Sculptra® is used to address volume loss that is associated with aging. After the age of 30, people tend to experience a gradual loss of volume in the face due to the reduction of natural collagen. When patients visit a cosmetic dermatologist for Sculptra® injections, they will be able to rejuvenate their appearance with the stimulation of collagen production. The face will begin to look more youthful as the lost volume is restored.
Sculptra® can be combined with other injectables such as neuromodulators (Botox® and Dysport®) and hyaluronic acid fillers. They can work together for an effective, long-lasting treatment for skin laxity, wrinkles, fine lines, and folds that contribute to an aged appearance. Dr.Menkes and his team can help determine which injectables are appropriate for the specific needs of each individual patient and work with them to reduce the signs of aging.
Sculptra® is formulated from poly-L-lactic acid, and, depending upon the patient, can last up to 2 years with just a few treatments. Although patients may benefit from just one injection, the best results are achieved when several treatments are scheduled to provide optimum results. The results may last even longer when Sculptra® is combined with dermal fillers and neuromodulators.
Sculptra® is just one of many injectables available through The Menkes Clinic & Surgery Center.
