What Injectables Help Increase Collagen Production in the Face?

Featured Image

Injectable dermal fillers are exceptionally popular among men and women hoping to restore lost facial volume and plump up deflated or naturally thin features. With more filler products available than ever before, modern patients often wonder which filler is right for them. While each type of filler has its own set of unique characteristics and applications, many patients find that Sculptra® offers an exciting and versatile solution for addressing a wide variety of concerns simultaneously. Not only that, but Sculptra has the added benefit of boosting the body’s natural production of collagen for healthier, firmer, more youthful-looking skin. Here, you’ll discover more about the exciting improvements that are possible with Sculptra and other dermal fillers at Phillip Dauwe, M.D. Plastic Surgery, under the direction of board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Phillip Dauwe, in Dallas, TX.

How do fillers help improve your appearance?

Dermal filler injections — often referred to simply as “fillers” — can be used to make a range of improvements to both your face and body by restoring volume to features that have become hollow or deflated over time, smoothing out lines and facial folds, and enhancing naturally flat features. Some of the most common concerns that can be addressed with filler injections include:

  • Sunken cheeks
  • Thin lips
  • Circles under the eyes
  • Uneven jawline
  • Marionette lines
  • Nasolabial folds
  • Small breasts or buttocks
  • Aged hands

Certain fillers, including Sculptra, can also help to increase the natural production of collagen beneath the skin’s surface. Over time, this can give the treated area a firmer, softer, more supple appearance that keeps you looking younger and more refreshed.

Where can Sculptra be used to boost collagen production?

Sculptra is a versatile filler that can be injected into multiple areas of the face to address some of the most common signs of aging, though it can also help to correct naturally thin or asymmetric features. In either case, patients can enjoy the firmer, more youthful skin that Sculptra’s collagen-boosting properties help to create. Popular treatment areas for Sculptra fillers include:

  • Cheeks
  • Mid-face
  • Under the eyes
  • Around the nose and mouth
  • Nasolabial folds
  • Jawline
  • Chin

How long do Sculptra results last?

In many cases, Dr. Dauwe recommends that Sculptra injections be given over a series of appointments to create the most pleasing and longest-lasting results. When performed over the course of 3 – 4 months, Sculptra injections can create results that may last for up to two years, in part thanks to the continuing accumulation of collagen triggered by the treatment. When combined with a healthy skin care routine — including minimizing sun exposure — Sculptra fillers can offer a lasting solution for getting the firmer, smoother, younger appearance you desire.

Do any other fillers stimulate collagen production?

Sculptra is one of the most well-known fillers when it comes to products that help stimulate natural collagen production. If you are interested in additional options for collagen-boosting fillers, don’t hesitate to ask Dr. Dauwe or one of our knowledgeable aesthetic injectors, who will be happy to discuss your available filler options at length.
