woman's face

Posted by Dr. Anil R. Shah

If you’ve wondered how celebrities have preserved their youth, their best-kept secret lies in the use of injectable Poly-L-Lactic Acid, also known as Sculptra Aesthetic.

Sculptra Aesthetic is an injectable filler for collagen synthesis. The gradual build of collagen in the face reverses the looks of aged, volumeless skin. Aging actually begins in our early 20’s when environmental and genetic factors instigate collagen loss. The average person loses about 1% of their collagen per year. A woman in her early 40’s has already lost over 20% of her facial collagen, which ultimately displays in wrinkles, sunken cheeks, pre-jowling, and loss of facial contours.

Sculptra Aesthetic uses injectable poly-L-lactic acid to stimulate collagen production to overcome prior losses. This treatment restores skin firmness, brightest, and volume.

Treatments for Sculptra Aesthetic in Chicago IL are relatively simple, but it does involve some swelling during the first week or so post-injection. The treatments are advised in steps for persistent collagen stimulation. A person should seek Sculptra Aesthetic injections every 3-6 weeks. Patients that are not good candidates for Sculptra have predisposed keloid-scarring, hypertrophic scarring, severe skin inflammation, or skin infections.

Aside from uses in the face, Sculptra may also be applied to the neck for firming neck lines or even gluteal muscles for volumizing and toning the buttocks.
