Sculptra, or Newfill, is one of the newest injectable fillers which works by correcting the signs of lipoatrophy, or fat loss, of the face. It is commonly used for the aging population and patients whose collagen and fat tissue have been damaged or scarred secondary to injury or disease. Sculptra restores volume and re-contours areas such as:

  • Sunken cheeks
  • Indentations of the temples
  • Chin
  • Hollow eyes
  • Glabella
  • The hands

Sculptra is made of poly-L-lactic-acid, which is a synthetic material that has been used in medical procedures for years. It works by stimulating your own skin in new collagen production causing thickening of the skin. Skin testing is not required before use and it is FDA-approved.

Sculptra Procedure

Dr. Tarbet will select numerous injection points to be treated, as well as choose the amount of Sculptra to be used for the procedure. Before the injections, the areas of treatment can be numbed with a topical anesthetic cream or local anesthetic to minimize discomfort. The filler is then injected into the deeper layers of the skin. After the procedure patients may be advised to apply ice to minimize swelling and massage the area to help promote distribution.

Richens Eye Center proudly provides patients from St George, UT and Mesquite, NV with Sculptra injections. Call or Text us (435) 986-2020 or fill out our Request An Appointment form.
