SCULPTRA

Hyaluronic acid based fillers (Restylane and Juvederm products) and calcium hydroxyapatite (Radiesse) have their places as the “workhorses” of dermal fillers, but they also have their limitations. The major limitation of dermal fillers is that they add volume without adding support, so they can “weigh down” a face that has more volume than it can support.  This is where Sculptra shines.

Sculptra (polly-L-lactic acid) is an established product that primarily induces collagen production.  It is unique in its ability to provide augmentation and support to areas difficult to treat otherwise, while also improving skin quality. Treatments are typically done over three sessions, and with lasting results that patients are happy with for 2 years or longer.

In our practice, Sculptra is used to treat the “thin” or “sunken” face. This can be a result of the aging process or physical fitness, as the “runner’s face” can be treated at a younger age to restore it to a more pleasing contour. Sculptra treatments involve augmenting with more volume than most dermal fillers and can be used to address difficult to treat areas of the face, such as the lower cheek and temples.

Though Sculptra can yield great results on its own, it does especially well as an adjunt to other facial rejuvenation procedures.  Sculptra gives the face a “foundation” on which to inject dermal fillers so that they hare more support..  Sculptra treatments are also easily be combined with facelift surgery, or with laser skin resurfacing for a non-surgical facial rejuvenation.
