As we age we lose volume in our faces!
The good news is that lost volume can easily be replaced with dermal fillers! This popular procedure can restore the contours and shape your face had when you were younger. Fillers, such as Juvederm Voluma, can also be used to create volume where it has never existed. A skilled injector is able to place the correct consistency and amount of filler to precisely replace or create volume to the areas of the face that can benefit. Results are instant and natural in appearance!
The 8 Point Liquid Face Lift
In the olden days (five years ago) filler was used to chase lines and fill in creases such as the nasolabial folds. More recently a more global approach has been used to restore cheek contours and lost volume in other areas of the face. With precise injection points, low injection volume, and specific injection techniques (some with a needle, some with a micro-cannula, some with a linear or fanning technique) our experienced medical professionals deliver safe and predictable results in eight specific areas. Not everyone needs all eight areas of the 8 point facelift. Which areas you will benefit from will be discussed at the time of your consultation or treatment.

What is Sculptra?
The primary ingredient in Sculptra® is polylactic acid, a synthetic substance replicating a natural substance that is created by muscles when a person exercises. Polylactic acid has seen many medical uses over the last two decades. Unlike other dermal fillers, which can last months, Sculptra® treatment can last up to two years. Sculptra® injections look very natural due to its natural collagen building activity, and lasts for about 2-3 years.
Benefits of Sculptra® Treatment
Because Sculptra® prompts the body to produce its own collagen, natural restoration of facial volume can be obtained. This ability to enhance collagen production also means that treatments are very long-lasting, up to two years. After results have subsided, the ingredients in Sculptra® are safely reabsorbed in the body.
What areas does Sculptra treat?
- Deep folds between the nose and mouth (nasal folds)
- Lines framing the mouth (marionette lines)
- Chin wrinkles and jawline
- Cheeks and cheekbones
How many treatments are required?
On average, a series of three treatment sessions over the course of a few months may be needed. The number of injections at each session will vary, depending on the degree of correction needed and the treatment plan determined by you and your specialist.
How soon will I see results?
Sculptra is designed to give you noticeable results that emerge gradually and can last more than two years. Don’t be disappointed if you don’t see immediate results. A few days after treatment, you may look as you did before treatment. This is normal and temporary. The Sculptra regimen delivers its full effects with an average of three treatment sessions over the course of a few months.
