How Sculptra Cosmetic Injections Can Improve Your Youthful Appearance
Volume loss in the facial area can impact a patient’s appearance. Both men and women over the age of 30 will naturally begin losing volume in their face due to the reduction of collagen and elastin. To counteract these changes, the team of Bay Area Laser Cosmetic Surgery Center encourages patients to book a consultation to learn about injectable services such as Sculptra.
What is Sculptra?
Dr. Armen Serebrakian describes Sculptra injections as volumizers for the face. This injectable gel, which is formulated with poly-L lactic acid, helps stimulates the body’s natural development of collagen and elastin. When injected into the facial contours, specifically the cheek area, it can result in a more youthful appearance in both men and women. Several injections over time are needed, but the results can last two years or longer.
Is Sculptra safe?
Sculptra has been approved by the FDA for cosmetic use and continues to be one of our highly recommended solutions for patients with sagging skin or lost volume. Sculptra can also be used alongside other injectables such as dermal fillers and neuromodulators which are also available at Dr. Armen Serebrakian’s practice. By combining injectables, patients can achieve a “liquid face lift” and improve many imperfections during one visit.
What can I expect from my Sculptra appointment?
First, patients book a consultation with Dr. Armen Serebrakian to discuss their cosmetic needs. If patients are deemed appropriate candidates for treatment, their skin will be cleansed, and a topical anesthetic is applied to the face. The injections are done in specific areas to target the parts of the face that have less volume, and patients leave the practice to go about the rest of their day without any interruption. Many patients come into our office during their lunch break to have injections completed.
