Much progress has been made in the last decade in understanding of volume changes in all structural layers of the face. Poly- L-lactic acid (Sculptra) is a versatile injectable that helps to replace collagen that is lost with age. Th is reinforced collagen structure provides a foundation that gradually restores the look of fullness of your shallow to deep facial wrinkles and folds that has been depleted over time. Sculptra is diff erent than traditional wrinkle fi llers, because it gradually and subtly corrects these facial wrinkles. Th is can provide a refi ned, more youthful looking appearance that can last more than two years. Dr. Brodsky will discuss the changes in facial anatomy with age and show how Sculptra can provide a non-surgical approach to a liquid face lift .
