Aging happens to everyone, and with this process comes a phenomenon known as collagen loss. As collagen loss begins and intensifies, we can become more aware of aging signs like sagging skin, volume loss, and wrinkles. While the process can’t be stopped entirely, its effects can be mitigated with the right treatments. At Posh, we offer injectable options, including Sculptra® and JUVÉDERM® Fillers. Contact our Reno, Nevada office to learn more about these injections.
Why Does Collagen Loss Happen?
Collagen loss is simply a factor of age. Your environment (sun, pollution, oxidants, and diet) can accelerate collagen losses. While we can’t necessarily prevent lost collagen, we can do things to slow it down or restore it. Our range of treatment options can slow down and stimulate new collagen production to help you regain your youthful glow naturally.
What Are the Results of Collagen Loss?
Collagen loss shows itself in the skin that is more wrinkled, thinner, and less hydrated. There is no health issue associated with lost collagen. Still, it makes you look unmistakably older, which is why so many people seek ways to restore lost collagen or at least simulate the appearance of more collagen.
What Can We Do About Lost Collagen?
Sculptra® and JUVÉDERM® are different injectable treatments. Sculptra® is a Polylactic Acid-based (PILLA or poly-C-lactic) injectable filler that stimulates collagen production and improves your skin over time. The result of this treatment can last between 2-5 years.
JUVÉDERM®, on the other hand, is a hyaluronic acid filler that improves skin plumpness in the face. This filler takes little time to administer and offers results that tend to last for an average of 12-18 months. This filler may be a better option if you want shorter-duration results.
In addition to these options, we also offer PRP Microneedling Facial treatments to stimulate collagen production. These treatments rely on a combination of SkinPen® microneedling technology and your own plasma to rejuvenate your look naturally.
