Approved by the FDA in 2004, Sculptra is often used to treat lipoatrophy, also known as loss of facial volume. Sculptra helps to replace lost collagen in the face and is a long-lasting non-surgical treatment, allowing patients to maintain their youthful appearance for up to two years.
Unlike other dermal fillers, which hide wrinkles by filling the skin, Sculptra’s role is to stimulate your body’s own collagen. Sculptra itself doesn’t technically “fill”; rather, it is a bio-stimulator that triggers the collagen matrix that forms your volume. Marionette lines, nasolabial folds, and volume loss in the temples, mid-face, cheeks, sub-cheeks can all be treated with Sculptra. In addition, it’s a very natural treatment because it uses the body’s own foundation to build up volume.
Scuptra can also be used in the buttocks. Call our office for details.
