How Sculptra can make you look younger

I am 45 years old and I have noticed that the full, firm appearance of my face is disappearing. What can I do naturally, so I look like me again?

What is Sculptra?

What you are experiencing is collagen loss.  Collagen is the structural component just below the skin that gives your face volume and shape.  Following a gradual depleting process that starts about when we are age 30; collagen begins to break down. The resulting damage is what you are seeing now.

What I recommend to my clients, who want a gradual transformation, and natural improvement to the face area, is Sculptra. Derived from fruit acids Sculptra, naturally, stimulates the body to produce its own collagen.

Sculptra has been used and approved in Canada since 1999 for aesthetic medicine and reconstructive purposes.  Cosmetic physicians use Sculptra for correcting skin depressions such as wrinkles and folds, as well as aging skin in the area of temples, cheeks, nasal labial folds, and marionette lines of the chin.

Sculptra is perfect for those that want to look like themselves, only more refreshed and, is long lasting: up to two years.  Generally, it takes three sessions of injections (I use a cannula) for this safe, quick, and comfortable procedure. After each session, about four weeks apart, the previous treatment areas have very satisfactorily improved.
