Aged skin is the result of a depleted supply of collagen, which results in lined and wrinkled skin with a loss of volume. Sculptra is comprised of poly-L-lactic acid, a biocompatible, synthetic material, which is safely absorbed into the skin for superior results. Plano, TX plastic surgeon Dr. Kristen Ann Aliano Messina and facial surgeon Dr. Vu Ho inject Sculptra to smooth moderate to severe lines and wrinkles around the mouth, between the nose and mouth (nasolabial folds), and in the chin. Additionally, Sculptra can be used to perform a buttock augmentation. Best of all, due to its makeup, Sculptra can last up to two years for long-term results as compared to other fillers on the market.
"Dr. Ho is an Artist!! - Frisco, TX - !I am so pleased that I made the decision to go to Beautiful Faces. When I first got to Dr. Ho, I was completely at a loss as to what to do to deal with my ageing skin. I looked so incredibly tired. When I visited with Dr. Ho about options for what could be done, he suggested we go slow with the treatments. Over the past 4 months, I have had 3 Sculptra treatments, along with Restylane Silk and Dysport to fill some vertical lines between my brows and also nasolabial lines. I could not be more pleased. The changes that have come about with the Sculptra over the span of the 3 treatments have just been amazing. I no longer look tired and my self-confidence has had a huge boost. Dr. Ho and his staff have been so kind and supportive through this process. I so wish I had done this sooner, but I am extremely pleased with the wonderful results As far as I am concerned, Dr. Ho is an artist!"- K. / RealSelf / Feb 26, 2016
"Sculptra and Dysport with Dr. Vu Ho of Plano - Plano, TX - Dr. Ho injected my Sculptra and I absolutely love it! He explained how it stimulates collagen and that I would need one treatment per decade of life, which would mean about 4-5. I could really see the results the best after the 2nd treatment, but it got even better after the third one! He is very down-to-earth, personable, and has a calmness that makes me comfortable and trust him with anything he does with my face. He is definitely a perfectionist and wants it just right! I will continue to go to Dr. Ho for all my facial work! Additionally, his entire team is so friendly and awesome!"- J. / RealSelf / Sep 02, 2016

"The Fountain of Youth in a vial - I was thrilled when I learned Dr. Ho offered Sculptra. There's some discomfort as with any injectable filler. The post treatment massage is a minor inconvenience. BUT the result is a truly natural, more youthful look. The process is gradual so no one knows your secret. Sculptra is the Fountain of Youth in a vial."- K. / RealSelf / Jan 10, 2017
"My experience working with Dr. Ho and using the Sculptra product has been AMAZING! - From an initial consultation with Dr. Ho several years back, where I shared my goal to find a cosmetic surgeon who would assist me in facing the aging process as naturally as possible, with recommended products and services, I have constantly been amazed at the results he as surgeon/provider has provided me. Most recently, I received exceptional results from Dr. Ho's administration of the Sculptra product (three injection sessions, each four weeks apart). It has been well over two years now since the initial session. My facial folds, wrinkles and gaunt look, overall gradually completely diminished. I was absolutely delighted with the results! Dr. Ho is masterful at his craft! His support staff too, is amazing! At every visit you are made to feel welcome, appreciated and valued as a patient. I have recently booked my upcoming maintenance appointment. Sculptra is worth the time and dollars investment for lasting "natural looking" results, minimal bruising and no downtime. I would highly recommend anyone interested in the Sculptra product to schedule a consultation with Dr. Ho."- A. / RealSelf / Jan 16, 2017

What to Expect
Sculptra is an outpatient procedure that’s performed in the office. Before the treatment begins, the medical professional will determine the appropriate dosage, the face or other body part will be properly cleaned, and the injection sites will be marked. A numbing agent can be used prior to Sculptra to alleviate any discomfort. With a thin syringe, Sculptra will be injected beneath the skin. The skin will be massage gently to make sure the filler is distributed evenly throughout the treatment area. Sculptra will be administered layer by layer until the desired look is achieved. Sculptra treatment can take up to an hour.
Since Sculptra requires extra care and precision, patients may have to return after the initial procedure to receive additional treatment. This is to achieve full results for the best possible look.
Immediately after treatment, patients should expect to see some positive results. Mild redness, bruising, and swelling can result after treatment, but they will resolve in the first week after treatment. Patients must refrain from exercise and applying pressure to the face for about 24 hours after Sculptra to the face. Patients should follow all of the doctor’s aftercare instructions. With Sculptra, patients can expect beautiful results for up to two years after treatment. Buttock augmentation typically requires multiple rounds of treatments.
