Microneedling with Sculptra
- Posted on: Oct 5 2018
Do you look in the mirror and feel like you see dark circles and crepey skin under your eyes? Do you feel like your skin is sagging and has lost that firm suppleness it once had? Well, might I suggest a microneedling treatment using Sculptra? When we use Sculptra topically on the skin during a microneedling treatment we greatly enhance the collagen stimulation within the dermis which in turn gives smoother looking skin.
What is Sculptra?
Sculptra Aesthetic is a biocompatible, biodegradable synthetic material that naturally stimulates your own collagen production. Using Sculptra during a microneedling treatment is amazingly soothing and gives you a brighter and youthful glow. Who doesn’t want tighter, more plump and brighter skin? When we add Sculptra into the equation we are basically giving your treatment a supercharge! Like microneedling on steroids. We essentially are signaling your collagen to produce, improving the skin’s texture and laxity.
What is Microneedling?
Microneedling alone stimulates collagen and elastin production by creating an inflammatory response that signals your body to produce collagen in the dermal layers of the skin. Microneedling provides a way to resurface the skin without the thermal injury of lasers.
How Do They Work Together?
According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, Sculptra Aesthetic, which is L-poly-lactic acid, signals the body to replenish lost collagen, replacing volume in the hollows of the mid and low face when injected into the skin. Did you know that by age 40 we have lost 20% of our collagen! When Sculptra is used during microneedling, the results yield a thickening and tightening of the skin and an overall glow giving a youthful, brighter appearance. The effects of Sculptra are long lasting, years in fact! Injecting Sculptra fills in the hollows of the face over time, Microneedling Sculptra, is improving the texture, tone, and brightness of the skin for years to come.
Combining Fillers with Microneedling
This treatment is protecting your investment. If you are treating with Botox, Dysport, or Xeomin, and fillers, microneedling with Sculptra is like the icing on the cake. Smoothing and brightening your skin will enhance the other treatments, by creating a harmonious, youthful, and luminescent look. You wouldn’t give someone a beautiful present without a bow to top it off, would you? To me, as a clinician, when I observe someone with fantastic facial structure, if the skin’s texture is rough, crepey, and lax, or if it has a dullness, the structure does not matter aesthetically. It is the full and complete picture that draws the eye to beauty.
