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. Schedule an appointment for a consultation at Schoemann Plastic Surgery in Encinitas, CA to learn more about the benefits of this treatment.
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.
