The aging process starts in most people when they hit their early thirties. This is when they will first start to develop the wrinkles, sagging skin and loss of facial volume that are the telltale markers of the aging process. However, since the aging process starts in a very gradual way, most people will not notice the changes in their appearance until they are in their mid-thirties or early forties. When they do notice the changes, it can be very bothersome to them.
Most people in their forties or fifties are not striving to look like they did when they were 20. They realize that it’s not realistic. They are comfortable with how they look, but they just want to look like a slightly younger version of themselves.
One option that is available for facial rejuvenation includes invasive facelift surgery. However, many people are leery of taking that major step to improve their appearance. The truth is that a lot of men and women in their fifties don’t need a facelift to look younger. All they need is a little help restoring facial volume and smoothing out some of the wrinkles that have developed. This can be easily accomplished using Sculptra®.
Sculptra® is a dermal filler that has been approved by the FDA to diminish the appearance of facial wrinkles, lines and facial folds. It has proven itself to be a long-lasting treatment that provides results that can last for years.
Sculptra® is designed to provide a twofold volume increasing effect. On the one hand, as soon as the dermal filler is injected underneath the skin, a patient’s face immediately looks fuller. It has more volume and looks younger. The second effect is seen over the months following the procedure. The Sculptra® gel includes poly-L-lactic acid. This substance is designed to encourage the face to produce collagen. This, in turn, adds volume to your face for the long-term.
Patients who use Sculptra® are very happy with the results. When they look at themselves in the mirror, they don’t see a 20-year-old version of themselves. And that’s not what most people want. When they look at themselves in the mirror, what they do see is a face that looks refreshed. It is a face that looks younger, but it does not look worked on.
Looking young helps a person to feel young. It gives a person the confidence they need to enjoy life. It helps them be the best version of themselves possible.
