Collagen and elastin are essential proteins found in the body that have many important functions. These two proteins work together to give the skin its shape and firmness. As we start to age, our collagen and elastin production steadily decline. Weak collagen translates to aging, wrinkled skin, while weak elastic fibers contribute to sagging skin. The great news is, it’s never too late (or early) to build collagen and elasticity in your skin- and with the introduction of our state-of-the-art laser center, Synergy Plastic Surgery is here to help every step of the way!
With age, collagen and elastin loss in skin affects how we look. Sculptra® helps stimulate collagen and elastin production…balancing their loss and making our skin look healthier. These modalities are an essential part of a skin maintenance regimen that will keep you looking younger longer, in addition to improving your appearance!
Sculptra® Aesthetic is an innovative product that is injected like a filler. However, unlike a filler, Sculptra® causes the body to create its own collagen, making it more of a “volumizer” of the entire face instead of just filling individual lines or folds. Due to the stimulation of your skin’s natural collagen production, it works more subtly than a filler, gradually producing improvement over time for a more youthful-looking appearance. Many patients who have been treated with it, feel that their results are more natural!
Retin A Treatment: Unlike traditional retinol, Retin-A contains the active ingredient, Tretinoin, a naturally occurring form of vitamin A. Retinol is much weaker than Retin-A, making Retin-A most effective. Retin A works by speeding up the skin’s metabolism to promote cellular turnover. As skin cells turnover, they increase collagen and elastin production while preventing the breakdown of collagen, making it one of the most effective anti-aging topical treatments! In addition, it has been shown to be effective in reversing sun damage as well as some pre-cancerous skin conditions. Ask us about SkinBetter AlphaRet today and learn how this product can help you!
