At our Richmond, Virginia, practice, we offer Sculptra Aesthetic to help you restore the youthful shape and contours of your face. The loss of facial volume, which can create a flattened, sagging, or sunken look in areas such as the cheeks and at the temples, is one of main contributors to an aged appearance.

Your Sculptra Treatment
Sculptra is a unique, longer lasting filler made from poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA). It works gradually and produces results that outlast most hyaluronic acid fillers, which is why it’s preferred by many of our patients.
Sculptra Aesthetic injections target deeper areas than most other filler treatments. After injection, the PLLA microparticles begin breaking down, stimulating the body to begin the process of producing new collagen – a key component of firm, youthful-looking skin.
The gradual production of new collagen continues, creating results that last longer than other fillers. The number of treatments needed to produce the desired results vary from patient to patient, but most patients schedule 3 treatments over the period of a few months.
Where Can Sculptra be Injected?
Sculptra adds lasting volume and improves the appearance of many signs of facial aging:
- Drooping cheeks and sunken temples
- Deep folds between the nose and the mouth, called nasolabial folds or smile lines
- The lines that run from the corners of the mouth down the chin, called marionette lines
- Chin wrinkles
Good Candidates for Sculptra Aesthetic
Men and women who can benefit from Sculptra injections typically have good skin elasticity and facial muscle tone, but want added volume in specific areas. Fillers such as Sculptra won’t match the results of a facelift, but can produce impressive, long-lasting results. Dr. Lewis discusses your options, including other fillers such as JUVÉDERM VOLUMA®, during your consultation.
Sculptra and other nonsurgical treatments are popular cosmetic options for women and men who aren’t ready for plastic surgery, or who want to prolong or enhance the results of a facial procedure.
