Using Sculptra Aesthetic to Restore Collagen Loss

As we get older, certain process and functions in the skin decline, causing the skin on the face and body to sag. In particular, there is a decrease in volume-giving cells, which is due to a decline in the proteins collagen and elastin.  Loss of volume can change the structure and shape of the entire face, and make it appear older. Skin care treatments that are able to restore collagen loss, are therefore very effective in replenishing missing volume.

Loss of Collagen and Facial Aging

When there is a loss of facial volume, the cheekbones fall and flatten, the jawline becomes less defined, and the skin sags, among other things.  The most effective anti-aging treatments are able get to the root of the problem, and restore collagen loss.

Sculptra Aesthetic

Sculptra Aesthetic is a collagen stimulator that treats the skin where it needs help the most, which is at the cellular level. Sculptra is comprised of poly-L-lactic acid, which is a synthetic material that the body absorbs easily. Sculptra facial injectable is approved by the FDA, for the correction of the signs of facial fat loss.

How it works

Sculptra Aesthetic is injected into the deep dermal layer of the skin. The poly-L-lactic acid works within the dermis to replace lost collagen, and also strengthens the structure of the skin. As volume is gradually restored, the folds and wrinkles on the face fill out and become smoother. The results look very natural, and can last up to 2 years. It typically takes 2-3 sessions with Sculptra to achieve optimal results.
