Introducing Sculptra® Aesthetic!
Norfolk Plastic Surgery is excited to announce that we now offer Sculptra® Aesthetic – the first facial injectable that gives you subtle yet noticeable results over time and a result that can last up to two years!
Sculptra® is a new type of facial injectable made from poly-L-lactic acid, which is a biocompatible (won’t harm your body), biodegradable synthetic material that has been used in dissolvable stitches and medical implants for many years.
Sculptra® Aesthetic is FDA approved and works to correct shallow to deep facial wrinkles and folds by replacing the collagen lost as a result of the natural facial aging process.
Call our office today to arrange a consultation for more information on this exciting new product!
