In addition to the cosmetic surgeries that Dr. Slack performs out of Saint Lucie, Florida, he also focuses on non-invasive procedures in order to combat aging and sagging skin. Some of the non-invasive procedures that he focuses on are:
Sculptra® is a facial injection that uses poly-L-lactic acid in order to naturally stimulate your body’s collagen production. It is a gradual process that builds over 2 months following injection. It typically requires multiple sessions and lasts up to 18 months.that builds over 2 months following injection.
Restylane is an approved temporary facial filler. It is FDA approved as a facial filler and for laryngeal augmentation. It is also used off-label as a filler to rejuvenate hands. It is a hyaluronic acid derivative, a substance that is produced in bones, therefore no test injection is required. Restylane lasts as long as 6-9 months, but like collagen there is variability in an individual’s absorption rate and duration is also related to location.
