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 facial surgeon Dr. Vu Ho injects 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.
"No Regrets Face Lift - I initially saw Dr. Ho on a local morning news show and kept his name in my memory bank for a time when I might consider a facial procedure. But two years later, when I turned 50, I knew it was time to have some maintenance. I met with Dr. Ho initially for a Sculptra procedure- something to give me a refreshed look. But after our consultation, I knew filler was temporary and although more..."- R. / RealSelf / Jul 30, 2018
"A Dr Worth His Weight in Gold. - Dr Vu Ho is terrific. I came to see him after I had undesirable results with two vials of Sculptra. Dr Vu Ho used kenalog on my cheeks which helped shrink them and made my face look less puffy. Dr Vu Ho is caring and attentive, an when I came back for a follow up appointment went out of his way to help me and assist me. I would highly recommend this Dr to everybody."- M. / RealSelf / Sep 10, 2018
"Awesome Results - I signed up for sculptra treatments 1 year before my daughters wedding. I was amazed at the results! Dr. Ho guided me through when to start them and how often to have them in order to get the best results. My face was getting hollow as I got older (I was 61 when I started) and by the time the wedding came around, I looked so much better and was very confident and happy! I have also had..."- G. / RealSelf / Sep 04, 2018

"Sculptra for Chin Enhancement - So glad I had this procedure done. I am very satisfied with the results and these photos are only two vials in. I had a third and final recently. Dr. Ho did a fantastic job. He is a master injector! I had tried Restylane in the past. However with my high metabolism it would not last long. Sculptra will last at least two years. Comparing the two, Sculptra gives me a more natural look than Restylane. If you live the in the North Dallas area I highly recommend checking out Dr. Ho's practice Beyond Beautiful. The staff is exceptional. Thank you Dr. Ho, Tami, Liz, Amber and Sarah for all that you do!"- J. / RealSelf / Mar 17, 2020

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.
