Doctor Olson has used Sculptra since it’s FDA approval in 2004. Sculptra is not a wrinkle filler, but instead adds volume to the face which has lost fat or bone due to aging. This is a long-lasting building filler in which Poly- L-Lactic Acid (a biodegradable and biocompatible polymer that is used in absorbable sutures) is injected by Doctor Olson. This stimulates your own body to produce its own new collagen. Collagen that you keep until it is lost naturally. Sculptra continues to stimulate new collagen for 6 months to a year. At 2 years out you have almost half the effect left, so although not permanent, the result is very long lasting and maintainable.
Doctor Olson will evaluate your results with you to determine how many treatments you will need to achieve your desired volume and shape. You will experience some “delayed gratification” while your body begins its new collagen production, but your result will be worth the wait! Sculptra may be used in conjunction with more immediate fillers to build a longer lasting architecture to the face. It may also be used to create better structure for a stronger chin, jaw-line, and cheek bone.
