Introducing Sculptra: the “Liquid Facelift” alternative to invasive plastic surgery
By Stephen Krant, MD, FACS
Everybody ages; there’s no escaping it. And no matter how we fight them – be it with sunscreen, healthy food or wholesome lifestyle habits — the physical signs of added wisdom, experience and maturity leave their mark. Sun damage and natural fat and collagen loss take their toll on all mature skin – and while some individuals elect to undergo plastic surgery to correct these changes, others prefer a less invasive solution with minimal recovery time that still has the power to take years off their looks.
Until recently, Botox injections and related filler products were among the only alternatives to cosmetic surgery procedures; but now, a new product touted as “the liquid facelift” promises a means by which to return marked wrinkles and folds to their smooth, youthful state – with nary a knife in site. Sculptra Aesthetic is an injectable that stimulates collagen development in targeted facial areas to rejuvenate and restore tight, smooth contours without surgery. Over the course of three 40-minute sessions, patients can achieve long lasting, natural and in some cases even dramatic results – all without the inconvenience and stress of post-operative downtime or painful recovery. Sculptra is a safe alternative to surgery; however, it can also be combined with laser procedures and cosmetic plastic surgery for more comprehensive results or reconstruction.
