What is Sculptra?
As people age, volume loss is inevitable, especially in the face as the cheeks tend to become hollow and flat over time. Dermatologist Dr. Vladyslava Doktor uses Sculptra Aesthetic, a dermal filler that allows for deeper and longer-lasting volume, to restore fullness to the cheeks and mid-face areas. In addition, Sculptra can reduce the appearance of shallow to deep lines and wrinkles, like laugh or smile lines. With a unique formula approved by the Food and Drug Administration, Sculptra increases natural collagen production so the skin will remain strong, even after Sculptra treatments.
Who Can Get Sculptra?
Sculptra is great for anyone who wants to add volume to their cheeks without the worry, expense, and downtime of surgical implants. Some candidates may have been born with flat cheeks, whereas other patients once had full cheeks that deflated with age. Sculptra dermal fillers can also help to improve fine to deep facial wrinkles and lines, like chin wrinkles, marionette lines, and laugh lines. Sculptra is also FDA approved for lipodystrophy in HIV patients, as well as for those with crepey skin.

How Does Sculptra Work?
Each patient will meet with dermatologist Dr. Vladyslava Doktor to discuss treatment goals, needs, and desired outcomes. After that initial consult, a treatment plan will be produced, and the patient will receive Sculptra injections in one of our procedure rooms at our Boston, MA office. A local anesthetic or numbing cream can be applied prior to cleansing and marking the sites to be injected if needed. As soon as the patient is prepared, Sculptra will be injected into the deeper skin layers at the chosen sites. For longer-lasting results, Dr. Vladyslava Doktor performs a series of four Sculptra injections, each performed at Skin Center Boston about three weeks apart.
What Happens After Receiving Sculptra?
Following their appointment, patients may have mild to moderate swelling, redness, tenderness, or bruising at their injection sites. These areas should heal on their own in 3 – 5 days. For faster healing, patients may want to apply a cold compress to the treated areas. Limiting UV exposure and using sun protection will be important post-procedure. Most patients will notice visible improvements immediately following their appointment with full results in about 3 – 5 months, as the natural production of collagen strengthens the complexion. When Sculptra is performed as a series over the course of 3 – 4 months, results may be visible for as long as two years.
"Dr. Doktor and staff were so welcoming! The overall quality of care and attentiveness made my experience the best I've had with a dermatology office. I received a chemical peel after being educated on them by Dr. Doktor and absolutely loved it. My skin is glowing and so fresh!"- K.C. / Google / Jan 27, 2021
"I was looking for a Dermatologist to do my first filling (botox), I was nervous as I wanted to keep a natural look, keep my expression while smiling but getting ready of the annoying wrinkles! One friend recommended me Dr. Vlada. She was so kind and patient with me! As she saw that I was apprehensive because it was my first time she did the treatment in two steps with a break of two weeks, so we could see better how the muscle reacted and retouch if needed. That gave me another level of comfort and trust! And loved the results!! Doctors for me shouldn’t be just professionals on what they do, they should also hear the concerns and wishes of the patients and adapt to that! If you are like me, you are in good hands with Dr. Vlada!"- A.D. / Google / Jan 21, 2021
"I was very hesitant about scheduling an appointment at first because I don't particular like when someone touches my face, never mind doing any type of procedures. After reading multiple reviews I've decided to come and see Dr. Doktor. She took her time to listen to my concerns and explained how, why and provided multiple solutions. Dr. Doktor is very pleasant, compassionate and considerate. Skin Center location is very welcoming and charming place. My entire experience was very pleasant. I am looking forward to my future visits."- E.C. / Google / Jan 14, 2021
