While the first fine wrinkles usually appear in the thirties, the actual ageing of the skin starts much earlier. From the age of 25, our skin stops producing new collagen. As the main component of connective tissue, collagen provides firmness and elasticity to the skin, and as the supply continues to decline, signs of ageing begin to appear.
At mySkin Dermatology Mallorca, we use collagen inducers (biostimulators) to stimulate the fibroblasts that produce collagen. Sculptra® is one of the leading biostimulines on the market and has been shown to help reactivate collagen production. Importantly, the earlier you start treatment, the slower your skin will age.
Sculptra® is perfect for
Sculptra® is designed for use on the entire face. The biostimulant activates the skin’s own processes to give you an all-round fresher, younger look. Thanks to the gentle application and all the precautions we take, the treatment is painless.
Along with the hands, the neck is considered to be one of the most age revealing areas. With Sculptra® treatment, you no longer need to hide it. The signs of age will fade and you will be able to wear eye-catching and flattering neck jewellery again with confidence and, above all, with pleasure.
Most common symptoms
Loss of volume
Sunken areas of the face, such as the temples or cheeks, are excellent to treat with PLLA. By activating collagen production, the tissue regenerates, resulting in a beautiful, natural facial shape.
Pronounced marionette and other deep wrinkles can be treated with Sculptra®. Here too, the natural volume build-up and tissue tightening provide a significant visual rejuvenation of the skin areas.
As we age, our tissues sag due to a lack of collagen and elastin. To boost production again, we recommend a treatment with Sculptra. Due to the body’s own production, all facial features and naturalness are preserved. What changes is your estimated age.
Advantages of the treatment
Hyaluronic filler vs. Sculptra®
A major advantage of Sculptra® is that it stimulates the skin’s own collagen production. Conventional hyaluron fillers, on the other hand, work by artificially padding the affected areas. With our treatment, we treat the cause of the signs of ageing and do not conceal them. This ensures a natural appearance and a generally better skin texture.
Tissue tightening instead of volume
Another advantage of biostimulators is that they don’t apply anything, but rather set the body’s own processes in motion. Thus, a treatment with Sculptra® provides tissue tightening and more elasticity and does not build up any additional volume.
Sculptra® is a biostimulant based on poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA). This has been used for many years in aesthetic surgery, for example in thread lifts or implants.
Zhe product is injected into the upper layers of the skin and stimulates fibroblasts, which are responsible for collagen production. Sculptra® treatment restores elasticity and bounce to your skin, giving you a naturally younger look and many compliments.
The cost of the treatment is between €500 and €1000, depending on the size of the area to be treated.
