WE TRIED IT: Sculptra, the Champagne of Fillers
When someone tells us that a new filler has hit the market and its amazing we are first in line to try it and decide for ourselves. So when we heard that the new liquid collagen filler Sculptra was “the champagne of fillers” we had to find out if it was truly the Dom Perignon of the filler world. There are certainly fillers we like better than others, but everyone is different and everyone has different skin care and antiaging goals. But there was something special about Sculptra. Curious? Here’s the 411:
They say Sculptra is the new way of achieving the look and result of having a facelift, but without surgery. It’s the most advanced lift you can get from an injection-only treatment. And, champagne of fillers it was indeed – just one treatment and we saw amazing, gradual and long lasting results that somehow got even better over time. This amazing product works with your own skin to produce the results naturally.
With just a few simple injections it will help plump gaunt cheeks; erase or reduce lines and wrinkles; smooth skin and improve texture; restore skin’s youthful plumpness and give a younger, lifted look.
All this because your skin boosts its own collagen production after being stimulated by the active ingredient in Sculptra. Nothing artificial remains in your skin. Pretty impressive!
Sculptra is quite simply revolutionising the way lines and wrinkles are treated as rather than artificially filling or smoothing lines, Sculptra gets your own skin to ‘repair’ them naturally by growing new collagen over the months following treatment.
Collagen is the main structural component of the skin and it is the loss of collagen as we age that causes lines, wrinkles and a gaunt look. So there is no better way to restore youthful plumpness and elasticity than by getting the skin to replace its own lost collagen. It really is like turning back time and the effects can last for up to three years.
Before bringing Sculptra to his practice Dr. Daniel Shapiro undertook a lot of research in to the product: “I was looking into a number of different treatments, but it was Sculptra that stood out. The results were very impressive and so far patients have been thrilled with it,” he said.
He added: “It has been used in medical treatments for a long time and is known to be safe. Most of all I liked that the antiaging itself is natural; it is your own collagen that is filling lines and wrinkles and restoring a youthful look.
We loved it. Will you try it?
