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 surgeon Dr. Thornwell Parker, 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.

"All the staff was very professional."- Anonymous / Healthgrades / Oct 12, 2017
"Dr Parker and his staff are amazing. Not only did he answer every question and concern I had, he listened and is was very down-to-earth. He is also helping me with locations where the cancer removal has disfigured my face. Skin cancer can be a little scary, but Dr Parker makes you feel very supported. The clinic is super clean, the staff is super nice and I would recommend him HIGHLY. A++"- M.H. / Healthgrades / Sep 24, 2021

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 fillers 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 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 scheduled about three weeks apart.
What to Expect
After your treatment, you might have swelling or bruising at the injection sites. 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 two years.
