With the much advancement in non-surgical injectable treatments, surgery isn’t the only option to address facial aging. Sculptra Aesthetic is an injectable that can provide subtle, natural-looking results of a youthful complexion.

What Is Sculptra Aesthetic?

Designed with poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), this formula replaces lost collagen proteins, the foundation for smooth and youthful skin. With aging, our bodies gradually decrease their level of collagen production, resulting in the formation of wrinkles, folds and lines.

Sculptra Aesthetic works over time with your body to help stimulate the production of collagen deep within the dermis which results in restoring your skin’s inner structure and facial volume. This innovative injectable is FDA-approved to restore facial volume and correct fine lines and wrinkles.


Who Is An Ideal Candidate For Sculptra Aesthetic?

Men and women looking for non-surgical wrinkle reduction may be a good candidate for Sculptra Aesthetics. Ideal candidates include those who:

How Is Sculptra Aesthetic Injected?

Dr. Chernoff is a certified injection specialist. For more than two decades, he has been training doctors and nurses in advanced injection techniques. Sculptra Aesthetic is administered in a safe professional environment at Chernoff Cosmetic Surgery in Santa Rosa, CA.

Treatment times will vary, depending on the number of areas you are having treated. Since this is a minimally invasive procedure, you will not need anesthesia. A fine needle is used to inject Sculptra Aesthetic deep in the dermis. Dr. Chernoff’s certified injectors will apply ice and pressure to the treated area to minimize the risk of bruising. These symptoms will dissipate quickly. At Chernoff Cosmetic Surgery, patients receiving any injectable are seen one-week post-injection.*

Is Sculptra Aesthetic Safe?

Sculptra Aesthetic was FDA-approved in 2004 for the treatment of facial fat loss, marionette lines, smiles lines and chin wrinkles. Dr. Chernoff and his staff are committed to ensuring that your procedure is a safe one.

What Results Can I Expect?

Sculptra Aesthetic has been shown to create results of youthful-looking, vibrant skin that last up to two years.* However, an optimal series of treatment sessions may be in order to see such results. Ultimately, results will vary from person to person.

Some patients experience mild-to-moderate bruising, as well as swelling, but these side effects typically resolve quickly. Typically, results will be visible after any swelling with continued improvement over the next few weeks. Patients can return to work and most other normal activities directly following the procedure. At Chernoff Cosmetic Surgery, patients receiving any injectable are seen one-week post-injection.*
