Truth be told, Beauty fades. There’s no better way to say this, but we are all going to age and the earlier we embrace the fact that aging is part of being human, the better. While time seems like the “enemy” here, it has also brought us to an era where new technologies have emerged. One of the best things that modern skincare technology has given us is the ability to delay aging.
Before this present time, when people say they are 40 years old, it sounded and looked “old” somehow. But now, people even in their 50s could easily pass for a 30-year old . Same goes true for people in their 60s and 70s they still look good and younger than they actually are.
So when is the right time to start getting treatment done, you ask. You also wonder, “am I too young or too old to start any treatment? These are all valid, life-changing (and skin-altering) questions. But the bottomline is: it’s never too late nor it’s too early for any treatment, especially if you start noticing something that bothers you when you look at the mirror .
In this column, I want to talk about how to look ten years younger. Is this possible ? Yes!
How? You start by getting professional consultation and proper evaluation of your skin.
One of the signature protocol that is available at iSkin and MiSkin that is becoming more and more very popular is our approach on how to look 10 yrs younger.
This is what we call the “Sculptra Treatment.” This protocol, restores youthful shape, improves skin texture, and offers natural-looking results. Plus, IT IS long-lasting! It is a facial injectable that works deep within the dermis to help replace lost collagen and gradually restores the look of fullness to areas of the face affected by facial wrinkles and folds. Sculptra is made from Poly-L-lactic acid, a synthetic material that has been used for decades in dissolvable stitches and soft tissue implants. The FDA approved it for use in correcting facial wrinkles in 2009. Collagen stimulators are used to diminish facial wrinkles by helping to restore the deep, underlying structure of the skin. Results appear gradually over the treatment regime (typically three injections over the course of three to four months) and can last up to two years. Since Sculptra is a collagen stimulator, the procedure is literally fertilizing your collagen. So, imagine your collagen growing, which is basically what our skin needs because collagen tends to diminish as we age. Sculptra is designed to bring back that collagen underneath your skin to give you that youthful look.
The microparticles of polylactic acid initiate the formation of sheets of collagen under the skin. You will start noticing improvement in four to six weeks and you will see more improvement the next 6 to 25 months – the tightness of the skin improves from temple to jawline area, and you’ll notice more volume, plus there’s an improvement in texture and elasticity. This treatment is something you don’t need to do often yet you’ll see the results after two to four sessions. The best part is that you’ll continue to see improvements over time.
What are the benefits of sculptra aesthetic?
Let us breakdown the benefits of this “time-altering” skincare technology.
- Sculptra restores youthful shape
Sculptra restores the fullness and volume of the face. Over time, the people around you may notice that you look fresher, younger, and more radiant, but they won’t be able to put their finger on what it is. That’s a good thing!
- Sculptra improves skin texture
Although Sculptra stimulates the collagen deep within the dermis, the results show up on the surface layers of your skin as well. In addition to the volumizing and plumping effects, you get the glowing tone and smooth texture of youthful skin as well. Great for acne scarring!
- Sculptra offers natural-looking results
Some injectables work to relax the muscles causing the wrinkles in your face to soften. Others diminish lines and wrinkles by filling in the space. Sculptra works gradually to stimulate your own body’s collagen production, resulting in a natural, more beautiful and youthful-looking you!
- Sculptra is exceptionally long-lasting
Studies have shown that the majority of cosmetic patients would choose duration over immediacy when it comes to injectable filler treatments. With Sculptra, you get exactly that. Though other fillers may provide immediate results, they need to be injected every 6-12 months to maintain preferred results. Sculptra works gradually. You may see some improvements within the first few weeks of treatment, but optimal, long-lasting effects develop after an average of 3 sessions spaced a month or so apart. A full treatment of Sculptra provides.
You may do your own research and read about the benefits of Sculptra to educate yourself more, but before you consider this procedure, I recommend you get a free consultation first. Remember: getting a good evaluation and understanding your needs and your skin goals is very essential. And make sure you consult with providers who are well trained and experienced.
