Sculptra® Aesthetic is a dermal filler that replaces collagen, gradually restoring the fullness of youth to your face. It consists of a safe synthetic material called poly-L-lactic acid, and the results emerge over a period of months.
Sculptra® is especially effective on patients with deep creases, sagging in the jowl area, hollowed temples, or other facial and neck areas with excessive volume loss.
As a recognized expert in facial plastic surgery and facial reconstruction, Dr. Dutton approaches dermal filler injections with both health and aesthetics in mind. He is skilled at using these injections to sculpt the face for the younger look you want.

The Sculptra® Procedure
Sculptra® is injected a bit deeper into the skin than most other facial fillers. Lidocaine is included in the formula to provide some numbing from the fine needle.
For most patients, three Sculptra® injection sessions over a period of months can last as long as 2 years.
Sculptra® Injection Recovery
Sculptra® injections do not require a recovery period. You may have some minor bruising, swelling, and tenderness, however, as well as some small lumps at the injection sites. These are not visible, and these symptoms generally fade quickly. Any bruising can be hidden with makeup.
Dr. Dutton will instruct you to massage the injection areas for about 5 days after your procedure.
Sculptra® is FDA-approved, biodegradable, and biocompatible. Because of this, no allergy tests are required, and patients are very happy with their results.
