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.

“I had erbium laser resurfacing done by Dr. Kundaria five days ago and I am amazed by how quickly I am healing. The whole experience has been amazing! Dr. Kundaria has an excellent bedside manner, extremely attentive to my questions and any concerns I might have. He even called several times after the procedure to check on me at home. I feel very confident in any procedure he performs on me and would recommend him to everyone!!!”
“I had such an amazing experience with Dr. Kundaria!! Him and his staff were so incredibly helpful and made me feel so comfortable from the minute I walked in. I told him what my area of concern was and we made a plan based on my condition and concerns with keeping in mind my price point. He really cares and wants the patient to walk out with the best result possible. I can’t wait to see my final result after my series of laser treatments.”
“A wonderful find. Dr. Kundaria has a top notch, professional approach. There is no pressure or excess. Cindy Roberts did my laser hair removal and she, along with Noelle, answered every question and set my mind at ease explaining everything in detail. The office is clean and simply yet professional and comforting. I highly recommend Nuance and their staff. I am actually looking forward to my next treatment and future procedures.”
“I went for a consultation with Dr. Kundaria. After some significant time, he recommended an upper blepharoplasty. I had my procedure done a few weeks ago, and I am so pleased with everything. I look and feel like a million bucks. He called me the night of my procedure. He checked up on me during the long weekend. I didn’t have any pain, and the results are phenomenal. I highly recommend him to anyone. He is just awesome.”
“I recently went to Nuance Facial Plastics where I met Dr Kundaria. I met with him one on one and he took the time with me to answer all my questions and concerns. My initial thought was for me to come back and get my treatments but he took me right away to start the process. Everything he told me that would happen, did. He is very knowledgeable with all the procedures and was very thorough during the procedure. I’m excited for my next visit and I will not go to anyone else. Best doctor I have ever interacted with.”
“I initially visited Dr. Kundaria for a consultation. Dr. Kundaria answered all my questions thoroughly and took the time to explain treatments and procedures. After a thoughtful recommendation, I decided on Dysport and a facial laser treatment that day (my first experience with both treatments). Very happy with the results! I will definitely be returning and highly recommended Nuance Facial Plastics!”
