As people age, it is common to see detrimental changes in the face that are frequently attributed to alterations of the skin. Recent studies however have shown that the root cause is a much deeper one. Namely, the loss of facial volume appears to be one of the most important factors contributing to the aging appearance of the face. More specifically, loss of facial fat and facial skeletal architecture cause far reaching changes that can be seen on the surface. The deep nasolabial folds, marionette lines and jowling are actually a result of this deeper pathology. The facial skeleton, like other parts of the body’s skeleton undergoes bone loss, further accentuating the aging effects seen on the surface.
Traditionally, people who are not ready to undergo surgery, but are ready to improve their appearance, have turned to “fillers”. These products include fillers such as Radiesse (Hydroxy Apatite), Restalyne, and Juvederm (both Hyaluronic Acids). These are good products when used correctly, and for the correct indications, however, they are short lived. Additionally, they truly work simply as fillers, and as such they are merely masking the underlying volume loss.
Sculptra, was initially approved only for the treatment of Lipodystrophy (Fat volume loss). Patients experiencing loss of facial volume secondary to disease or medications were approved to be treated with Sculptra, to restore facial volume. The results seen in this patient population were so encouraging, that the makers of Sculptra applied for and received FDA approval for the use of Sculptra aesthetically in 2009. Since then, Sculptra has become a mainstay in the treatment of facial jowling, deep nasolabial folds, marionette lines, hollow temples and poor cheekbone definition.
Sculptra is formally known as L-Poly Lactic Acid. It functions as a bio-stimulator, rather than as filler, and is the only product of its type on the market. The L-Poly Lactic Acid molecule actually acts by causing a reaction in the skin and deeper tissues to activate the body’s own production of collagen. This is the only product available that stimulates the bodies Fibroblast cells to produce collagen, and by doing so increases facial volume and improves deep folds and wrinkles.
Sculptra works incrementally taking full effect after six weeks to six months depending on the degree of correction desired. It works by stimulating the body to produce natural collagen. This has the advantage of improving the aging face gradually, making the improvement appear more natural than the Fillers. Sculptra has the added advantage of lasting years, as compared to fillers which last six months to one year at most.
Drs. Sassani, Dreszer and Low are experts at using Sculptra in Fort Lauderdale to rejuvenate the aging face. They leave it looking fuller, with more toned skin and improved deep and moderate wrinkles.
