Sculptra Injections

Your skin’s structure is mostly made from collagen, a specific type of protein that allows it to be flexible yet firm. About 80% of youthful skin’s volume is made from collagen, which decreases as you get older. Lost collagen is one of the largest contributors to aging, especially in the face. One of the ways to increase collagen is with Sculptra® injections, which we offer at MJR Dermatology in Lawrenceville, GA.

What Is Sculptra?

While Sculptra is often listed as a facial filler, it is very different from other filler injections. It does not add instant volume under the skin like hyaluronic acid fillers such as Juvéderm® or Restylane®. Sculptra’s main ingredient is poly-L-lactic acid, which acts as a collagen-inducing agent. When injected into the skin, Sculptra stimulates the production of new collagen. This can create thicker, firmer skin to reduce lines and wrinkles while creating a fuller, more youthful facial appearance.

Sculptra injections offer a more natural rejuvenation of the facial skin and tissues. Since the new volume is from your own collagen, there are no worries about it looking lumpy or unnatural. The difference in the skin takes time and most patients benefit from multiple treatments to obtain the desired results.

Collagen Induction Injections

Sculptra injections can be performed during a brief visit to our clinic in Lawrenceville, GA. The treatment is non-invasive, and you can return to your normal activities after your procedure. The results of Sculptra take a few weeks to occur as the body begins producing more collagen in the injected areas. To get the best outcome, patients should have at least two treatments scheduled 4-6 weeks apart.

Since Sculptra is not a filler that breaks down but a stimulator of new collagen, the results are long-lasting. Most patients can enjoy a more youthful appearance for 2-3 years from one series of Sculptra injections, but ongoing annual treatments can help maintain the results.

Over a few months, you can turn back the hands of time with skin rejuvenation from increased collagen with Sculptra injections.
