Getting the beautiful skin you want is a journey. But as time goes on, it can take more work to maintain. As you age, collagen production diminishes, and skin loses the same resiliency and fullness it had when you were young. However, there is an answer to this dilemma. Sculptra is an FDA-approved injectable that gradually replaces diminished collagen. The most common protein in the body is collagen and is used to form a framework to support cells and tissues. Sculptra results can last up to two years.
Sculptra is a poly-L-lactic acid or PLLA collagen stimulator. The product is designed to help bring back the deep structure of the skin to diminish facial wrinkles. Sculptra works deep within the dermis to revitalize collagen production and helps you restore your skin’s inner volume and structure.
Sculptra triggers collagen strands that gradually increase the volume in your face and decrease the look of wrinkles and folds. Be patient. Sculptra is a collagen stimulator, and the fullness you are looking for takes time. This product is designed to make you look younger and fuller naturally.
Not all anti-aging treatments work the same. For example:
Creams including collagen do not totally penetrate the dermis, so topical treatments are effective only as a moisturizer.
Collagen supplements, when injected, there is still a question of if they work to build up collagen.
Toxins temporarily weak muscles to minimize frown lines, but the results only last a few months.
Fillers work immediately to fill in lines, wrinkles, and folds.
Sculptra addresses the underlying cause of facial aging, collagen, not use the symptoms of lost volume.
How does Sculptra Work?
Sculptra is made with a biodegradable and biocompatible synthetic material called poly-L-lactic acid. It is gradually absorbed by the body to help trigger lost collagen through a series of treatments.
How is Sculptra administered?
Trained specialists inject Sculptra into the dermal area where strands of collagen support the skin’s structure. Over time, Sculptra triggers the body to reproduce lost collagen.
How many treatments will I need?
The number of injection appointments you will need does vary from person to person. It all depends on how much collagen is lost. Usually, three injection appointments over a few months are all that is needed.
