Facelift with beauty injections
You can now achieve the effect of a circular lift with the help of “beauty injections”. This was made possible thanks to the innovative drug Sculptra – a biostimulant based on the use of poly-L-lactic acid. Sculptra consists of a synthetic polymer Poly- L-lactic acid. PLLA has been used as a self-dissolving suture material since the 1960s. Sculptra was approved in 1999 in Europe for facial injections to restore volume and now it is available in more than 40 countries.
Skeptics will ask: how can polymer Poly- L-Lactic Acid tighten the skin? This complex polymer, getting into the deep layers of the skin, starts the process of producing collagen types 1 and 3. What is collagen? This is a substance that is responsible for the density and elasticity of our skin.
Sculptra works by increasing collagen production by your body restoring volume lost due to aging and improving skin appearance by rebuilding and reinforcing the structural foundation of your skin. Typically, 3 treatments are recommended for optimal results done every 6 to 8 weeks. Restored collagen provides volume and support to the aging face erasing age-related changes and creating a more youthful appearance with the effect of a non-surgical facelift. The results of the Sculptra procedures can last up to 2 years and sometimes longer.
The research has shown that the amount of collagen in the skin increases by 66.5 percent 3 months after the introduction of Sculptra preparation into the skin. The skin is noticeably tightened, deep folds and wrinkles disappear, and the lost volume is restored. With the help of Sculptra, the asymmetry of the face is also ideally corrected. The drug thus fully justifies its name! Gradual restoration of volumes can be an advantage for many patients who want to preserve their individuality in the process of external transformation.
Areas for Sculptra Application
Sculptra works by increasing collagen production by your body restoring volume lost due to aging and improving skin appearance.
The Sculptra is not recommended to be injected into the forehead, into the nose area, into the area of the eyelids and the corners of the eyes – “crow’s feet”, into the area above the upper lip. You cannot correct the “red border” of the lips. Traditional hyaluronic acid preparations and neurotoxins are more suitable for these sensitive areas.
It is important to realize that facial aging is not an isolated process that is limited to nasolabial folds or sagging skin but is a collection of general changes in the skeleton, soft tissues and skin structures. Therefore, complex rejuvenation is necessary, which involves not only the correction of nasolabial folds, but also the creation of a more youthful overall appearance. Sculptra is ideal for tightening the neck, décolleté, inner surfaces of the arms and legs, the abdomen, buttocks – the main areas of the body where the sagging of the skin structures is most pronounced.
Prevention of Jowling. Replenishment of lost collagen.
You can do maintenance Sculptra treatments to replenish of lost collagen to maintain your youthful appearance. On average, you lose 1% of collagen every year, doing just 1 vial of Sculptra 1 -2 times a year, can help you replace lost collagen and help you maintain youthfulness in a very natural way and without any puffiness. Moreover, formed collagen tend to attach itself to muscles in the face and thus holds superficial fat pads in your face and prevent them from slipping down with time , and essentially prevents jowls formation. You can start Sculptra in your 30-s for prevention of jowls formation and to halt or minimize collagen loss from your skin. It is recommended to do 1-2 vial every 6 to 12 months 1 vial price is $800+hst; 2 vial price is $1400+hst
