Cosmetic surgery is a continually changing field with new procedures and treatments being available each year. One of the most popular methods of cosmetic treatment is with dermal fillers. Dermal fillers are minimally invasive cosmetic treatments that rejuvenate the skin by treating aging signs such as wrinkles and lost volume. Sculptra® is an injectable volumizing product that is very different from dermal fillers and was approved for cosmetic use by the FDA. For the past 10 years, our team at Laser Skin & Wellness has been offering Sculptra® to our patients who wish to revamp their skin without the need for surgery.

What is Sculptra®?

Sculptra® is an injectable product that helps to stimulate collagen for long-lasting results. The main ingredient in Sculptra® is poly-L-lactic acid which is classified as a collagen stimulator. This helps the skin look tighter, smoother, and firmer. You can enjoy the results from Sculptra® for up to two years or longer. Sculptra® is injected into the skin to diminish wrinkles, fine lines, and to restore fullness to aged skin. Some immediate results will be noticeable, but it can take a few months to see the most dramatic results as collagen production is rebuilding.

Targeted Areas for Sculptra®

Sculptra® is used for facial wrinkles and folds but it can also assist with hollow areas such as the temples. The Laser Skin & Wellness team will map out points of injection on your face to suit your concerns and improve your skin’s appearance. The total treatment time for Sculptra® is between 40 and 60 minutes to complete.

How Much Sculptra® will I need?

For the best results, most patients receive 2 to 3 treatments spaced over 4-6 month period. One vial per decade of life is typically the recommended protocol. For instance, a 40 year old patient would need a total of 4 vials, split into two treatments of 2 vials each, with 2 months in-between treatments. Then we recommend the Beauty Club for monthly treatments to maintain results and re-evaluation yearly.

Why Sculptra® over Dermal Fillers?

Patients love this treatment because of the beautiful, natural, long-lasting results and there is no downtime associated with the treatment. You can get right back to your day as soon as you leave the office except for heavy gym workouts for a few days. Some redness and swelling might be present for a few hours after Sculptra® injections. The big difference between Sculptra® and dermal fillers is that Sculptra® stimulates your own collagen and dermal fillers “fill” an area instantly and last for 9-12 months.

Microneedling is a versatile skin care treatment, making it a very popular choice for many of our patients. The treatment works by stimulating collagen production through a series of micro-injuries. At-home dermal rollers and other microneedling systems are available, however, these treatments are not as effective or safe as professional microneedling treatments.

At Laser Skin & Wellness, we have different options of RF Microneedling: the Vivace RF and the Morpheus8, which combines radio-frequency energy and microneedles to further stimulate collagen production and kill acne-causing bacteria. This system offers a variety of benefits to our clients.

Microneedling Treatments

Vivace RF and Morpheus8 Microneedling devices, are incredibly versatile treatments, useful for a wide range of skin concerns. They can be used to improve:

  • Skin laxity
  • Stretch marks
  • Wrinkles
  • Acne
  • Enlarged pores

This wide range of uses means that Vivace RF and Morpheus8 Microneedling is suitable for many clients, regardless of their age, skin issues, skin types, or the area of the face or body they wish to treat.

Nonsurgical Option

While some more severe issues, such as significant excess skin or jowls, require surgery, microneedling is a good solution for those who want to improve their appearance and fight signs of aging without surgery.

Easily Customizable Treatments

Unlike other microneedling methods or systems, Vivace RF and Morpheus8 Microneedling is a highly customizable procedure. After examining your skin, a trained specialist will utilize specific settings for the system, such as the needle depth. This makes it a suitable and effective treatment for a wide range of patients.

Short Treatments and Minimal Recovery

Vivace RF and Morpheus8 Microneedling treatment is usually completed through a series of sessions to reach the clients goal result. Each of these sessions typically takes just over an hour, with 45 minutes of actual treatment time.

After treatment, recovery is very minimal. It’s normal to have some redness and tenderness in the treatment area, which most patients describe as similar to a sunburn. There isn’t any downtime associated with recovery, and you can return to normal activities if you choose.
