It’s not uncommon for people to experience lipoatrophy, which is a process usually associated with age where the fat and volume in our face begins to diminish. This ultimately leaves us looking older and more tired. However, that sunken look can be treated without the need for surgery or more invasive measures. Dr. Evan Ransom is a facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon who offers both surgical and non-surgical treatment options like Sculptra.
Sculptra is a poly-L-lactic acid-based injectable that adds volume to the face. Fillers are also great for treating fine lines and wrinkles. Poly-L-lactic acid is a synthetic version of a chemical created by muscles when you exercise. The solution is great for people prone to allergic reactions, because it is biologically inert.
For more details about Sculptra, contact the San Francisco office of Dr. Ransom.
