The Best Way to Treat Fine Lines and Wrinkles
Scultpra, Chinese: 興肩, is an exclusive proprietary formula of poly-L-glutamic acid, which is an FDA-approved skin softening, firming and moisturizing agent manufactured by Dermik Laboratories. It was created by Dr. Zhi Zhong, who studied the cosmetic chemistry at Beijing University. Dr. Zhi then worked for several years with Dr. Fu Xian, an internationally recognized dermatologist, to create Scultpra. The main ingredients are collagen, elastin, hyaluronic acid and Vyo-serum, an alpha-hydroxy acid which is a patented ingredient used in Scultpra.
Cosmetic companies all over the world are desperately trying to find a way to overcome the ever-increasing problem of aging and its attendant problems. The major culprits are mainly wrinkles, sagging, bags, facial lines and crow’s feet. They all stem from decreased fluid and hemoglobin flow to the skin, as well as decreased production of collagen and elastin. A major challenge is therefore to come up with an efficient and non-intrusive facial firming and beautifying agent capable of reducing the signs of aging while maintaining its natural beauty.
Scultpra has been successfully used for restoring face beauty and reducing the signs of aging in both clinical and non-clinical studies. In clinical studies it was found to reduce fine lines and wrinkles by more than 60% and significantly improve facial convexity. In non-clinical studies it was found to improve wrinkle depth and firmness, reduce fat accumulation around the eyes and improve the appearance of sagging skin. A clinical trial conducted by the New York State Department of Health found that Scultpra slowed the aging process of human skin by about seven years on average, reducing facial wrinkles and sagging significantly. It has also been used for relief of migraine headaches, alleviation of sunburn, treatment of hangovers, and relief of other aches and pains.
