Toronto dermatology patients discover the benefits of Sculptra
As we celebrate more birthdays, the reflection in the mirror begins to change. Skin loses its tone and its youthful appearance; it becomes thinner, less pliable, and begins to wrinkle. Often patients come to the Dermatology on Bloor office in Toronto, ON, wanting to reverse the signs of aging, but without undergoing invasive, and sometimes painful, plastic surgery.
Now, Drs. Schachter, Hanna,Curtis, Abdulla, Pollack and Taradash have had great success helping patients achieve a younger and more youthful appearance using Sculptra. This biodegradable filler works with your own collagen to fill in lines and smooth out wrinkles over time. Sculptra is unlike traditional Hyaluronic Acid fillers, and is considered a skin thickening agent. It typically requires several treatments over the course of four to eight weeks. While Sculptra doesn’t offer immediate results in the same way that traditional fillers do, there are other benefits for people who want to restore their facial contour. For example:
- Gradual results – Because the results after each treatment are subtle, patient results are gradual. This means that family, friends, and acquaintances are unlikely to know that any treatment has been performed. Further, while the results take longer to achieve, they last longer. Most patients don’t need to undergo another round of treatments for several years.
- Firming and lifting – Not only does Sculptra fill in lines and wrinkles, it also helps to firm the skin, thus tightening the jawline and lifting the cheekbones. It’s a great option for a patient whose face appears thin or tired due to genetics or after considerable weight loss.
- Non-surgical – Sculptra treatment only requires injections of the filler. Patients will receive a local anesthetic to minimize the sting of the needle and the filler being injected. The most common side effect of the treatment is bruising and minor swelling. Both side effects typically disappear within a matter of days and can be minimized by following doctor instructions prior to the injections.
