The Injectable Face Lift: Sculptra® Adds Volume and Lasting Results

Share Article

The Skin Center Medical Spa now offers Sculptra®, a longer-lasting injectable filler.

The Skin Center Medical Spa, with locations in Pittsburgh and Ohio, is now offering Sculptra® to help combat the signs of facial aging. Sculptra® is used to fill larger wrinkles and facial folds while stimulating new collagen production, creating younger, plumper skin.

Named by Prevention Magazine as one of the “top eight beauty breakthroughs of 2005,” Sculptra® offers long-lasting results, up to two years in many cases. Because the body begins to produce new collagen, the results last longer than most injectable fillers on the market today.

“Injectable fillers are among the most requested minimally invasive cosmetic procedures,” said Dominic Brandy, M.D., founding medical director of The Skin Center Medical Spa. “But where the effects of most injectable fillers diminish in a few months, Sculptra® provides lasting results, up to two years for many people. It not only fills the depressed area, but actually forces the body to create new collagen.”

Sculptra® is made of "poly-L-lactic acid," which occurs naturally in the human body. Because Sculptra® contains a non-animal based poly-L-lactic acid, no skin testing is required and there is little risk of an allergic reaction. The number of treatments needed depends on the severity of the depressed area and the amount of volume the patient would like to achieve. Generally, two or three treatments are needed to achieve the desired results.

The Skin Center Medical Spa specializes in non-invasive and minimally invasive aesthetic procedures designed to improve a person’s appearance with little or no downtime. Offering the most sought-after facial rejuvenation treatments on the market including Botox® Cosmetic, wrinkle fillers, gentle laser treatments, chemical peels, microdermabrasion and laser hair removal, The Skin Center Medical Spa is the foremost authority in advanced age-defying skin treatments.
