages the natural production of collagen. This means that even after you stop treatments, your skin will still be healthier compared to its condition before you began to receive Sculptra injections.

"Eeep!! I was more than blessed to win the Valentine's Day Giveaway for free Restylane in my lips!! First off- the staff there are so welcoming, sweet, and helpful. The office is beautiful and very clean. During my experience, the staff and Dr. Tamburrino made me feel extremely comfortable with everything, as this was my first time getting Restylane in my lips. The process took about an hour and everything went smoothly. I did not have any complications with the Restylane after the injections. I saw my true results after two weeks. I iced my lips off and on for about a week, as I had some swelling and bruising- which is normal! I highly recommend Dr. Tamburrino :)"- B.F. / Google / Feb 25, 2022

who can get sculptra?
Sculptra is great for anyone who wants to add contour in their cheeks without the need for implants and invasive surgery. Some candidates for this treatment could have naturally flat cheeks while others have experienced facial deflation with age. Sculptra may also help to treat shallow to deep facial wrinkles and lines, like chin wrinkles, nasolabial folds, and marionette lines. Since Sculptra works to increase the body's natural production of collagen, many women and men who receive these injections will see an improvement in not only their appearance but the overall health of their complexion as well.
how does sculptra work?
Following your one-on-one consultation to develop your personalized treatment plan, you may have your Sculptra injections performed in our private procedure room. The injector may use a local anesthetic or numbing cream before cleaning and marking the areas to be injected. As soon as you are prepared, the filler will be administered in the deeper layers of the skin at the selected sites. For longer-lasting results, Dr. Tamburrino performs a series of four injections with each session performed at Tamburrino Plastic Surgery & Med Spa about three weeks apart.
What to Expect
After your appointment, you may experience mild to moderate redness, swelling, tenderness, or bruising at the injection areas that should subside on its own in a few days. To encourage healing, you can apply a cold compress to the injection sites. You should avoid UV exposure as much as possible after your appointment and always use sun protection. Many patients will see clear improvements right after their Sculptra treatment with final results developing after a few months. It will take several weeks for the increase of your natural collagen production to strengthen the skin. If Sculptra is performed as a series of injections over the course of 3 – 4 months, results may last for up to two years.
