Volume loss is a natural, normal part of aging, but it can lead to common problems like deep wrinkles, sagging skin, and a sunken appearance in the mid-face. Dr. Ladie Araña-Domondon may recommend Sculptra for patients who are looking to restore lost volume and achieve a more youthful look.

Why is volume loss concerning?

As we age, our body naturally produces less collagen and elastin, which are small but important proteins that maintain skin firmness. This results in an overall loss of facial volume, particularly in the cheeks and temples. Repeated facial expressions and exposure to UV rays can also contribute to volume loss. You may look in the mirror and notice that your once plump and youthful face now appears hollow and tired.

How does Sculptra work?

Sculptra is a dermal filler that contains poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), a biocompatible and biodegradable substance. When administered into the deep layers of the skin, Sculptra fills in facial hollows and stimulates collagen production. Unlike other fillers, Sculptra provides instant results and also improves results over time. It lasts up to two years, making it a popular choice for patients looking for long-term facial rejuvenation.

What to expect during and after treatment

If you have volume loss and are interested in a comprehensive anti-aging treatment, schedule a consultation with Dr. Araña-Domondon. We will perform a custom assessment and ask about your health history, medication use, and aesthetic goals before recommending a way to move forward.

During Sculptra treatment, Dr. Araña-Domondon will carefully inject the filler into strategic locations based on your specific facial structure. The procedure only takes a few minutes, and you can return to your daily tasks and activities almost immediately afterward. Some patients in Puyallup, WA, experience mild bruising, redness, or swelling at the injection site, but these side effects usually resolve within a few days.
