Can Sculptra Tighten Your Jawline?

Sculptra is an effective treatment option for tightening the skin around your jawline and reducing the appearance of sagging jowls.

Loose, sagging jowls are a common complaint among dermatology patients who are older. The natural aging process is often associated with loosening skin around the jawline, and certain factors can contribute to the acceleration of jawline sagging.

However, you can easily turn back the clock and rejuvenate your appearance through Sculptra treatments. Talk to a clinician to find out if Sculptra could be the right treatment for your anti-aging goals.

What Is Sculptra?

Sculptra for jawline contouring is a nonsurgical cosmetic procedure. Sculptra is a poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) dermal filler that, like all dermal fillers, works by plumping up wrinkles and correcting volume loss.

However, Sculptra also works by stimulating the skin to produce collagen, which gives the skin more structural support and effectively addresses loose, sagging skin—such as that along the jawline. In other words, Sculptra works with your body to naturally replenish the skin.

Is Sculptra Right for Me?

Only a dermatologist can determine if Sculptra is the right treatment for your sagging jowls or other cosmetic concerns. In general, however, the treatment is very well tolerated and quite safe.

Be sure to inform the clinician of your full medical history, including your history of allergic reactions, if any, and whether you are susceptible to hypertrophic scarring or keloid formation.

What Can I Expect From Sculptra Treatments? How does it work?

Most dermal fillers are injected into the upper layers of skin. Sculptra is injected into the deep dermis, where it can work its magic stimulating collagen production.

Because it’s a deeper injection, Sculptra contains added lidocaine—a gentle numbing agent—to minimize discomfort. Before injecting Sculptra, the dermatologist will cleanse your skin to prevent the possibility of an infection.

Then, you’ll receive multiple injections into strategic locations along the jawline. After administering the injections, the clinician will gently massage the treated areas to enable the dermal filler to be evenly distributed along the jawline, ensuring you get the best results possible.

In total, it generally takes less than 30 minutes to receive your treatment. There is no downtime required, which means you could get the procedure done on your lunch break and head back to work.

How Long Will Sculptra Tighten My Jawline?

The use of Sculptra for sagging jowls is particularly ideal because it lasts longer than many other dermal fillers. You can expect to enjoy your results for at least two years, and likely even longer with maintenance visits.

However, you should know that you won’t see the full results right away. Since Sculptra primarily works by building collagen and elastin proteins in the area, it takes some time for the process to take effect.

In most cases, patients see gradual improvements within three to nine months. These gradual improvements are particularly attractive for patients who prefer a natural look and don’t want to look as if they’ve “had work done.”

Lift Your Face with Temple Fillers

Wrinkles, loss of skin tone, and facial sagging are inevitable parts of growing older. But if you aren’t yet ready to look your age, you certainly don’t have to. 

There are plenty of aesthetic treatments that can allow you to camouflage your age and even look more energized and refreshed. One such option is temple fillers—an injectable placed in the temples to provide a lift to the upper face and eye area. 

What Exactly are Temple Fillers? 

A temple filler is a dermal filler injectable that is placed in the temples. There are many types of dermal fillers, including those comprised of hyaluronic acid. 

Temple dermal fillers plump up the area, rejuvenating one’s appearance and reducing the signs of aging. It only takes a few minutes to place the temple fillers in position, and there is no downtime required. 

Why Consider Getting Temple Fillers? 

You may already know that dermal fillers are a popular option for reducing the signs of aging elsewhere in the face— such as the cheeks, jawline, under-eye hollows, and lips. Now, temple fillers are becoming increasingly popular because they can create results similar to an upper face or eye lift, but without the need for surgery. 

The temples might not receive as much attention as other areas of the face, but they do play a deceptively significant role in the overall shape and contour of your face. When they are full, as in youth, the temples help create better balance for your facial proportions. 

The aging process creates many changes, including the loss of volume in various areas of the face like the temples. Age-related changes in the bone, soft tissues, and connective tissues mean that there is less structural support in the area, leading to loss of volume and the appearance of wrinkles and folds. 

Your temples are one of the areas that show the earliest signs of aging and volume loss and can start as early as the mid-20s. If you’ve noticed that your temples are starting to look sunken or hollowed out, it may be time to consider getting dermal fillers in the area.    

What Can Temple Fillers Accomplish? 

If your temples are affected by the loss of structural support, dermal fillers can plump up the area to provide better support to the tissues and skin. Temple fillers can restore a more youthful contour and shape to your face. 

