However, the thoughts and opinions are my own.
Taxes, death (that’s morbid) and wrinkles…apparently all those things are unavoidable.
Or are they?
Obviously I can’t do much for you in the taxes and death department but I can lead you in the right direction with regards to those pesky wrinkles.
I spent an evening with the Sculptra ® Aesthetic team recently and learned about this wonderful and groundbreaking new way to keep the aging process in slow-mo. Sculptura ® Aesthetic is an injectable that helps a patient gradually restore their own collagen which in turn gives your face that more youthful look we all strive for.
I saw some before and after’s and I was shocked at how natural the process looks. I personally don’t want to look like I’ve had anything done so I’m always interested in learning about methods that can “enhance” you not replace you.
I haven’t had a chance to try the treatment as I’m currently breastfeeding (#momlife) but I will definitely seek it out once I stop.
Why this and not other injectables, you ask?
Well, Sculptra ® Aesthetic is different because it gradually and subtly corrects facial wrinkles. Sculptra ® Aesthetic (injectable poly-L-lactic acid) is indicated for use in people with healthy immune systems as a single regimen for the correction of shallow to deep nasolabial fold contour deficiencies and other facial wrinkles in which deep dermal grid pattern (cross hatch) injection technique is appropriate.
Also, the treatment can last more than two years*.
I encourage you to visit the before & after gallery on their site (SculptraAesthetic.com) to see for yourself the subtleness and natural way this treatment works.
*Individual results and treatment sessions may vary. Clinical trial ended at 25 months
The event took place at the prestigious Young Arts gallery…and it was a perfect blend.
Art and beauty…always a good match.
Have you tried Sculptra ® Aesthetic yet? Let me know your thoughts.
I am definitely looking forward to it and will definitely post back once I have it done.
I’ll leave you all with one last thought: this is not to say you don’t love yourself just as you are.
We are allowed to want to look better rested, younger, happier…there is nothing wrong in wanting to be the best version of who you feel you are.
So on that note, cheers!
