Traditional hyaluronic acid dermal fillers (ex: Restylane®, Belotero, and Juvéderm®) have become more and more sophisticated over the years, and in certain areas of the face they are indeed the best choice; these areas include the lips, the peri-oral region, and the tear trough region under the eye.
Although larger areas of volume loss like the temples, midface, cheeks, and the jawline can be treated with the same fillers mentioned above, multiple syringes of products are necessary to restore what has been lost fully. For example, a 50-year-old patient could easily require 1.5 syringes for the temple region, two syringes for the cheeks, and another two for the lower face. Keeping up with a five-to-six syringe correction of filler, two to three times a year, can become quite costly.
Sculptra® provides a sensible solution to the issue of maintaining your desired results in the long term. The effects of Sculptra® injections can last for many years, providing visible and youthful-looking fullness to the face, temples, jawline, and even the décolletage.
