Get Ahead of Facial Aging

As a culture, we are living longer and healthier. Aging is a welcome honor many of us find pleasurable. For some though, age and the elements take a toll on our appearance. Facial wrinkles, fine lines and sagging skin contribute to looking older than we want.

Collagen, a wondrous building-block protein that keeps our skin tight and taut slows production by our mid-20s. Yearly, we lose roughly 1% of collagen so that by the age of 50, we have lost 20-40%. Without collagen, the skin loosens, fine lines show and we begin to project a tired appearance.


Sculptra Aesthetic is an injectable poly-L lactic acid for the face that stimulates the collagen production process and increases facial volume and skin thickness. This improves the overall appearance of the face by decreasing wrinkles, fine lines and sagging skin. Sculptra Aesthetic is typically injected over a few sessions spanning about 4 months based on individual need.


“The results are very natural looking and last two years or more. Sculptra Aesthetic is an excellent choice for people who want to address the underlying cause of facial aging,” says Dr. Abraham. “It’s different than any other filler on the market because it’s interacting with your skin’s chemistry to strengthen from the inside out.”
