Address volume loss in the face with Sculptra injections
Sculptra is an injectable dermal filler made of poly-L-lactic acid. It works to address shallow, moderate, and deep facial wrinkles and folds and other signs of aging such as lost volume. Injections of Sculptra can be used on the face, neck, hands, and any other area that has lost collagen due to aging or sun damage.

Absolutely! Dr. Barry Ginsburg may suggest combining cosmetic injectables to achieve the best results. Many issues can be treated with various injections, allowing patients to achieve a “liquid facelift.”
