Boston, MA (PRWEB) October 02, 2013
Masha Banar, Board Certified Physician Associate of Visage Sculpture, has observed much shorter duration of fillers like Radiesse, Juvederm, and Restylane in patients who are more physically active than an average person. No official studies have been published to date despite the attention to this problem in the media. Banar documented consistent shorter lasting results in at least 20 of her patients who are athletes. Body builders, personal trainers, and professional athletes have higher metabolism due to the larger muscle mass and energy expenditure during exercise. In most of them, fillers don’t last more than three months (average duration is 8 months). “A lot of those patients want to look fresh and young for the competitions and choose a quick and convenient option of instant fillers just to find out it’s gone three times faster than promised,” says Banar. “However, longevity of results was not affected when Sculptra was used.”
Most dermal fillers (Juvederm, Restylane, Perlane, Belotero) are composed of hyaluronic acid, a soft hydrophilic clear gel that is slowly being metabolized by the body over the period of several months after injection estylane official site. Radiesse comprises a much higher density opaque paste that behaves like a liquid implant and is also metabolized by the body over time (Radiesse official site).
Sculptra is a collagen stimulant that dissolves quite fast, however the collagen produced by the body in response to inflammatory reaction created by Sculptra lasts as long as the rest of the collagen in our bodies-up to two and a half years (official Sculptra Aesthetic site). All the athletes treated by Banar with Sculptra for facial volume loss have reported results lasting approximately two years. Banar’s clinical observation allowed her to offer extremely fit and physically active patients a much better alternative to fillers so they would enjoy their results much longer now.
