Collagen is a protein produced by our cells that supports the skin, keeping it looking younger and giving it firmness and fullness. After the age of 20, our body begins to slowly deplete collagen.
Biostimulator (Sculptra) is unique and completely different to traditional HA fillers. It contains poly L-lactic acid and acts by stimulating the body's ability to produce collagen within the deep dermis gradually over 4-6 weeks. It restores the deep, underlying structure of the skin to diminish facial wrinkles and revitalises facial volume with natural looking results that are maintained for many years after treatment. It’s used to correct (shallow to deep) facial wrinkles and folds in areas such as smile lines, marionette lines and chin wrinkles.
What to expect from your treatment.
On the day of treatment, your face will appear a little fuller. This fullness will diminish over the next 48 hours, as the liquid is absorbed, leaving the PLLA molecules to start working. Over the next 4-6 weeks, the collagen levels will be stimulated, and the results gradually appearing. Your results will then be reviewed, and another treatment may be recommended to continue your results.
Results of Biostimulator include:
Replenishment of lost facial volume
Improvement in skin integrity, due to better absorption of elastin and Hyaluronic Acid
Improvement in skin texture
The results are extremely natural, and last an average of 2 years.
