About Face: This New Treatment Will Revive Your Skin
You know what's the best part about aging? That's right, it's that you get to do it with a little more grace than your younger counterparts!
But don't worry—if you're feeling like your skin is looking a little saggy than you'd like, you can take matters into your own hands and get some help from Sculptra®, a collagen biostimulator.
At the launch of Sculptra®, friends of Galderma, a Swiss medical aesthetics company, were given a taste of what’s in store for Filipinos who want to get into the idea of preventative measures for aging.
“Filipinos typically start losing collagen as early as mid-30s, our skin starts to show signs of ageing such as wrinkles, sagging and lackluster complexion,” says Dr. Yu Ming Huang, a board-certified dermatologist and adjunct attending physician at the National Taiwan University – Children’s Hospital.
What is it? Well, Sculptra® is made from a biocompatible material called poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA). This unique material has been used in medical devices for decades and is well-known for its safety and effectiveness. With this, Sculptra® can restore skin laxity, volumize aged skin and help revive fullness.
The treatment involves a series of injections that are typically spaced out over several months, and the results can last up to two years or more—restoring volume and improving contours and folds.
The best part? You don't have to take time off work or school—you just go back to your life.
