Bring aging to a halt

The search for the fountain of youth is part of the plot of countless movies and books, since not aging is a recurring dream of the human being. With the evolution in dermatology, to bring aging to a halt is already possible through the application of modern techniques that treat the patient on a global basis.

One of the treatments is Sculptra, which is injected into specific areas of the face and helps control the aging process of the face. “The poly-L-lactic acid helps to administer bone, collagen, and fat losses. These losses are the main culprits for signs of facial aging,” says dermatologist Annia Cordeiro, director of the Clínica de Pele Annia Cordeiro (Annia Cordeiro Skin Clinic), dermatology center in Curitiba.

The poly-L-lactic acid is a bio-stimulant, therefore it acts in different ways. One of them is to stimulate the production of collagen – a protein that has a structural function and that gives firmness to the skin – attacking flaccidity directly.

“Another application that has been studied is the use of Sculptra in specific areas of the face to prevent bone losses. With aging, bones lose volume and the skin of the face loses its support, resulting in signs of flaccidity, wrinkles, and loss of contour”, explains Dr. Annia.

Administering the losses, the result is a more harmonious face, with preserved traces and contours and a younger-looking appearance.

For its application against flaccidity, Sculptra is also indicated for use in the body, arms, knees, thighs, elbows, cleavage, and neck.
