While fine lines and wrinkles are often of upmost concern in aging adult patients, many overlook other changes to the face that can impact their appearance. Volume loss naturally occurs after the age of thirty, as the skin slowly uses collagen and elastin stores that maintained their youthful look. As this occurs, the cheek area will become hollow and result in an older appearance for both men and women. Addressing this volume loss with cosmetic injectables such as Sculptra is a minimally invasive way of improving one’s appearance and helping them achieve a younger look for several months at a time.
What is Sculptra?
There are several different kinds of cosmetic injectables available in dermatology and plastic surgery offices today. Sculptra is a specialized formula that incorporates poly-L-lactic acid, or PLLA. Poly-L-lactic acid stimulates the skin’s natural production of collagen. This improves volume where injected, which in turn can reduce creases and folds around the nose and mouth. The overall improvement achieved with Sculptra can result in dramatic enhancement that can boost self-confidence and self-esteem.
Is Sculptra safe?
Sculptra is one of many cosmetic injectables that is approved by the FDA for the treatment of volume loss in the facial area. Sculptra is available with Dr. Thomas Romo III along with other injectables including neuromodulators and dermal fillers.
Am I a candidate for Sculptra?
Sculptra is best used for healthy adult patients experiencing the natural loss of volume in the facial area. This injectable can be used along with other injections in our practice to achieve a “liquid facelift.” This means that Botox Juvéderm, and Sculptra can all be used during a single appointment at Romo Plastic Surgery to make dramatic enhancements to one’s appearance. A consultation visit is the best way to determine candidacy for an individual.
