As we age, the amount of collagen our body produces decreases drastically, the skin component responsible for strength and elasticity. The decrease in collagen leads to the appearance of folds, wrinkles, and hollowness on our faces. Sculptra is a popular option for restoring a more youthful look to the face using dermal fillers, and is a collagen regeneration product. It is an FDA approved soft tissue filler that stimulates your skins fibroblasts to produce new collagen, thereby reversing the loss of the skins fullness. It is used to fill and recontour areas where underlying supportive collagen and fat tissue have diminished with age or have been damaged by injury or disease. Sculptra is most often used to cheek hollows, smile lines, and depressions around the eyes. It is also used to restore fullness to the hands for a natural, younger appearance.
Sculptra treatments consist of a simple series of injections into the deeper layers of skin. Each treatment takes only minutes to perform, and is usually done in a series of usually three sessions. Side effects include short term bruising, redness, soreness, and slight swelling. There is very little downtime.
The results of Sculptra injections are not immediate. However, the effects of the treatments are enduring and will continue to improve. Skin thickness can increase over the course of several weeks, and may require a second or third treatment to touch up the area. Unlike other absorbable injectables that last only a few months, the benefits of Sculptra can last up to three years.
Stem cells are tiny ancestral cells found in our body that can divide and change into various cell types. Your stem cells are your body’s natural healing cells and can act as your own personal repair system in your body by replenishing adult tissues. They are also the source of all the cell that die. There are two broad types of stem cells: embryonic stem cells, and adult stem cells. For our purposes we do not utilize embryonic stem cells, we magnify on the usage of adult stem cells and bone marrow stem cells.body where it is most needed. Bone marrow stem cells can be used for similar functions.
