DOES SCULPTRA INCREASE COLLAGEN AND FACIAL VOLUME?
The short answer is “Yes!”. Sculptra does stimulate and increase collagen in the skin. It can also be used to enhance the volume in certain areas.
Collagen is the most common protein in the body and helps support the skin's inner structure. Our skin’s natural collagen supply decreases as we age, causing signs of facial aging. Collagen is the most common protein in the body and helps support the skin's inner structure. Sculptra is an injectable collagen stimulator used to volumize areas of your face. The result is a softer, more natural, and youthful appearance.
What is Sculptra?
Sculptra is an FDA-approved, nonsurgical and noninvasive treatment. As a poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) collagen stimulator, Sculptra helps restore the underlying structure of the skin to diminish signs of aging. Sculptra is injected within the deep dermis, triggering the body’s natural collagen production process to help restore the skin’s inner structure. Over time, this new collagen gradually restores facial volume and lessens the look of wrinkles and folds. In fact, many patients report that they’re still happy with their Sculptra results for more than two years after treatment.
What are the benefits of Sculptra?
Sculptra’s benefits make it unique from other types of injections or fillers. After a series of treatments to stimulate collagen production, Sculptra can:
- Reduce deep creases and wrinkles
- Fill hollow cheeks
- Soften cheekbones
- Get rid of hollow temples and chin
Do you get immediate results? How long does Sculptra last?
Unlike dermal fillers, the results of Sculptra are not immediate. The treatment’s purpose is focused on a long-term solution for wrinkles and volume loss. Not only does this make it an effective cosmetic injectable, but it also gives you results that last up to two years or more. With proper skin care and maintenance, you can even extend the duration for up to three years. After your initial treatment series, you will most likely need a single treatment annually to maintain your results.
