As patients reach the age of 30, they begin to experience a reduction in their natural collagen production. Collagen is a protein that naturally occurs in the body and is the reason for youthful, supple skin. However, with the signs of aging, collagen is lost from the body. This result in increased skin laxity and the fine lines and wrinkles associated with aging skin. Patients who want to “age gracefully” can consider the benefits of injectables such as collagen stimulators.
Collagen stimulators are used to promote the production of collagen naturally in the body, which in turn improves the skin’s tone and texture. This provides a more youthful appearance.
At Seriously Skin, we provide two popular collagen stimulators: Radiesse and Sculptra.
Radiesse is both a filler and a collagen stimulator. It provides immediate and long-term results as collagen production is improved. Patients enjoy the results of one injection for approximately one year after their initial treatment. Maintenance injections are encouraged for long-term reduction of the signs of aging.
Sculptra is specifically used for collagen stimulation, and it can take some time to show optimum results. Patients must also visit their dermatologist for approximately three to four injections over the course of several months, but will notice improvement even after 25 months from the final injection.
Seriously Skin also offers a wide variety of neuromodulators such as Botox and Dysport and dermal fillers such as Juvéderm and Perlane. Many of these can be used in conjunction for optimum results. A consultation visit with our team can help patients determine the best combination of treatments to provide the expected results. Using collagen stimulators to provide long-term solutions is best for the health and wellbeing of the skin, and is often suggested for patients who want to enjoy less injections over the course of time.