The benefits of temple fillers can include: 

  • Restored volume in the temple area 
  • Reduced appearance of lines and wrinkles around the temples, eyes, and forehead areas 
  • Stimulates collagen production for better skin firmness 

Dermal fillers can be long-lasting, but their effects aren’t permanent. The duration of your results will depend on the type of filler used for your treatment and your unique response to it. To maintain your results, you can schedule ongoing touch-up appointments. 

Ready for a Nonsurgical Eyelift? 

If you desire a younger appearance without the need for plastic surgery, then injectable fillers in Dallas may be the right choice for you. Dallas Dermatology Partners is a team of innovative clinicians who understand the importance of client education and personalized treatment recommendations. 

Together, we’ll review your medical history, skincare concerns, and aesthetic goals to determine if temple fillers could be the right choice for you. Contact us today to schedule your Dallas dermatology appointment and look forward to a refreshed, rejuvenated appearance! 

Sculptra for an Aging Chest & Décolletage

If you’re bothered by crepey, wrinkled skin on the décolleté— your lower neckline— a series of Sculptra filler treatments can be an effective, non-invasive solution. This dermal filler is renowned for providing dramatic improvements in both skin quality and volume restoration, and it’s a favorite cosmetic treatment here at Dallas Dermatology Partners.

Though often on display, the skin on the décolletage is regularly overlooked in our daily beauty routines. Fine lines and deep wrinkles can develop quickly on this area of thin, delicate skin as the effects of time and gravity take their toll. Creases and lines on the upper chest are fairly common among women, especially those who are habitual side sleepers.

Let’s discuss other common contributors to causing chest wrinkles and what you can do to rejuvenate and restore your skin.

What Factors Cause Chest Wrinkles?

The two vital proteins that keep the skin supple, elastic, and smooth – collagen and elastin – gradually diminish with the natural aging process. This loss of internal structural support is compounded by UV exposure that further triggers collagen breakdown.

These are the common factors that can cause premature wrinkles and creases on the chest and cleavage:

  • Dehydration – a chronic lack of moisture (both internally and externally) is a major culprit. Be sure to stay hydrated and apply an antioxidant-rich moisturizer to your chest and neck 2X daily.
  • UV damage – A broad spectrum SPF 30+ sunscreen can help ward off free radical damage caused by repeated sun exposure.
  • Sleeping position – women with larger busts who sleep on their sides are more prone to developing visible lines and creases on their chest.
  • Ill-fitting bras or shapewear – an unsupportive or badly fitting bra that pushes your cleavage too tightly can create wrinkles over time.

How Does Sculptra Work?

Sculptra is made of poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) – a sugar molecule that stimulates collagen production. This biodegradable filler is a superior choice for chest rejuvenation, as it replenishes volume while restoring the skin’s structural framework.  The injections strengthen the underlying foundation of the skin, and once the revitalizing effects take hold – they can last for up to 24 months.

For best results, most patients will benefit from a series of 2 or 3 Sculptra treatments spaced one month apart. Since collagen synthesis takes time, the final results won’t be evident for at least six months.

Benefits of Sculptra for Skin Rejuvenation

There are several benefits to choosing Sculptra for chest and décolletage rejuvenation, including:

  • Non-invasive procedure with no downtime
  • Restores the body’s own collagen
  • Wrinkles and fine lines are greatly diminished
  • Replenishes lost volume and structural support
  • Helps to prevent future wrinkles
  • Beautiful results that can last up to 2 years

Is Sculptra Better Than Filler?

Sculptra isn’t better than fillers, but it does produce different results than other injectables. It may be best for you if you’re interested in long-term anti-aging benefits. However, the right cosmetic treatment for you will depend on your unique skincare needs and goals. Speak with a clinician at Dallas Dermatology Partners about your skincare issues to determine if a Sculptra treatment or a different injectable might suit your needs. Sometimes, a dermatologist may recommend using Sculptra and another injectable to produce optimal results.

Sculptra vs. fillers: Comparing your treatment options

Sculptra is a type of dermal filler; however, it’s considered a separate category. Most dermal fillers, like Juvederm and Restylane, are comprised of hyaluronic acid, which naturally occurs throughout the body. When you lose volume due to aging, your skin begins to sag and develops a sunken appearance. You also start to develop fine lines and wrinkles. A dermatologist can inject a hyaluronic acid dermal filler into those areas to temporarily restore lost volume and plump up the areas affected by wrinkles.

