Sculptra Treatment for Facial Fat Loss
Sculptra™ is an injectable product used to fill in sunken areas of the face in patients who suffer from lipoatrophy or the loss of fat beneath the skin known as “facial wasting.” Injected into the deep dermis layer of the skin, Sculptra increases skin thickness over time to improve the appearance of sunken cheeks, hollow eyes, indentations, and wrinkles. Because Sculptra’s main component is poly-L-lactic acid, a synthetic polymer that has been used for twenty years in surgical products such as dissolvable sutures and bone screws, there is no need for allergy testing.
Sculptra treatment results can last up to two years. Possible side effects include those normally associated with injections such as bleeding, tenderness, redness, bruising, or swelling as well as the appearance of small bumps beneath the skin.

Dear Dr DeJoseph, I wanted you to know what a wonderful experience I had in your office on Saturday. You made me fell very much at ease with your caring attitude and humor. I came in for Radiesse and, although I had had Radiesse and Sculptra 6 or 7 times previously at other doctors’ offices, this was the best result by far I had ever had. I could tell the way you were performing the procedure that you were an artist! I had no discomfort, and no redness or bruising as with previous doctors. You will be seeing me again in the future when I need touch ups or any other procedures and I will be driving over 400 miles from Florida just to see you! Thank you so much You gave me just the “lift” I needed.
