When it comes to collagen restoration, Sculptra in Louisville is a popular treatment for beauty seekers who wish to replenish the skin’s natural collagen that diminishes as we age. Think of collagen as one of the main building blocks of your skin. Not only is this powerhouse protein a major component of your bones, muscles, tendons, ligaments, and hair, but collagen is also what helps keep your skin looking firm and youthful.
Unfortunately, your body’s ability to produce collagen starts to dwindle as the years creep on by – even beginning as early as your mid-20s. The results often manifest in the formation of fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin. With this year quickly drawing to a close, perhaps your resolution involves feeling better about yourself in the new year? If so, injections with Sculptra in Louisville may be just the ticket to fulfill that goal.
How does Sculptra in Louisville work?
Sculptra® Aesthetic is an FDA-approved injectable designed to gradually replace lost collagen in the skin. It’s injected directly into the area where collagen restoration is desired to achieve that youthful look so many people desire. Sculptra then works to gradually boost collagen in the weeks and months following injections.
To put it scientifically, Sculptra is made with biodegradable, biocompatible, synthetic substance called poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA). When injected deep into the dermis by a trained professional, strands of collagen begin to gradually provide renewed structure to your skin. Over time, the PLLA continues to help reproduce lost collagen in the body, resulting in nasolabial folds and other skin wrinkles being reduced or even totally eliminated temporarily.
The gradualness of this process is what promotes more natural-looking results, which means no one will know you’ve had any work done…but they’ll sure take notice of the results and wonder what your secret is!
What about collagen creams or supplements for producing similar results?
While many collagen products can indeed provide some modest benefits, most are minimal at best. Since collagen molecules are too large to effectively penetrate the dermis, many collagen creams available on the market tend to have minimal impact. Dietary supplements have certain limitations as well due to collagen being a protein that can be broken down in the digestive tract. So when more noticeable, lasting results are in order to meet your individual beauty goals, that’s where Sculptra in Louisville can really rise to the challenge!
How many Sculptra injections will I need for best results?
On average, Sculptra in Louisville is administered in a series of three injections over the course of three to four months. Additional treatments may be deemed necessary for some patients, depending on the individual degree of diminshed collagen. Since each treatment takes only a few minutes to administer, you’re free to resume your daily activities once injections are complete.