Sculptra is poly-L-lactic acid in powder form which is then reconstituted with water, which dermatologists can inject into key areas. It acts as a collagen stimulator, triggering extra collagen production to provide greater structure, volume, and support. Since it is growing the patient’s own collagen, the final result can take up to nine months to be visible.  However, improvement in skin texture can be seen as early as one month post-treatment.

Sculptra is an excellent maintenance treatment for anti-aging and is ideally combined with hyaluronic acid fillers to address areas of concern.

Which dermal filler is right for you?

Whether your dermatologist will recommend Sculptra or a hyaluronic acid dermal filler depends on your skin issues and goals. If you’re interested in getting rapid results which will be relatively short-term, then hyaluronic acid dermal fillers can be the right choice for you. On the other hand, if you’re interested in long-term results, Sculptra may be best.

When is it a good idea to use both types of cosmetic treatments?

It’s possible and often recommended to combine multiple types of injectables to produce the best results. Your dermatologist will evaluate your skin, consider your age and medical history, and discuss your goals for your appearance to determine if using both types of injectables is the right choice for you.

Since hyaluronic acid dermal fillers work produce immediate results, they can be the right choice if you desire a quick transformation. However, if you’re also interested in long-term anti-aging improvement, Sculptra can be used with another filler. The results last longer since it grows your own collagen.

Your age and amount of volume loss is another consideration. If you’re younger (e.g., in your 20s), you may want hyaluronic acid to enhance certain features such as the lips or cheeks and may decide on Sculptra for the long-term age-fighting benefits. However, if you’re in your 40s, 50s, or beyond, you may want a dermal filler like Juvederm or Restylane–for the more immediate correction of volume loss, along with Sculptra for long-term benefits.

Does Eye Filler Get Rid of Bags?

Tear trough fillers such as Restylane and Juvederm can replace volume loss in the tear trough hollows. These cosmetic injections re-volumize the under-eye area for a more youthful, refreshed look. The thin skin around the eyes loses fat as part of the natural aging process. This can cause puffy bags and indented shadows that look like dark circles. Under-eye fillers smooth out this fragile area, helping to create a more rested look.  However, fillers do not correct eye puffiness that results from fat herniation, edema from allergies, or severe skin laxity.  A surgical blepharoplasty is the preferred procedure of choice in these cases. Your doctor will access your tear trough and recommend the best treatment suited for you.

How Do Facial Fillers Work?

Hyaluronic acid (HA) is the best filler for eye bags and hollows because it’s a biocompatible material that our bodies produce naturally. Products like Restylane and Juvederm are popular HA-based facial fillers. They have a smaller molecular structure that is easily manipulated for natural-looking improvements. However, while dermal filler can improve the look of mild to moderate under-eye bags and puffiness, it cannot correct large, fluid-filled bags or dark circles caused by pigmentation.

Conservative Injections For Optimal Results

A conservative approach is always recommended when injecting filler around the eyes. Too much filler will create an unnatural look. While the area is visibly plumped after the first injection, we advise a follow-up appointment in 10-14 days. In this way, we can do touch-ups where needed to achieve optimal results.

What Happens During The Procedure?

A topical numbing agent is applied and left to sit on the skin for 30 minutes. Once the skin is numbed, the hyaluronic acid filler is injected with a cannula or small needle. It is perfectly normal to feel some pressure as the filler is injected. Juvederm and Restylane contain lidocaine which numbs and constricts blood vessels. After the injection, a light massage over the skin helps to settle and smooth the gel-like filler.

Under-Eye Filler Can Last More Than A Year

Under-eye filler generally lasts nine months to a year and sometimes longer. Because the under-eye area has less movement than the mouth or the cheeks, it usually lasts longer. Everyone metabolizes hyaluronic acid at different rates so the duration can vary from patient to patient. During your Dallas dermatology appointment, your doctor will recommend a timeline for follow-up treatments to maintain results.

When Will I See The Results?

You will start to see improvements in texture and volume right away, with continued improvements over the following two weeks as the filler begins to settle. In addition, shadows caused by slight indentations are minimized, producing a brighter under-eye area.

There Is No Downtime Involved

There is no need to take time off work after getting under eye filler. While mild swelling and bruising may occur, these side effects resolve within a few days. Cold compresses can help with inflammation.

