As we age, there is a decrease in both fat volume and collagen content in the face and skin, contributing to and flat or sometime hollowed apperance to areas of the face such as the cheeks and temples. With Sculptra we are able to achieve a natural looking more youthful appearance by replacing some of that lost volume.
Sculptra is intended to help correct deep dynamic folds as well as volumize hollowed areas under the cheek bones, temples and forhead. It is injected deeply and works by adding collagen to these areas. The Sculptra is broken down by your body and replaced by your own naturally occurring collagen. Sculptra is not intended for or designed to be used in fine lines or moderate wrinkles.
After treatment, you will instantly notice that your face and skin has more volume. Many patients, particularly fit very slim patients, can use Sculptra multiple times over a two year period with very nice lasting results.
When administered by a Sculptra Aesthetic trained and Double Board Certified Facial Plastic Surgeon such as Dr. Chase Lay in San Jose, excellent results can be achieved. To schedule an appointment, please contact Dr. Lay’s office at (408) 358-3888 or request a consultation online.
