Sculptra

What are the reasons for aging?

The aging of the face should not be perceived as the aging of the skin, as it is thought. The aging of the face is due to the differentiation of all tissues from the skull to the skin.

The following changes occur with age:

- The protrusions of the skull bones are reduced and flattened

- Muscle tissue weakens and volume decreases

- The facial contours of the fat tissue and the downward displacement

- Binding of the facial skin to the bone tissue loosens, skin hangs

- Reduces skin elasticity and reduces water retention capacity (collagen reduction)

What is Sculptra?

Sculptra is a filler produced from Poly L-Lactic Acid (PLLA), a derivative of fusible sewing threads used in surgery. It is a substance that is compatible with body tissues and does not show any foreign matter reaction. It creates its effect by stimulating subcutaneous collagen stimulation, not by giving volume to the region, such as hyaluranic acid fillers. Thus, it creates a rejuvenation effect in the applied area, reduces the lines and wrinkles.

How does Sculptra show its effect?

The main building material that gives the skin a young and smooth appearance in the face area is collagen. Collagen production in the skin decreases over time. With the decrease in the amount of collagen, the wrinkles and shadows in the face begin to increase and the face appears older.
