Stimulate Collagen Production with Sculptra Injections in Denver, CO

We might not be able to stop the aging process, but we’ve found solutions that slow it down and even reverse the signs. You know how most dermal fillers work — as their name implies, they “fill” in the space where injected, pushing the skin back upwards or adding volume to areas where natural collagen has been lost.

Sculptra is different; it’s a type of filler that goes into the deeper layers of the skin, replenishing collagen to reverse the signs of aging. Sculptra is the first non-surgical facial injectable that gives you subtle results that build on each other. This makes for a natural-looking appearance that improves over time, not an instant change, as with other fillers.

At Always Beautiful Medspa, we offer a long-lasting boost in collagen production. Made from poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), which works within the skin to replace lost collagen production, Sculptra treatments are injected in three sessions over three to four months for the best results. These results can then last for two years!

Benefits of Sculptra

Safely Reduce Fine Lines and Wrinkles

Sculptra is a non-surgical solution that is effective for treating fairly deep lines and creases. Sculptra is a great, long-lasting solution if you have the typical lines that form around the mouth and from the nose to the mouth.

Many patients choose Sculptra injections to treat areas around the mouth, such as:

  • Marionette lines (extending downward from the corners of your mouth)
  • Parentheses lines (framing both sides of your mouth)
  • Nasolabial folds (running from your nose down to the corners of your mouth, also called smile lines)
  • Chin wrinkles

Stimulate Collagen Production for a Youthful Appearance

Collagen is the key to younger-looking skin. Collagen is a fibrous protein that provides the structural framework for our skin. It exists primarily in the dermis layer, the skin’s second layer beneath the epidermis.

The problem is after our 20th birthday our body produces one additional percentage point less collagen every year moving forward. By the time we turn 50, our body is now producing almost one third less collagen. That’s why our older skin is prone to areas of volume loss and the development of wrinkles and lines.

How Sculptra Works

At Always Beautiful, Ali McCoy Stengel, LME, RN, BSN, handles all our injectables. She injects Sculptra into the deep dermal layer of the skin. This is the base of the skin’s second layer.

Sculptra vs. Traditional Dermal Fillers

Unlike typical dermal fillers, Sculptra requires more than a single session: it is injected in three sessions over the course of three to four months. Like typical fillers, Sculptra’s gel initially provides volume where injected, pushing the depressed area back upward, but this is only temporary.

After a week or so, the wrinkle can re-form to a lesser degree, but this is when Sculptra really gets to work. Microparticles of PLLA work within the deep dermis to rebuild lost collagen and provide structural skin support. As the PLLA is absorbed, a collagen framework is created. This reinforced collagen structure provides a foundation that gradually restores the look of fullness to shallow to deep wrinkles and folds.

Sculptra FAQ

How Long Will My Results Last With Sculptra?

This new collagen framework described above provides results that last up to two years, about twice as long as most other fillers.

How Is Sculptra Different From Other Dermal Fillers?

Sculptra is categorized as a “synthetic” filler because of its poly-L-lactic acid microparticles. Fillers such as Juvederm and Restylane are categorized as “natural” fillers because they are made primarily of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the body that is responsible for plumping and hydrating the skin. When these fillers are injected beneath a wrinkle, the hyaluronic acid binds with nearby water molecules and instantly plumps the skin, erasing the wrinkle. This is a more ephemeral treatment, as these fillers do not encourage new collagen production. When the body eventually absorbs the hyaluronic acid in 9-12 months (the duration of most fillers), the wrinkle or crease will return.

Sculptra provides results for up to two years because the PLLA microparticles stimulate the body to produce new collagen in the areas of the injections. Once injected, the body begins to absorb the PLLA, and this triggers new collagen to be produced. These new collagen strands gradually restore facial volume naturally, and the wrinkles and folds are erased or dramatically lessened in appearance.

What Are The Side Effects Of Sculptra?

The most common side effects with Sculptra are similar to those with any dermal filler:

  • Redness
  • Swelling
  • Tenderness
  • Bruising
  • Slight Bleeding
  • Itching
  • Formation of small lumps

All of these issues pass quickly. PLLA is a biocompatible, biodegradable substance that the body accepts. Still, if you have numerous allergies, you should check with Ali McCoy Stengel and she’ll share with you Sculptra’s ingredient list.
