What is Sculptra?
Volume loss occurs naturally during the aging process, especially in the middle of the face as the cheeks tend to become hollow and flat. Dr. Arthur Schlyer uses Sculptra Aesthetic, a poly-L-lactic acid injectable dermal filler that allows for deeper and longer-lasting volume replacement in the cheeks. In addition to improving the volume of the mid-face, Sculptra can reduce the look of fine to deep wrinkles and lines, including the nasolabial folds (sometimes known as smile or laugh lines) that start at the sides of the nose to the outer corners of the mouth. With its unique gel formula approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration), Sculptra increases the natural production of collagen in your body so even if you stop getting injections, your skin should still be stronger and healthier compared to before Sculptra injections. Schedule a consultation at Renuvia Medical Center in New Port Richey, FL to learn more about the benefits of this treatment.
"LOVE my new THREADS! Took years off my face,... and super natural looking. My friends think I just got a little extra rest. ;) Thanks to Dr. Schlyer's special numbing technique, the procedure was literally pain-free and I am such a wimp when it comes to pain. He and his whole staff are friendly, knowledgeable and caring. Thank you all for a great experience, I will definitely be back soon."- K.K. / Google / Nov 24, 2023

"Dr. Schlyer has been my Physician for many years. I crawled out bed on a Sunday morning with debilitating pain in my lower back that radiated down my left leg. That afternoon the pain had worsened to the point I went to the emergency room hoping to find the cause and some relief. After 2.5+ hours I departed with a diagnosis of Sciatica, and a script for a muscle relaxer. The following day the Team at Dr. Schlyer's office managed to find an appointment for me. Dr. Schlyer recommended a series of 4 Ozone injections 2 or 3 days apart, a means of treatment I had never heard of before my visit. I agreed, and miraculously beginning with the 1st injection the pain began to subside. The pain was gone and the range of motion restored thanks in my ! opinion to the 4 Ozone injections. Dr. Schlyer you once again found a way to help me live a better life. I have found over the years Dr. Schlyer's Team (Heather, Devon, Jackie, Emily and everyone else to be the best I have ever encountered anywhere. Go visit them! You'll be glad you did!"- S.S. / Google / Oct 24, 2022
"I have always wanted to have more fullness in my breasts but haven’t wanted to undergo the traditional augmentation surgeries mostly due to downtime and other risks. Dr Schlyer was able to remove some of the excess fat from my abdomen and flanks and then use that fat to put extra volume in my breasts. I am so happy! I went from a very small B to a full C which is exactly what I was looking for!"- Anonymous / Office Visit / Mar 16, 2022
Am I A Candidate for Sculptra?
Sculptra Aesthetic is great for anyone who wants to add contour in their mid-face without surgery. Candidates may have been born with thin cheeks while others have volume loss with age. Sculptra may also be used to treat fine to severe facial wrinkles and lines, like the nasolabial folds, marionette lines, and chin wrinkles. Since Sculptra's formula helps to increase the body's natural production of collagen in the skin, many Sculptra patients will see a visible improvement in the appearance and overall health of their complexion.
OUr Sculptra Injection Technique
After your consultation to determine your personal treatment plan, you can receive your Sculptra injections in one of our private treatment rooms. Dr. Schlyer may use a local anesthetic or numbing cream prior to sterilizing and marking the injection sites. Once you are prepared, the filler will be injected into the deeper skin layers in the chosen areas. For best results, Dr. Schlyer and his team may suggest a series of 2-4 Sculptra sessions that are each done at Renuvia Medical Center around three weeks apart.
What to Expect After Sculptra
After your treatment, you may experience mild to moderate redness, swelling, bruising, or tenderness at the injection site that should resolve on its own in 3 – 5 days. For faster healing, you can massage the treated area for 2 minutes up to 5 times daily for the next 5 days after the procedure. You can also apply cold packs to the injection sites. Many patients will notice improvements immediately after their Sculptra treatment with complete results seen after several months when the increased production of collagen improves the health of the complexion. If performed as a series of injections over 3 – 4 months, results can last as long as two years.
