Learn more about Scupltra.
A wonderful product which subtly restores youthful volume.
What is Sculptra? It is finely powdered poly- L- lactic acid which is reconstituted in sterile water prior to injection.
How much Sculptra will I need? Dr. Baughman advises 1 vial per decade of life. A person in their 40’s benefits from 4 vials, and someone in their 60’s would do best with 6 vials. There is some variation depending upon a person’s facial structure. Typically you will receive three treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart.
How soon will I see results? Be patient. Because Sculptra stimulates collagen growth, you will see minimal difference after the first session, then more after the second and third.
How long does Sculptra last? Improvement is seen at least 2 years after injection. Over time, with additional volume loss, you may want 1-2 vials every year or so to maintain the effect.
What are the side effects? Similar to other fillers, side effects include bruising, infection, and swelling. Occasionally firm nodules develop months after injection. They can be treated with massage; rarely they need injected or removed at your physician’s office. You may be asked to massage the injection sites for several days after injection – this helps minimize the risk of nodule development.

Ultherapy is a safe, non-surgical ultrasound treatment that counteracts the effects of time and gravity on your skin. Ultherapy uses the body’s own regenerative response to gently and gradually lift skin on the eyebrow, under the chin and on the neck, and smooth lines and wrinkles on the décolletage.
What is unique about Ultherapy?
Ultherapy is the only non-invasive treatment cleared by the FDA to actually lift skin. Ultherapy is also the only cosmetic procedure to use ultrasound imaging, which allows practitioners to see the layers of tissue targeted during the treatment to ensure the energy is deposited to where it will be most beneficial.
With the addition of the new Ultherapy® Décolletage Treatment, Ultherapy is also now the only non-invasive procedure specifically indicated by the FDA to improve lines and wrinkles on the chest.
Who is a good candidate for Ultherapy?
A good Ultherapy candidate has mild to moderate skin laxity where the skin begins to feel and look less firm. Examples include a lowered eyebrow line, loose skin on the neck, sagging under the chin, and lines or wrinkles on the chest. Of course, the best way to find out if you’re an Ultherapy candidate is to consult Dr. Baughman directly.
