Introduction to Sculptra

Volume loss, wrinkles, and sagging are common side effects that come with aging, but the reason it happens is that your body stops producing as much collagen and elastin. While there are many “options” on the market that are supposed to increase your collagen, why stop at increasing it when you can reignite your body’s ability to produce? With Sculptra filler from the practice of Vickram Tandon, MD, you can do exactly that! To learn more about this revolutionary cosmetic treatment, keep reading below.

What is Sculptra?

Sculptra is an FDA-approved, non-surgical treatment that uses a specialty filler designed to provide additional volume to your face while promoting new collagen production, keeping your skin smooth and tight. The filler is made from a Poly-L-Lactic Acid that is both biocompatible and biodegradable. The filler will gradually be absorbed into your facial tissue which triggers your tissue to create new collagen. The results are natural and subtle, providing a youthful fullness and glow to your face.

Sculptra is commonly used in the following areas of the face:

  • Cheeks
  • Jawline
  • Marionettes
  • Nasolabial folds
  • Temples
  • Or any other area with lost facial volume!

Non-Surgical Butt Lift

In addition to being used for your face, Sculptra can be used to tighten, lift, and provide your buttocks with additional volume. It’s a great treatment for patients who are unsure or unwilling to get surgical treatment such as a Butt Lift, Brazilian Butt Lift, or other types of implants. Dr. Tandon will strategically inject the Sculptra filler in various points of your butt to give it a perkier appearance.

What’s the first step?

Take the first step with Vickram Tandon, MD Plastic Surgery

The first step to getting a Boston Sculptra treatment at the office of Vickram Tandon, MD is to schedule your initial consultation. When you come in for this appointment, you will have the opportunity to discuss your concerns, goals, and expectations with Dr. Tandon.

Dr. Tandon will evaluate your facial anatomy, assess your skin condition, and determine if Sculptra is the right treatment for you. He will explain the Sculptra procedure in detail, including the number of sessions needed, the expected timeline for treatment, recovery, and results, and any potential risks or side effects.

Once you and Dr. Tandon have agreed on the treatment plan, which includes the areas being targeted and the number of sessions you will need, he will create your custom treatment plan. Once this plan is made, you can receive your first injection immediately after your consultation, or our Patient Coordinator can help you reschedule if you would prefer some additional time.

What to expect on the day of Sculptra?

Your Sculptra treatment will take place in our office, where you will be administered either local anesthesia, a topical cream, or even just a cold compress to numb the area and ensure minimal discomfort. This will be pre-determined during your consultation.

Dr. Tandon will use a skinny needle and syringe to inject exact amounts of the Sculptra solution into your targeted areas. Once the two of you are satisfied with the amount of filler, your session will end with a “mini-massage” on the treated area to gently disperse the solution for a more even appearance. We will also discuss proper techniques on how to properly massage yourself at home.

Depending on the level of change you are attempting, this treatment will take about an hour to complete. It’s such a quick experience that many patients refer to it as the “lunch break” procedure.

Sculptra recovery

There will be zero-to-little downtime after each Sculptra treatment, so you can continue with your normal routine following your injections. Please keep in mind that it is normal to see some redness, swelling, tenderness, mild pain, or light bruising in the treated area, but this should clear up within a week or so. You can use a cold pack and over-the-counter medication to help alleviate any mild pain and swelling in the first 24 hours.

You should be able to notice your results immediately, however, optimal results are achieved after several treatments that are performed once a month, with the exact number of treatments needed will be determined during your consultation. The number of sessions could change depending on how your body reacts to the injections, so don’t worry if you’re not getting the expected results immediately.

Once you receive the adequate amount of injections, your treated areas will look more toned, smoother, and in some cases, even have reduced cellulite. The results can last anywhere between two and five years, depending on the patient’s age. Touch-up appointments are recommended every couple of years to maintain results.

How much does Sculptra cost in Boston, MA

The cost of Sculptra in Boston is dependent on the number of injections and the amount you will need to meet your goals.
