Sculptra® at the Long Beach-area's Patient Preferred Dermatology recontours regions where volume has been reduced due to weight loss or normal aging. Made from poly-L-lactic acid, the injectable corrects signs of facial volume (fat) loss. Most injectables only fill in wrinkles, lines, and folds. This one works differently. It restores fullness to the face by stimulating collagen production and progressively replacing lost fat, thus giving you back what you have lost over time.
This injectable is FDA approved and can last two years or longer. It is important to see an experienced physician for treatments. Most patients will require two to four treatments, spaced four to six weeks apart, to achieve optimal results.
Sculptra® is often used to provide the structural foundation for a "liquid facelift"—that is, a non-surgical facelift. This injectable can be combined with other facial aesthetic fillers, to give you an elegant, youthful appearance.
Dr. Mark Maida at Patient Preferred Dermatology has been named as the designated choice for Sculptra® Aesthetic in your community.
