Beautiful, Subtle, Gradual Rejuvenating Results for Bryn Mawr, Newtown Square, Main Line, and Beyond
Certain areas of the face lose volume as time passes, leading to an aged appearance marked by hollows, loss of definition, and deflation. Sculptra® for Bryn Mawr, Newtown Square, and Philadelphia-area patients is ideal for addressing these changes. This bio stimulatory filler increases collagen production for subtle results that develop gradually to create a naturally youthful appearance.
The Cirillo Cosmetic Dermatology Spa team works with a range of injectable options for women and men dealing with collagen loss due to natural aging and sun exposure. Learn more about what makes Sculptra® unique.
How Does Sculptra® Work?
Most fillers have a hyaluronic acid base, using the naturally occurring sugar molecule to create a gel that easily binds to water and adds volume that is visible immediately after injection. Hyaluronic acid fillers last approximately one year, as they are gradually broken down by the enzyme hyaluronidase present in the skin.
Sculptra® is different. It is not a hyaluronic acid-based filler, but is a poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) collagen stimulator. It stimulates fibroblasts, the collagen "factories" in our skin, to increase production of collagen, leading to a restored youthful appearance. Collagen is a very important component of the skin as it gives structure to key features on the face and creates a lattice for holding the hyaluronic acid molecules vital to healthy skin hydration.
Building collagen takes time, so the results from Sculptra® treatments are gradual. Treatment with Sculptra® requires a "patient" patient. Most patients looking to restore volume to their face require three to four treatment sessions every 8 to 12 weeks. Sculptra®'s correction lasts from 1 1/2 to 3 years.

What Can Sculptra® Treat?
Sculptra® is an ideal filler for reinflation of an aged, volume-depleted face. It is commonly used for adding volume to fill in hollowed "skeletal" temples, to plump and lift flattened cheeks, and to restore definition to a sagging, jowly jawline. Sculptra® can also fill in folds and lines that range from shallow to deep, including nasolabial folds (smile lines), mouth-framing marionette lines, and chin wrinkles.

Our injectors at Cirillo Cosmetic Dermatology Spa are experienced and committed to making the Sculptra® experience as safe and as comfortable as possible. Each session lasts approximately 30 to 45 minutes, depending upon which area or areas are being treated.
What Other Fillers Are Available?
In addition to Sculptra®, patients at Cirillo Cosmetic Dermatology Spa can benefit from the Juvederm® (including Voluma®) and Restylane® family of fillers. Multiple fillers can also be combined with each other—as well as with other injectables, such as forehead-wrinkle-relaxing BOTOX®— for a "liquid facelift" that rejuvenates the skin and facial contours without surgery.
