From creams to lasers to injectables, there is no shortage of treatments that offer results of youthful and healthy skin. However, while many of these treatments provide desirable results, many of them only offer surface-level results, which may not be what you are genuinely interested in. To truly treat the underlying causes of wrinkles and fine lines and to provide full facial rejuvenation, your treatment needs to go deeper. A large portion of your visible aging is due to the breakdown of collagen and elastin in your skin, so why not find a treatment that stimulates collagen and reverses those signs of aging? Dr. Austin and his team are proud to offer Sculptra® Aesthetic as a treatment option for facial wrinkling and facial volume loss.
What Is Sculptra® Aesthetic?
Sculptra® Aesthetic is an injectable that treats the signs of aging by working deep within the dermis to stimulate the production of collagen. Collagen is a vital fibrous protein found in our connective tissues, which provides the strength and flexibility of our skin. Unfortunately, collagen production lessens with each year that we age, and this leads to thinner and drier skin that is more prone to wrinkling.
By stimulating collagen production, even after the substance is absorbed into your body, your body’s natural collagen will take over and fill the spaces that Sculptra® Aesthetic once filled. Sculptra® Aesthetic treats the skin from the inside out, leaving you looking young and feeling rejuvenated.
With no downtime, Sculptra® Aesthetic can lessen and reverse the signs of aging to the nasolabial folds (the parentheses-like wrinkles that run from the corners of the nose to the outsides of the lips), marionette lines, and chin wrinkles. Additionally, results can last up to two years. And since the goal of Sculptra® Aesthetic is to rebuild and restore collagen, results last longer than many other injectable fillers.
Why Choose Sculptra® Aesthetic?
Dr. Austin understands the importance of treating the underlying causes of facial aging, such as wrinkles and facial volume loss. While beauty may only be on the surface, the building blocks of healthy skin go much deeper, and Sculptra® Aesthetic allows you to achieve the youthful and natural-looking results you desire.
