Loss of volume happens during the natural aging process, especially in the middle of the face as the cheeks tend to become hollow and flat. Our providers can inject Sculptra Aesthetic, a poly-L-lactic acid injectable dermal filler that allows for longer-lasting and deeper volume in the apples of the cheeks. In addition to enhancing the fullness of the mid-face, Sculptra can reduce the look of fine-to-deep wrinkles and lines. It is known to work well with the nasolabial folds (sometimes called laugh or smile lines) that start at the outside of the nose down to the outer corners of the lips. With a unique gel formula approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Sculptra increases the natural collagen production in your skin, so even after you stop getting injections, your complexion should be stronger compared to before your Sculptra treatments. Schedule an appointment at SkinMD in Hurst and Weatherford, TX to hear about the advantages of this aesthetic treatment.

Sculptra Aesthetic is ideal for anyone who wants to boost fullness in their mid-face without surgical implants. Candidates may have been born with thin cheeks, whereas other patients have lost volume with age. Sculptra dermal filler may also help to treat fine-to-severe facial wrinkles and lines, such as the nasolabial folds, chin wrinkles, and marionette lines.

Following your consult to determine your custom plan for treatment, you can receive your injections in our minor procedure room. Your injector may use a local anesthetic or numbing cream after cleaning and marking the areas to be injected. As soon as you are prepared, Sculptra will then be injected into the deeper skin layers at the chosen sites. For longer-lasting results, our injectors usually suggest a series of four treatments that are done three weeks apart.
What to Expect
Following your treatment, you may experience mild-to-moderate swelling, redness, bruising, or tenderness at the sites of injections that should heal on its own in 3 – 5 days. To speed healing, you may apply a cold compress to the treated areas. You should limit UV exposure after your injection and always use sunscreen. Many patients will see improvements soon after their Sculptra treatment with full results developing after 3 – 5 months, when the increased collagen production fills it out and improves the health of the complexion. If Sculptra is performed in a series over 3 – 4 months, your results may be visible for as long as two years.
