Sculptra® in Los Altos, CA
If you reside in San Jose, Palo Alto, or the surrounding communities of California and are seeking a non-surgical cosmetic treatment that provides long-lasting natural-looking results, consider Sculptra®, an injectable filler treatment provided by Mittelman Plastic Surgery, located in Los Altos, and led by board-certified facial plastic surgeon Harry Mittelman, MD.
What Is Sculptra®?
Sculptra® is an FDA-approved dermal filler treatment that yields amazing results after just one treatment. Sculptra® is designed to treat loss of skin volume and elasticity due to low levels of collagen. When administered by an experienced specialist such as Dr. Mittelman, results may last for up to two years as the natural skin tissue is restored.
Benefits of Sculptra®
The primary benefit of Sculptra® is the fact that the results last longer than other treatments, maintaining a youthful and firm facial appearance for two years or longer.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Sculptra®?
Almost any adult patient in generally good health who wishes to treat wrinkles, lines or a loss of volume on their face may be a suitable candidate for this treatment. Sculptra® is an alternative to plastic surgery and procedures with a higher risk of complication and longer recovery periods.
How Should I Prepare For Sculptra®?
During your consultation, please inform Dr. Mittelman of any allergies or other medical conditions you may have, any medication you are taking or recent injections you may have received. We recommend that patients avoid alcohol and anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), such as ibuprofen and aspirin for at least three or four days prior to their treatment.
How Is Sculptra® Administered?
Dr. Mittelman will apply a topical anesthetic to the injection sites to prevent any possible discomfort. Once the sites are numb, Dr. Mittelman will inject doses of Sculptra® just under the outermost layers of skin. Some patients may require one or more treatments to achieve their cosmetic goals.
How Much Does Sculptra® Cost In San Jose?
Sculptra® is an elective cosmetic procedure, which generally is not covered by health insurance. Mittelman Plastic Surgery accepts a wide variety of payment options including personalized financing plans and accepts checks, cash, and all major credit cards.
