Cosmetic Dermatology Procedures - Sculptra
Collagen gradually disappears with age and can leave you with hollow cheeks, nasolabial folds, bony temples, an undefined jawline, and a hollow chin. As your skin droops and loses elasticity and structure, your face may become unrecognizable to you. Sculptra offers an alternative to a conventional facelift. Also called a liquid facelift, this option can gently restore lost volume with no human DNA or animal products. Dr. Ghasri in Tarzana can help you decide if this revolutionary new treatment is right for you.
Sculptra is a synthetic form of lactic acid, poly-L-lactic acid or PLLA, which has been used in Europe and Canada for years and is approved for cosmetic use throughout the US, including Tarzana. Your body makes lactic acid when you exercise, and is gradually eliminated by the body over time. Dr. Ghasri may perform up to four injection sessions over the course of several months.
As the PLLA becomes incorporated within the deep dermis, it stimulates and revitalizes your body’s own production of collagen. This restores your natural volume and the structure of your skin. Unlike a conventional facelift, a liquid facelift offers subtle, gradual results that can last two years or longer. You can enjoy renewed fullness and volume, as well as fewer folds and wrinkles. If you are in the Tarzana area and are suffering from decreased volume, hollow areas, and deep wrinkles in the facde, you might be a candidate for Sculptra.
A liquid facelift can be an excellent alternative to invasive surgical treatments, and can restore a plump, youthful look to your skin. Unlike other fillers, it can be used in larger areas of the face, and the results are incredibly long-lasting. It can be used in patients of all ethnicities and skin types, and address a wide range of complaints with a low risk of side effects. The best way to find out of Sculptra is right for you is by scheduling a consultation. We will examine your skin, learn more about your goals, and create a treatment plan to give you the look you desire.
