" A lot of people really like Sculptra because it is the filler to use if you don't want anyone to know you're undergoing cosmetic treatment, because the improvement is very gradual. "
- Dr. Lupo
If I only knew I would look this great, I would have done this years ago. I loved the gradual improvement. Dr. Lupo had a very soft touch and I had minimal discomfort. ~ Lisa M.
This is the first product that addressed the need for large volume correction. Not a true filler, more of a firming and lifting device. It is injected over the entire face, except for lip enhancement and forehead lines. First FDA approved for lipoatrophy, it is now used widely for cosmetic improvement. It is perhaps the longest lasting non-permanent filler.
Dr. Lupo was on the original advisory board for this product prior to approval by the FDA and learned the technique in Geneva so she could teach US doctors the proper technique. She continues to be a trainer for this product.
