I am 59 years old. Should I be worried about having Sculptra treatments at my age?

Dr. Dean Kane Q & A Q. I am 59 years old. Should I be worried about having Sculptra treatments at my age? A. Sculptra is found to be a mild filler but a more powerful bio-stimulant of collagen, hyaluronic acid, elastin and other dermal, subcutaneous and bone molecules. It seems to firm, build and repair rather than volumize from the mass of the product injected. ​ ​Age is not the determining factor in whether Sculptra is best for you. Considerations include:
  1. Medical history,
  2. Bruising and swelling potential,
  3. ​Dermal injury from weather or sun,
  4. ​Dermal thickness from heredity and personal genetics,
  5. ​Skin laxity,
  6. ​Soft tissue (fat and muscle) laxity,
  7. ​Expectations,
  8. ​Acceptance to multiple sessions and recovery periods,
  9. ​Cost and budget.
  10. Other factors.
​ ​It is best to seek the opinion of a very competent, well experienced and Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, Dermatologist or other skilled and talented injector with this particular product. ​ ​I wish you the best!
