MOTHER NATURE really doesn’t help us much as we get older and she’s not averse to a few cruel tricks.
One of her meaner wiles is that if we look after our bodies and keep our youthful slimness, she very often punishes us with a face that looks much older than it should.
Watch your diet and exercise and there’s a good chance you will end up with a gaunt, haggard face. Let your body go, pile on the pounds and you can keep your younger, plumper cheeks and smoother skin for longer.
Luckily, on this little game at least, Medcare aesthetics clinics have found a way to outsmart Mother Nature with a trick of their own known as Sculptra.
The Medcare experts said: “Sculptra is a really clever product as it does not artificially fill and plump your face to put back what old Father Time and mean Ma Nature took out, instead it works with your skin to help it rejuvenate and re-plump itself naturally.”
During a Sculptra treatment a liquid is injected into your face. The active ingredient of this is poly-L-lactic acid, which triggers cells known as fibroblasts to produce collagen, which is the main structural component of the skin. As we age, our fibroblast cells produce less and less collagen causing our faces to lose youthful volume. So, by getting the fibroblast cells to pump out more collagen, like they did when we were young, our faces regain their lost plumpness.
The Sculptra itself does not stay in the skin. Once it has done its job, the body simply gets rid of it, meaning the rejuvenation process is entirely natural, and it lasts up to three years.
Poly-L-lactic acid is totally safe and has been used in medical procedures, including dissolvable sutures, for many years.
British doctor, Dr Najma Hussain, is offering free consultations at the Medcare aesthetics clinics in Benijofar and Alfaz del Pi, so you can find out more about Sculptra and what it can do for you.
Currently, clients can benefit from a free micro-needling procedure at Medcare when a Sculptra treatment is booked.
Micro-needling creates tiny punctures in the skin, which also stimulates collagen-producing fibroblast cells to repair and rejuvenate the skin.
It improves the surface appearance of the skin minimising fine lines and wrinkles as well as scarring and stretch marks.
Medcare’s aesthetics clinics offer all the latest skin rejuvenation treatments and stock one of the world’s best doctor-only cosmetic ranges.
