Boost Natural Collagen with Sculptra

At Wellness for Life, we take a personalized approach to your care with the goal of helping you feel and look your best from the inside out. Our Aesthetic Nurse Injectors aim to work closely with you to create a customized plan to help you reach your goals, utilizing tools on the cutting edge of aesthetic science, like Sculptra.

Sculptra is a biostimulatory injectable that goes beyond adding volume. Unlike other wrinkle treatments, Sculptra helps stimulate your own natural collagen production to smooth wrinkles, and improve skin tightness.

The Science of Collagen and Aging

What is Collagen?

Collagen, a fundamental protein for maintaining skin structure, undergoes a natural decline with the passage of time, contributing to the emergence of wrinkles and sagging. By the age of 40, a significant 20% reduction in our natural collagen may have occurred.

How does Sculptra work?

Sculptra, boasting poly-L-lactic acid, acts as a supportive framework, gently encouraging the resurgence of natural collagen. Studies indicate a noteworthy 66.5% increase in Type 1 collagen after a mere three months. 

Operating beneath the skin's surface, Sculptra orchestrates a gradual rebuilding of collagen strands. This process aids in the reduction of wrinkles and folds, offering a nuanced and enduring enhancement.

What you need to know before your Sculptra appointment

How long do Sculptra results last?

Sculptra stands as a pioneer among injectable collagen stimulators, facilitating the restoration of facial skin structure for sustained improvement.

You’re likely to witness results as early as one month after your appointment, and the benefits don’t stop there. The positive effects of Sculptra persist for up to two years.

How many times should I get Sculptra?

To give you your best results, we require at least 3 sessions spaced 3-4 weeks apart. This ensures you receive the maximum benefits from Sculptra.
