What is Sculptra?
Many men and women between the ages of 30 – 50 live with visible signs of aging, like cheeks that look hollow and flat. Lincoln Park Aesthetics treats the mid-face with Sculptra Aesthetic, which is approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Our team can inject this poly-L-lactic acid-based filler for deeper and longer-lasting volume in the apples of the cheeks. In addition to plumping the mid-face, Sculptra can reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles, including the nasolabial folds that start at the sides of your nose and go to the corners of your mouth.

"Upon my 1st visit w/Maggie Romano, she was a class act, knowledgeable, informative and professional. I have followed her since. She understood when I told her I didnt want to alter my appearance and rather enhance it. Patiently and after explaining my options she administered Dysport the (botox). I was impressed with the final softening of my lines a week later. Following this and trusting her full heartedly, I agreed and looked forward to the full face Sculptra treatment. The results were amazing. I believe Maggie is like a painter creating a masterpiece on canvas. Her expertise of facial anatomy and product capabilities allow her to master each individuals own uniqueness with artistic accuracy. Anyone who wouldn’t appreciate her skill isn’t worth taking up her valuable appointment time."- L.R. / Yelp / Apr 10, 2016
Can I have Sculptra Injections?
Sculptra is ideal for anyone who wants to boost fullness in their cheeks without surgery. Candidates may have been born with flat cheeks while others experience volume loss with age. Sculptra injections can also improve the appearance of facial lines and wrinkles, such as the nasolabial folds, marionette lines, and chin wrinkles. Since Sculptra prompts the natural production of collagen in the skin, many will see a visible improvement in the appearance and overall health of the treated complexion.
Our Sculptra Injection Technique
After your consultation to develop your custom plan for treatment, you can receive your injections in one of our private injection rooms. Your experienced injector may use a local anesthetic or numbing cream before sterilizing and marking the areas to be injected. As soon as you are prepared, Sculptra will be injected deeper into skin layers than other fillers. For longer-lasting results, we perform a series of four Sculptra treatments each performed at Lincoln Park Aesthetics about three weeks apart.
What to Expect
After your appointment, you may have mild or moderate redness, swelling, bruising, or tenderness at the sites of injections that should resolve naturally in 3 – 5 days. To encourage healing, you may apply a cold compress to the injected areas. You should avoid UV exposure after your appointment and always use sunscreen. Most patients will notice improvements immediately following their injections with ultimate results appearing after 3 – 5 months, as the increased collagen production strengthens the skin. If Sculptra is performed as a series of injections over the course of 3 – 4 months, results may last as long as two years.
