What is New at Touch MedSpa?! Sculptra!

Here at Touch MedSpa, we are constantly working to bring the best services to meet our patients needs. We are so excited for our newest treatment! It will activate your skin’s natural power to help revitalize collagen production for a more youthful-looking appearance. What exactly it is? It is Sculptra Aesthetic!

What is Sculptra Aesthetic?

It is an FDA-approved injectable that helps gradually replace lost collagen, which is the most common protein in the body that is used to form a framework to support cells and tissues. It has been used worldwide since 1999!

Why Sculptra Aesthetic?

Sculptra Aesthetic addresses an underlying cause of facial aging, not just the symptoms! Results appear gradually and can last up to two years. The treatment regimen is typically three injections over the course of three or four months. Individual results and treatment sessions may vary, depending on how much collagen has been lost.

How Does Sculptra Work?

As a poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA; gradually and naturally absorbed by the body) collagen stimulator, Sculptra Aesthetic helps restore the deep underlying structure of the skin to diminish facial wrinkles. Sculptra works with your body to help rebuild lost collagen and helps restore your skin’s inner structure and volume. As the PLLA microparticles are absorbed, they help stimulate collagen production. This helps to restore facial volume and the look of fullness to wrinkles and folds over time. 

How much Collagen Have you Lost?

You lose about 1% of collagen per year! By age 45, you face up to 25% of collagen loss.

Are there any Side Effects?

In a clinical trial, the most reported side effects after treatment were:

  • Redness
  • Swelling
  • Tenderness
  • Injection site pain
  • Bruising
  • Bleeding
  • Itching and lumps
