Our Providence and East Greenwich, Rhode Island patients appreciate Sculptra because the results from these easy treatments are long lasting. Injected like other facial fillers, Sculptra works by stimulating collagen production.
Collagen and elastin decline as we age but Sculptra restores volume and fills out facial features, such as hollows under the eyes and sunken cheeks, quickly without surgery. Injectable fillers such as Sculptra can plump thin lips, soften facial wrinkles, enhance shallow contours of the cheeks and eyes, and correct drooping of the mouth corners and “marionette lines.”
Sculptra is made from a safe, synthetic injectable material known as “poly-L-lactic acid.” This filler is ideal for replacing facial fat loss, which occurs as a natural result of the aging process. It works by increasing collagen production, gradually and significantly increasing skin thickness, especially along the cheeks. Since poly-L-lactic acid is biocompatible (a material that does not harm the body), no skin test is required.
Dermal fillers, like Sculptra, have been referred to as the “liquid facelift” because they offer many of the benefits of a surgical facelift without the downtime. Although they cannot treat sagging skin, dermal fillers can rejuvenate the face by restoring volume to the cheeks, temples, and lower face. The results are immediate and at a lower cost than surgery. These treatments are not permanent and must be repeated to maintain the results. Dr. Doyle will evaluate your face to determine an individualized plan for the amount and type of filler needed to achieve the most natural looking results.
