Newport Beach Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Sean Kelishadi, offers Sculptra injections to restore volume and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Sculptra is a poly-L-lactic acid dermal filler, which is a synthetic but biodegradable substance that is naturally absorbed by the body. Poly-L-lactic acid has been used for many years and is the main substance that makes up dissolvable stitches. As an FDA-approved dermal filler, Sculptra not only restores volume loss but also helps to stimulate the body's natural production of collagen. The body relies on collagen to provide structure, strength, and elasticity to our skin and other tissues in our bodies. SSK Plastic Surgery in Newport Beach, CA offers a variety of dermal fillers to suit your aesthetic needs and we are happy to discuss if Sculptra is ideal for you.
"Dr. Kelishadi is amazing!!! He made me feel so comfortable! I had Breast Augmentation May 26th. I'm three months out and loving my results! I was very self conscious about my chest. My breasts shrunk due to breast feeding. I didn't even want to change in front of my husband. (he loved them no matter what lol) and now I am feeling so great about it! He said he's even noticed a boost in my confidence level. I love it! i feel good..i feel sexy. I never thought I would actually go through with getting this done, but Dr. Kelishadi and his staff helped me with every step of the way. He was very caring and checked up on me after surgery. His staff was very nice as well. All so helpful! I highly recommend him!"- J.V. / Yelp / Jul 27, 2017
"Dr. Kelishadi is amazing! I love how attentive he is and gives you great advice on what you should get done or shouldn't. I've been to different surgeon offices and I always find myself booking another appointment with his office instead. The ladies at his office are another reason why I keep coming as well, such sweet and friendly ladies. I love how Every time I come they are super welcoming and I don't feel like I'm being judged! I've been to Offices before where I feel like I'm bugging the staff or when I'm asking questions they answer very annoyed. Here! They answer all your questions with concern and very kindly. Thank you Shae & Alex for being great customer service representatives & following up on my appointment reminders! I've had a hydra facial + Vivace done at his office. Which I definitely recommend, I should probably book another hydra-facial while I'm writing this review. Also, I've had my breast done elsewhere but will be contacting Dr. K once I'm ready for new boobies. I'll be referring all my clients, friends, staff, and family to Dr. Kelishadi FIVE STARS FROM ISABELLA"- I.C. / Yelp / Jun 21, 2019

"I initially was drawn to SSK because of a promotion for their hydra facial. I met Shay and Alejandra who helped me understand the benefits of hydra facials. My complimentary hydra facial at their open house promotion was awesome!! I joined the SSK Club and now treat myself to monthly hydra facials at a reduced rate. My skin is glowing! I feel taken care of at SSK, and Shay and Alejandra make sure I feel this way. I've even tried the micro needling technique offered by Dr. Kellishadi which has taken my glow to a new level. Dr. Kellishadi obviously truly cares about his patients because he's interested in what's best for ME and not just what will make his cash flow grow. He said I don't need surgery to look great at my age. I'm 55. Most plastic surgeons would jump on the opportunity to talk a 55-year-old woman into chasing a youthful look through a face lift or some other expensive surgery. He spent the time to talk with me about my life goals and what makes me feel happy and alive, and we BOTH decided that going under the knife isn't what is best for me. I choose to maintain my best look by non-invasive procedures such as hydra facials and micro needling. Dr. Kellishadi cares about my satisfaction and happiness with SSK services despite the fact that I'm the opposite of a "high ticket" client. Because of this, I'm now a loyal customer."- C.S. / Yelp / Apr 19, 2019
Sculptra is an ideal treatment for you if you have moderate to severe smile lines, marionette lines, chin wrinkles, or volume loss. It is also a great treatment for those who simply desire younger looking skin. Ideal candidates should be in overall good health, have a strong immune system, and not have any skin infections. If you are currently on any prescription drugs or taking anti-inflammatory medication, consult with your doctor prior to receiving Sculptra treatments.
Since Sculptra is a minimally invasive procedure, patients will be able to undergo treatment and return home all in the same day. During the procedure, the target area will be cleansed and injection sites will be carefully marked. Sculptra will then be injected in the desired location and massaged for even distribution. A topical anesthetic can be applied to ease your discomfort, but typically there is minimal pain. However, some patients may require several treatments to obtain the results they desire. Treatments are usually spaced 2 weeks apart.
What To Expect
Redness, swelling, tenderness, and minor bruising may occur near or around the injection site. This is very common but should subside within 5 – 7 days. If the symptoms persist, consult with your doctor. Patients may also use a cold compress to ease discomfort. Optimal results will be visible with 4 – 6 weeks and are known to last up to 2 years. Long-lasting results is one of the biggest advantaged Sculptra over other dermal fillers.
Plan Your Procedure
Sculptra doesn't just correct volume loss, but increases the overall health of the skin by stimulating the body's natural collagen production. This improves the thickness of the skin and structure, which leads to a younger appearance. Because of its long-lasting results, Sculptra has earned the nickname "liquid facelift." If you want to improve the look of your skin but aren't ready for a surgical facelift, Sculptra can be a great option for you.
