It is a known fact that collagen is a key structural component that helps keep our skin firm and youthful. As we age, our bodies’ collagen production decreases, resulting in loss of volume and skin elasticity. We begin to notice the formation of smile lines, jowls, and circles under our eyes. There are several temporary solutions available for improving the appearance of these areas; such as a variation of fillers.
While a filler is a great quick fix in camouflaging the lines and wrinkles, it addresses the end results, NOT the cause of the problem. At this point, you may be wondering what you can do to reverse the progression of the aging process? The answer is Sculptra Aesthetics.
As mentioned earlier, the reason for the sagging skin is loss of volume in the mid-face. Thus, the only way to rejuvenate our face is by returning its volume to the areas where it has been lost.
Often mistaken for a filler, Sculptra is actually a collagen stimulant that works within the deep dermis to stimulate your own body’s production of collagen. Sculptra works in progression with your body’s response to restore the collagen over time – often 2 to 6 months to see full desired results. Since Sculptra is a unique product on the aesthetics market, it requires a knowledgeable surgeon with a thorough understanding of facial anatomy to administer the stimulant.
The treatment is normally done once per month, for a period of 3 months. How much of the product you will require is determined per individual, considering the age and overall loss of volume. Dr. Irene Gladstein has been injecting Sculptra since 2006 – becoming one of the Top 4 Sculptra providers in New York.
