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.

"When you are looking for getting your youth back, Dr. Schlyer has all the tools available to get you to a beautiful you again. I am so glad I found Dr. Schlyer as he is the best in his field. All my life I had my 11s between my eyebrows. Dr. Schlyer got that taken care of for me and I am amazed with the result! He not only took care of my 11s, but also smoothed out my forehead, and now I do not look angry any longer. He also noted that I could use some fillers to help with my smile lines. I did not even know that was an option! I cannot wait to get that done and look 10 to 15 years younger. Thank you Dr. Schlyer! Annie G"- A.G. / Google / Nov 30, 2020

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 our minor procedure room. Your injector 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 suggest a series of four Sculptra injections 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 apply cold packs to the injection sites. You should avoid UV exposure as much as possible after your treatment and always use sunscreen. 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.
