Facial ageing is due to a combination of changes to the skin and facial bones.
As skin ages the dermis thins due to collagen loss thus reducing its ability to retain elasticity and moisture. In addition facial fat moves downwards and resettles, changing facial contours. While these changes are occurring in the dermis and subcutaneous layers of your skin, the epidermis (surface layer of the skin) changes colour and texture.
The loss of facial volume can make your face look thin and narrow with sunken cheeks, sometimes making you look older than you actually are.
SCULPTRA is a simple injectable volumising treatment that works by stimulating the build up of the body’s natural collagen to help smooth out lines and wrinkles. It also helps to restore lost facial volume to give you a fuller younger-looking face. The enhancement is long-lasting (2-3 years) and looks completely natural.
