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.

Welcome to the Nuance Facial Plastics Blog!

nuance facial plastics blog

Welcome!

The Nuance Facial Plastics Blog is here to give you the most honest, up to date information from us to you, in our “sponsored by nobody” style.  Our discussions will include topics that interest our readers, with a focus on facial plastic surgery.  We will use this space to answer frequently asked questions and also discuss current trends, new products, and emergent technologies.  Information is widely available on the internet, but good information that is not marketing material in disguise is hard to find, and often times constitutes a majority of what patients read as their “research”.  The Nuance Facial Plastics Blog differs, as we are an independent practice that has no exclusive deals with any vendors, companies, or other entities that would influence the quality and honesty of the information we provide you.

Our First Series

One of the most common discussions that we have with patients are about the differences between products that we offer, as there is some overlap.  The single most common question we get asked is, “what is the difference between Botox and Dysport?”.  Our first three-part series will explore the differences between the three neuromodulators currently available in the USA, Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin.  Several topics, such as differences in the strength, longevity, or “spread” between the products will be discussed.  Despite being broken into a three-part series, there is quite a lot of information, as the information from these posts are rooted in science, and the claims are supported by multiple articles published in high quality, peer-reviewed medical literature.
