Sculptra Aesthetic: How to Restore Facial Collagen for a Refreshed Appearance

Updated: May 31, 2023

After the age of 18, facial skin begins to lose its natural elasticity and 1% of collagen is lost each year. By the age of 45 you have lost about 25% of collagen. This can lead to dull skin, volume loss, and wrinkles. Fortunately, there is a way to age gracefully & boost collagen from within—Sculptra Aesthetic! This injectable product enhances your skin’s natural power to rejuvenate itself so you can be radiant and look as good as you feel. Let’s discuss how it works.

Sculptra is a unique injectable treatment that helps our body create new collagen that has been lost over time. Usually injected in multiple sessions, Sculptra gradually rebuilds soft, natural looking volume and strengthens the skin for an overall glow. Results are long lasting with minimal maintenance.

What is Sculptra Aesthetic?

Sculptra is an injectable product poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA). The PLLA stimulates your body’s own collagen production, naturally smoothing fine lines, wrinkles, and other signs of facial aging. After your Sculptra treatments, you will begin noticing a gradual but noticeable improvement in the texture and appearance of your skin. The treatment takes less than one hour and mild to no discomfort is typically felt.

How Does Sculptra Work?

When injected to address specific areas of the face, Sculptra helps reverse the signs of facial aging by stimulating collagen production in treated areas. Collagen is a protein within in the body that helps keep our skin looking smooth and youthful. By increasing collagen production using Sculptra, your skin will be able to rejuvenate itself over time with natural-looking results. Optimal results are typically achieved by receiving the recommended treatment sessions 4-6 weeks apart. Full effect is visible by 6 months post-treatment #1 and can last 2 or more years!

Who Can Benefit from Sculptra?

Individuals who are looking for a way to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, or sagging skin may benefit from Sculptra. It’s also an ideal option for those who want long-lasting results without having to undergo surgery or any other invasive procedures. Other injectable services such as Dysport, Botox, and/or filler compliment the effects of Sculptra, to encourage facial balancing. If you are considering using this product but aren’t sure if it’s right for you, please schedule a complimentary consultation with nurse injector Kara. Through an assessment of your needs and desired results, your provider will help guide you toward a beneficial treatment plan!
