Sculptra Aesthetic is a type of facial injectable which helps replace lost collagen. Made from poly-L-lactic acid (a biocompatible, biodegradable synthetic material), it gradually and subtly restores the look of fullness to shallow to deep facial wrinkles and folds that have been depleted over time as we age. Sculptra is administered in a series of treatments over a period of a few months. As with any injectable, the number of injections per session and the total number of sessions varies from patient to patient. The result is a refined, more youthful-looking appearance that can last more than two years.
Sculptra is suitable for the following areas: 1) deep folds between the nose and mouth known as smile lines, 2) lines framing your mouth known as marionette lines, and 3) chin wrinkles. Results can be seen after the first session with maximum results after your determined number of sessions.

We are the first practice in Miami to have the Liposonix treatment which uses noninvasive, high-intensity focused ultrasound to permanently destroy targeted fat around your waistline (abdomen and love handles) without surgery, which may leave you with a slimmer, more contoured waistline.
The average waistline reduction after a single, 1-hour treatment is about 2.5 cm or one dress or pant size. Results are typically seen in 8 to 12 weeks (which is the time needed for the body to naturally remove the treated fat). Office visit time and individual results may vary.
The Liposonix treatment is not a replacement for a healthy lifestyle, or a way to lose weight but allows you to get rid of fat that will not go away no matter how many crunches you do.
During treatment, you may feel discomfort, pain, cold, prickling, tingling, or warmth. After treatment, you may experience minimal discomfort, bruising, redness, and swelling, which are generally described (or rated) as mild.
How is Liposonix Different?
The Liposonix treatment is unique because of its high-energy output and high frequency; creating a thermal effect that permanently destroys the targeted fat in the abdomen and love handles. Also it has the unique ability to focus its energy at specific depths in the fat without damaging surrounding tissue or non-targeted areas.
Compared to the Liposonix treatment, low-energy systems such as laser or radio-frequency are not able to reach the fat located deep below the outer layers of skin. This is because the energy these systems use is reflected and absorbed by the skin. The Liposonix system uses high-intensity focused ultrasound energy, which is not reflected and absorbed by the skin but penetrates through the skin layers and into the targeted fat without harming skin or surrounding tissues
Before / After Photos
The before and after photos are of patients who received a Liposonix treatment during clinical studies and depict a range of actual results 12 weeks after treatment. The average waistline reduction after a single treatment was about 2.5 cm, or one dress or pant size.

Clinical Research Trials
At Baumann Cosmetic & Research Institute, our goal is to promote treatments that have a scientific basis and work for our patients. To that end, we are a leader in the field of clinical research, evaluating the safety and efficacy of cosmetic dermatology products and procedures.
We've performed over 40 clinical trials in this area and currently have many other studies ongoing. We have a cosmetic patient roster of over 5,000 patientsand work in tandem with 15 dermatologists at the Baumann Cosmetic & Research Institute – who combine to see over 100,000 patients a year.
We are also frequently sought out to conduct clinical trials because of our attention to detail, our extensive experience and resources, and our ability to quickly publish study results.
Clinical trials and studies have recently been conducted on the following topics:
- Investigational treatment on mild to severe acne in adults ages 18 to 39
- Botulinum toxin for excess sweating of palms
- Botulinum toxin for crow's feet
- Safety and efficacy of a topical cream for photoaging
- Safety and efficacy of a topical cream for melasma
*Please note that all study participants must live within driving distance of Baumann Cosmetic & Research Institute. If you live in another state or country, please do not apply for one of our studies. However, we would be more than happy to welcome you as a patient at the Institute.
