Volume loss occurs naturally during the aging process, particularly in the mid-face as the cheeks become flat and hollow. Plastic surgeon Dr. S. Benjamin Albright offers Sculptra Aesthetic, a poly-L-lactic acid-based dermal filler that allows for deeper and longer-lasting volume replacement in the cheeks. In addition to improving the contour of the cheeks, Sculptra can decrease the appearance of shallow to deep lines and wrinkles throughout the face, including the nasolabial folds (also known as smile or laugh lines) that run from the sides of the nose to the corners of the mouth. With its unique formula approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Sculptra promotes the natural production of collagen in your body, so even if you stop treatments, your skin will still be healthier compared to before Sculptra injections.

"Dr. Allbright is an intelligent, caring, and fantastic doctor! He genuinely listens to your concerns and he is very willing to work with you and whatever your needs are. I have heard a few people say that Dr. Allbright is young, So they are concerned with his skill level. My comment to that, Dr. Allbright was trained in the best technology possible and he is super amazing in his abilities. I would prefer Dr. Allbright to have me in surgery for 13 hours rather than someone that is twice his age. My results have been completely amazing and although my original reason to see him was because of a diagnosis of breast cancer, he has truly helped to enhance my life and has made the best of a bad situation. His entire staff is extremely knowledgeable and they are so very caring. Anytime I called with a question, One of his staff got with me very quickly. I cannot rave enough about this amazing person. He truly treats you as an individual and not at all as just another client. He actually remembers things from your last visit. He is one of a kind!!!"- J.L. / Google / Aug 02, 2019

Sculptra is best for patients who want to add volume in their cheeks without surgery. Some patients may have naturally flat cheeks, while others experience age-related volume loss. Sculptra can also be used to fill shallow to deep facial lines and wrinkles, like marionette lines, nasolabial folds, and chin wrinkles. Since Sculptra helps to increase the body's natural production of collagen, many patients will have a visible improvement in the overall health and appearance of their skin.
What to expect
After your consultation to create your personal treatment plan, you will receive your Sculptra injections in one of our private procedure rooms. The injector may apply a numbing cream or local anesthetic before cleansing and marking the injection sites. Once you are ready, the filler will be injected into the deeper layers of the skin at the selected areas using a blunt-tip microcannula for accuracy and minimal discomfort. For best results, Dr. S. Benjamin Albright recommends a series of four Sculptra injections, each scheduled about three weeks apart.
After your Sculptra treatment, you may have mild to moderate redness, swelling, tenderness, or bruising at the injection site that should subside naturally in a few days. For faster healing, you can apply cold packs to the injection sites and massage your face. You should avoid UV exposure as much as possible after your treatment and use sun protection. Most patients will see visible improvements immediately after their injections with full results appearing after several months as the natural production of collagen strengthens the skin. When performed as a series of injections over the course of 3 – 4 months, results can last up to two years.
