YOU LOSE ABOUT 1% OF COLLAGEN PER YEAR AFTER THE AGE OF 18
If you want to appear more youthful-looking — without appearing like you’ve had work done — then chances are Sculptra® Aesthetic may be a good choice for you. Sculptra is great for those looking for collagen replacement and for those who haven't started noticing collagen loss yet and want to keep a good thing going!
One of the primary reasons for visible facial aging is loss of collagen, a fibrous protein in the deep dermis that gives structure to skin and supports the functions of elastin and hyaluronic acid (HA). Elastin is an elastic protein that maintains skin shape, while HA cushions and lubricates to keep the skin hydrated. More collagen enables the presence of more elastin and HA.
Sculptra® Aesthetic is made with biocompatible, biodegradable, synthetic material called poly-L-lactic acid, which gradually and naturally helps to stimulate your own collagen growth to rebuild facial volume loss subtly, gradually and naturally through a series of treatments administered by a trained specialist. Results appear gradually over the treatment regime (typically three injection sessions over the course of three to four months) and can last for more than 2 years. Once a year touch ups will maintain your result.