Freshen Up Your Look Without Surgery

At Dallas Dermatology Partners, our board-certified dermatologists have extensive knowledge of facial anatomy. We believe subtle improvements yield a more natural result, and we always take a conservative approach when doing facial filler treatments. Say goodbye to under-eye bags that can make you look tired and older than your actual years. Contact us today to schedule an appointment.

What Fillers Are Most Common For Men?

At Dallas Dermatology Partners, the most popular fillers for men are chin, jawline, and cheek injections. Dermal filler injections with products like Restylane and Juvederm are a safe and effective way to reshape facial features and reverse the effects of age, gravity, and sun damage. Composed of a gel-like substance, facial fillers add volume to soften creases and can be artfully injected to contour the jawline and chin for a more masculine and angular profile.

1. Jawline Contouring

Carefully injected filler along the lateral jawline can provide a more chiseled profile. Men can benefit from this lunch-hour treatment. Jawline filler serves several purposes. It can create a stronger, square-looking profile, balance an asymmetrical jaw, and reduce the appearance of jowls.

2. Reshape and Augment the Chin

Fillers can also create facial harmony and balance by adding subtle projection to the chin. In addition, they enhance natural bone structure to create a strong profile that exudes authority and confidence. Fillers can also fill in a cleft and create a better definition between the neck and face.

3. Restore Volume to the Midface

Collagen and elastin levels decline with age, and this volume loss is particularly evident in the midface. Men can achieve a more youthful look by having fillers injected in the cheeks, temples, and under-eye area. Fillers can plump up hollow temples, lift and sculpt cheeks and improve the appearance of tired and sunken eyes.

4. Smooth Fine Lines & Wrinkles

Dermal fillers are an excellent, non-surgical way to combat the inevitable signs of aging, like deeper nasolabial folds and lines that form with repetitive facial expressions. Results are almost immediate, with continued improvements in texture and volume for up to 12 months.

5. Nose Reshaping

Facial filler can disguise nasal humps, add projection to the nasal tip and even create a straighter-looking nasal bridge.

6. Combining Fillers with Other Injectables

Many of our patients benefit from combining dermal filler with other cosmetic treatments for men. For example, Botox injections prevent muscle contractions that cause wrinkles and can erase forehead lines and deep furrows between the brows. Injections are virtually painless, and the results generally last up to 4 months.

Fantastic yet natural-looking results can be achieved with a Botox and filler combination during your Dallas dermatology appointment.

Cosmetic Treatments for Men at Dallas Dermatology Partners

Whether you want to bring more definition to the chin and jaw or regain a more youthful edge, our skilled dermatologists can outline the best treatment plan during a private consultation. Contact us today to book your appointment with an expert who understands the goals of male patients.

Does Chin Filler Give You A Jawline?

Yes, chin filler can help improve your jawline when strategically injected. But, for best results on the lower face, it should be combined with a jawline filler with more structure and lift capacity. Of course, if you’re looking to correct asymmetry or enhance chin projection, then chin filler can be incredibly effective. But if a more angular and defined profile is on your wish list, talk to our team at Dallas Dermatology Partners about Juvederm VOLUX, the latest addition to the Juvederm family of facial fillers.

Chin & Jaw Filler Combination for Best Results

Juvederm VOLUX is the first hyaluronic acid-based filler specifically formulated and FDA-approved for use on the jawline. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring compound that plumps and adds volume for improved structure and harmony.

On its own, filler injected in the chin can help improve size and shape, but it won’t affect the lateral jawline. However, targeted injections of Juvederm Volux can help provide a more chiseled and pronounced jawline. What makes Juvederm Volux different from other hyaluronic acid fillers? It has a much thicker formulation and better cohesivity for more “lifting” action.

Benefits of Jaw & Chin Fillers

Whether due to age, gravity, or genetics, loss of jawline definition is easily remedied with dermal fillers. Facial filler injections are a popular, non-surgical way to address aesthetic concerns with minimal side effects and downtime.

Used in conjunction, chin and jaw fillers can help:

  • Improve symmetry and facial harmony
  • Contour a receding jawline
  • Add more definition
  • Create a more lifted appearance
  • Correct a recessed chin
  • Minimize the appearance of jowls
  • Balance facial features

How Long Do Chin and Jawline Filler Results Last?

Everyone metabolizes hyaluronic acid filler at different rates. The compound will naturally break down over time, and depending on the amount injected, you can expect your results to last between 8 and 16 months. To maintain desired results, plan touch-up treatments every 6-8 months or as recommended by your dermatologist.

