Collagen is one of the most abundant proteins in the body. It makes up around 75 percent of our skin. There are several types of collagen and out of these types, type 1 and type 3 are most prevalent in the health and resilience of the skin. Type 1 is the main structural component of the skin, where type 3 plays an important role in healing and repair. Therefore, it’s no wonder that as the ageing process takes its toll and collagen depletes, that we can start to see the effects of this, in our complexion. Increasing levels of collagen is vital to maintain a youthful skin appearance and at Dr Medispa in London and Essex, we offer Sculptra, an injectable collagen biostimulator, to help your skin to rejuvenate and revive itself, from within.
What is Sculptra?
Sculptra is a substance which is made from poly-lactic acid (PLLA), a fully absorbed polymer, which works deeply within the skin tissues to improve its inner structure, over a series of treatments.
