Loss of volume happens during the natural aging process, especially in the middle of the face as the cheeks tend to become hollow and flat. Cosmetic surgeon Dr. Edward M. Zimmerman uses Sculptra Aesthetic, a poly-L-lactic acid injectable dermal filler that allows for longer-lasting and deeper volume in the apples of the cheeks. In addition to restoring the fullness of the mid-face, Sculptra can reduce the look of fine to deep wrinkles and lines, like the nasolabial folds (sometimes called laugh or smile lines) that start at the outside of the nose down to the outer corners of the lips. With a unique gel formula approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration), Sculptra encourages the natural collagen production in your body so even after you stop getting injections, your complexion should be stronger and healthier. Schedule an appointment at Aesthetic Revolution Las Vegas in Nevada to hear about the advantages of this aesthetic treatment.
"I recently visited for fillers on my cheekbone and jawline (Radiesse Plus), as well as some wrinkle relaxer (Xeomin). The process took a little longer than I had expected but the injector was well versed in her practice and very gentle with me. I am very happy with the results. There was a little bruising which is normal with deeper fillers, but from day 1 it was a great improvement. Never thought that just a couple syringes (ok ok like 4 Radiesse, 1 Xeomin) could make such a difference in how I see myself and how others do as well. Highly recommend."- M.J. / Google / Jun 22, 2019
"I have gone here several times in the past month due to a Nevus on my face, as a young person it bothers me and effects my self confidence. Dr Zimmerman was able to laser it off, suggest IPL to help the collagen come through and really increase my self confidence overall. I love that every time I have a procedure or am looked at he turns it into an educational moment not only for his staff but me as well. I look forward to going through any cosmetic need through him and his team."- L.T. / Yelp / Oct 29, 2019

Sculptra Aesthetic is ideal for anyone who wants to boost fullness in their mid-face without surgical implants. Candidates may have been born with thin cheeks, whereas other patients have volume loss with age. Sculptra dermal filler may also help to treat fine to severe facial wrinkles and lines, such as chin wrinkles, nasolabial folds, and marionette lines. Since Sculptra's formula works to boost the natural production of collagen in the skin, most Sculptra patients will see an improvement in the appearance and overall health of their complexion.
Following your consult to determine your custom plan for treatment, you can receive your injections in our minor procedure room. Dr. Z can use a local anesthetic or numbing cream prior to cleaning and marking the areas to be injected. As soon as you are prepared, Sculptra is injected into the deeper skin layers at the chosen sites. For longer-lasting results, Dr. Z suggests a series of four treatments that are each done at Aesthetic Revolution Las Vegas around three weeks apart.
What to Expect
Following your treatment, you may experience mild or moderate swelling, redness, bruising, or tenderness at the site of injections that should heal on its own in 3 – 5 days. To speed healing, you may apply a cold compress to the treated areas. You should limit UV exposure after your injection and always use sunscreen. Many patients will have improvements right after their appointment with complete results developing after 3 – 5 months when the increased collagen production improves the health of the complexion. If Sculptra is performed in a series over 3 – 4 months, your results may be visible for as long as two years.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does Sculptra cost?
Sculptra injections can range in price, depending on how many units are needed to achieve your wanted results. Some patients may also need a series of treatments for the optimal outcome. During your consultation, we will discuss your treatment goals and tailor a treatment plan for your specific budget.
How does Sculptra work?
Sculptra is a poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) collagen stimulator that works within the dermis of the skin to help stimulate the production of collagen. It can help to restore the skin’s inner structure and volume over time as more collagen is formed. The rebuilt strands of collagen can effectively plump and fill out facial folds and wrinkles.
Are Sculptra injections safe?
Approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration), Sculptra has a long history of safety worldwide since 1999. Though side effects are rare, they can include slight pain, bruising, swelling, and/or redness. In some cases, bumps may become noticeable when pressure is applied to the injected area. Contact Aesthetic Revolution Las Vegas if you experience any abnormal or lasting side effects.
What is the best age to receive Sculptra?
Sculptra is beneficial for individuals who are wanting to soften and reduce the appearance of facial lines and wrinkles. It can specifically be used to restore chin wrinkles, lines surrounding the mouth, and deep lines between the nose and mouth. The most common age to receive Sculptra injections is between 30 – 55; however, it is also common for patients who are younger and older than this range to receive injections.
How long do Sculptra results last?
For longer-lasting results, some patients may need to receive several Sculptra treatments. Sculptra is different from other fillers because the results usually last up to two years. Since the production of collagen continues to develop over time, results may appear more gradually.
