When we think of aging, we think of wrinkles on our faces, fine lines around our lips, and crow’s feet near our eyes. However, lines have a funny way of making their way onto other parts of our bodies. At Cosmetic Laser Dermatology in San Diego, we want our patients to know that injectables and facial fillers have more uses than you may previously have thought.
CLDerm’s own Sabrina Fabi, MD, has been featured in a recent article published in the Cosmetic Surgery Times, and according to the write-up, injectable Sculptra is not only effective but safe, to use as a filler for deep aging chest lines. In a new study, 28 patients were examined and treated with Sculptra for the management of chest lines. Of the 28 who showed moderate to severe lines in their chest, every single test subject saw an improvement in volume, wrinkles, contour, and even laxity with between 2-3 treatments on average.
In the past, fractional CO2 resurfacing has been the go-to procedure to help women overcome this problem, though it requires downtime and has the minor potential for scarring. Sculptra, on the other hand, requires absolutely no downtime and the procedure takes only minutes in the office. Afterward, patients can continue to go about their everyday activities just as normal.
What Is Sculptra?
Though the treatment has been almost always used to treat areas of the face, Sculptra works as a volumizing treatment to actually regenerate your own collagen, resulting in a smoother and contoured skin appearance. Unlike other fillers, Sculptra does require additional treatments to see optimal results. After your procedures, you’ll be happy to know about one of the best aspects of Sculptra—it can last for up to two years!
Sculptra isn’t only ideal for an aging chest, but can also be used to rejuvenate body areas including:
- Under eye hollows
- Jawline rejuvenation
- Chin wrinkles
- Marionette lines
