Sculptra in Staten Island, NY
Dr. Decorato offers Sculptra® treatments to patients throughout New York and New Jersey, including Staten Island, Manhattan, Brooklyn, Elizabeth, Newark, Jersey City, and Perth Amboy.
Sculptra® esthetic injections are one of the most popular facial injections to get more cosmetic benefits. When you get this injectable, which is virtually painless, and a very short procedure, you have a natural looking appearance that looks rejuvenated, more youthful, and smoother with less lines and wrinkles. It is intended mostly for older adults that have lost natural collagen in their skin, and want better fullness, smoothness and youthfulness of their skin. In as little as three sessions over a few months, it can last 1-2 years or longer.
Is Sculptra® Right For Me?
Most adults in good physical health that have realistic expectations about the results make good candidates for Sculptra®. It is meant to improve your facial appearance, generally due to the aging process which decreases the production of natural collagen. If you find you have an increased amount of lines and wrinkles and a lack of fullness in your face, you are a great candidate for Sculptra®. If you have any questions, consult your doctor to learn more about this procedure and if it is safe for you.
The Cost Of Sculptra® In New York Or New Jersey
The total price for Sculptra® varies for each patient. Each case is unique, and pricing and financing will be discussed during your complimentary consultation at Dr. Decorato’s Staten Island office.
The Sculptra® procedure is similar to other injectable cosmetic treatments. The type of correction you are hoping to receive will signal exactly how many injections you need during the procedure. It is a non-invasive, non-surgical cosmetic option using a very thin needle for the injections. However, some patients do have some discomfort during the procedure and request a topical anesthetic to numb the area. If you have skin inflammation, you should wait until it heals before getting this treatment. During the procedure, the solution is inserted into different parts of your skin, which lasts about 30 minutes.
Recovery After Sculptra®
After having Sculptra® treatment, you may have some side effects such as bruising, swelling, redness or site discomfort. Talk to your doctor about possible pain relief medications you can take during this time. Some natural ways to relieve soreness, swelling and bruising are massaging the face gently for 5 minutes at a time, using an ice pack, especially during the first 24 hours after treatment, and avoiding direct sunlight. Your skin will be extra sensitive to the sun’s harsh UV rays, so you should avoid direct sunlight during the recovery period if at all possible. If you are concerned about recovery or potential side effects, speak to your doctor about them.
