Sculptra for collagen-rich youthful skin
You may know that one of the main reasons for the aging of our skin is the breakdown of collagen, the protein that holds skin cells together. Collagen can be taken from outside, in the form of topical creams or dietary supplements, but are they effective? Maybe not so much; collagen molecules are too large to penetrate the skin when applied from outside while in supplements, it may be broken down during digestion.
Enter Sculptra, the injectable filler containing poly-L-lactic acid that works by stimulating the body to produce natural collagen! This ensures that the improvement is gradual and looks natural; no drastic makeovers here. Three injection sessions over a few months ensure reduced lines, smoother skin, and improved texture over the course of six months to a year with the results lasting up to two years.
Sculptra is generally used on the face to address issues like the appearance of lines and wrinkles, loss of high cheekbones and jawline, and the hollowing of temples, but it works just as well on the chest.
