Get ahead of facial aging
As a culture, we are living longer and healthier: aging is a welcome honor many of us find pleasurable. For some, though, age and the elements take a toll on our appearance-facial wrinkles, fine lines, sagging skin all contribute to looking older than we want.
Collagen, that wondrous building-block protein that keeps our skin tight and taut, stops production by our mid-20s. Yearly, we lose roughly 1% of collagen so by the age of 50, we have lost 20-40%. Without collagen, the skin loosens making us appear tired and fine lines begin to appear.
Sculptra Aesthetic is an injectable poly-L lactic acid that stimulates the collagen production process and increases facial volume and skin thickness. This improves the overall appearance of the face by decreasing wrinkles, fine lines and sagging skin. Sculptra Aesthetic is typically injected over a few sessions spanning about 4 months, based on individual need.
"The results are very natural looking and last two years or more. Sculptra Aesthetic is an excellent choice for people who want to address the underlying cause of facial aging," said Dr. Abraham. "It's different than any other filler on the market because it's interacting with your skin's chemistry to strengthen from the inside out."
