Aging is inevitable, though no one wants their age to show on their face. Some of the common signs of age include loss of fat beneath the skin, which results in a sunken, hollow appearance, especially around the eyes. This appearance is caused by gradual the loss of collagen over the years. Collagen is a protein, which helps skin maintain a firm, smooth, and youthful appearance.
Fortunately, the collagen-stimulating, dermal filler Sculptra®, offered in Dr. Eugenie Brunner’s Princeton office, can help! Here are some of the main advantages to Sculptra®.
Benefits of Sculptra to Reduce Wrinkles
- Sculptra® improves your appearance. Sculptra is sometimes known as “the liquid facelift,” as it adds volume and shape to areas of loose, sagging areas on the face. Since the natural production of collagen in skin drastically decreases as one ages, Sculptra® helps stimulate the natural growth of collagen in the skin. This results in skin becoming firmer, stronger, and more youthful-looking. Most commonly, Sculptra® is used to treat volume loss of the cheeks and their resultant wrinkles, and the deep folds between the nose and mouth.
- Sculptra® treatments are quick, yet effective. Sculptra® is injected into the skin with a thin needle, and are completed in a short period of time. Patients can return to their normal activities almost immediately, since there is no downtime required. The results of a Sculptra® injections can last 6 months to 2 years, though many patients also seek additional treatments to maintain their results. Sculptra® injections are usually performed as a series of three monthly injections. Although the final results may take up to several months to appear, the results are subtle and very natural-looking.
- Sculptra® is safe. Sculptra® is FDA-approved and has been used safely and effectively for many years, in countries throughout the world. Sculptra® is considered quite safe, like with any dermal filler there are a few side-effects, though these side-effects are temporary. Some patients may experience some redness, bruising, and swelling following treatment, which can be treated with cold compresses and head elevation.
