Sculptra® is a safe, synthetic, and biocompatible material that is injected below the surface of the skin in the area of fat loss. It provides a gradual and significant increase in skin thickness, improving the appearance of folds and sunken areas. Sculptra® is used to help restore fullness, or volume to sunken cheeks, indentation, and hollow eyes.
Why do we need volume restoration?
As we age, our faces begin to show the effects of gravity, sun exposure and years of facial muscle movement, such as smiling and chewing. This aging process also leads to loss of fullness in the face seen as a loss of cheek fullness, the appearance of sagging lower cheeks and lips (nasolabial folds), the thinning of lips and the appearance of hollows in the temples. As the facial volume that keeps our skin looking youthful and plumped-up diminishes over time, laugh lines, smile lines, facial creases and hollowness remain. We are happy to discuss facial volume restoration with you at your next consultation with Dr. Callahan.
