Dermal fillers offer a wonderful alternative to surgery for fighting the signs of aging. One of the longer lasting fillers available is Sculptra. It is beneficial for adding volume under the skin to smooth lines and plump the face. Dr. Kami Parsa is an experienced facial plastic surgeon. He can expertly use Sculptra injections to give your face a more youthful appearance with a non-invasive treatment in our office in Beverly Hills.
Sculptra injections are different than many other dermal fillers that use hyaluronic acid or other substances for adding volume to the skin. While these other fillers have their benefits, Sculptra injections can last as long as two years and are better for more pronounced volume. Sculptra is made from poly-l-lactic-acid, which can replace lost collagen in the skin. It adds volume at a deeper level under the skin, versus other dermal fillers that are more topical. This creates the “sculpting” effect that gave this injectable dermal filler its name.
Smooth Deep Lines and Add Facial Volume
Sculptra is FDA-approved to treat deep lines, and it is especially renowned for smoothing the nasolabial or smile lines around the nose and mouth. It can also be used to add volume to the cheek or chin areas, creating a softer, more youthful appearance to the face. The procedure is quick and requires no downtime, but more than one treatment may be needed for the best results. Sculptra results are not immediate. The collagen-building aspect of the treatment works over a few months, helping the skin regain its youthful volume and elasticity. However, this gradual improvement is long-lasting and enhances the skin, instead of just plumping it for a short time.
If you are looking for options to combat the loss of collagen in your skin, smoothing lines and improving volume, Sculptra injections may be right for you. Dr. Kami Parsa offers Sculptra treatments and many other options to help fight the signs of aging. Contact our office today to schedule your consultation.
