Producing Collagen with Sculptra and Ultherapy
Producing Collagen with Sculptra and Ultherapy: the ultimate combo
We age in many different ways. The 2 most common ways are losing elasticity and losing volume. If we could increase the amount of collagen under the skin that diminishes as we get older, we would sag and lose volume at a slower rate and even reverse aging.
When we lose elasticity, our skin stretches; we have different names for it such as sagging, jowling, turkey neck, etc. Retightening the skin can improve the overall appearance. Ultherapy is a technology that tightens and lifts skin by producing collagen as a result of the treatment. It doesn’t give surgical results, but, it does provide 30-40% of what a surgical tightening procedure can produce. The treatment usually only has to be performed once. There is no cutting, injections, bruising, redness, or swelling with the treatment which accounts for its popularity. It has been around 8 years, longer than most other nonsurgical tightening procedures, and increases in popularity every year.
When we lose volume, our face looks deflated; this also has different names like smile lines, dark circles, hollowed cheeks, etc. Adding volume restores the highlights our face use to have. Sculptra, much like Ultherapy, creates volume and lifting by producing collagen as a result of the treatment. Most people need 2-3 treatments over 2-3 months, but once they finish the series of injections, the results last 2-5 years, much like Ultherapy.
Sculptra and Ultherapy provide a revolutionary combo because the treatments are producing collagen below the skin where we lose it. Both treatments are appealing because there is very little downtime with each treatment, they provide natural lifting and volumization, and both treatments provide results over 3-4 months (since it takes our bodies that much time to produce collagen) so the results are gradual instead of overnight which many people like.
