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.

"I can’t say enough good things about Dr.Tamburrino and his wonderful staff, but I’ll try! I turned to Dr. Tamburrino for treatment at two very different times in my life. The first was when I suffered a devastating necrotic skin condition. Dr. Tamburrino treated me immediately and compassionately and saw me through a long period of healing. He is a healer in the truest sense of the word. The second was when I returned to Dr. Tamburrino for a neck and lower-face lift. The consultation, surgery and recovery left no doubt that he is a skilled and knowledgeable surgeon. Thanks to the doctor, I look rested, refreshed and years younger. Dr. Tamburrino is warm and has a great personality, but, at the same time, is very straight-forward about procedures and expectations.

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.
ACHIEVE A MORE Youthful Face
Utilizing advanced injectables, such as dermal fillers, patients are now able to improve the volume and smoothness of their complexion with minimally invasive Sculptra Aesthetic treatments at Tamburrino Plastic Surgery & Med Spa.
