Collagen loss is a primary factor in facial aging. Collagen is the fibrous protein in the dermis (the deep layer under the surface of the skin) that provides structure and supports the functions of elastin and hyaluronic acid. As we grow older, collagen production decreases, which can lead to wrinkles, folds, and skin laxity.
The body slowly decreases collagen production throughout adult life. By age 50, many people can expect to experience 30 percent collagen loss. At Dermaworks, we offer our Ottawa Sculptra treatment with poly-L-lactic acid to help restore lost collagen and a more youthful facial appearance.
Sculptra Aesthetic is an injectable product approved by the FDA for gradually replacing lost collagen, with results that can last up to two years, or longer. This innovative injectable is a poly-L-lactic acid collagen stimulator that is injected into the dermis. It works with the body by promoting collagen production to reduce the signs of aging.
When Sculptra is injected under the skin, poly-L-lactic acid microparticles are absorbed in the dermis to help stimulate collagen growth. Over time, rebuilt collagen strands begin to gradually restore lost facial volume and soften facial wrinkles and folds.
Our Ottawa Sculptra injections are administered in a series of treatment sessions – typically three sessions over a period of a few months. The number of treatment sessions and the number injections performed in each session will vary, depending on collagen content and quality of the skin.
Sculptra is designed to correct shallow to deep wrinkles and folds of the face. At Dermaworks in Ottawa, we skillfully perform Sculptra injections to treat:
Loss of fat volume and collagen in the face can lead to a hollow look under the eyes, a sunken appearance of the cheeks, and thinning lips that have lost their definition. Treatment with Sculptra stimulates collagen production to restore volume and definition to the face.
Sculptra a safe, FDA-approved treatment with minimal side effects. No allergy testing is needed before treatment, as the product contains no human or animal components. After a Sculptra treatment session, you may experience redness, bruising, tenderness, or swelling at the injection sites, which should subside in a few days.
There is little or no downtime with Sculptra.
Patients choose Sculptra to achieve a subtle but significantly refreshed appearance of the face.
