it's really not for superficial wrinkles but is a product that adds volume to the skin...Sculptra can be used to fill the temples, the cheeks, the area in front of the ears, and the's also great to replenish the cheekbone area from the inevitable loss that occurs as we age...just find a competent physician...good luck...

Sculpta is the ideal choice for Cheek Hollows without wrinkles

Sculpta does not chase or fill in wrinkles.  Sculptra gives your face volume in areas that need it.  As we age, we tend to lose collagen and our faces appear more sunken and hollow.  Sculptra injections are ideal for giving us back that collagen, especially in the cheek areas.  Sculptra will model itself and after several weeks will produce new collagen in the areas injected.  Please find an experienced dermatologist who understands cosmetic injections for this procedure.

Sculptra is a great volumizer

Scuptra, in my experience at Hankins and Sohn Plastic Surgery Associates in Las Vegas, Nevada, has been an absolutely terrific volumizer of the cheeks..  My previous experience with the product was not as positive - over five years previously and was due to my lack of experience with the product - this is an injector problem- not a product problem.

Sculptra Really Builds Up Hollow Cheeks

Sculptra is a great option to build up hollow cheeks. If the hollowness is severe then you might consider using cheek implants. For mild to moderate hollowness of cheeks, several sessions of Sculptra should work well.

Remember to massage the areas 555, 5 times a day, 5 minutes each time, for 5 days. This helps reduce the chance of nodule (lumps) formation.
