TEMPLE REJUVENATION TREATMENT BY DR. ZUCKERMAN IN NEW YORK CITY


Dr. Zuckerman offers a few different options for sunken or hollowed out forehead temples due to aging. He can inject either a Hyaluronic Acid filler like Voluma® or a different type of dermal filler called Radiesse® to restore lost volume. A third option is to inject Sculptra® Aesthetic, an injectable form of poly-L-lactic acid that stimulates the body’s own mechanism to produce collagen. The rest of this page focuses on this treatment using Sculptra® as it gives the longest lasting results lasting up to three years, and this injectable has high rates of patient satisfaction among Dr. Zuckerman’s patients. In a study by the manufacturer, over 80% of patients rated a Sculptra treatment highly twenty-five months afterward. Sculptra® also acts subtlely and gradually, which allows you to avoid appearing dramatically different one day to the next.

Temple Rejuvenation In Detail

Below Dr. Zuckerman outlines several key aspects of Temple Rejuvenation including procedure time, preparation, cost, and more.

Recommended Treatment Regimen

Dr. Zuckerman recommends an initial set of three treatments each spaced four to six weeks apart. Afterward, patients may be able to undergo a follow-up set of three treatments once every two to three years, but results do vary.

Longevity

Treatment is somewhat visible immediately but takes four to six weeks to fully set in. After the initial three treatments, results last up to three years.

Treatment Time

10 – 20 minutes per treatment

Pretreatment Guidelines

Dr. Zuckerman recommends patients take the following precautions before undergoing temple rejuvenation treatment to minimize bruising: no NSAIDs such aspirin or ibuprofen within a couple days before a day after, don’t drink alcohol to excess a day before and a day before, refraining from lying flat or working out within 2 hours after injection.

Approximate Cost

$1,000 – $1,200 per treatment





Temple Rejuvenation Recovery, Difficulty, & Risks

See below for an estimate of how long your treatment result may last, recovery time if any, cost range, and more.

Downtime / Recovery

This treatment involves little to no downtime, and patients often return to work immediately after treatment. There may be slight bleeding or redness at the injection sites on the temples, but these will resolve within a few hours.

Required Level of Skill

Low to medium: the key to this treatment is that the injector not overinject the product, because this could lead to a lumpy or outward bulging temple area. Visit Dr. Zuckerman, a board-certified plastic surgeon, to avoid any issues.

Level of Discomfort

None to low: this treatment is performed with an extremely thin gauge needle. Dr. Zuckerman offers a topical anesthetic (numbing cream) as well before treatment if you would like and an ice pack afterwards.

Associated Risks

Sculptra® injections are overwhelmingly safe, especially when performed by a board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Zuckerman. Minor, and rare, risks include:
• Swelling
• Tenderness and pain in the targeted area
