Sculptra Aesthetic injectable is used to reverse the signs of facial fat reduction that occur with aging. It restores collagen and fills in shallow-to-deep wrinkles that run from the sides of the nose to the corners of the mouth or the nasolabial folds. Sculptra Aesthetic‘s main ingredient is an alpha hydroxy acid, also called poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), a safe and long-lasting synthetic substance.

The advantages of this treatment include:

• Collagen stimulator
• Softens features
• Gradual natural results
• Dynamic treatment
• Treats several areas

The Treatment

Sculptra Aesthetic injections are developed to be a one-time treatment. A patient can have up to 4 injections within three weeks. When injected into deep folds and lines, the collagen produced smooths and volumizes the skin. Results of Sculptra injections vary. In a clinical study, their effects were shown to last for several years in most patients.

Sculptra produces reinvigorated collagen in the smile lines, temples, and cheeks to improve the volume and tighten the skin. Results are visible in 3-4 months.

Skin Tightening

Sculptra is injected within the skin to trigger new collagen production in the knees, elbows, or abdomen. It improves the skin’s tone. Results are visible within 3-4 months.

CAUSES OF AGE SPOTS

Although age spots are usually caused by accumulated exposure to the sun‘s ultraviolet (UV) light, they may also be the result of using tanning beds/lamps; trauma or injury; or genetic predisposition. People with light skin are more likely to develop age spots, as are those with a history of frequent sunburn or sun exposure.

DIAGNOSIS OF AGE SPOTS

True age spots are harmless and do not require treatment. If what is thought to be an age spot appears irregular, however, a biopsy may be performed to ensure that it is not malignant. Spots with the following characteristics should be evaluated by a physician:

In addition, spots that are itchy, red or sensitive, or that bleed, should be checked for malignancy.

TREATMENT OPTIONS FOR AGE SPOTS

Although age spots are not medically dangerous, many people who develop them find them aesthetically unappealing. Treatments to remove age spots or make them less prominent include the following:

Treatment of age spots is considered strictly cosmetic, so insurance companies typically do not cover procedures to remove them.
