Sculptra in La Jolla, CA
Shumway Cosmetic Surgery, accredited by the Joint Commission and awarded the Gold Seal of Approval which reflects our commitment to excellence and quality patient care, offers Sculptra® treatments to local residents requiring skin skin rejuvenation.
You follow a proper diet, exercise regularly, and take really great care of your skin. But you still feel less than satisfied with how you look. Age has left a mark that you simply cannot ignore, and over-the-counter treatments do very little to help you look as beautiful as you feel.
What Is Sculptra®?
The reason you have lines and wrinkles is that your body has little collagen to provide the support that your skin needs to be smooth, hydrated, and gorgeous. Sculptra® is an injectable filler that works by replenishing the collagen in your skin, and after a few quick treatments, you see the results!
Is Sculptra® a Good Choice for Me?
Dr. Shumway typically recommends Sculptra® to patients between the ages of 30 to 65 to reduce the lines around your mouth and nose. Sculptra® may also be recommended for patients who would benefit from added volume in their cheeks. Because each dermal filler works on a specific part of your face, a consultation at our La Jolla office with Dr. Shumway is the best way to find out if Sculptra® is right for you.
