Thanks to today’s plethora of effective and safe dermal fillers, facial contouring with injectables is able to create stunning, sustainable results that compare to those of plastic surgery procedures. Our Sculptra in San Diego, approved by the FDA in 2009, is among the most popular methods of correcting unwanted wrinkles, folds, and creases that plague the face as it matures. Sculptra can also reduce facial scarring and restore facial symmetry.

What is the Big Deal About Collagen?

When browsing plastic surgery websites and brochures, one hears frequently about collagen, especially in regards to non-surgical facial rejuvenation. Collagen is a protein found naturally in the human body. It allows moisture to bind to the skin, and plumps the skin for a youthful, glowing look that radiates beauty.

As the body ages, it tends to lose its store of collagen, creating a hollow, tired aesthetic that is not as pleasing. Therefore, a variety of dermal fillers, including Sculptra in San Diego, are formulated to help replace this lost collagen, thus maximizing the skin’s suppleness and resilience once more.

What is Sculptra Made of?

Sculptra’s main ingredient is poly-L-lactic acid (PLA), a compound that has previously been employed as a component of dissolvable stitches and bone plates. PLA comes from lactic acid, a substance that occurs naturally in the body and works to boost the metabolism of cellular debris.

Francine M.

"I had a vertical restore at age 65 with Dr Amir Karam. It has been a little over a year and I am delighted with the results. Some of my friends have not even noticed - I just look rested. Dr Karam will provide you with all the information and supplements that you need to make the procedure and the recovery time as comfortable as possible. I usually bruise very easily but with the supplements that were given to me prior to my procedure and afterwards, my bruises were gone within a week."

"I highly recommend Dr. Karam and would go back to him for anything I might want done in the future. I totally trust his approach and recommendations. You won't be disappointed!"

"I'm one month out from a Vertical Restore with Dr Karam. Dr Karam is an incredibly talented Surgeon. I can barely see my scars already. I also did a laser peel, within 8 days I was wearing makeup and admiring my new jawline and neck. I'm 65 this month and so happy I chose him. He is the best there is. His staff are fun, caring and kind. They made my entire experience so easy. I would not hesitate or even think about going anywhere else. Check out his Instagram account. He does all his content himself. Extremely informative, with many before and after photos. I decided on Dr Karam after researching his Instagram and had made my decision before we had even met."

Janice S.

"Dr Karam is a great surgeon, a true artist and a wonderful human being. He has done 2 procedures on me over the last 3 years. Both with excellent results. His fat transfer and his lip lift technique are extraordinary. I wouldn't think of going to anyone else and I would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for the best."
