Not all treatments or injectables are created the same. Some target different areas of the face, and, more importantly, produce different effects. Traditional collagen creams purport to deliver collagen that is absorbed by the skin. However, collagen molecules are too large to penetrate the dermis. So, in actuality, most of these treatments include vitamins and hold moisture, making them suitable moisturizers that can briefly improve skin’s appearance. Collagen dietary supplements are meant to facilitate the production of collagen within the body. However, collagen is a protein that, when ingested, is broken down by the digestive system. Results for these types of treatments are inconclusive. Toxins work by temporarily weakening muscles, typically in the forehead, to minimize frown lines. Results appear within a couple days and can last up to a couple months.
Sculptra Aesthetic is used to stimulate collagen growth which helps to restore facial volume and the look of fullness to wrinkles and folds over time. Results appear gradually over the treatment regime (typically three injections over the course of three to four months) and can last up to two years.
Sculptra Aesthetic is made with biocompatible, biodegradable, synthetic material which is gradually and naturally absorbed by the body and helps to rebuild lost collagen through a series of treatments administered by our trained specialists.
Our doctor at Salveo Naturopathic Skin Care Clinic injects the treatment within the deep dermis, where strands of collagen support your skin’s structure. Over time, Sculptra Aesthetic helps the body reproduce lost collagen. On average, three injection appointments are needed over a period of a few months. The number of injection appointments and the number of injections per appointment vary from person to person, depending on how much collagen has been lost.
