If you find that you are concerned with signs of aging, such as lines, wrinkles, folds, or even loose skin, it may be that you could benefit from collagen stimulation. With age, our skin does not produce as much collagen, hyaluronic acid, or elastin as we did in our youth. Youthology Medical is glad to offer four different collagen-stimulating treatments to address any areas of concern: Sculptra, MINT PDO Threads, MD Pen, and Radiesse.
What Is Sculptra?
Sculptra is an injectable treatment that contains poly-L lactic acid. Poly-L lactic acid is synthetic, biodegradable compound. This semi-permanent dermal filler is proven to stimulate the important structural protein we call collagen and gradually restore volume to the targeted injection site. We lose fat from our faces and develop wrinkle lines, but at the right injection sites, with an expert hand, Sculptra can restore youthful fullness to the face.
Sculptra Treatment Areas:
- Remove wrinkle lines
- Add volume to lips
- Treat deep nasolabial folds
- Increase plumpness or cheek lift
- Fill in hollowed-out temples
What are MINT PDO Threads?
MINT PDO Threads are a beauty procedure, popular in the cutting-edge Korean beauty industry. PDO stands for Polydioxanone, which is a biodegradable, colorless synthetic polymer. PDO Threads are medical-grade sutures that are used to stimulate collagen production in the face. PDO Threads can also be used in parts of the body as well, such as the neck, butt, arms, and knees. A MINT PDO Thread facelift is a popular minimally invasive alternative to surgical facelifts. You can expect PDO Threads to last up to six to nine months.
Mint Threads Can Help:
- Reduce wrinkles
- Tighten and reposition sagging skin
- Ease signs of aging
- Restore youthful contours of the face
What Is Microneedling With The MD Pen?
Microneedling is also known as collagen induction therapy. In microneedling, a sophisticated device uses tiny needles to gradually remove acne scars, enlarged pores, and stretch marks. Collagen induction therapy promotes your skin’s natural ability to produce collagen and creates incredible results when it comes to your skin’s beauty and health. This safe and effective procedure uses your body’s natural healing factor to regenerate the surface layer with fresh, revitalized skin. The MD Pen specifically offers a lower downtime, and less photosensitivity compared to laser treatments. You can expect one session to take 20-45 minutes, depending on your aesthetic goals.
Treatment Areas For MD Pen Microneedling:
- Improve skin texture
- Regenerate skin tissue
- Reduce wrinkles, lines, enlarged pores, acne scars, and stretch marks
What Is Radiesse?
Radiesse is a filler that removes fine lines and helps volumize the face. Your body’s natural collagen is stimulated using Calcium Hydroxyapatite. While Calcium Hydroxyapatite is biosynthetically produced for a Radiesse treatment, the compound itself is naturally found in your body, in human bones. Radiesse can improve the fullness of your face and hands, and reduce noticeable creasing.
Radiesse Can Help:
- Reduce the appearance of deep nasolabial folds
- Correct volume loss in the back of hands (a sign of aging)
