Here at Contour Collection, we're passionate about helping our clients achieve naturally radiant and youthful-looking skin. Our approach revolves around harnessing the body's own mechanisms to promote collagen and elastin production, resulting in skin that is not only healthy but also tight and bouncy. Through the use of biostimulators and regenerative medicine techniques, we strive to deliver lasting results that enhance your natural beauty, and one key way to do that is through Collagen Banking.

The journey to youthful skin begins with prevention. It’s important to implement strategies that shield the skin from factors known to accelerate collagen breakdown. These include minimizing UV exposure through the daily use of Vitamin C, SPF, and protective hats, as well as adopting a low-sugar diet and avoiding smoking. SkinCeuticals has a moisturizer called A.G.E. Interrupter that blocks the glycation process which is when glucose breaks down our existing collagen.


As we age, our bodies naturally produce less collagen, leading to a loss of skin firmness and elasticity. To counteract this decline, we employ various collagen-stimulating procedures designed to rejuvenate the skin from within, called Collagen Banking (more on that below).


Collagen banking is a proactive approach aimed at building up a reserve of collagen in the skin to mitigate future collagen loss and promote sustained skin health and vitality. The concept involves starting to invest in collagen-stimulating treatments early on, such as Sculptra injections, microneedling, and Exosomes, and other collagen-stimulating procedures, in your mid 20’s and 30’s to stimulate collagen production. By doing so, you can "bank" or accumulate more collagen in your skin, which may help offset the natural decline in collagen production that occurs with age. This strategy is intended to yield long-term benefits, resulting in smoother, firmer, and more youthful-looking skin as individuals age. Collagen banking is important because the healthier and younger you are, the more collagen you will produce with collagen-producing procedures. By 60 it becomes more difficult to illicit collagen production. So start investing in your Collagen Bank today!


One of the most powerful tools in our collagen bank arsenal is Sculptra, a series of lactic acids that form poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA). Unlike traditional fillers, Sculptra works by stimulating the body's own collagen production, leading to natural-looking results that improve over time.

When injected into the skin, PLLA is gradually broken down by the body into natural byproducts, including carbon dioxide, water, glucose, and lactate. Meanwhile, it triggers a cascade of cellular responses that culminate in the deposition of new collagen fibers. Over the course of several months, the skin undergoes a rejuvenation process, resulting in improved firmness, elasticity, and overall glow quality.


The beauty of Sculptra lies in its ability to deliver subtle yet transformative results. Unlike traditional fillers, which can sometimes appear unnatural or overdone, Sculptra enhances your features in a way that is indiscernible to the naked eye. The gradual improvement in skin quality, coupled with long-lasting outcomes, makes it a favorite among discerning clients seeking natural rejuvenation.

The efficacy of Sculptra speaks for itself, with a staggering 95% of patients reporting improved skin glow and 89% noticing enhanced skin firmness two years post-treatment. These impressive statistics underscore the transformative power of collagen-stimulating procedures in rejuvenating the skin from within.


Sculptra is primarily used to add volume to areas of the face, such as the cheeks, temples, and chin, to restore youthful contours. Unlike traditional fillers, which add immediate volume, Sculptra stimulates your skin’s own natural collagen production over time, providing gradual and long-lasting results. Here are the most popular areas for Sculptra injections:

  • Cheeks

  • Temples

  • Jawline

  • Smile Lines

  • Neck

  • Décolleté

  • Hairline


  • It’s Long-Lasting

    • Unlike fillers that last only a few months, Sculptra can last up to five years (after following a treatment series). This is because Sculptra stimulates the body’s own collagen production, which gradually improves the skin’s texture and volume over time.

  • It’s Safe

    • Sculptra is made of a biocompatible material called poly-L-lactic acid, which has been used for many years in various medical applications. It is a safe and well-tolerated treatment that has been approved by the FDA.

  • It’s Versatile

    • Sculptra is not just for correcting wrinkles and fine lines. It can also be used to add volume to areas that have lost volume due to aging or other factors, such as the temples, cheeks, in front of the ears and jawline. Sculptra can even be used topically after a microneedling treatment for acne scars and superficial collagen production.

  • It Provides Natural-Looking Results

    • Sculptra provides natural-looking results because it stimulates the body’s natural collagen production process. Unlike other fillers that can look unnatural, Sculptra creates a subtle and gradual improvement in the skin’s texture and volume. We love that some practitioners call Sculptra “the Colorado aesthetic” because of its undetectable result.

  • It’s a Non-Surgical Treatment

    • Sculptra is a non-surgical treatment that requires minimal downtime. The procedure takes about 30 minutes. While there is a possibility of bruising, most people can return to their daily activities immediately after the treatment.

  • It’s a Preventative Treatment

    • Sculptra is not just for correcting existing signs of aging. It can also be used as a preventative treatment to maintain the skin’s youthful appearance and to keep up with the 1% of inevitable collagen loss. By stimulating collagen production, Sculptra can help slow the gravitational pull of the aging process.


The standard treatment of Sculptra is 1 vial per lateral side of the face; however, if you are looking to add on other areas such as the temples, smile lines, jawline, neck, décolleté etc., an additional 1-2 vials is recommended. Each vial of Sculptra is $800, so the range in cost is $1,600-$3,200. While the investment may seem substantial, the long-term benefits and natural-looking results make it an invaluable treatment for those committed to preserving their youthful glow and age gracefully.


While you can begin to see visible results around twelve weeks, the true potential of Sculptra is realized at the one-year mark, and the benefits can last up to five years with a series of three treatments. However, to ensure no unwanted side effects, it's crucial to adhere to the 5-5-5 rule: gently massage the treated area for five minutes, five times a day, for five days following your treatment, using even smoothing, circular motions.


As the saying goes, prevention is better than cure. By investing in your Collagen Bank early on, you can maximize the benefits of collagen-stimulating treatments and maintain youthful, radiant skin for years to come. Sculptra is a versatile and long-lasting treatment that everyone should consider. It is safe, provides natural-looking results, and can be used to correct various skin concerns, including wrinkles, fine lines, and volume loss.
