Volume loss happens during the natural aging process, particularly in the middle of the face as the cheeks tend to become flat and hollow. Plastic surgeon Dr. Mark Schoemann offers Sculptra Aesthetic, a poly-L-lactic acid injectable dermal filler that allows for deeper and longer-lasting volume in the cheeks. In addition to increasing the volume of the mid-face, Sculptra can decrease the look of fine to deep lines and wrinkles, like the nasolabial folds (also known as laugh or smile lines) that start at the sides of the nose down to the corners of the mouth. With a unique gel formula approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Sculptra helps to increase the natural collagen production in your body so even if you stop getting injections, your skin should still be healthier and stronger compared to before Sculptra injections.

"My Husband recently had a surf accident that broke his Jaw. Dr. Schoemann was our saving grace. He made him self available that night in the ER to meet with us and discuss the surgery. He was able to get surgery done the next day. He was available by phone to answer any questions prior to surgery. He did an amazing job on the surgery and gave us such piece of mind putting us at ease through out the whole process. Every follow up visit has been incredible with not only with amazing care but his office is so friendly and on-time. We never feel rushed we have time to think and ask questions. We feel so fortunate to have had him in our time of emergency. We wanted to let everyone how incredible he is with face and jaw repair."- P.S. / Yelp / Apr 25, 2018

"One year post op from breast augmentation and I could not be happier!!! Dr. Schoemann is one of the best and most caring plastic surgeons, so highly recommend him. Enjoyed his services so much that I have gone back to him twice now for botox and now that he has a UltraPulse CO2 Resurfacing Laser that is going to even further minimize fine lines, correct discoloration and clear up some acne scarring.

Sculptra Aesthetic is great for patients who want to improve fullness in their mid-face without undergoing surgery. Candidates may have been born with thin cheeks while other patients have age-related volume loss. Sculptra dermal filler can also help to improve fine to severe facial lines and wrinkles, such as chin wrinkles, marionette lines, and nasolabial folds. Since Sculptra helps to increase the natural production of collagen, many Sculptra patients will see a visible improvement in the appearance and health of their complexion.
Following your consult to create your unique treatment plan, you will receive your Sculptra injections in our procedure rooms. Your injector may use a numbing cream or local anesthetic before sterilizing and marking the injection sites. Once you are ready, the filler will be injected into the deeper skin layers at the chosen areas. For longer-lasting results, Dr. Mark Schoemann recommends a series of four treatments each performed at Schoemann Plastic Surgery around three weeks apart.
What to Expect
Following your treatment, you may experience mild or moderate swelling, redness, tenderness, or bruising at the sites of injections that should resolve on its own in several days. To speed healing, you can apply cold packs to the injected areas. You should avoid UV exposure as much as possible after your appointment and use sunscreen. Most patients will notice visible improvements immediately following their appointment with full results appearing after 3 – 5 months when the natural production of collagen improves the health of the complexion. If performed as a series of injections over the course of 3 – 4 months, your results may last up to two years.
