Are you looking for sublte results over time? Are you afraid that your friends might notice that you have had facial plastic surgery? Do you want to refreshen your appearance by undergoing a procedure that provides natural looking results with no downtime required? If so, as a Charlotte facial plastic surgeon, I believe Sculptra, poly-L-lactic acid, might be the treatment for you! Sculptra visibly reduces your age over time.
Sculptra requires 1-3 treatments over the course of a few months. These injections of poly-L-lactic acid provide you with natural looking results by stimulating your body’s natural ability to produce collagen. Collagen is the main structural protein found in our connective tissue, helping give tissues like our muscles and skin their ability to hold shape and maintain integrity. Collagen is also responsible for the firm, almost plump look of healthy, youthful skin. As age encroaches, collagen seems to jump ship, abandoning the face and leading to wrinkles and thinner skin. Popular brands and many marketing tactics promote topical creams for being able to replace collagen or help firm skin; however, that is false. Collagen production happens deep within the skin’s many layers. In order to boost collagen levels to see reults, you must get further than skin deep. Sculptra helps correct youthful facial shape and deep facial wrinkles and folds that appear with aging by replacing lost collagen. The main ingredient Sulptra is a biocompatible, biodegradable synthetic material that has been used by physicians for decades.
I offer Sculptra in my Charlotte office and inject the product deep and directly into the fat pockets of the face that has lost volume. Restoring volume in the exact location where it was lost results in natural results. Sculptra helps the body restore lost collagen gradually, lifting and plumping the skin from the bottom to the surface. Your face regains its fullness and loses its wrinkles over time, with the results lasting up to two years (which is longer than the various other fillers).
