Sculptra is a injectable filler that is used to decrease the presence of wrinkles, fine lines, and creases by helping the skin increase its natural production of collagen. Much like other fillers, Sculptra is injected into designated areas of the face to increase volume and give patients a rejuvenated and youthful appearance. Sculptra treatment is an outpatient procedure that allows patients to go back to their regular routines without any downtime. Results are long lasting and can be seen immediately after the procedure. Dr. Marguerite Bernett, an Irvine cosmetic surgeon, is eager to discuss with you the benefits of this procedure and help you achieve your cosmetic goals.

"It is hard to put into words how very happy I am now that I have had the Mommy Makeover. After all of the exercising and dieting I did after my last pregnancy, the loose tummy skin and drooping, smaller breasts and stubborn fat, uhhh so frustrating. So with Dr. Bernett's s t outstanding treatment and very caring manner, I feel like a new person! There is no other way to describe it. I am happy being a mom of course even before the surgery, but now I am so very happy with my improved look : )"- Anonymous / RateMDs / May 31, 2015
"I feel like a new person after my Mommy Makeover! I recently was treated by Dr. Bernett, and I couldn't be happier. After my last pregnancy my body changed a lot, not only weight gain, also drooping breast and the loose tummy skin. I did a good amount of exercise and was careful with my diet, but the drooping, and loose skin did not improve much. Plus some areas of fat are just darned stubborn! Now that those trouble areas are lifted and tightened, I truly feel so much better. Dr. Bernett really took care of me and was careful and caring all the way. Everything looks great, and I am feeling so much better !!!"- H.M. / Wellness / May 30, 2015
"I am very happy with the procedures Dr. Bernett did for me. I had a face and neck tightening procedure which removed some fat and tightened my skin. As I am getting older, I also gained a little weight. My cheeks and chin were sagging, and I was getting a double chin. Now, I look ten years younger and feel better, too! I did a laser firming treatment for my entire face and my skin looks really beautiful. Several of my colleagues from work also went to see Dr. Bernett after they saw my results and were very satisfied. She is professional, very thorough and what I really love is that she takes her time and she cares."- M.N. / Yelp / Apr 22, 2015

What to Expect
Sculptra is performed inside our plastic surgery center during an in-office appointment. The injection sites will be marked, and the skin will be numbed with a local anesthetic. From there, Sculptra will be injected through a small syringe. The procedure is mostly painless, but any discomfort will be controlled with cold compressions and ice packs. The number of syringes used to attain the desired results will be discussed prior to treatment. The dosage will depend on the amount of wrinkles and the depth of them.
There will be some mild swelling and redness at the injection sites immediately following a Sculptra treatment. These side effects will subside quickly and normal activities can be resumed; however, exercise should be avoided for 24 hours. Sculptra is different from other injectable fillers because the results do not happen immediately. They take place over time because of the ongoing collagen production process. The final results can usually be seen a few weeks after the treatment and will typically last up to 2 years. Sculptra is the only long-lasting filler to improve and enhance the shape and look of the face.
The average cost for each Sculptra treatment typically ranges between $700 and $1,000 per syringe of medication. Multiple syringes may be needed. For maximum effects, 2-3 treatments are recommended over a spaced out period of time.
