Restoring Lost Volume with Sculptra Facial Injections in Dallas
If you're looking for injectable fillers for your face, it's important that you find a professional who uses FDA-approved products and is well-versed in the latest cosmetic procedures and techniques. Dr. Randy Sanovich and the staff at Dallas Surgical Arts have years of experience helping patients look their best with cosmetic injectables. Our team understands how to use facial fillers like Sculptra Aesthetic to achieve natural-looking results.
What is Sculptra Aesthetic?
Sculptra Aesthetic is a product that is used to improve the appearance of or correct facial wrinkles, folds, or contour deficiencies. Sculptra is made from poly-L-lactic acid (or PLLA), which is a synthetic version of lactic acid injected directly into the desired area to restore volume and accelerate collagen production.
What is Poly-L-Lactic Acid?
Poly-L-lactic acid, or PLLA, is an FDA - approved, bioabsorbable, temporary injectable product. It causes neocollagenesis in the dermal layers, or the stimulation of fibroblasts and collagen deposits that give structure to the skin. Once your body has metabolized the PLLA, it will safely convert the properties into water and carbon dioxide.
Lactic acid has been used as an ingredient in skincare products for years because it has properties that help reduce fine lines and other signs of aging on the face. As anti-aging treatments are in demand, researchers began looking for ways to create an effective, injectable form of lactic acid to deliver higher concentrations of this ingredient into deeper layers of skin. These treatments have been used for decades on patients with HIV that exhibit facial lipoatrophy or patients with localized fat loss due to genetics or other variables.
What are the benefits of Sculptra Aesthetic treatment?
Patients at Dallas Surgical Arts love Sculptra injections as they are successful in plumping and filling wrinkles, restoring lost volume to the face, and overall facial rejuvenation.
Who is a good candidate for a cosmetic face injection?
If you are looking to restore lost volume to the face, then a cosmetic face injection like Sculptra is a great option. Sculptra works best on people who have lost volume due to aging or weight loss. It can also help bring back facial fullness after a trauma, such as an injury or surgery.
How is Sculptra injected?
Sculptra can be injected subcutaneously, into deeper dermal layers, or in the supraperiosteal plane. As a general guideline, patients should receive 1 vial of Sculptra for every decade of life they have lived. Typically, the first treatment will be a minimum of 2 vials for best results. It is recommended to inject the appropriate amount of Sculptra vials at least once per year and to wait 6 or more weeks between multiple sessions.
How long does Sculptra Aesthetic last?
Sculptra results last about two years with maintenance treatments, but it is important to note that because this product is a bio-stimulator, it is a gradual process and requires multiple treatments. A long-term benefit is that patients likely will not need as much hyaluronic acid dermal filler as their bodies will be producing more collagen over time.
