A simple dermal filler, or a magic rejuvenating elixir? Sculptra® is a truly amazing, unique product that is designed to take years off the face.
Sculptra is a cosmetic injectable filler that is made with biodegradable and biocompatible poly-L-lactic acid and water. It has been FDA-approved to treat aging of the skin as well as loss of collagen, bone, and volume that occurs with age. Sculptra treatments in Brooklyn are for patients who want to look younger and return the youthful glow to their skin without looking like they’ve had anything done. Sculptra is also for those who want to prevent the signs of aging from developing.
While Sculptra is often referred to as a dermal filler, in reality it’s a volumizer. Sculptra is quite different than regular fillers because it triggers collagen production — which other fillers don’t do — and its results are not instant, as with other fillers.

Sculptra treatments are for patients who want to look younger and return the youthful glow to their skin without looking like they’ve had anything done.
As the years go by, our body’s collagen-producing process begins to slow down, which makes our skin start to appear saggier, more hollow, and more aged. When Sculptra is injected into target areas of the face, it gradually restores volume because it stimulates the collagen process by using the active ingredient of poly-L-lactic acid.
Besides delivering outstanding results for the face, Sculptra can also be used for the buttocks. In fact, Sculptra is so popular for enhancing the contour of the butt that it even has its own name: the Sculptra butt lift. This is an excellent option for those who want more volume in this area, whether it’s just to fill in hollow areas or whether it’s for a more dramatic change. The Sculptra butt lift provides a great alternative to the Brazilian butt lift, which is more invasive than simple injections.
If you’re interested in restoring the youthful contour of your face, Sculptra in Brooklyn may be the perfect treatment for your needs. Those who are the best candidates for this treatment are those who:
Treatment with Sculptra in Brooklyn at our medi-spa takes about 20 minutes. The area may be numbed with an anesthetic cream before the injections are administered. Any discomfort from the injections will be minimal because we use lidocaine anesthetic in all our Sculptra injections.
After the injections, we will massage the treated area, and we will also ask you to continue massaging your face for a few days after. This is to help the product properly spread. The treatment is highly individualized, and depending on your skin’s condition, your age, and any previous treatments you may have had, you may require more than one Sculptra session. These are typically performed 6 to 8 weeks apart.
There is no downtime after a Sculptra treatment, although some patients will have swelling immediately after each treatment. This swelling is minimal and usually fades within a few days. As with any injectable treatment, there may also be some redness, tenderness, and/or bruising at the injection sites. These side effects are usually very minimal and will subside within a few days (if not sooner).
Since it takes time for our body to build new collagen, the results with Sculptra are not immediate like they are with hyaluronic acid fillers. Results with Sculptra take about two months to appear. However, once the results begin, they can last for two years. Dr. Giyaur will see you in a follow-up appointment in about 10 months to see if you need a touch-up. At Juno Aesthetics, we feel that regular touch-ups are important to keep looking young and to continue giving your body the stimulus it needs to keep producing collagen.
When we feel good about ourselves, we become more confident and are able to enjoy life with renewed pleasure. At Juno Aesthetics, we can help you achieve that.
