Dr. Cheryl Burgess of Washington is a board certified dermatologist of the Center for Dermatology and Dermatologic Surgery and strongly believes in providing patients with a wide range of services to help them combat the unwanted signs of aging. While fine lines and wrinkles are a common problem, so is the loss of collagen. Collagen is naturally occurring in the body and can provide volume to the face. After the age of 30, collagen is slowly lost which causes reduced volume and skin laxity which in turn results in loose, sagging and wrinkled skin. To combat this, the team of the Center for Dermatology and Dermatologic Surgery suggests injectable therapy which may include Sculptra.
Sculptra works differently than dermal fillers and neuromodulators. This particular injectable helps in stimulating collagen production where it is injected, therefore adding volume and lifting the skin in a more natural manner than conventional plastic surgeries. Dr. Cheryl Burgess can use Scultpra to fight the signs of aging or to help patients who have HIV with lipoatrophy. It can also reduce the appearance of wrinkles.
Sculptra is extremely safe and effective and received its FDA approval in 2004. With a decade in use, Sculptra continues to be a popular way for patients to improve the youthfulness of their appearance without surgical interventions. It is made of poly-L-lactic acid to stimulate collagen growth and the results achieved can be enjoyed for up to two years. Regular injections may be necessary to maintain the collagen and the youthful look. Patients can also use Sculptra along with many other injectable treatments for an all-over facelift and to turn back the hands of time when it comes to both skin laxity and fine lines and wrinkles.
Dr. Cheryl Burgess is a board certified dermatologist who is excited to offer a wide range of injectable treatments for new and existing patients including Sculptra.
