Our bodies are complicated machines. Curing what ails us or improving things that bother us about our physical health or appearance can be equally complicated. Sometimes, genuinely effective solutions can’t be found. Other times, however, the answer to the question “What can I do to fix this?” stares us right in the face. Such is the case with improving the overall texture, shape, health, and appearance of our faces. If that is your goal, the most fundamental way to help you achieve it is to increase the amount of collagen in your body. An if you want to stimulate facial collagen, Sculptra is the way to do it.
Why Does Collagen Matter?
Collagen, the most abundant protein our bodies produce, can be found in tendons, fat, and ligaments, as well as in our skin. Like all proteins, collagen is comprised of amino acids which play a critical role in repairing damaged body tissues, making them particularly beneficial to skin health. By boosting the amount of amino acids, your body will be better able to combat premature signs of aging by fortifying the skin and underlying connective tissues.
But like so many other things about our bodies that slow down as we age, our ability to produce collagen decreases, leaving us increasingly susceptible to wrinkles, lines, and other skin imperfections.
Fortunately, science has supplied a way to kickstart and enhance the body’s natural collagen production process. At Dr. Mariano Busso’s Miami/Coconut Grove aesthetic dermatology clinic, we have helped thousands of patients jumpstart their collagen production using Sculptra and other dermal filler treatments; a safe, effective, and proven way to get a vibrant, youthful-looking face.
How Sculptra Stimulates Collagen Production
Sculptra is an injectable dermal filler made of an alpha hydroxyl acid called poly-L-lactic acid, or PLLA, which is safe, synthetic, biocompatible, biodegradable, and long-lasting.
Sculptra restores facial fat lost to the effects of lipoatrophy, which is the localized loss of fat tissue. This loss can result in sunken cheeks, hollow eyes, and other indentations. Fillers like Sculptra work by attracting water to the injection site and stimulating collagen production at and around the treatment area. In combination with the filler itself, this uptick in collagen production increases volume under the skin, stretching the skin and reducing and fading wrinkles.
