Injectable dermal fillers are popular with both men and women to help add volume, soften wrinkles and add a lift to our facial tissues without the need for surgery. Dermal fillers use active ingredients that are naturally found in the body such as hyaluronic acid and calcium hydroxyapatite to safely reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Our Selection of fillers include Restylane, Juvederm, Radiesse, RHA and Sculpra Aesthetic.
Results are visible immediately and can last for 12-24 months depending on the product used as well as the volume of that product.
Collagen is the main structural protein found in the skin that helps to keep the skin looking smooth and youthful. As we age, collagen production decreases, and facial fat declines, leading to wrinkles and folds.
Sculptra is a cosmetic injectable that:
Sculptra is made from poly-L-lactic acid, a biodegradable substance, which the body safely and naturally breaks down. Poly-L-lactic acid has been used for years in dissolvable stitches. Sculptra is injected into the deep dermis, where it strengthens the skin's foundation and provides a stronger structure for the body’s natural collagen to be produced. This process helps to restore lost volume. As Sculptra stimulates collagen growth over time, folds and wrinkles will gradually soften, leaving your skin looking smooth, natural and youthful.
Sculptra is FDA-approved to help correct mild to broad facial wrinkles and folds, between the nasolabial folds, between the lips and jaw line, and wrinkles in the chin. Other uses include treatment for hollowed temples and facial contour deficiencies.

Sculptra works in the deep dermis to reinforce the structure of the skin and to help replace lost collagen. While other fillers typically show immediate results that last about 6-12 months, Sculptra stimulates collagen production and works gradually to correct wrinkles and folds. The results can last for up to two years.
