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.

"There are no words describe how it feels to be a middle-aged woman that worked my whole life & I feel like time has taken away my beauty. I decided to take some risks and look into the world of plastic surgery. I work in the beauty industry had to have seen a lot of facelifts and a lot of really bad but jobs I work personally with three high and local Newport Coast plastic surgeons and still was never impressed. When I met Dr Bernette she was such an intelligent , calm, aristocratic loving beautiful woman! After my exam I realized how genuinely sincere she was when she told me-genuinely how beautiful I was. I really believe her.... said there are a few things that she would do 'procedures' that she suggested ( that were non-surgical )that would erase the looks of stress and tiredness, that even when I had slept for solid 12hrs a night, would not go away! I have gained such an education from her about what I eat and how that I feel projects such an inner beauty to come out! With her expertise and some of the most non-invasive and non-painful injectables! Also the help of The products she chooses to inject , she has a wide variety of choices that are all-inclusive with Hydrolonic acid ( probably spelling it terribly) and collagen have all doubled my experience of looking the way I want to look! Dr. B is a healer. I'm a single mother looking to find a healthy relationship ... but Before Dr. B I had been held back, feeling that my outer appearance was no longer attractive. NOW I feel so much more confidence when I put my hand out to shake someone's hand or smile and I feel like I don't look like I haven't slept in three days LOL. Thank you Dr B into your amazing staff it's a game changer I would recommend her Procedures and techniques to anyone! Love & Light -Hxo"- H.H. / Yelp / May 19, 2018

"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
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.
