At Renuva MedSpa, we offer Sculptra® injections to help patients naturally reverse the aging process. This collagen-stimulating injectable naturally stimulates collagen and elastin production to restore youthful volume to both the face and the body, so patients can achieve different aging-related and cosmetic goals and enjoy long-term results.
Sculptra® is a biostimulator. Its active ingredient, Poly-L-lactic acid, stimulates natural collagen production and strengthens the skin’s foundational layers. Upon injection into the face or body, the active ingredient initiates a process that results in natural reactions by the body, leading to stronger, healthier, and younger-looking skin.
Beginning a treatment plan with this injectable has many benefits. This collagen-stimulating injectable is different from other hyaluronic acid-based products because it doesn’t just add immediate and temporary volume to the different areas of the face and body but instead forces the body to produce more collagen and elastin to naturally strengthen the skin and improve skin volume. Some of the treatment benefits include the following:
Sculptra® can address the most common signs of aging resulting from volume loss in the middle and lower half of the face. It provides an effective solution for minor, moderate, and more severe smile lines, including nasolabial folds that appear between the nose and the mouth.
It can also treat marionette lines that form on the outsides of the mouth and smooth wrinkles on the chin. Patients can expect to see improvements in the appearance of their problem areas within the first few weeks of undergoing the treatment and enjoy results for two years or longer.
On its own, Sculptra® is an effective injectable that can naturally restore collagen and elastin in different areas of the face and body. We can enhance the treatment results by pairing this injectable treatment with Morpheus8 treatments. Morpheus8 uses needling techniques and radiofrequency energy to stimulate natural collagen production, allowing us to target collagen loss from multiple angles.
We sometimes refer to Sculptra® as “the birthday shot.” We schedule yearly treatments with this collagen-stimulating injectable that can reverse aging in different ways. Every year after the age of 30, the body produces at least one percent less collagen annually. With the birthday shot, however, we can work against this natural result of aging and keep collagen production high.
During treatments, we typically administer one to two vials and inject them into specific areas of the face to address how aging has affected each patient’s appearance.
The best candidates for these injections are patients who want to address the root cause of volume loss to experience natural and long-lasting results. Some patients may not qualify for other cosmetic injectables but may be good candidates for this product and can use it to combat aging and achieve younger and healthier-looking skin naturally.
Additionally, patients who want to combat aging or enhance the results of Morpheus8 treatments and increase natural collagen production make good candidates for this injectable.
If you’re interested in learning more about this injectable treatment and how it can smooth lines, eliminate wrinkles, address facial folds, augment different body areas, and strengthen the skin, we can schedule an initial consultation. We will give you more details about this product, how it works, and how we can use it to address your concerns.
We will also give you more information about what type of results you can expect, any post-treatment care instructions, and how often you will need to schedule treatments to maintain your desired results long-term.
After your treatment, we will provide you with some aftercare instructions. You must avoid excess sun exposure to protect your skin and ensure optimal results. You will also be instructed to temporarily discontinue certain topical products and medications and avoid certain activities that could interfere with your results.
Patients can resume normal daily activities after their treatment is over and will experience results within the first few weeks of treatment as the body begins producing more collagen and elastin. Results can last two years or longer, and regular follow-up treatments will ensure that patients don’t experience any interruption in their anti-aging results.
Volume loss is most visible on the face, but it affects the body just the same. Over time, different body areas exhibit signs of aging, including skin laxity, wrinkles, and hollow areas. We can inject the right amount of Sculptra® into different areas to promote younger and healthier-looking skin.
At Renuva MedSpa, we offer a non-surgical BBL with this injectable, which enables patients to increase the natural volume of the buttocks and replicate the results of a Brazilian butt lift without requiring surgery or downtime. During the treatment, we will administer a specific amount of Sculptra® into the buttocks to naturally augment the area. This treatment can help patients naturally add volume to the buttocks without looking overdone or unnatural.
We can also use Sculptra® to treat cellulite by strengthening the skin’s structural layers and addressing cellulite at the source. Cellulite typically forms due to tight, fibrous bands that accentuate pockets of fat. As the skin weakens due to decreased collagen and elastin production and loses elasticity, cellulite becomes more prominent.
We can inject this collagen-stimulating product into areas of the body where cellulite has become more noticeable to help patients achieve visibly tighter and smoother-looking skin. This injectable can treat the root cause of cellulite and the accompanying textural irregularities at the source, resulting in naturally smoother skin.
Collagen loss is a normal part of the aging process, but that doesn’t mean you have to resign yourself to living with the different signs of aging. A customized treatment plan with this injectable can naturally reverse the signs of aging and strengthen your skin.
