One of the most popular methods of restoring one’s appearance after the signs of aging have developed is with dermal fillers. There is a wide variety of fillers available from Dr. Kenneth Neal of Washington Dermatology Consultants in the Arlington and Stafford areas, including Restylane, Perlane, and Juvéderm. However, dermal fillers continue to advance and one treatment that stands out from the rest is Sculptra.
Sculptra is not a traditional wrinkle filler like other dermal fillers are. Instead, this particular cosmetic treatment focuses on the gradual replacement of volume loss. As patients age, they begin to experience the loss of volume in their face, specifically the fullness around the eyes, lips, mouth, and cheeks. When this occurs, it can cause patients to look considerably older. Patients can work against the signs of aging such as volume loss by undergoing Sculptra injections.
Sculptra works by stimulating collagen production in the areas of the face in which it is injected. Collagen is lost over time, which causes skin laxity and the formation of fine lines and wrinkles. When collagen is produced, it adds volume and can result in a more youthful appearance. This is the desire of many of the patients who visit Washington Dermatology Consultants for anti-aging solutions.
This particular injectable has poly-L-lactic acid, which is a synthetic material that has been used for many years for medical purposes. This material is biocompatible and works with the body to rejuvenate collagen.
Sculptra injections are not only effective, but they are completely safe. Sculptra was approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration in the United States) in 2004 for cosmetic use and it continues to provide patients with amazing results. It can be used in many areas of the face to increase volume, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and combat the signs of aging to bring back beauty and youthfulness.
Patients in and around the areas of Stafford and Arlington who are seeking anti-aging solutions may be viable candidates for Sculptra injections. Dr. Kenneth Neal and the team of Washington Dermatology Consultants are here to help patients determine the best injectables for their desires and find one that works with their budget and lifestyle as well.
