The positive effect of Sculptra filler treatment in Newport Beach
We may think the hands of time simply pull skin into a state of laxity, or sagginess. Aging is only one of the factors that can cause changes in the skin. We may also be affected by stress, nutrition, and UV exposure, all of which can lead to premature aging. Loose skin is in part the result of a decrease in collagen, a protein that facilitates tightness, resilience, and elasticity in the skin.
The common thought has been that substances lost in the skin can never be replaced. Advances in the field of cosmetic dermatology, however, have provided new hope for empowerment against the signs of aging. Cosmetic dermatology treatment with Botox aids rejuvenation by relaxing muscles. Some dermal fillers restore resilience by hydrating the skin. The Sculptra filler, used in our Newport Beach dermatology practice, provides something different altogether.
Sculptra is a filler only approved for administration by a licensed physician. It has been designed to stimulate the growth of new collagen, which, in turn, tightens, strengthens, and restores the elasticity to aging skin. The collagen growth stimulated by Sculptra treatment is completely natural leading to positive effects and long lasting results. Some patients report tighter, more youthful looking skin for up to two years.
One of the beautiful characteristics of Sculptra is that there is no immediate filling of lines and wrinkles, only the ongoing production of collagen for beautiful skin. What this means is that treated patients will seem to grow more youthful. The total effect of Sculptra treatments can take up to six months to appear, but look radiant and beautifully natural.
Sculptra treatments in our Newport Beach office are administered with gentle technique and great precision. Because treatment consists of injections with a fine gauge needle, slight side effects may include:
- Minimal discomfort, which may be alleviated by combining lidocaine with filler solution
- Small bumps beneath the skin, which diminish with gentle massage
- Bruising around the treatment area
The natural progression of age includes the decrease of certain supportive substances, leading to lines, wrinkles, and loss of elasticity. Dr. Arta Farshidi, board certified dermatologist, can help you restore a more youthful appearance using Sculptra or other treatments suited to your specific needs.
