As we age our skin starts to lose its collagen and elasticity. This results in the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and undefined jawline and loose skin.
The darker the skin the better the ageing process, whiter skin will lose collagen much faster.
By combining Sculptra and Silhouette Soft, Dr Ayham Al-Ayoubi has created the ultimate non-surgical facelift.
What is Sculptra?
Sculptra is a long lasting collagen stimulating injectable treatment used to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and to restore lost volume to the face. It works differently than traditional dermal fillers as it stimulates the patient's own collagen production and gradually achieves a more subtle and fresher look.
By gradually replenishing the body's own collagen it gives a more natural look that can last up to three years.
Collagen production begins to slow down in the twenties so this is a good time to start Sculptra as it keeps the reserves of collagen active.
Sculptra is very beneficial in the thirties and forties as it can be used to help smooth out fine lines and wrinkles, tighten loose skin and help keep the reserves of collagen active.
In the fifties, sixties and onwards Sculptra is used to tackle the loss of facial volume, to tighten the skin and to reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
What is Silhouette Soft?
Silhouette Soft consists of threads made up of polylactic acid. The threads have unique cones positioned in two directions to enable them to hold onto the skin. It is an extremely effective treatment for lifting sagging jaw-lines and helping to smooth out the contour of skin.
The threads act as a frame beneath the surface of the skin, the cones hold the threads in place and this helps to lift the sagging tissues.
The results with Silhouette Soft are immediate, however, there is continued lifting for up to one year afterwards as the polylactic acid continues to stimulate collagen production.
Until now it has been largely difficult to achieve great results on the jaw-line by using Sculptra alone.
Dr Ayham Al-Ayoubi: Sculptra can be used to give lifting and volume to the mid face while Silhouette soft gives lifting and regenerative action to the lower part of the face and jawline. By combining these two treatments non-surgical face-lifting can be successfully achieved.
Patients are now achieving the results that they desire by combining Sculptra and Silhouette Soft to give them a non-surgical facelift without the need for them to go under the knife.
