Volume loss occurs naturally during the aging process, particularly in the mid-face as the cheeks become flat and hollow. Board-certified dermatologist and expert injector Dr. Reuel Aspacio offers Sculptra, a poly-L-lactic acid-based dermal filler that allows for deeper and longer-lasting volume replacement in the cheeks. In addition to improving the contour of the cheeks, Sculptra can decrease the appearance of shallow to deep lines and wrinkles. This does include the nasolabial folds (also known as the smile or laugh lines) that run from the sides of the nose to the corners of the mouth. Sculptra also works wonders on acne scars (from small flaws to areas marked by pitting). With its unique formula approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Sculptra promotes the natural production of collagen in your body, so even if you stop treatments, your skin will still be healthier compared to before Sculptra injections.

"35 Years Old - Las Vegas, NV - When it comes to my face, I could not put myself in random hands. It has to be a true professional and I found one in Dr Aspasio. Facial fillers can easily make you look plastic and artificial. I always feel bad for those duck-face girls, and wonder what doctor would agree to do that. At 35, I need to get my fillers quite regularly. It's usually Juvederm but I also use Restilene and Sculptra...."- C. / RealSelf / Nov 02, 2015
"I came across Summerlin Dermatology when I was researching Sculptra. I decide to go in for a consult, and they were more than helpful with all of my questions and concerns. I ended up having them do my Dysport and Juvederm injections; and since them I have been hooked. I used to go elsewhere for my services but have since decided I prefer coming here...for multiple reasons: 1. Cost: Very fair pricing I can easily wrap my head around! 2. Product sustainability: I swear their products last so much longer on me than any other place I have used! 3. Variety: There are a number of options available to meet your needs for your personal beauty standards. 4. Staff: This is probably one of the main reasons I have remained interested in Summerlin Dermatology. Trish and Dr. Aspacio are warm and welcoming as soon as you meet them. Trish is probably one of the most fun people to banter with, she has a great sense of humor, even my husband loves the staff here! I definitely recommend this place, especially for those who like honestly and realistic expectations about their needs! They got your back! 100%"- S.T. / Yelp / Feb 25, 2020
"I was referred by a friend to Summerlin Dermatology over three years ago. Between Dr.Aspacio's candid feedback and sharp work, Trish's connection to all her patients, attention to detail and honesty. The experience starts with the front office staff and how super kind they are to their patients. They work fast, efficient and always professional. They go that extra mile to make me feel comfortable and welcome each time I see them. I can speak to the following services: microdermabrasion, Sculptra, Radiesse, and Dysport. All done with expertise! I will not go anywhere else for my dermatology needs!"- A.L. / Yelp / Feb 25, 2020
Sculptra is best for patients who want to add volume in their cheeks without surgery. Some candidates may have naturally flat cheeks, while others experience age-related volume loss. Sculptra can also be used to fill shallow to deep facial lines and wrinkles, like marionette lines, nasolabial folds, and chin wrinkles. Since Sculptra helps to increase the body's natural production of collagen, many patients will have a visible improvement in the overall health and appearance of their skin.
After your consultation to create your personal treatment plan, you will receive your Sculptra injections in one of our private procedure rooms. The injector may apply a numbing cream or local anesthetic before cleansing and marking the injection sites. Once you are ready, the filler will be injected into the deeper layers of the skin at the selected areas. For best results, Dr. Aspacio recommends a series of four Sculptra injections, each scheduled at Summerlin Dermatology about four to six weeks apart.
What to Expect
After your Sculptra treatment, you may have mild to moderate redness, swelling, tenderness, or bruising at the injection site that should subside naturally in a few days. You need to massage the treated areas five minutes, five times a day for five days. For faster healing, you can apply cold packs to the injection sites. You should avoid UV exposure as much as possible after your treatment and use sun protection. When performed as a series of injections over the course of 3 – 4 months, results can last up to two years.
