Sculptra Up to two years of supple skin in Short Hills, NJ

Longevity, versatility, rejuvenation.

Welcome to Sculptra

Sagging skin and muscles are commonly associated with an aging face or other parts of the body, but fat loss is also to blame. Youthful and vibrant skin is often dependent on the production of collagen, which diminishes with age. Sculptra can help correct these signs of aging by awakening collagen production to address wrinkles, hollow areas, or sagging skin. The results can last an impressive two years or more.

Sculptra at True Beauty Med Spa

At True Beauty Med Spa, we offer the highest-quality patient care and the most natural-looking aesthetic results in the Short Hills, NJ, area. Dr. Beverly Friedlander and the injectable team are skilled, trained, and knowledgeable in ideal Sculptra techniques and methods and would be excited to give you a stunning outcome.

What is Sculptra?

Sculptra is an injectable filler made with poly-L-lactic (PLLA) acid. Instead of “filling” the treatment area with the formula, Sculptra® Aesthetic (commonly referred to as Sculptra) is a biostimulator that works by stimulating collagen production under the skin for a gradual and, thus, long-lasting result.

This synthetic PLLA is extremely safe and biocompatible. It provides powerful wrinkle-reduction to restore youthfulness, vitality, and strength to your skin. It can also add shapeliness and volume where desired on the face, neck, or body, including the buttocks. As Sculptra stimulates collagen production over time, collagen loss is restored for a smooth, refined, natural-looking appearance.

What can Sculptra do?

Sculptra can address concerns in multiple areas by reducing wrinkles, filling in hollow areas, and even smoothing crepey skin. Whether you want to reverse the signs of aging or sculpt and enhance certain areas, this treatment could be the answer. Sculptra can improve multiple areas:


  • Decrease fine lines and wrinkles including smile lines and chin wrinkles
  • Plump hollow cheeks and soften high cheekbones
  • Fill hollow temples
  • Soften deep lines forming on the face - nasolabial folds, marionette lines, laugh lines, smile lines
  • Lift the midface


  • Smooth jowls at the jawline
  • Reduce neck lines and cleavage creases
  • Address crepey skin of the décolletage


  • Body contouring
  • Non-surgical butt augmentation (non-surgical Brazilian Butt Lift) to lift, plump, and smooth the buttocks
  • Lift saggy underarm skin
  • Tighten wrinkly skin above the knee
  • Reduce the crepey appearance of the upper arm and inner thigh

Am I a candidate for Sculptra?

This injectable is a great option for both men and women of all skin types who are seeking a way to reduce the signs of aging due to collagen loss. In general, our Short Hills, NJ Sculptra patients are in good health and have realistic expectations regarding the outcome of the procedure. If you are looking to address any of the concerns below, you are likely a great candidate:

  • Lift lines and wrinkles in the face
  • Fill out hollow areas such as cheeks, temples, and chin
  • Soften blunt or protruding cheekbones
  • Enhance the buttocks for a lifted, rounded appearance
  • Smooth the skin of the neck, arms, or thighs

Sculptra has benefits for many patients:

  • Gradual results; no stark change others may notice as getting “work done”
  • Low risk for allergy because of biocompatibility
  • Little to no downtime

Consultation and Preparation

Experience the difference of a plastic surgery professional who cares about making a genuine difference in the lives of her patients.

At a consultation with Dr. Beverly Friedlander, you can expect an in-depth conversation about your aesthetic concerns and goals and a detailed plan on how those goals can be achieved at True Beauty MedSpa with Sculptra. You will also receive detailed information on how to prepare for your Sculptra appointment, including the need to avoid taking aspirin, NSAIDs, and any other blood-thinning medications, as these can increase possible bruising and other side effects.


Sculptra injections are generally quick and are performed in our well-appointed and safe facility. First, the treatment area will be cleansed. You may receive a topical numbing agent if needed, but the Sculptra solution is also mixed with lidocaine for comfort. Then, the injections will be skillfully administered by Dr. Friedlander for optimal results. The total appointment time is usually about 30 to 45 minutes.

Results, Recovery, and Aftercare

Immediately after the procedure, you may feel slight tenderness at the injection sites, but you are free to resume all regular activities. We usually recommended a series of two to three treatments given around four to six weeks apart. We find that the subsequent treatments heighten the quality and longevity of the initial results.
