New Orleans patients can enjoy facial rejuvenation with SculptraBy Dr. Mary Lupo
Sculptra is an injectable treatment used by dermatologists to add volume to cheeks and even directly into fine lines and wrinkles of the face. It is commonly used on areas such as the temples and cheeks to provide facial contouring.
Sculptra is made of Poly-L-Lactic Acid, which has been used for many years in dissolvable stitches. Now it can be injected into the skin to stimulate new collagen growth, restore the youthful appearance of the skin, and provide patients with an affordable solution to their aging concerns.
The procedure provides facial rejuvenation in a manner similar to other injectables available through the Lupo Center for Aesthetic and General Dermatology. Sculptra is injected directly into the areas of concern in just a few minutes. Dr. Mary Lupo marks the areas of correction, uses a steady hand to administer the treatment, and sends patients on their way. Dr. Lupo has the most experience in Louisiana with this aesthetic treatment since she was trained in Geneva, Switzerland, prior to its release in the United States. She has trained several hundred physicians on best practices with this and other fillers.
Unlike traditional dermal fillers, the results of Sculptra are not seen immediately. Instead, the reduction of fine lines and wrinkles is noticed over time as collagen stimulation provides volume to the face and gives patients an overall youthful look. While it does not show immediate results, it does provide long-term results. Patients can also have reinjections done to stimulate the production of collagen over the years, ultimately slowing the signs of aging.
