"Dr Schwartz is fantastic! He has the kindest bedside manner, as he is is patient, making sure to explain everything and answer all my questions. I felt extremely comfortable with him the entire time (despite the fact that I am usually very shy, especially with my body). My priority is to keep things natural and Dr Schwartz was on the same page. He has incredible skill. I could not be happier with my result!"- R.L. / Google / Feb 07, 2019
"I went with Dr.Schwartz over a year ago for labia reduction surgery. He was such a kind and caring Dr. Answered all my questions even questions I didn't know I had. He went into full detail on what to expect and gave me realistic goals. No false promises were made. I wanted the labia shorter be he I formed me that any shorter would cause nerve damage and I could lose feeling. And the end results were amazing. Recovery was fast and him and his team were there for me any time I needed them or had concerns. It was the best decision I ever made. And made it with the right doctor."- J.M. / Yelp / Feb 11, 2020
"I had a phone consultation with Dr. Schwartz to discuss having surgery. Ultimately I chose a different clinic because they offered me a payment plan, but I cannot express how professional and kind Dr. Schwartz was when he spoke with me. Thank you for being so respectful and easing my fears!"- R.M. / Google / Dec 16, 2019
"By far one of the best plastic surgeon around LA. After the first consultation appointment I had with him, I had no doubt I’d wanted to have my TT and lipo performed by him. One month later I’m already healing from my surgery. Dr. Schwartz and his staff (Amanda, Sasha, Maricella, Robin, and all of the others) don’t need to try too hard to give an excellent customer service and attention to their patients; it’s already natural in them. Thank you so much."- V.C. / Google / Dec 12, 2019
"I recently visited Dr. Schwartz's office for Botox injections upon a referral from a friend. I have to say after about 20 years of getting Botox, Danielle was amazing and the results are fantastic. As a man, I always aim for the results to look as natural as possible, and they are! Danielle was professional, kind, and delivered her promise of having me look natural. Your office should be delighted to have her! You've gained a client, Thank you!"- D.D. / Yelp / Dec 05, 2019
Sculptra Procedure Technique
Sculptra Aesthetic is ideal for anyone who wants to boost fullness in their mid-face without surgical implants. Candidates may have been born with thin cheeks, whereas other patients have volume loss with age or weight loss. Sculptra dermal filler may also help to treat fine to severe facial wrinkles and lines, such as marionette lines, nasolabial folds, and chin wrinkles. Since Sculptra's formula works to boost the natural production of collagen in the skin, most Sculptra patients will see an improvement in the appearance and overall health of their complexion. Sculptra is one of the more powerful dermal fillers on the market and is used by Dr. Schwartz for patients who show moderate to advanced signs of aging. It is longer lasting filler and is a great option for patients before considering a surgical procedure.
Sculpt A Youthful Face
Following your consult to determine your custom plan for treatment, you can receive your injections in our minor procedure room. Your injector can use a local anesthetic or numbing cream prior to cleaning and marking the areas to be injected. As soon as you are prepared, Sculptra is injected in the deeper skin layers at the chosen sites. For longer-lasting results, Dr. Jaime S. Schwartz suggests a series of four treatments that are each done at our office around three weeks apart.
What to Expect with Sculptra®
Following your treatment, you may experience mild or moderate swelling, redness, bruising, or tenderness at the sites of injections that should heal on its own in 3 – 5 days. To speed healing, you may apply a cold compress to the treated areas. You should limit UV exposure after your injection and always use sunscreen. Many patients will have improvements right after their injections with complete results developing after 3 – 5 months, when the increased collagen production improves the health of the complexion. If Sculptra is performed in a series over 3 – 4 months, your results may be visible for as long as two years.
Sculptra Ideal Candidates
How much does Sculptra cost?
Sculptra injections can range in price depending on how many units are needed to achieve your wanted results. Some patients may also need a series of treatment for the optimal outcome. During your consultation, we will discuss your treatment goals and tailor a treatment plan for your specific budget.
How does Sculptra work?
Sculptra is a poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) collagen stimulator that works within the dermis of the skin to help stimulate the production of collagen. It can help to restore the skin’s inner structure and volume over time as more collagen is formed. The rebuilt strands of collagen create the appearance of fullness to facial folds and wrinkles.
Are Sculptra injections safe?
Approved by the FDA, Sculptra has a long history of safety worldwide since 1999. Though side effects are rare, they can include slight pain, bruising, swelling, and/or redness. In some cases, bumps may become noticeable when pressure is applied to the injected area. Contact our office if you experience any abnormal or lasting side effects.
What is the best age to receive Sculptra?
Sculptra is beneficial for individuals who are wanting to soften and reduce the appearance of facial lines and wrinkles. It can specifically be used to restore chin wrinkles, lines surrounding the mouth, and deep lines between the nose and mouth. The most common age to receive Sculptra injections is between ages 30 – 55; however, it is also common for patients who are younger and older than this range to receive injections.
How long do results last?
For longer-lasting results, some patients may need to receive several Sculptra treatments. Sculptra is different from other fillers because the results usually last up to two years. Since the production of collagen continues to develop over time, results may appear more gradually.
