At his plastic surgery center in Algonquin, Illinois, board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gunnar Thors uses Sculptra® to smooth out, fill in and decrease the appearance of wrinkles. Sculptra ® can also fill in and reduce the depth of the creases which can appear between the sides of the nose and the mouth as well as fill in acne scars. Sculptra ® can also be a very effective filler if you have any other type of facial scarring which you wish to improve.

Dr. Thors also uses Sculptra® to correct lost skin volume, providing an increase in skin thickness which helps to create a more natural facial appearance. Sculptra® is primarily intended for restoration and/ or correction of the signs of facial fat loss (lipoatrophy), but has been used for various cosmetic applications.

There are no skin tests needed prior to first use of Sculptra ®. An injection and/or application of a numbing medication are sometimes used to help with any discomfort you may feel.

During your consultation with Dr. Thors he will discuss with you the appropriate number of treatment sessions you will need. Anywhere from 1-4 or more treatments may be recommended. An assessment at the next visit will determine whether another treatment is beneficial or desired. Dr. Thors will also explain to you the amount of Sculptra ® you will need during each treatment. Treatments are usually scheduled at least 4 weeks apart for optimal result. Being board certified means that Dr. Thors has the experience and the training to help you choose the treatment that will be most effective for you. It is Dr. Thors’s goal to build trust and rapport with each patient so that you can work together to get the results you want to achieve.
