Typically, we lose about 1% of our collagen each and every year- a loss which becomes more and more noticeable as we age. Collagen is a fibrous protein in the deep dermis that gives skin structure and supports the functions of elastin and hyaluronic acid (HA), which helps maintain the skin’s shape, while keeping it smooth and hydrated. A healthy supply of collagen makes for a more youthful-looking complexion. Sculptra 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 cells and tissue. 

With traditional Dermal Fillers, a substance (usually hyaluronic acid) is used to directly add volume to the tissue for instant results. Sculptra stimulates your body to produce its own natural collagen, and works gradually over time. With each treatment your skin will grow thicker to the areas in which Sculptra was injected. A good analogy is to think of it as though you’re adding fertilizer to plants that you want to grow.  The fertilizer being the Sculptra, which contains the micro particles of poly-L-lactic acid, to encourage growth in your skin’s foundational layers. This is why Sculptra needs to be massaged after treatment, because you want to spread the seeds, or micro-particles evenly. In recent months, Sculptra has also been FDA approved to address specific concerns affected by volume loss including cheek wrinkles and jawline laxity. The FDA has also approved Sculptra to address “skin glow”- with many of our patients reporting a “lit from within” look post-Sculptra treatment.
