Aging brings on changes like loss of fat in the cheek and temporal areas, making you look tired and older than you feel. It begins in your 20’s and how fast you age is determined by genetics, personal habits, stress, and environmental factors like unprotected exposure to UV rays that accelerate the breakdown of collagen. Collagen acts as the matrix to which elastin, responsible for suppleness and hyaluronic acid, responsible for plumpness attach.
However, collagen production slows down through the years and at 40, upto 20% is lost. Before you know it, your cheeks look deflated and you’ve developed deep nasolabial folds.
Sculptra® Aesthetic ( poly-L-lactic acid) is perfect if you want natural-looking results that erases years through a subtle increase in facial volume. Unlike hyaluronic acid fillers, volume replacement is achieved by stimulating your own collagen from within so you never look overdone. The more collagen your skin has, the more elastin and hyaluronic acid it can hold. Sculptra® Aesthetic , injected more deeply can be layered with hyaluronic acid fillers. Results build up over a course of 3 or 4 injection monthly sessions and can last up to two years.
Sculptra works by stimulating your own body to produce collagen in response to Poly L Lactic Acid, it’s the main component. When Sculptra is injected, results are seen immediately, but subside rather quickly because it is mostly saline. The true results will become more apparent over the following months, and only get better!
