I always thought I would have a face lift at 50, but after consulting with Dr Emily Altman I decided another route, Sculptra. This facial injectable replaces collagen that is lost through aging and gives you back a more youthful looking you.
I chose the Sculptra procedure for two reasons, first it was non-invasive procedure that took about an hour from start to finish at the doctor’s office and secondly, it let me look like myself as oppose to the fakeness that can be associated with a facelift.
The aftercare is minimal, massaging the areas injected five times a day for about five minutes for about five days after the injections. There was minor discomfort afterwards from the injections, minimal swelling, but I went about my business the rest of the day with no issues and the next morning I felt fine. I highly recommend Dr. Emily Altman’s practice as I have not only experienced the benefit of the Sculptra but also laser skin tightening (for the neck), Botox & Juvederm injections. She is my secret fountain of youth.
