GBK Cosmetic Laser Dermatology Among First to Offer Newly FDA Approved Facial Filler
“Sculptra® Aesthetic” offers new option for longer lasting facial rejuvenation
(San Diego) – Americans looking for alternatives to major plastic surgery to improve their appearance have embraced the array of facial filler produces on the market. The latest advance in treatment has just won approval by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, offering a new and exciting option for consumers.
Sanofi-aventis U.S. announced that the FDA approved Sculptra® Aesthetic (injectable poly-L-lactic acid) for the correction of shallow to deep nasolabial folds, also called "smile lines," contour deficiencies and other facial wrinkles which are treated with the appropriate injection technique in healthy patients. The real breakthrough by Sculptra® Aesthetic is that it offers natural-looking results that can last up to two years, far longer than other fillers.
"I’m excited to be among the first physicians in the U.S. offering Sculptra® Aesthetic to patients,” said Dr. Mitchel Goldman, Medical Director of GBK Cosmetic Laser Dermatology in La Jolla, California. “Nothing ages a person more than those deep smile lines on the face. These occur due to natural facial fat loss as we age, called lipotrophy. Sculptra® is a superb choice for replacing that natural padding in the face with a safe, long-lasting synthetic that produces a natural correction. From my experience, Sculptra® produces excellent results and patients love it,” said Goldman.
If you've just begun looking into facial treatment, the options may seem overwhelming and confusing. There are many brand names with several ingredients, which have different, but perhaps overlapping, uses.
“I hold myself and my practice to a very high standard,” said, Goldman. “I want to be able to offer consumer the latest scientific advancements in treatment, whether it’s new products like Scupltra® or Latisse®, innovations in lasers, or other cutting-edge cosmetic therapy choices,” said Goldman. “There are more ways than ever for people to look and feel their best, safely and effectively.”
“Today, the good news is that we have additional treatment to improve our appearance,” said Goldman. “But no matter how new or exciting a treatment might be, consumers need to remember when choosing any cosmetic procedure to be sure and confer with a, board-certified dermatologist, plastic surgeon or cosmetic surgeon who has experience with these specific procedures. You need an experienced physician to determine which treatments are right for you personally.”
