Do you wish you had alluring smooth skin like a celebrity on the red carpet or the perfect cheekbones of Kim Kardashian? You have definitely heard of injectable treatments such as botox and fillers, as just about every A-list celebrity has had them done. Have you ever wondered how some middle-aged celebs look younger and younger every year? Superstar like Madonna is once again speculated to have had another plastic surgery to bring in her youthful vibe. Some experts speculate that the singer have had dermal fillers like Sculptra or Juvederm. Even Simon Cowell commented that he considers Botox as much a part of his routine as toothpaste!
Madonna looks unbelievable and natural. Experts believe the singer has cosmetic treatments done such as fat grafting, Sculptra or dermal fillers.
Thanks to a regular diet of lasers, radio-frequency and needles, many middle-aged celebs look younger than ever. Injectables are the most sought after cosmetic treatment. American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery reveals that there were more than 8.5million cosmetics minimally-invasive procedures in a year and non-surgical procedures made up 83 percent of the total. In this section, SKIN reveals the secret to ageless beauty and timeless skin using Dream Sculpture.
Kim Cattrall has been quoted saying she uses Botox and collagen-stimulating injectables like Sculptra.
The natural ageing process results in skin loses its full, firm and youthful appearance over time. Skin becomes thinner and loses its natural elasticity from the facial contours leading to loss of volume and hollowness around the temples and cheek areas. As we age, the body’s collagen production decreases at the rate of 1.5% a year. This starts happening at the age of 25! So ladies, by time you reach the age of sixty, you must have lost at least 50 percent of this crucial collagen – and that explains why everything goes down south (and yes, EVERYTHING).
Our dream skin is one that is firm, full, smooth and youthful. Here’s the secret to looking better and younger as you age. “Dream Sculpture is the technique of using Sculptra to boost your skin’s own collagen to help restore its inner structure and increase facial volume that has been lost to ageing.” Explains Dr. Kenneth Lee, co-founder of The SW1 Clinic. Dream Sculpture is different from other facial fillers because it works with your body to help revitalise the production of collagen to give your skin elasticity and contour you need to look young again. Poly-L-lactic acid, the key ingredient of Sculptra, was specially developed to repair contour defects in the face and more than three million patients have been treated effectively since 1999. Not only this FDA-approved natural collagen stimulator is long-lasting, it is biocompatible and biodegradable.
“Right after your treatment, Sculptra starts to work deep in the dermis where your skin’s structure is enhanced and collagen is replaced. This gradually restores the volume of depressed areas, particularly shallowness, skin creases, wrinkles, fine lines, folds and scars over the first few weeks post injection.” In the months post-treatment, it can restore more youthful skin and contours, lifting and creating definition where you may have lost over the years.
This is the perfect option for those who are not keen to go under the knife. “Dream Sculpture provides gradual, natural looking results with significantly less downtime compared to surgical facelift. The procedure takes as little as 30 minutes.” Explains Dr. Lee further. As with all injectable treatments, there is a possibility of pin-prink marks and occasionally, brushing which can be easily concealed with cosmetic.
Collagen is a key structural component of smooth, refined and healthy-looking skin. Dream Sculpture is an ideal treatment for someone who would like gradual natural collagen effects and who are looking for long term enhancement of their skin.
