Juvederm Voluma XC
Juvederm Voluma addresses the natural loss of volume in the midface that is caused by collagen depletion over time. The thicker formula fills in the cheek hollows and loss of fullness in the temple, and lack of chin projection, and weak jawline to restore a youthful facial profile. Most patients enjoy their enhanced appearance for up to two years.
Sculptra is an injectable made from poly-L-lactic acid that can help replace lost collagen. This helps to provide a more natural, smoother appearance to the face without adding the extra volume and/or bulk of traditional fillers.
Since collagen is a natural substance that keeps skin soft and smooth, this is a great idea for patients who are a llittle scared of traditional fillers. Sculptra mimics natural collagen in the body. Sculptra, once injected under the skin of the face, will begin to restore volume and shape to areas that have been naturally depleted of collagen over time. Think of Sculptra as a “collagen fertilizer.”
When Will I See The Results Of My Sculptra Treatment?
Sculptra offers gradual results that slowly soften folds and wrinkles over several weeks. Most people see a hydration effect to their skin almost immediately, while the other benefits can take several weeks. Because the sessions are spread out, and because Sculptra’s full effects progress over time, your face will seem to naturally yield a more youthful and refined appearance.
How Many Sculptra Treatments Will I Need?
Sculptra is sold by the vial, and the number of vials you need depends on the areas being treated and the amount of volume loss there. Typically most patient will do one treatment and then repeat again in 12-weeks. After that second treatment, more can be added anytime, but is usually not needed until about a year later for maintenance.
How Long Does Sculptra Austin Last?
Results have shown to last up to 2 years in some patients, but results will vary from person to person. You deplete the new collagen just like you do your existing collagen, so it is all based on how quickly you are aging.
Sculptra Aesthetic has proven to be highly effective for a number of problems, and is commonly used for:
- Marionette lines – The lines framing the mouth
- Nasolabial folds – Smile lines
- Chin wrinkles
- Filling in cellulite dimples
- Augmenting the buttocks
Who Is Not A Candidate For Sculptra Injections?
Patients with a history of allergic reactions, keloid formations, hypertrophic scarring, and patients with active skin infections or inflammation should avoid using Sculptra. Sculptra is great for a number of areas on the face, but use around the eyes is not recommended.
What can I expect after injections?
There is little to no risk of an allergic reaction. After 24 hours, you should be able to resume your normal activities. Side effects are rare and are typically limited to the injection sites and will usually subside in a few days.
Side effects are moderate and generally last 2 to 4 weeks. Common side effects include temporary reactions at the treatment site such as tenderness, swelling, firmness, lumps/bumps, bruising, pain, redness, discoloration, and itching.

Will the results look natural?
Dr. Sholar takes great care to give each patient unique and thorough treatment based on your face shape, desired outcome, and deep understanding of the Juvéderm formulas. Our artistic eye and years of experience lead to beautiful, natural results that provide just the right amount of volume where you need it most.
At Skin Science Soul, our product of choice for jawline contouring most often is Radiesse. Radiesse differs from hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers. While it does provide volume like an HA filler, it also stimulates collagen production. Radiesse contains calcium hydroxylapitate (CaHA), which is a collagen stimulator.
As you may know, any treatment involving the stimulation of collagen can take several weeks to months to show results. For that reason, the CaHA in Radiesse is suspended in a gel carrier. The gel carrier provides instant volume and results and gives the CaHA time to produce your body’s own collagen. As the gel carrier is slowly reabsorbed over the next few months, your body is replacing that volume with its own collagen for a beautiful, natural result. This makes Radiesse an ideal product for the jawline as it produces a crisp, sharp result.
