Refresh and Renew This Spring
You may have read Dr. Humphrey recently talking a lot about natural-looking results – on this blog, at the American Academy of Dermatology Annual Meeting, and in Vancouver Magazine this month. There’s lots of talk about it at our office too, as we strive to help patients look and, more importantly, feel their best – natural looking results are top priority.
And our patients know it. In particular, we have patients in their 20s and 30s who are seeing the first signs of aging and are looking for ways to get ahead of it – to stop the problem before it starts!
One of the ways to do this is with a subtle, overall treatment. For example, Sculptra®, an injectable treatment derived from fruit acids, is a long-lasting, no downtime way to freshen your overall appearance.
With the earliest signs of aging it often boils down to volume loss including collagen – a key structural component under the skin that provides volume and gives shape to your face. Around age 30, your body’s collagen production decreases and the collagen you have begins to break down, which can lead to the appearance of wrinkles, lines and folds in your skin.
Sculptra® stimulates your body to produce its own collagen, which results in a gradual and natural-looking improvements in your appearance in the months that follow the treatment. A few treatments may be required to achieve optimal results, but it then can last for up to two years!
In terms of natural-looking results, Sculptra ® is certainly one of our most popular, and most long-lasting, ways to achieve this.
