Sculptra anticipated results
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. Schedule a consultation at Albright Plastic Surgery in Houston, TX to learn more about the benefits of Sculptra dermal filler.

"Dr. Albright and his staff provided excellent care during my breast reconstruction after breast cancer surgery. My appointments never felt rushed and Dr. Albright took the time to listen, answered my questions and explained everything very well. Their office facilities are very nice and I was able to get appointments when I needed to. Thankful to Dr. Albright and his staff for all they did during my care."- J.H. / Healthgrades / Jun 13, 2020
"Dr. Albright is a great plastic surgeon. He takes the time to answer all of your questions and ensure that you understand everything. My surgery was due to breast cancer and I was terrified that I would never be the same again. To be honest, I look better now at 50 than I have since my first child was born. I have always been VERY modest, but for the First time I am actually proud of my body now. I really attribute it completely to Dr. Albright for his amazing skills. My scars after Diep flap are gone on my breasts ( I scar easily too) and What is left to my scar on my panty line is really on my panty line (how does he do that)? The staff in the office have become like family. They all really care about my health and how I’m doing and feeling. I am so blessed that this experience led me to Dr. Albright and his staff. I trust him completely! I would go no where else!!"- J.H. / Healthgrades / May 05, 2020
Sculpt A Youthful Face
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 with Sculptra®
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.
Sculptra Ideal Candidates
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.
