Collagen Stimulation Using Sculptra Aesthetic

July 9, 2014  |   Uncategorized

Men and women today are becoming increasingly concerned about the effects of aging, especially on the face, and how this impacts their overall appearance. Unfortunately, collagen production begins to decrease around the age of 30, resulting in the loss of elasticity and an increase in fine lines, wrinkles, and skin folds. However, there are several products available today that can help correct the issues associated with collagen loss. Sculptra Aesthetic is one such product. Information associated with Sculptra Aesthetic is as follows:

  • What is Sculptra Aesthetic? Sculptra Aesthetic is a facial injectable that continues to provide results over an extended period of time. The injectable is made of poly-L-lactic acid, a known anti-aging breakthrough that is easily accepted by and absorbed into the body.
  • How does Sculptra Aesthetic work? This facial injectable works by stimulating the growth of collagen. Sculptra Aesthetic begins to rebuild a solid foundation of collagen Nar de er tilstede betyr det at vi far alle de norske klassiske spilleautomatene, suverene video blackjack online og en rekke andre casinospill. deep within the dermis layer. As the collagen begins to build and strengthen, facial folds and wrinkles start to fill and an overall smoother appearance results.
  • In what areas of the face is Sculptra Aesthetic used? The nasolabial folds, the lines forming around the mouth, and any wrinkles found in the chin can benefit from the use of Sculptra Aesthetic. However, Sculptra Aesthetic is not to be used in the forehead, lips, or eye area, as the safety for use in these areas has not yet been studied and verified.
  • How many treatments will I need? The average patient requires approximately three Sculptra Aesthetic injectables over the course of a few months. The resulting effect will last for roughly two years, at which time the patient may consider further Sculptra Aesthetic treatment.
