I wanted a more youthful look. I thought I needed juvederm and I thought that I needed laser resurfacing, but it turned out that what I needed was volume in my face! Even the doctor was impressed on how quickly my skin responded as I am over 60. I went over a period of three months so that the change was gradual. It's very natural looking. Even though there are a lot of needles, they are tiny... more
Loved the idea that that Sculptra provided a gradual improvement and that it lasted 2 years. My plastic surgeon (Harvard University Board Certified) is very conservative so I did not do a thorough research.

Must list price by vial. I have had 2 sessions. 2 vials per session. so $500 per vial. Supposed to go one more time may be 1 or 2 more vials. I have never had a treatment like this before.

Still a bit... more