What to Expect During the Treatment

The procedure is relatively quick and usually takes less than 30 minutes. Your dermatologist will administer a series of subcutaneous injections based on your desired goals and facial shape, gently massaging the filler in place.

Results are immediate, but the full effects won’t be evident for a week when the facial filler has settled. The most common side effects, which last a couple of days, are mild swelling, bruising, and tenderness at the points of injection. There is no downtime, and you can get back to work and your normal routine immediately after your Dallas dermatology appointment.

Jawline Contouring at Dallas Dermatology Partners

Enhanced definition of the chin and jawline can help balance the lower face. Facial fillers are a safe and cost-effective way to restore proportions and address common cosmetic concerns. Contact us today to learn more about chin and jawline filler treatment with our board-certified dermatologists.

Botox vs. Dermal Fillers: What’s the Difference?

Whether you’re interested in fuller lips or youthful skin, cosmetic treatments can help you turn your goals into a reality. Some of the most popular injectables, Botox and dermal fillers, are usually given in a doctor’s office. These procedures are minimally invasive so you can return to your daily routine with minimal downtime.

That said, Botox and dermal or facial fillers are far from the same—each injectable works differently. At Dallas Dermatology Partners, we’re here to help you navigate the differences between each option so you can make the best choice.

What is Botox?

Botox Cosmetic, also called onabotulinumtoxinA, is an injectable medication used safely to achieve a youthful, natural appearance since 1989. Botox works by blocking nerve signals and temporarily stopping or reducing muscle activity in injected areas while preserving your normal facial expressions–for a subtle result. This process helps to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles for up to six months with minimal discomfort and downtime.

Before you schedule an appointment to get Botox in Dallas, it’s important to search for the right dermatologist, credentials, and experience. Our expert dermatologists take a conservative approach to Botox to provide natural results that align with your unique aesthetic goals.

What are dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers are injections given under the skin. Like Botox, they can help smooth fine lines, reduce wrinkles, and add fullness. The most notable difference between dermal fillers and Botox is the length of the results.

Some fillers are temporary, meaning the injected substances are gradually broken down and absorbed by your body and can last anywhere from 6 to 12 months. Other synthetic dermal fillers can last as long as 2 to 5 years. FDA-approved fillers are typically made of hyaluronic acid, calcium hydroxylapatite, or poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA).

What’s the difference between Botox and filler?

Now that you know what Botox and dermal filler are, what are their main differences? And which is the best choice for you? While dermal fillers and Botox injections can help treat fine lines and wrinkles, they work differently to achieve the desired result.

Here are some of the main differences between Botox and dermal fillers:

  • Uses: Dermal fillers are implants injected under the skin, while Botox is injected into the muscle. Dermal fillers are primarily used for cosmetic purposes, while some versions of Botox can be injected to treat medical conditions, such as muscle stiffness or migraines.
  • Results: Unlike Botox, dermal fillers provide more immediate, long-lasting results. Most people see results from Botox within three to four months after treatment, and patients often get repeated injections to maintain their results.
  • Side effects: The side effects of dermal fillers can arise a few days after injections, with most disappearing within one to two weeks. Dermal fillers can cause bruising and swelling around the injection site, and Botox may cause swelling and redness.

To find out which treatment is right for you, schedule a Dallas dermatology appointment with one of our compassionate doctors. We’ll help you explore your options and deliver personalized care so you can enjoy beautiful, natural-looking results.

How Long Do Sculptra Results Last?

The results from Sculptra generally last more than two years, though this can vary among individuals. It is a highly effective collagen-building filler that helps restore firmness and volume to aging skin.

This FDA-approved facial filler rejuvenates the skin by stimulating your body to produce collagen. It is the protein that keeps the skin supple and elastic. By triggering collagen synthesis deep within the dermis, the skin’s inner support structure is restored for a more youthful look. At Dallas Dermatology Partners, we’re here to provide exceptional dermatology care to all our patients. So if you’re interested in this versatile filler, contact us for a consult.

What Is Sculptra?

Most volume-restoring injectables are composed of hyaluronic acid, which provides instant but relatively short-lived results. On the other hand, Sculptra is made of poly-L-lactic acid, a collagen-stimulating compound. It allows the skin to gradually renew its structural foundation over a period of months.

