Stimulate Restorative Facial Collagen With Sculptra®

Beautiful women with clear skin Sagging skin, fine lines, and wrinkles are all symptoms of the skin’s aging process, and slowed collagen production is frequently to blame. As collagen production diminishes with age, skin elasticity also decreases. Fortunately, treatments like Sculptra® Aesthetic exist to restore collagen in the face, resulting in firmer, younger-looking skin.

Explore how facial rejuvenation with Sculptra works below and why it is important to support your body’s collagen production process.

Why Is Collagen Important?

30% of the protein in your body is collagen. It gives your muscles, bones, connective tissues, and skin the structure, support, or strength they need to function. Collagen supports the function of fibroblasts that are responsible for developing new skin cells and connective tissue.

What Causes Loss of Collagen in the Face?

The collagen in your face and body gradually depletes as you get older. But other factors, including smoking, sun damage, stress, and lack of sleep, accelerate this process of decline. Collagen loss due to UV damage accounts for as much as 80% of the signs of facial aging.

How Does Sculptra Work?

Sculptra is an injectable treatment approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to gradually replenish lost collagen in the face for results that may last up to two years.

Sculptra directly addresses the underlying cause of facial aging compared to other treatments that only provide band-aid solutions. Because it works to rebuild collagen over time, Sculptra is an excellent option if you want a more youthful look but don’t want to give the impression that you’ve had any work done.

What Does Sculptra Treat?

Sculptra is FDA-approved to treat various areas of the face. You may benefit from Sculptra if you wish to correct any of the following:

  • Cheek wrinkles
  • Chin wrinkles
  • Smile lines
  • Marionette lines
