I’m in my 30s. Would Sculptra be a good product for me?

Hi I'm 30 and my facial shape is round. I'm thinking about getting filler injected in my chin to give my face a better proportion. A doctor has suggested Sculptra. Does that work to lengthen or make the chin more pronounced? Is it the right product for what I'm trying to achieve?

In general, I almost never start with Sculptra since it IS more permanent.  Why not start with something more temporary and make sure you like the effect first?  A syringe of Restylane or Juvederm would be a solution that lasts 4-9 months in most people.   And at 30, you might even get a longer lasting result or need very little of it.  If you don’t like it, it can be reversed while Sculptra has to wear off which can take up to 2 years.   Link to how to avoid filler mistakes.   Hope this helps.  Dr. I

One of the best investments in your skin is your daily skincare. Why? Because you can prevent many problems with blotchy skin color, lack of glow, texture, some types of acne, and fine lines with good skincare products. You can also correct some of these problems with effective skincare products. Great skincare is often more expensive because quality ingredients are expensive. Some companies spend on research/development which benefits all of us and adds to the cost. Are they worth it? In general - yes! I have handpicked some of what I consider to be the best skin care products, and offer them for sale on SkinTour's shop. This is based on my team and I's testing and research at our clinic. Many of the products are in my own regimen. What could be better than using skin care products a dermatologist uses?!
