Feeling great about how you look can boost your confidence and help you in ways you may never have expected. Professionally, socially, and in every realm of your life, when you feel good about your appearance you interact with the world differently—and the impact is almost always positive.
The highly trained expert providers at Valencia Medical Center want you to live a healthy life, and that includes having confidence about how you look. We offer numerous anti-aging and aesthetics services, including Sculptra injections. Here, we discuss how Sculptra can be used, as well as why we offer it in our practice.
Collagen is a protein. In fact, it’s the most abundant protein in your body. Connective tissue, bones, muscles, tendons, cartilage, and yes, skin all need collagen to be healthy. Your skin is stronger and more elastic thanks in large part to collagen.
Beginning much younger than most people realize, at about the age of 20, your body starts producing less collagen. Along with naturally declining collagen production, exposure to the sun, lack of sleep, smoking, and drinking alcohol also impact how much collagen you have. What begins as a tightly organized network of fibers keeping you skin taut and smooth slowly becomes unorganized and unstructured.
Sculptra doesn’t just serve as a filler. Instead, it stimulates your body to produce more collagen, which is one of the biggest differences between it and other fillers. Your own naturally produced collagen improves the overall quality of your skin, giving you a smoother jawline, and a glow that can’t really be duplicated with other methods.
If you have fine lines, wrinkles, a dulled complexion, sagging skin, or even wrinkles on your elbows or knees that bother you, Sculptra may be the right solution. Anywhere you need volume restored, Sculptra can help.
We can even use Sculptra to increase the appearance of muscle definition in your biceps, thighs, chest or other muscle groups. Tightening lax skin and stimulating cell growth can improve the contours of your face and your body.
One of the things that our patients like most about Sculptra is that it lasts longer than most other injectables. You can expect to see your full results about a month after your treatment, and for the look to last up to two years. That’s right—your skin will still be glowing and looking great two years after your injections.
If you’re thinking Sculptra could be right for you, schedule an appointment with us at Valencia Medical Center. We’re always happy to answer your questions and provide an evaluation and recommendations to help you reach your goals.
