Restoring a more youthful look
Sculptra® is a popular option for restoring a more youthful look to the face using dermal fillers, and is a collagen regeneration product. It is an FDA approved soft tissue filler that stimulates your skin’s fibroblasts to produce new collagen, thereby reversing the loss of the skin’s fullness. It is used to fill and recontour areas where underlying supportive collagen and fat tissue have diminished with age or have been damaged by injury or disease. Sculptra® is most often used to cheek hollows, smile lines, and depressions around the eyes. It is also used to restore fullness to the hands for a natural, younger appearance.
Before & After
As we age, our body naturally creates less collagen, the skin component responsible for strength and elasticity. The decrease in collagen leads to the appearance of folds, wrinkles, and hollowness on our faces. To counter that, a customized cosmetic treatment plan can be developed for you, which might include BOTOX® or other longer lasting fillers and injectibles like Sculptra® or Radiesse®.
Dr. Andre Berger is an advanced injector trainer and has been called upon to teach other cosmetic surgeon the proper technique for administering long lasting fillers such as Sculptra®. Very few doctors have this specialized background and as a result, he is one of the few providers in the Beverly Hills area that are qualified to administer this long lasting treatment.
What to Expect With Sculptra Treatment
Sculptra® treatments consist of a simple series of injections into the deeper layers of skin. Each treatment takes only minutes to perform, and is usually done in a series of usually three sessions. Side effects include short term bruising, redness, soreness, and slight swelling. There is very little downtime.
