With age comes a variety of positives, such as greater perspective and patience. Age also brings wrinkles and sagging skin, two physical changes that are not typically welcome. The changes that occur in our biochemistry affect the skin in various ways. We may notice that our cheeks begin to hollow and that creases that were once only noticeable when we smiled are now a constant. The jaw line may lose its definition as skin and underlying tissue on the cheeks loosens. These problems, once only treatable with invasive cosmetic surgery, can now be handled with minimally invasive dermal filler treatment.
We use various dermal fillers in our Annapolis dermatology office, including Sculptra. Dr. Burgess, an experienced cosmetic dermatologist, uses Sculptra in many situations. This filler is designed to stimulate the body’s natural production of collagen, both immediately and over time. Treatment addresses multiple signs of aging, with Sculptra increasing the volume, lifting the skin and reducing the appearance of fine lines and folds.
What is nice about Sculptra is that this filler, based on poly-L-lactic acid, produces facial transformation over time. As the production of collagen is increased, the skin gradually improves, leading to the most natural rejuvenating transformation. Men and women treated with Sculptra love this gradual approach and enjoy results that can last up to and beyond, two years.
Every one of us is different in how we age and in how our skin reacts to biochemical changes. Dr. Burgess understands that facial rejuvenation is a personal matter and treats each patient based on his or her exact needs. Sculptra may be used as a solitary therapy or may be included in a revitalizing treatment plan that also includes hyaluronic acid fillers and Botox. Addressing the signs of aging with injectables is not only more convenient and less invasive than cosmetic surgery; it also allows you greater control over your transformation.
