Lost facial volume can make you look years older than you feel, but Sculptra® offers a solution. Many Southlake, Texas residents rely on Haritha Mikkilineni (Dr. Mikki), MD, of Medrein Health & Aesthetics for this popular cosmetic injectable treatment. Booking a visit takes just moments online or by phone, so don’t delay.
Sculptra is an injectable treatment that helps replace lost facial volume. As the years pass, you lose a significant volume of collagen, the cells that plump and smooth your skin. Without the same level of support, your skin begins to sag and pool into lines, wrinkles, and folds.
This is what creates the hollowed-out appearance so common among older people. Bags beneath the eyes are also partially due to lost facial volume. It’s a great option for smoothing deep
This injectable is created from poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), a synthetic substance that is biocompatible with your body’s natural tissues. When injected into targeted tissues, Sculptra works by “filling out” areas where volume loss creates visible signs of aging.
Sculptra is FDA-approved for treating deep wrinkles, creases, and folds. This dermal filler can also add volume in certain areas of the body. Even better, these injections prompt new collagen production, extending your results.
Having Sculptra injections requires no advance preparation. Dr. Mikki places the injections in just a few moments, and your entire visit takes less than an hour.
A degree of swelling is normal in the hours after your visit, but there is no need to limit your daily activities. Periodic cold packs can reduce swelling and ease any discomfort. Gentle massage can also help your body adjust to the treatment.
Sculptra is often used to create bulk in various parts of the body, including the buttocks. If age, pregnancy, or weight loss changes the shape and firmness of your buttocks, Sculptra can help.
Injecting poly-L-lactic acid into your tissues prompts your body to build new collagen, which reshapes your buttocks to create a rounder, fuller profile. During your consultation, you have an opportunity to share your treatment goals with Dr. Mikki and learn how Sculptra injections can help.
It takes time for your body to create new tissue. While you may notice some changes immediately after your injections, it takes several months to see the full effects. Most people benefit from a series of treatments to achieve the best possible results.
