Volume loss occurs naturally during the aging process, particularly in the middle of the face as the cheeks become flat and hollow. Elevate Medical Spa and Cosmetic Surgery, led by board-certified plastic surgeons Dr. Thornwell Parker and Dr. Kevin Hanz, offers Sculptra Aesthetic, a poly-L-lactic acid-based dermal filler that allows for longer lasting and deeper volume replacement in the apples of the cheeks. In addition to restoring the fullness of the cheeks, Sculptra can decrease the appearance of shallow to deep lines and wrinkles across the face, including the nasolabial folds (also known as smile or laugh lines) that start at the outside of the nose to the corners of the mouth. With its unique formula approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Sculptra promotes the natural production of collagen in your body, so even if you stop injections, your skin will still be healthier and stronger compared to before.

"This review is well overdue, but now you can be certain I am certain of my results! My skin wasn't horrid, but as it turns out, it needed work. I would get the usual lady cycle breakouts (even at 31) and the occasional pimple here and there. It would take 2-3 weeks to clear up. Who has time for that?! And then I was introduced to Felicia. Felicia put me on a ZO regimen in July. It took about a month for my skin texture to change. I did not even know that was a thing! My skin texture was smoother, brighter, and tighter! The compliments were rolling in!Fast forward to 6-7 months in, and if I may be self indulgent, am in love with my face. I always secretly wanted to be able to walk out of the house with no makeup (always sunscreen!) and look fantastic. With Felicia's guidance, I have been able to achieve that goal. My makeup consists of a tube of mascara, as I am confident enough not to hide behind foundation, CC cream, etc. It wasn't an overnight change, there are days where my face is itchy, there have been series of days of constant peeling and redness. However, I stuck with it, Felicia was a constant support, and I am so thankful I did."- R.B. / Yelp / Mar 13, 2018
"One of the most talented plastic surgeons. Dr Hanz is truly a miracle worker. Cosmetic surgery skills are amazing. He recently performed a very difficult hand surgery for my father in law. Amazing results. Highly recommend."- S.L. / Facebook / Feb 22, 2018
"Always a great result - I've received Botox treatments from Dr. Hanz and it always looks natural and I receive many compliments. Very happy with my care... Im contemplating other treatments and I wouldn't go anywhere else. His bedside manner is very pleasant as well.."- C. / RealSelf / Feb 01, 2018
"Breast Implant Removal and Liposuction - The staff at Elevate was amazing from scheduling my consultation down to the actual procedure. I had two separate procedures performed by Dr. Hanz the first one being a breast implant removal and the second one was liposuction. Dr. Hanz and his staff were very helpful in answering all of my questions and concerns. My continued care after the procedures has been substantial as well. I would highly recommend Dr. Hanz and his staff for any of your cosmetic needs."- H. / RealSelf / Jan 30, 2018
Sculptra is ideal for patients who want to boost fullness in their cheeks without surgical implants. Some patients may have naturally thin cheeks, while others experience volume loss with age. Sculptra dermal filler can also be used to treat shallow to deep facial lines and wrinkles, such as marionette lines, nasolabial folds, and chin wrinkles. Since Sculptra helps to boost the body's natural production of collagen, many patients will see a visible improvement in the appearance and overall health of their skin.
After your consultation to determine your custom treatment plan, you will have your Sculptra injections in one of our minor procedure rooms. The injector may apply a numbing cream or local anesthetic before cleaning and marking the areas to be injected. Once you are ready, the Sculptra will be injected in the deeper layers of the skin at the needed sites. For best results, our Elevate team suggests a series of 2-4 Sculptra injections, each done about 3 weeks apart.
What to Expect
After your treatment, you might have swelling or bruising at the sites of injections. To speed healing, you can apply cold packs to the treated areas and massage your face. You should avoid UV exposure as much as possible after your injection and use sun protection. Most patients will have improvements right after their injections with complete results developing after 3 – 5 months as the natural production of collagen strengthens the skin. When performed as a series of injections over the course of 3 – 4 months, your results can last up to 2 years.
