Wrinkles are a common but unsightly sign of aging that can develop at any stage in an adult’s life. As we become older, it becomes more of a priority to incorporate anti-aging solutions into our daily skincare routine. However, at-home methods can only minimally treat issues that lie on the surface of the skin.
Most patients can benefit from non-surgical treatment with injectable fillers. Some of the popular products on the market include:
- BELOTERO BALANCE®
Injectable fillers have been modified over time to produce optimal and long-lasting results for patients who desire non-surgical facial rejuvenation. Most fillers are made of hyaluronic acid, a substance that the body produces naturally, but Sculptra® Aesthetic is a unique formula that offers superior non-surgical facial rejuvenation.
The Sculptra® Aesthetic Difference
Sculptra® Aesthetic is an injectable filler that gradually smooths facial creases over the course of approximately two sessions scheduled at six weeks apart. It is ideal for the correction of general laxity to face and body, fine lines, nasolabial folds, marionette lines, chin wrinkles and can also be used for buttock enhancement and cellulite correction.
Like hyaluronic acid, this product restructures the skin with the help of poly-L-lactic acid. The body reacts by producing healthy collagen in the treated areas, resulting in naturally youthful skin that is restored from the inside out. And the best nuance is that the procedure only needs to be done once a year after the initial treatment!
While other injectable formulas can be effective options, Sculptra® Aesthetic provides the following benefits:
- Natural-looking outcome
- Long-lasting rejuvenation
- Gradual, conservative improvement
- Enhanced collagen production
What Causes Wrinkles?
Because collagen is an important protein for keeping the skin firm and smooth, depleted stores of it usually lead to fine lines and wrinkles. Men and women start to lose approximately one percent of collagen every year after the age of 18. Sculptra® Aesthetic combats collagen loss and gives the skin natural rejuvenation effects over the course of a three to six month period.
How to Treat Other Types of Wrinkles
Some facial wrinkles result from a combination of factors, such as loss of volume and repetitive muscle movement. When muscles contract in the same area over and over, dynamic wrinkles can form on the surface. These are often treated with BOTOX® Cosmetic, XEOMIN®, Dysport®, or Jeuveau™ medical-grade injectable neurotoxins. Patients with volume loss and dynamic wrinkles may want to pair their Sculptra® Aesthetic treatment with a muscle-relaxing product for optimal smoothing effects.
