  • Injecting Scuptra - Shahdi Vakili FNP -C

    So here I am at work doing what I do best . Our friend wanted a little bit of a touch up. She came to me with concernes about her hollowness to her temples. She said she wanted to look softer and felt hollows. Well thats easy, Sculptra to the rescue. What is this magical stuff! it magically softens the face and fills in the hollowness that apears with age to the temples and midface, naso labial folds and chin. 

    Sculptra is made  from poly-L-lactic acid, Sculptra is approved by the FDA for the restoration and correction of facial fat loss. Its typically  used to treat deep folds between the nose and mouth as well as creases and wrinkles around the mouth and volume loss to the  chin. Through a series of injections over a period of a few months,  one can begin to see  growth of new collagen.  The injected sculptra  creates  an environment beneath the skin that encourages the remodeling of collogen allowing the body to stimulate its own collowgen.  As a result, changes appear gradually and create natural-looking, long-lasting improvements that can last up to 2 years if not longer! 

    This is her first series of injections, we will follow this patient to see her end result.
