Sculptra Filler

How does Sculptra Work?

Sculptra Aesthetic is a longer lasting filler that helps replace the natural collagen of the skin naturally, and gradually (read: it won’t give you away!). Sculptra can correct and restore the signs of facial fat loss by replacing lost volume.

Careful attention will be paid to your skin type and any additional skin conditions you may have during your consultation with Dr. Tanya Kormeili.  All filler treatments involving Sculptra should be designed individually for you based on a careful clinical exam and your desired values. Dr. Tanya Kormeili specializes in tailoring the skin treatments to the bone structure and property anatomy of the patient, as well as ethnic considerations of what is considered natural for the ethnic features of the patient.

Please feel free to contact Dr. Tanya Kormeili’s Santa Monica office. We serve patients in Santa Monica, Brentwood, Malibu, Culver City, Los Angeles, Beverly Hills, & surrounding areas in California. If you are one of our out of town guests, please inform our office staff to help make proper arrangements for you.