It is a versatile filler that is effective for smoothing wrinkles and fine lines, lifting sagging skin, filling hollow areas, and contouring features. It is an ideal treatment for those looking for subtle, natural-looking improvements.

How Long Until You See Effects?

Because collagen production takes time, the initial effects of a Sculptra treatment are usually evident after six weeks. Changes in volumization and firmness will continue to improve with each passing month.

How Many Sculptra Treatments Are Needed?

Our dermatologists optimize Sculptra in Dallas results with two-to-three treatments spaced one month apart. The quality of the skin, the location of the injections, and the dosage administered will affect the longevity of the final results.

Tips for Maintaining Results

Follow these tips to prolong the rejuvenating effects of Sculptra:

  • Minimize UV exposure and use a broad-spectrum sunscreen daily
  • Use quality anti-aging skincare products that are formulated to protect dermal health
  • Stay hydrated and consume nutrient-dense whole foods
  • Avoid aggressors like tobacco and alcohol, as both trigger an inflammatory response that destroys collagen and inhibits the synthesis of this vital protein

Finally, you can maintain collagen production with 1 or 2 Sculptra treatments every year, as indicated by your dermatologist.

What Areas Can You Treat with Sculptra?

Sculptra can help you turn back time, providing long-lasting improvements in addressing the following:

  • Hollow temples
  • Deep nasolabial folds
  • Smile lines
  • Volume loss in cheeks
  • Chest and chin wrinkles
  • Sagging jawlines
  • Skin laxity on the knees and upper arms
  • Veins and volume loss on the hands
  • Buttock lifting

Sculptra: The Anti-Aging Maintenance Treatment You Need

Sagging skin, fine lines, and wrinkles are a normal part of the natural aging process. While plenty of cosmetic injectables can refresh your appearance, Sculptra is the only filler that activates your skin’s intrinsic regenerative process. It’s made of Poly-L-lactic acid which triggers the production of collagen–the protein that keeps skin firm and supple.

This FDA-approved dermal filler does more than plump up hollow areas in the face. Each Sculptra treatment restores the skin’s underlying infrastructure for amazing natural looking results because diminished collagen is replaced. As a proven collagen stimulator, Sculptra is the anti-aging maintenance treatment of choice for our Dallas patients.

Benefits of Sculptra for Anti-Aging

Sculptra goes the distance by working synergistically to renew your skin’s elasticity and tone. Once injected deep beneath the skin’s surface, the Poly-L-lactic acid micro-particles stimulate the body to build collagen over a period of weeks and months. As a result, patients notice steady but measurable improvements in wrinkles and creases, as well as overall firmness. In addition, Sculptra restores lost volume and fullness over time, allowing patients to age gracefully. The gradual onset of rejuvenating effects is another advantage, as Sculptra never produces an over-filled look.

Long-Lasting Rejuvenation

Sculptra is different than injectable dermal fillers made of hyaluronic acid that temporarily restore lost volume. These treatments are effective for lifting and plumping, but only for short periods. Since Sculptra rebuilds your skin’s framework from the inside out through collagen synthesis, the results can last upwards of two years. Even if injections aren’t repeated, patients will still reap the anti-aging benefits of the newly formed collagen.

Versatile Injectable Filler

Sculptra promises natural-looking facial improvements and is also great for the neck and chest. The injectable rebuilds collagen fibers helping to diminish the appearance of:

  • Smile lines
  • Nasolabial folds
  • Sunken cheeks
  • Hollow temples
  • Marionette lines
  • Wrinkles on the neck and chest

Sculptra Combined with Other Treatments

In the context of anti-aging skin care, Sculptra is a smart option. Its versatility, safety, and mechanism of action make it one of our most popular cosmetic treatments. We often combine it with other therapies, including Botox, laser resurfacing, and BBL, to achieve dramatic improvements in skin tone and clarity. Our dermatologists work with patients to develop individualized treatment plans that focus on specific concerns.

Optimal Results with Several Treatments

Sculptra does not work overnight, which is helpful as it allows us to tailor additional treatments for natural-looking results. The amount of filler injected will depend on the issues being addressed and desired goals. We usually recommend several months between Sculptra treatments to evaluate improvements and assess further injections.

Age-Defying Skincare in Dallas

Sculptra treatments maintain healthy and youthful skin and deliver long-lasting results. For more information about this innovative injectable that replaces lost collagen, we invite you to make a Dallas dermatology appointment today.
