Lost volume occurs naturally during the aging process, particularly in the face as the cheeks become flat and hollow. Cosmetic physician Dr. Garry Lee offers Sculptra Aesthetic, a poly-L-lactic acid-based dermal filler that allows for fuller and longer-lasting volume replacement. In addition to increasing the volume of the cheeks, Sculptra can decrease the appearance of shallow to deep lines and wrinkles, including the nasolabial folds (also known as smile or laugh lines) that go from the edges of the nose to the corners of the mouth. Additionally, Dr. Lee utilizes Sculptra for not only the face, but also the the butt, as well as for the treatment of cellulite. With its unique formula approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Sculptra encourages the natural production of collagen in your body, so even if you stop treatments, your skin will still be healthier compared to before Sculptra injections. Schedule an appointment for a consultation at Look Younger MD in the Las Vegas, NV area to discover the benefits of this dermal filler.
"I have been a patient of Dr. Lee's for several years now. I have had various treatments from Sculpta, Juvéderm, Botox, dysport, etc. Not only is Dr. Lee professional and great at what he does, his staff is very friendly and welcoming! The office is very nice and is kept clean.. I credit Dr. Lee with making me look 10 years younger than I am!"- M.A. / Yelp / Sep 28, 2019
Sculptra is great for patients who want to improve contour in their cheeks without implants and surgery. Some candidates may have naturally hollow cheeks, while others experience full cheeks that deflated with age. Sculptra injections can also be used to improve shallow to deep facial lines and wrinkles, including chin wrinkles, nasolabial folds, and marionette lines. Dr. Lee also uses Sculptra for areas of the body to increase volume and diminish the appearance of cellulite. Since Sculptra helps to prompt the body's natural production of collagen, many patients will notice a visible improvement in the appearance and health of their skin.
After your consultation to develop your unique treatment plan, you will receive your Sculptra injections in one of our procedure rooms. The injector may apply a numbing cream or local anesthetic before sterilizing and marking the sites to be injected. Once you are ready, the Sculptra will be injected down to the deeper layers of the skin at the selected areas of the face and/or body. For best results, Dr. Garry Lee performs a series of four Sculptra injections, each performed at Look Younger MD about three weeks apart.
What to Expect
After your appointment, you may have mild to moderate redness, swelling, tenderness, or bruising at the injection areas that should resolve naturally in several days. To encourage healing, you can apply cold packs to the injected areas. You should avoid UV exposure as much as possible after your appointment and use sun protection. Most patients will notice clear improvements immediately following their appointment with final results seen after a few months, as the natural production of collagen strengthens the skin. When performed as a series of injections over the course of 3 – 4 months, a patient's results can last up to two years.
