How Sculptra® can add volume in the face right where it is needed without plastic surgery
- Posted on: Sep 15 2022
Many patients visit their local plastic surgeon to determine what can be done about imperfections of the face. However, they may incorrectly believe elective surgeries are the only way to improve their appearance. Fortunately, a wide range of cosmetic injectables have been on the market for many years and provide men and women with a non-surgical solution to many typical facial contours and skin concerns. This includes Sculptra® injections. Dr. Wayne P. Foster of Foster MD is one of the top plastic surgeons in Monmouth and Ocean counties and can assist patients in restoring lost facial volume with Sculptra®.
What is Sculptra®?
Sculptra® is an injectable filler which helps to restore lost facial volume and provide a more youthful appearance. Unlike other fillers, Sculptra® works gradually over time to stimulate your natural collagen production.
Our bodies naturally produce less collagen as we age, resulting in facial wrinkles and sagging skin. By injecting Sculptra® into areas of the face that have lost volume, we can help replenish your collagen stores and give you a more youthful look.
Sculptra® is made of poly-L-lactic acid, or PLLA, a biocompatible synthetic material that has been used safely in medical devices for decades. Once injected, it works within the deep dermis to stimulate your body’s own collagen production.
How many injections do I need to achieve results?
Over the next few months, Sculptra® helps to gradually and naturally restore lost facial volume. Most patients need 3-4 injections over a few months to achieve optimal results.
How long will the results last?
The results from Sculptra® can last up to two years or longer. And because Sculptra® helps your body produce its own collagen, the results are often more subtle and natural-looking than other fillers.
