Many people in Beverly Hills lose facial fat as they grow older, and that can result in a worn and aged appearance. While the thought of losing fat might seem appealing, that tissue is what keeps your skin smooth and toned. Once the fat is gone, you might begin to develop a variety of unwanted blemishes including sunken cheeks, hollow eyes, and nasolabial folds. Sculptra® injections can help replace the lost volume and trigger the body’s production of collagen. Within just hours of your injections, your face will look firmer and more youthful.
A Look at Age-Related Blemishes
Over time, practically everyone is going to experience a biological phenomenon known as lipoatrophy. This biological process forces your body to metabolize unnecessary fat in areas such as the face. Protecting your skin from sun damage and environmental toxins will delay these issues, but you won’t be able to avoid lipoatrophy forever. Your body will also slowly exhaust its store of collagen, and that will further amplify age-related blemishes like lines, wrinkles, and folds.
The Science Behind Sculptra®
The primary ingredient inside Sculptra® injections is a powerful substance known as poly-L-lactic acid. This acid is referred to as biocompatible because it can’t damage living tissue, and that is why very few patients experience any unwanted side effects. Immediately after being injected, Sculptra® will begin to erase blemishes by adding volume to the face. As time goes on, the active ingredients in the injections are replaced with the patient’s natural collagen. By stimulating the production of this key protein, your results will continue to improve for a long time.
The Benefits of Sculptra® Injections
Sculptra® is often referred to as the “liquid facelift” because it eradicates blemishes and takes years off a patient’s appearance with little hassle on the part of the client. For many people in Beverly Hills, the results last for well over 18 months. In fact, many people enjoy results lasting for up to two years! And you can schedule follow-up appointments as soon as the blemishes become visible once again. Unlike traditional facelifts, you won’t have to worry about a lengthy recovery after your Sculptra® injections.
