Dermatological team offers Sculptra to treat facial wrinkles in various areas

Collagen is a protein in the skin that keeps it firm and supple. After age 20, a person loses about one percent of collagen each year. This can leave facial wrinkles and lines. While there are many ways to temporarily reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles, Dr. Jeanine Downie and our team at image Dermatology ® P.C. in Montclair offer long-lasting solutions such as Sculptra. This injectable addresses the underlying cause of facial aging, not just the symptoms. After treatment, patients can enjoy a more youthful appearance for up to two years.

Understanding facial aging

Excessive sun exposure, tanning beds, smoking, and the natural process of aging can lead to lines and wrinkles between the nose and mouth (nasolabial folds), lines framing the mouth (laugh lines or smile lines), and chin wrinkles. We gently inject Sculptra into these areas to help reverse the signs of aging. In addition to a more youthful look, Sculptra is a highly effective collagen stimulator.

Sculptra is composed of poly-L-lactic acid, which works with the body within the deep dermis. This helps revitalize collagen production and restores the skin’s inner structure and volume. As poly-L-lactic acid microparticles are absorbed, they help stimulate collagen production.
