As we age, we often experience volume loss in our faces. Unfortunately, this loss results in deeper wrinkles and folds, such as the parentheses (those unwanted lines from the nose to the corner of the mouth and chin) and jowls around your neck. This can make our faces appear more “sunken in,” resulting in a more aged appearance or a tired or sad expression. Facial volume loss can also be a concern of younger people who have lost weight or people who are very fit and have low body fat.
But thanks to injectable filler products we can now safely, effectively, and easily reverse these changes! Dr. Ip offers a wide range of injectable fillers and will develop a treatment protocol that is tailored to your specific needs. Dr. Ip is now trained in Cannula Delivery of Dermal Fillers. If you have a fear of needles, a cannula delivery allows for reduced pain and bruising.
Sculptra Aesthetic® is a new type of facial injectable made from poly-L-lactic acid, which helps to replace lost collagen. It helps correct shallow to deep facial wrinkles, and folds that appear with aging by stimulating your body to produce collagen. The main ingredient is a biocompatible, biodegradable synthetic material that has been used by physicians for decades. Unlike other fillers, Sculptra Aesthetic is not an overnight miracle. It is the first facial injectable that gives you subtle results over time. Giving you a more natural-looking appearance, without giving you away. A full treatment of Sculptra Aesthetic, an average of three injection sessions over a few months, can last more than two years. So you have more time to see how sensational subtle can be.
