The Times recently published an article about how over exercising can lead to a ‘gym face’ – where weight is lost from the face, resulting in a drawn look with sunken features. Many celebrities such as Matthew McConaughey and Jake Gyllenhaal have experienced this same thing, and most Hollywood celebs over the age of 40 have their own personal dermatologist.
Cosmetic Surgery Partners patient Phil Walker tells The Times about his experience with Sculptra, and how working out too hard made him age…
Cosmetic Surgery Partners have recently introduced a brand new treatment, Sculptra, a facial injectable that makes the skin look fresher and younger by restoring the skin’s natural contours, smoothing out wrinkles, creases and folds. The injection stimulates the growth of the skin’s natural collagen, which then replenishes lost volume in the face and stops the process of ageing. The Sculptra process is very gradual, and gives a more natural looking appearance without giving the game away. Unlike other ‘dermal fillers’ which simply get injected to plump and smooth certain areas of the face, Sculptra is what our surgeons refer to as a ‘bio-stimulator’, which promotes the growth of naturally occurring collagen. Patients will undergo a series of treatments – an average of 3 injection sessions with an interval of 4 to 6 weeks between each session. The results of Sculptra can last for more than 2 years. Both our expert surgeons Miles Berry MS, FRCS and Nick Percival FRCS carry out this procedure at the clinic.
