“There’s no way I’m going down without a fight! So if there’s a way to look younger and better, without surgery, then I’m going to try it. I want to prevent the tell-tale signs of aging that are already beginning to show. ”
The above conversation is something I hear frequently from patients. From as early as age 30, women begin to understand their youthful look really does have an expiration date.
And that’s why I love telling them about Sculptra®. It’s like a breath of fresh air. Ever since Sanofi Aventis began airing commercials informing the public about their anti aging product, more and more people have begun asking for it. It’s not a new product, as I’ve been injecting Sculptra® since it first came out in 2004. I’ve literally performed thousands of treatments during that time. It’s just that now, people are actually asking for the collagen filler by name.
So for those of you who haven’t seen the commercials, you’re probably wondering what all the ballyhoo is about. First, let me say what it is not. It is not like Restylane® or Juvederm® because it is not a hyaluronic acid. Sculptra® actually spurs the development of new collagen to the decreased areas of your face. Though it will not give you the immediate results you see with those other two products, which are great in their own right, Sculptra will have a much longer effect once it takes effect.
Sculptra® has lactic acid particles that spur on the growth of healthy, new strong collagen in your skin. The result not only tightens your existing skin, but actually prods your skin into making more collagen. And the new collagen is even healthier than what you lost, because its void of the free radicals that everyday living has subjected our skin to. All those areas that are sinking and making you appear saggy and wrinkled can be replaced with a softer, better, fuller collagen underneath your skin. This new growth generally takes 3 to 4 weeks to see the resulting changes. But the best part is how long it lasts- The effects can last for two years or more!
Just take a look at the before and after pictures and determine for yourself how a little “new” collagen could improve the youthful appearance you’ve been losing. Why wait- you can begin to battle aging and become beautiful right now.
