Volume loss occurs naturally during the aging process, particularly in the mid-face as the cheeks become flat and hollow. Advanced Dermatology offers Sculptra Aesthetic, a poly-L-lactic acid-based dermal filler that allows for deeper and longer-lasting volume replacement in the cheeks. In addition to improving the contour of the cheeks, Sculptra can decrease the appearance of shallow to deep lines and wrinkles, including the nasolabial folds (also known as smile or laugh lines) that run from the sides of the nose to the corners of the mouth. With its unique formula approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Sculptra increases the natural production of collagen in your body so even if you stop treatments, your skin will still be healthier compared to before Sculptra injections. Schedule a consultation at Advanced Dermatology in Katy, League City, Pearland, or Sugar Land, TX to learn more about the benefits of this dermal filler.

candidates for Sculptra
Sculptra is best for patients who want to add volume in their cheeks without surgery. Some candidates may have naturally flat cheeks while others experience age-related volume loss. Sculptra can also be used to fill shallow-to-deep facial lines and wrinkles, like the nasolabial folds, chin wrinkles, and marionette lines. Since Sculptra helps to increase the body's natural production of collagen, many patients will have visible improvement in the overall health and appearance of their skin.
Sculptra Treatment Technique
After your consultation to create your personal treatment plan, you will receive your Sculptra injections in one of our private treatment rooms. Your injector may apply a topical to numb the area, clean it, and mark the injection sites. Once you are ready, the filler will be injected into the deeper layers of the skin at the selected areas. For best results, we recommend a series of Sculptra injections each scheduled at Advanced Dermatology about three weeks apart.
What to Expect from Sculptra treatments
After your Sculptra treatment, you may have mild to moderate redness, swelling, tenderness, or bruising at the injection site that should subside naturally in a few days. For faster healing, you can apply cold packs to the injection sites. You should avoid UV exposure as much as possible after your treatment and use sun protection. Most patients will see visible improvements immediately after their Sculptra treatment with full results appearing after several months as the natural production of collagen strengthens the skin. When performed as a series of injections over the course of 3 – 4 months, results can last up to two years.
Is Sculptra safe?
Yes, Sculptra is considered a safe and effective solution for facial volume loss. The most common side effects are mild and temporary injection-related reactions, such as swelling, bruising, redness, pain, and itching at the injection site. Serious side effects are rare. Advanced Dermatology can review the potential risks and benefits of Sculptra so you can make an informed treatment decision.
How do you prepare for Sculptra?
There is no special preparation required before Sculptra injections. However, we may ask you to stop taking certain medications, such as blood thinners, to reduce the risk of bruising. Patients should also avoid sun exposure and tanning before treatment. UV rays make your skin more sensitive and may increase your risk of side effects.
