Sculptra San Diego, CA
If you haven’t heard of Sculptra, you’re in for a treat! Sculptra is an injectable that works to restore collagen and support to the skin. Collagen is the most abundant protein in your skin and is essential to supporting the connective tissue.
Sculptra contains Poly-L-lactic acid micro-crystals which slowly absorb and get replaced with collagen. The stimulation of collagen gradually restores facial volume, wrinkles, and folds.
SCULPTRA TREATMENT BEFORE & AFTER
Sculptra starts the process of building collagen over the course of several weeks, and results can last up to 2 years. Best results are seen after 3 treatments spaced 4 weeks apart.
Collagen is the most important structural protein in the skin which supports connective tissue and maintains skin thickness. By age 25 the average person has begun losing 1% of their skin’s collagen per year. By age 40 some people have lost nearly 25% of their total collagen, and this accelerates to 1.5% loss each year after that. The skin then becomes thinner, drier, and less elastic which contributes to visible signs of aging.
