Plano Sculptra

All I want for Christmas is collagen!
Lucky for me, U. Med Spa is now offering Sculptra, the best injectable treatment for stimulating collagen production.

Special cells called fibroblasts produce collagen, the main structural component of the skin. Collagen makes up 70% of dry skin mass and is what gives our skin firmness, strength, and elasticity.

Collagen levels start to decline as early as our thirties, which is why you might have noticed the first signs of aging around your thirtieth birthday.

Our fibroblasts start to age and as a result, collagen production slows down. Collagen fibers also become weakened and frayed and the collagen fibers that used to be organized in parallel bands start to arrange themselves in a jumbled, disarrayed mess, causing our skin to look wrinkled, saggy, and old.

Sculptra is a cosmetic injectable made from poly-L-lactic acid which is a natural substance found in the human body.  Sculptra stimulates the production of new collagen to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and folds, add volume to thinning skin, and to restore definition to the face.

How is Sculptra different from other cosmetic injectables?

Sculptra is a collagen stimulator, not a facial filler. When Sculptra microcrystals are injected into the skin, a mild inflammatory response occurs, causing white blood cells to surround the Sculptra particles.  This inflammatory response induces our friendly fibroblasts to start producing collagen.

Sculptra is not an immediate filler.  Results are seen gradually and the volumizing results of Sculptra become apparent four to six weeks after treatment.

The results of Sculptra are incredibly natural looking and long-lasting.  In fact, Sculptra lasts longer than any other cosmetic injectable, up to two years or more!

For optimal results, most people will want two or more treatments, spaced four weeks apart. As a general rule, a woman in her forties will need two vials, and an additional two vials will be needed for each decade of life after that.

After two years, only small touch-ups will be required to maintain results.

There is little to no downtime after receiving a Sculptra treatment and most people are able to return immediately to their normal activities.  There may be redness or swelling at the injections sites but these effects fade quickly.

Tell Santa that all you want for Christmas is collagen because U. Med Spa is offering two vials of Sculptra for only $999 (regularly $1500) until December 31st!
