Sculptra & Ellansé Collagen Stimulators

Collagen is one of the important support structures of your skin that helps maintain its tightness, elasticity and suppleness. As you age your skin gradually loses its natural collagen, leading to a reduction in facial volume which results in skin laxity and the formation of wrinkles, lines and folds.

Collagen stimulators are biocompatible and biodegradable treatments that contain Poly-L-lactic acid, which naturally stimulate your body's cells to produce your own natural collagen to restore facial volume. By restoring facial volume your sagging skin is lifted resulting in a reduction in your wrinkles, lines and folds.
