The 411 on Preventative Aging with Sculptra


"We'll be young forever," sings Katy Perry in her song "Teenage Dream." While we know this isn't possible, many of us behave as if it were actually true, not worrying about taking care of our skin until we're already showing signs of aging.

While most people wait to treat the symptoms of aging until it's almost too late, you can start early with cosmetic treatments and delay the aging process, keeping yourself looking younger longer and experiencing overall milder aging characteristics down the road.



3 Causes of Aging and how to Prevent them with Sculptra

Starting Sculptra in your 20s and 30s can make a big difference in fighting the 3 causes of facial aging.


Separation

As you age, the fat pads that keep your face looking full and plump begin to separate. Gravity also has its hand in helping further this along. Unfortunately, this leads to the creation of deeper folds and drooping skin. This can especially be seen in the under-eye area (under-eye bags) and around the mouth (smile lines), where lines begin to form.

The longer you wait to treat this the more correction will be needed to reverse the effects. Starting Sculptra early can act as a preventative measure. By building up the collagen, creating the right structure behind the skin, you can minimize the look of these folds and in many cases delay aging by years!


Loss of Definition

With aging comes bone loss, especially for women. Practically speaking, this often leads to a receding of the jawline or the hollowing of the temples and cheeks, causing the eyes to look sunken and tired and creating excess loose skin such as jowls and a skin hammock under the chin. Youthful people typically have heart shaped (or upside down triangle) faces and as they age, that ratio inverts: sagging tissue and heaviness accumulates in the lower face, jowls and chin area. Thereby aging us considerably in the process.


Sculptra is the answer. Sculptra is typically injected deep and right above the bone, therefore really recreating that bonny structure and support, and creating lifting of the tissues. It helps rebuild the lost volume while improving skin quality at the same time. By helping combat this loss of definition, particularly when you start early, you can really slow down the clock. Sculptra is such a versatile product. Initially created to help revolumize faces for people who had suffered from HIV, it has turned out to have wonderful aesthetic applications all over the body. By applying the correct dosage, placement and frequency you can get incredibly natural results. Best of all results are super long lasting, with an astonishing 87% of people who received Sculptra injections still satisfied with their results 25 months post-treatment.



Collagen Loss

Finally, the biggest culprit of aging is perhaps collagen loss. Studies have shown that collagen production takes a sharp nose dive shortly after 30. Collagen controls the firmness of the skin, helps it keep its shape and healthy texture. Over time, as your body suffers collagen loss, such that overall texture, firmness, and relative dullness of the skin becomes noticeable. If not addressed relatively early, these issues are much harder to correct down the line. That's why I believe in starting conservatively early. I think the late 20s to mid 30s are an ideal time to start with small amounts of sculptra. It will have incredibly natural and subtle results but over time and you will age more like our celebrity counterparts that seem to never age.


VBoutique Can Help

Sculptra is truly a revolutionary product. In contrast to other HA fillers, Sculptra actually helps stimulate collagen production, which can both help diminish and delay the symptoms of aging. Like I mentioned earlier, it was initially developed to help HIV patients regain some of their youthful appearance after suffering from the effects of the disease. It was such a great invention and helped pioneer the aesthetics industry. It has been found to be completely safe, and when injected by an expert it has the most natural looking results. Perfect for taking your first step into a little self care and preventative maintenance.
