One of the primary reasons for visible facial aging is loss of collagen, a fibrous protein in the deep dermis that gives structure to skin and supports the functions of elastin and hyaluronic acid (HA). Elastin is an elastic protein that maintains skin shape, while HA cushions and lubricates to keep the skin hydrated. More collagen enables the presence of more elastin and HA.
As we age, the body slows collagen production in the mid- to late-20s.
By age 40, most people have up to 20% collagen loss.
SCULPTRA® Aesthetic works subtly and gradually over time for a more youthful-looking appearance. It helps stimulate your skin’s own natural collagen production to help restore its inner structure and increase facial volume that has been lost to aging.
