Board-certified Plastic Surgeon Dr. Theodore T. Foley offers Sculptra at Cosmetic & Plastic Surgery of Central Pennsylvania in Camp Hill, PA, to hide the effects of aging. Sculptra is an FDA-approved dermal filler that is composed of polylactic acid which works to decrease the appearance of facial wrinkles and fine lines. It is also used to restore volume in the cheeks and lower jaw. This is an ideal treatment for those who are not ready for a surgical facelift. Unlike other dermal fillers, Sculptra is superior because it produces long-lasting results that have been known to last 2 – 3 years. During your consultation, the various dermal fillers will be discussed in detail to determine which one is best for your aesthetic goals.
Best Candidates for Sculptra
Sculptra treatments are best for any candidate who suffers from wrinkles and deep facial lines due to aging. Based on past usage of Sculptra, typical candidates for this treatment are between 30 and 55 years old. However, younger candidates may seek this treatment to reverse the effects of aging caused by personal and environmental factors such as smoking, drug use, and sun exposure. Candidates will need to understand that the cost is significantly higher than other wrinkle fillers, however the results last much longer.
"Best plastic surgeon in the area! After exploring several options, I chose Dr. Foley because he was very qualified and knowledgeable. He was caring, professional and did a great job. He talked me through the procedure step by step. His staff was amazing and caring as well. He made sure I was pain free the entire time and put me at ease. I would highly recommend him to anyone seeking plastic surgery."- Anonymous / Office Visit / Jun 28, 2017
"I was referred to Dr. Foley through a friend for removal of basal cell cancer on my upper lip. Originally, I was scheduled for MOHS through dermatology at a local medical teaching facility. The EOB - for the teaching facility - for the biopsy and initial visit showed very high charges, including a "facility fee" of over $700. I was informed that I had to wait almost five months for the procedure. That's when I started looking for alternatives. Thankfully, I found Dr. Foley. Cancer removed, clean edges, no scar and the procedure was done the week I called for an appointment. The cost? A small fraction of what is charged at the medical teaching facility. Did I mention the staff? Very professional and friendly. Lesson learned - getting the best health care solution does not have to be expensive."- M.S. / Yelp / Mar 06, 2020

Sculptra is an outpatient treatment administered in our office. Prior to treatment, the face will be cleansed and the injection sites will be marked with a washable pen. The filler product will be injected under the skin and gently massaged so that it fills the area as needed. Sculptra is generally administered in multiple layers until the desired look and contour is achieved. The length of this treatment time can last up to a full hour. In addition to numbing the injection areas prior to treatment, this particular filler is used to recontour specific areas so the injections must be performed carefully and precisely. For the best results, some patients will need to return within a couple of weeks for additional treatment because it sometimes takes more than one appointment to attain optimal results.
What to Expect with Sculptra
Patients should expect to see results immediately after treatment, however, Sculptra is a filler product that may take more than one treatment session to attain the perfect results. After each treatment, patients can expect to have some mild swelling and redness at and around the injection sites, which will subside within a few short hours. Patients are also advised to follow all aftercare instructions which include refraining from exercise for 24 hours and avoid applying pressure to the face. Our office will give each patient a full list of instructions and expectations prior to treatment. Patients will be able to immediately return to their regular daily routines following each treatment.
