Curious How Much Collagen You've Lost?
Naturally healthy, glowing, younger-looking skin—that's the goal, right?
As we age, our body produces less collagen; the protein involved with skin strength and elasticity. Time causes this collagen to degrade, leading to the wrinkles we all associate with aging. Luckily all might not be lost. Find out below how Sculptra® can help rejuvenate your collagen.

What is Sculptra Aeshtethic?
Sculptra® Aesthetic is an FDA-approved injectable that helps gradually replace lost collagen—the most common protein in the body that is used to form a framework to support cell and tissue—for results that can last more than two years.*
80% of Sculptra® Aesthetic users were still satisfied with their treatment results 25 months after their last injection
Why Sculptra® Aesthetic?
Facial aging begins in your late 20’s when skin’s firmness starts decreasing as a result of genetics, natural aging (collagen degradation), and environmental factors, such as sun exposure, smoking and stress. Sculptra® Aesthetic is an injectable collagen stimulator that addresses the loss of collagen, an underlying cause of facial aging, to result in a more youthful appearance.
Sculptra® Aesthetic is made with an FDA-approved biocompatible, biodegradable synthetic material called poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) (i.e. the same material dissolvable sutures are made from). Unlike oral collagen powders and supplements which are minimally absorbed since they are broken down in the digestive track before they are put to use, Sculptra® Aesthetic can be used as a targeted therapy to address specific areas of the face and body that lack structure and volume.
How does it work?
Sculptra® Aesthetic works deep within the dermis to gradually stimulate your body to produce more of its own collagen. More collagen enables the presence of more elastin, which maintains skin shape, and Hyaluronic acid (HA) which cushions and lubricates to keep skin hydrated. As a result, Sculptra® Aesthetic helps restore skin’s inner structure, correcting shallow to deep facial wrinkles and folds and restoring the look of fullness between the nose and mouth (nasolabial folds) or smile lines, marionette lines, and chin wrinkles.
what's the injectable process like?
The entire treatment takes approximately 30 minutes and for the vast majority of patients, there is no downtime. Some minor swelling and bruising can occur however, as with all other facial injectables. However, since Sculptra® Aesthetic is placed so deep within the skin, where it is designed to mimic bone, most patients find this treatment results in less pain and bruising than other options.
Post treatment, you will be advised to massage the treatment area for five minutes, five times per day, for five days (think 5-5-5). Massaging is critical to helping the PLLA integrate properly into the tissue without leaving any lumps or bumps under the skin.
