Unwanted fine lines and wrinkles often occur on the face as we age, specifically after the age of 30 when our body begins to naturally lose collagen stores. Dr. Bertha Baum and her team at Aventura Dermatology in Boca Raton and Hallandale, FL is a dermatologist who understands the need to counteract these changes to maintain a youthful appearance longer. One way to do this is with cosmetic injectables such as Sculptra, which provide results that don’t require invasive surgeries to achieve.
What is Sculptra?
Sculptra is a noninvasive anti-aging treatment that can help you achieve a youthful look. Sculptra injections are made of poly-L-lactic acid, which is a synthetic material that is gradually absorbed by the body. Sculptra works by stimulating the production of collagen where it is injected, therefore helping to improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles on the face.
What can I expect from Sculptra?
While Sculptra can be a great tool for patients experiencing mild to moderate signs of aging, it is important that patients have a good understanding as to what Sculptra can and cannot achieve. Sculptra is a wonderful alternative to traditional plastic surgeries such as facelifts which can also reduce the appearance of wrinkles and folds on the skin. However, these surgical interventions can result in several complications associated with surgeries, including infection and scarring. Sculptra can provide gradual changes in the appearance of the face over the course of several months as treatments are performed. Patients can then maintain the results and slow the signs of aging afterwards with routine injections performed once or twice a year. Stimulating collagen is a great way to combat the changes that can occur with age.
