Discover the treatment that activates your skin's natural power to help revitalize collagen production for a more youthful-looking appearance.
What is Sculptra® Aesthetic?
Sculptra® Aesthetic is an FDA-approved injectable that subtly restores facial volume by replenishing lost collagen and activating the skin's regenerative process.
What exactly is collagen & why do I need it?
Collagen is a strong, flexible fibrous type of protein that is found throughout our bodies, including our bones, muscles, tendons and in the middle or dermis layer of the skin. Under a microscope, collagen looks like bands of rope bound together or stacked logs. It acts as skin’s support structure or scaffolding that helps maintain skin’s shape1. In fact, 70% of our skin is composed of collagen.
As we age, our body’s collagen production decreases. The cells in our body that produce collagen, called fibroblasts, are no longer able to produce it as efficiently as they once did, and existing collagen becomes fragmented, bent and frayed.
Age-related collagen loss weakens the skin’s inner structure, reducing its ability to maintain elasticity and moisture. Gradually, skin loses its youthful bounce, leading to lines, wrinkles, and folds, as well as a loss of skin volume and support.
