Patients in the New York, NY area who are struggling with aging skin may be interested in learning about plastic surgery. However, plastic surgery isn’t for everyone, and many concerns can be addressed with less invasive treatments. Dr. Thomas Romo III of Romo Plastic Surgery is a professional doctor who can address a variety of aesthetic conditions with plastic surgery but also cosmetic injectables. When volume loss in the cheeks is a concern, a cosmetic injectable known as Sculptra might be the best solution!
What Is Sculptra?
Sculptra is one of many cosmetic injectables available at the office of Dr. Thomas Romo III for treating aging skin. After the age of 30, many patients will be faced with volume loss in the facial area. This can make the cheeks seem gaunt and deflated over time. With injectables such as Sculptra, patients can stimulate the body’s natural process of developing collagen and elastin which can fill these areas and provide a fullness often associated with youthfulness. Sculptra is formulated with poly-L-lactic acid which is a naturally occurring substance in the body and can stimulate volume production in the facial area.
What to Expect After Sculptra Treatment
Sculptra injections are done within just a few minutes right in our office and is administered by Dr. Thomas Romo III to ensure safety and effectiveness. Sculptra does not provide immediate results in the same way other cosmetic injectables do, but it starts the process of collagen and elastin production in the body that can take form over the course of several weeks and months. Once collagen and elastin have provided volume in the cheek area, the results will last for a few years. Patients may want to have continual Sculptra injections performed for more long-lasting improvements and to combat the slow process of aging.
