Collagen loss may be a leading and natural cause of age-related skin changes like fine lines and wrinkles, increased laxity (skin sag), and volume loss (facial deflation), but you don’t have to live with it.
At Natural Obsession Aesthetics in Kingwood, Texas, Brittney Gast, RN, BSN, and our skilled team have the perfect solution: Sculptra®, the FDA-approved injectable that works with your body to help rebuild lost collagen, smooth deep wrinkles, and restore lost facial volume for up to two years.
Learn how it works — and find out what it can do for you.
Beneath every luminous, youthful-looking complexion, there’s an underlying scaffold of strong and resilient skin proteins. The most important and abundant protein in your deepest dermal layers — the one that gives your skin tissue its natural tensile strength and inherent elasticity — is collagen.
Collagen has been called the quintessential matrix for skin due to its rigidity and resistance to stretching. It also works in conjunction with other important skin proteins such as keratin and elastin to ensure dermal tissue maintains its shape and stays smooth and supple.
Collagen is plentiful in young, healthy skin. The average 20-year-old has a brimming “collagen reservoir” that’s 100% full. With each passing birthday, however, everyone’s collagen levels decline a little; you can expect your skin to lose about 1% of its collagen structures every year.
While it may not sound like much, it definitely adds up: the average 45-year-old has 25% less collagen than they did when they were 20 years old.
Sculptra is a top-quality, FDA-approved dermal filler that’s designed to enhance your natural facial contours and smooth out deep lines, creases, and wrinkles to effectively reverse some of the most noticeable signs of aging.
Sculptra’s success lies in its main ingredient: Poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), a biocompatible, biodegradable, synthetic material that’s gradually and naturally absorbed by your body. PLLA is a potent collagen stimulator that steadily releases its microparticles into your deep dermal tissues, prompting your skin cells to ramp up their collagen production.
In other words, Sculptra harnesses your skin’s very own antiaging mechanism — its collagen production potential — and gives it a major, long-lasting boost. In this way, Sculptra works with your body to actively restore your skin’s inner structure and volume, erasing fine lines and smoothing deep wrinkles along the way.
With just a few tiny, well-placed injections, Sculptra gets to work immediately. Natural-looking, beautifully subtle results are noticeable within two weeks of treatment, with improving results for several months as your skin’s collagen remodeling process kicks into high gear.
Our team at Natural Obsession Aesthetics can use Sculptra to correct shallow to deep facial wrinkles and contour deficiencies with excellent, long-lasting results.
Sculptra is commonly used to improve the appearance of smile lines, or the vertical lines that extend from the sides of your nose and around your mouth. This includes the creases that extend from the edge of the nose to the outer corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds), as well as the wrinkles that extend from the corners of your mouth to your chin (marionette lines).
Depending on your skin assessment and aesthetic goals, your Sculptra treatment regimen may include up to four injection sessions, with each session scheduled 3-4 weeks apart.
Following your final session, Sculptra continues stimulating your skin’s deep collagen response for many months, leaving you with smoother, younger-looking skin for up to two years.
With zero downtime and near-immediate results that last, it’s easy to say yes to Sculptra.
