Have you tried any of the various age-combating fillers on the market? All of them have different strengths and different drawbacks, but no one can argue with the end results. For a start, frown-lines are smoothed out, taking away that angry look that can beset people of a certain age. Then there’s the dramatic effect on the laughter lines – what once were crevices are now near-invisible. And the marionette lines below the mouth can also be dealt with with just one or two injections. Some fillers can even be injected into the cheek-bone area to give a more sculpted look to the face. Combine this process with gay massage in London, and you have a powerful, youth-giving cocktail at your disposal because the massage treatment at Tantric Soul will relax you and nourish you both physically and spiritually.
But there’s one filler treatment that’s a bit different and that is Sculptra. It’s a more sophisticated treatment because it doesn’t just sit dormant under the skin once injected; it actually works with the body and adapts itself gradually to great effect. Sculptra is the name of injectable poly-L-lactic acid. Unlike conventional fillers which completely metabolise and disappear after nine to twelve months, Sculptra lasts for two years, sometimes longer. It’s really worth giving a go if you’ve tried other fillers and want something better.
Conventional fillers generally use hyaluronic acid. Sculptra works differently because it helps to stimulate the skin’s own production of collagen, rebuilding the inner structure and filling out the face to combat the loss of facial volume caused by ageing. Collagen starts to leave the face after we turn 20 years old. We lose about 1 per cent of it a year, sadly. Thus, the formation of wrinkles begins. It’s subtle at first, of course, but sometimes by our mid-twenties, we’ll begin to see an incipient ravaging effect. Before long, crow’s feet, laughter lines, frown lines and marionette lines begin to form, affecting every area of the face. We look care-worn, defeated, grumpy, sagging and sorry. It’s not a good look. Yes, genes will make the process easier for some than for others. And some people have the kind of bone structure that can withstand the changes, leaving them almost as handsome as before the wrinkles crept in. But for many of us, this is not the case and we are left looking like a shadow of our former selves. Gay massage in London can help a lot, it’s true, but we also need something that targets the face directly. Sculptra may be just the right treatment for you. Its key differences from conventional fillers are the duration of the results (two years or more), the fact that it targets the cause, not just symptom and, alas, cost.
