Patients who have skin laxity and the formation of wrinkles will often speak to a plastic surgeon about a facelift. However, many are excited to learn that there are less invasive alternatives that can be used in achieving the desired results. While injectables are commonly used in situations where patients have fine lines and wrinkles, there are other injectables that work at replacing extensive volume loss in the face, specifically in the areas around the cheeks. Sculptra is a cosmetic injectable available with Dr. Jeffrey J. Roth in Las Vegas, NV and continues to be a popular option for both men and women.
How does Sculptra work?
Sculptra is an injectable formulated with an ingredient called poly-L lactic acid. This ingredient, when injected into the facial areas, helps in stimulating the body’s production of natural collagen. Collagen is what gives the skin a youthful appearance, and this element is lost naturally as we age. By stimulating collagen production, it can help in volume correction right where it’s needed the most!
What can I expect from Sculptra injections?
Sculptra does require some time to work as the process is not immediate. However, the results are much longer-lasting than those found with other injectables such as dermal fillers or neurotoxins. We welcome patients to ask our team of professionals about the results they can expect to have a better understanding as to what can be achieved with Sculptra.
What about plastic surgery?
There are cases where the severity of skin laxity can only be addressed with surgical interventions, especially if there is a considerable amount of excess skin that needs to be removed. However, many of our patients who are showing the earlier stages of aging may benefit greatly from this nonsurgical approach. We encourage patients to book a consultation and examination to find out if they are a candidate for Sculptra injections.
