Those looking for a convenient and comfortable dermal filler that provides a natural and gradual increase in skin thickness often turn to Sculptra. Albany, NY based Deluca Plastic Surgery uses Sculptra to smooth out nasolabial folds, vertical lip lines, and the corners of your mouth. Sculptra is a non-animal, synthetic compound that helps your body replace lost collagen.
Sculptra is a poly-L-lactic acid filler with results that last up to two years in many patients. The unique manufacturing process provides a biocompatible and biodegradable synthetic material that helps the body replace collagen that is naturally lost as we age. When administered by an experienced plastic surgeon like Dr. DeLuca, the results appear smooth and subtle, creating a natural, more youthful looking appearance.
As with all dermal injectables, it is important to trust your face with a provider that has experience and an extensive knowledge of anatomy. While the procedure is intended to be relatively simple and extremely quick, in the wrong hands, this type of injection can deliver less than optimal results. Dr. DeLuca personally administers all cosmetic injections. Why? Because his anatomical knowledge, skill, and years of experience lead to better results and fewer complications to ensure your risk of side effects are minimized while maximizing beautiful results.
Sculptra restores your skin’s volume for a smooth, natural look and feel. It is not a quick fix and often takes several treatments to achieve long-lasting results. Many men and women prefer the subtle and gradual anti-aging process to the abrupt and dramatic results that occur with other dermal injectables, such as Botox or Juvederm.
Sculptra mimics the hydrating and lifting effect of your skin’s natural collagen, which keeps the skin hydrated and elastic. It fills in and smooths away facial lines, acne scars, other skin contour deficiencies, and lost volume.
If you would like to learn more about Sculptra, Albany, NY plastic surgeon Dr. DeLuca is available to answer your questions. There are some types of wrinkles that are not good candidates for Sculptra and we would be happy to discuss your current situation and the goals you have in mind. Depending on the thickness of your skin, location of the wrinkles, and degree of wrinkling, we will be able to customize a plan to improve your appearance and recommend alternate dermal fillers such as Juvederm or Radiesse if necessary. Having personally administered thousands of injections of Juvederm, Restylane, Sculptra, Radiesse and Botox, Dr. DeLuca is an expert at determining which facial filler is best for you.
