2021 is finally here: Along with renewed hope, comes resolutions. If you’re looking for a confidence boost this year, we can help. Take self-care to the next level with Sculptra. This hidden gem of an injectable will help you look and feel your best so you can take on the entire year feeling confident.
Here’s everything you need to know about how Sculptra can give you a fresh start.
Let’s start off with a science lesson regarding collagen. Collagen is a protein naturally found in the body that contributes to the skin’s elasticity, firmness, and overall plumpness. It holds the skin’s structure and keeps the skin from sagging.
This ingredient may sound familiar. A common item in topical skincare, collagen is a great hydrating ingredient that is a benefit to any moisturizer. However, applied topically in a cream, collagen is unable to restore lost volume or penetrate the deep layers of the skin known as the dermis.
Similarly, collagen is commonly used in health supplements for ingestion. The benefits of ingesting collagen are inconclusive, and there is no official word on whether or not the supplement is beneficial for restoring volume in the skin.
The reason for the popularity is that as we age, collagen production decreases which leads to fine lines, wrinkles, and loose skin.
While this volume loss is a completely natural part of aging, Sculptra is a collagen-packed gift that keeps on giving for those looking to restore their youthful glow.
The FDA-approved injectable is packed with poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) — a collagen stimulator — that gradually replaces lost collagen, treating the underlying cause of aging, for a result that can last up to two years.
Sculptra is injected deep into the dermis and the PLLA is naturally absorbed into the body. Over time the lost collagen is replenished as the Sculptra signals for new production to occur. This is the perfect injectable for someone interested in revitalizing their look without looking like they’ve had work done. Because collagen production takes up to 12 weeks in the body, the results appear naturally over time: Your own body is creating the repairs, not just addressing the symptoms like fillers or Botox.
Still, it’s important to be committed. Most patients will need up to three injection appointments with multiple injections per appointment to achieve their desired aesthetic. Since we tailor every treatment to the individual, we will guide you through a series of injections to achieve the best possible outcome.
