As we age, our body begins to change. Especially the facial area. Patients in the New York, NY who are noticing these unwanted changes may feel self-conscious about their aging skin. In many cases, patients notice a loss of volume in their cheeks that can contribute to a more gaunt appearance. This is caused by the natural loss of collagen and elastin that occurs in our later years. However, thanks to continued advancements in dermatology and plastic surgery, patients no longer have to undergo a face lift or any other dramatic changes with surgical intervention. Now, patients can ask for a treatment called Sculptra.
What is Sculptra and how does it work?
Dr. Thomas Romo III is a plastic surgeon who is proud to offer non-invasive alternatives such as Sculptra. Sculptra is a poly-L lactic acid injectable that can be used directly where it is needed to stimulate the body’s natural production of collagen and elastin to add volume. This facial volume enhancer can provide improved results for several years with properly timed reinjections. Sculptra is best used on the facial area below the cheek bones to ensure a more youthful transformation.
Who is a candidate for Sculptra?
Sculptra is appropriate for any adult patient who needs to address volume loss in the facial area and wants a more youthful appearance without plastic surgery. Our professionals encourage patients to book a consultation visit with our team at Romo Plastic Surgery for an initial evaluation to determine candidacy.
Is Sculptra safe?
Cosmetic injectables such as Sculptra have been approved by the FDA for use in enhancing the appearance of the skin by increasing volume in a more natural manner. Patients can speak with our professionals about any side effects that may occur.
