One of the most telling signs of the aging process is the loss of volume within the face. As we advance in our years, the body’s natural collagen production levels start to become sluggish, which means the face begins losing the elasticity and firm structure that’s synonymous with a youthful face. The less collagen your body has, the more likely it is that your facial features will become hollow and sagged.
With this in mind, it becomes obvious that in order to achieve a naturally youthful and revitalized appearance, it’s important to do more than eliminate wrinkles – you have to restore facial volume in the cheeks, around the eyes, and in the lips.
That’s precisely where Sculptra comes into play. This new aesthetic product is highly effective, as it combines the volumizing power of a bio stimulant with the traditional results associated with facial fillers. A single session with Sculptra injections can result in dramatic and significant results, which is why the procedure is becoming increasingly popular at Dr. Sean Doherty’s cosmetic surgery practice in Brookline, Massachusetts (serving the greater metro Boston area).
To see if Sculptra is right for you, take a look at some of the benefits associated with this treatment:
- Sculptra can provide volumizing and firming results that are similar to those produced by traditional facelifts. For patients who may not have a problem with excess sagging skin, Sculptra may be a better anti-aging treatment than an invasive facelift procedure. As a board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Doherty can schedule a consultation with you to determine which procedure will produce your desired results.
- Unlike many anti-aging treatments, Sculptra works with your body’s own collagen to stimulate production. As collagen is a building block for firmer and more youthful skin, Sculptra can help produce immediate results, while stimulating a youthful appearance that can last for up to two years.
- Sculptra can be used in combination with a facelift to help enhance the overall results. For example, Dr. Doherty may use Sculptra to increase facial volumization before the procedure to assist in achieving the patient’s desired appearance.
