Injectable dermal fillers may be an option for patients looking to restore a youthful look to their face without undergoing surgery. These products have been referred to within the skin care industry as “liquid facelifts” because they offer many of the benefits of a surgical facial procedure without the downtime. These soft tissue fillers can add more volume; make the lips appear fuller; enhance shallow contours; or soften facial creases and wrinkles.
As we lose volume, the boney structures of our face become more prominent. This process makes our facial features become hardened as we lose the softness of youthful volume. As facial volume loss progresses throughout the decades, we begin to see hollowing in the temples and the area in front of our ears below our cheekbones. This can be improved with the use of Sculptra.
Sculptra is a suspension of Poly-L Lactic Acid in sterile water. It promotes the production of collagen and will softly add volume surrounding those boney prominences. The injections of Sculptra are often repeated at two weeks and the results will improve over the course of 6-8 weeks. Sculptra studies show results lasting up to two years. Dermal fillers can also be a more immediate and cost-effective solution than surgery. Some fillers are used in conjunction with other rejuvenation procedures such as injections of botulinum toxin.
