As we age, collagen breakdown can cause tissues to collapse and structural changes in your skin. When this happens, your skin will lose elasticity causing wrinkles and folds from collagen breakdown due to protein loss. You may have tried to mitigate this problem by taking a collagen pill or using collagen-based skin regiments. However, these do not penetrate deep within the skin. To get to the root of the problem, you need Sculptra!
What is Sculptra?
This FDA-approved injection fixes facial wrinkles by working beneath your skin and rebuilding collagen breakdown within the dermis. It can correct nasolabial folds or smile lines, marionette lines, and chin wrinkles for natural-looking, subtle results.
How does Sculptra work?
Sculptra uses poly-L-lactic acid to rebuild lost collagen. It works within your skin to restore structure and plump up volume. This natural process requires a series of approximately three non-invasive, no-downtime treatments over a few months’ time. Injections vary based on the patient as determined in your consultation with Dr. Salzman. After the two-year duration, Sculptra will become naturally absorbed and broken down by your body.
One of the many benefits of Sculptra includes its ability to gradually improve underlying collagen, allowing results to last up to two years! Over the course of a few months, you will see complete results upon completion of the final treatment. Because this treatment is gradual, you will continue to see results over time, giving you natural results that allows for the natural movements of your face. Some patients may experience minor itching, redness, or swelling post-injection, but side effects and allergic reactions have been reported as very minimal.
