If your face has lost volume due to aging, it’s probably the result of a decline in collagen. The skin needs collagen to remain strong and elastic, and it starts to sag and lose volume without it. Are you wondering- how can I lift my skin and grow more collagen? Sculptra aesthetic may be the answer you’re looking for.
How can I lift my skin and grow more collagen?
Most people know that dermal fillers can fill in facial lines and wrinkles, but Sculptra Aesthetic is a unique filler that also lifts the skin, and promotes collagen formation.
Sculptra is a cosmetic injectable that is approved for correcting deep nasolabial folds, and other facial wrinkles. It also adds volume to the face, as it restores youthful contours. Sculptra is made from poly-L-lactic acid, which is a synthetic, biocompatible substance that helps to restore lost collagen in the skin.
How Sculptra lifts the skin and grows more collagen
Sculptra is a collagen stimulator and also acts as a volumizer. After being injected into the skin, the micro-particles of poly-L-lactic acid are gradually absorbed by the body, and are eventually replaced with new collagen. The increased collagen makes the skin smoother, firmer, and more youthful.
Sculptra also thickens the skin, and when placed strategicallyit restores fullness and gives the face a subtle lift. It typically takes 2-3 treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart to achieve maximum results.
Swelling, bruising, pain, redness, and tenderness are common side effects after Sculptra treatment, but generally resolve quickly.
Sculptra produces natural-looking facial rejuvenation results that can last up to 2 years.
