How Sculptra® Helps Replace Lost Collagen
Collagen is a vital part of healthy and youthful skin. Find out how Sculptra® can give you back the collagen you’ve lost.

Did you know that you lose about 1% of collagen per year? Collagen is the protein that is most present in your body, and it’s able to provide strength and structure to your body’s cells. Collagen is also what gives elasticity to your skin. The more collagen your skin produces, the healthier it’s going to be and the younger it’s going to look.

Sculptra® is a great option for boosting collagen production while giving your skin a youthful glow, and Rebecca White, MBA, MSN, RN and the rest of our team offer it here at Becky Does Botox, with locations in Houston and Channelview, Texas. Read on to learn how Sculptra helps to replace lost collagen.

What is Sculptra?

Sculptra is an injectable cosmetic filler made up of poly-L-lactic acid, which can add volume to different areas of your face or body. 

As you age, your bones, muscles, and skin start to thin. This can lead to your skin taking on a sunken appearance. When Sculptra is injected into your skin, it’ll trigger your body to start regenerating new cells and creating new collagen. It’ll also offer extra support to the inner structure of your face.

What Sculptra can do for you

There are a number of benefits to getting Sculptra treatments, including the following:

  • Reduces lines and wrinkles
  • Improves skin contours 
  • Improves appearance of scars
  • Gives more facial volume
  • Revitalizes skin tissue
  • Reduces skin inflammation

Because this aesthetic procedure can help in all of these areas, it’ll be able to boost your self-confidence by giving you a youthful and glowing appearance.

It may take you a few months to see the full effects of Sculptra treatments since the injections encourage your body to produce the new collagen on its own. But a huge bonus is the fact that the final results you get should last you up to two years.

What to expect from a Sculptra treatment

When you come to Becky Does Botox for your Sculptra injections, you’ll get to relax in a comfortable chair while Becky gives you your treatments. Each injection only takes a minute or two, and you’ll be able to return to your normal routine after the procedure is over since there’s no downtime needed.

If you’re ready to have a younger-looking appearance, Sculptra can give that to you by generating new skin cells and collagen.
