Collagen is a key structural component of smooth, healthy-looking skin. As you age, your body’s collagen production decreases. In fact, you lose about 1% of collagen per year after the age of 20.6 This is when you may start to notice the formation of wrinkles. Luckily, Sculptra® Aesthetic can help, even if decades of collagen loss have already occurred.
For areas requiring more diffuse volume, Sculptra®, which promotes the body to produce more of its own collagen, is used. Often two to three injection sessions are performed about four weeks apart, with correction lasting well up to a year or more. Fat Injection is another alternative to provide fullness to facial areas as well as sculpt other areas of the body. Harvested from areas of excess, the fat is purified and re-injected into areas of need, with long-term correction achieved.
Sculptra® Aesthetic works subtly and gradually over time for a more youthful-looking appearance. Unlike hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers, Sculptra® Aesthetic helps stimulate your skin’s own natural collagen production to help restore its inner structure and increase facial volume that has been lost to aging.
