Sculptra Aesthetic is a facial injectable made from Poly-L-Lactic acid which helps to replace lost collagen and thicken the skin of the face. As one ages, collagen production decreases which results in more visible wrinkles and facial hollowness. Other injectable fillers will only correct specific wrinkles on the face. A face lift will only pull the skin tighter. Sculptra is unique in that it replaces overall volume in the face, which contributes to an overall natural, youthful appearance without looking “done.”
How does it work?
Sculptra is a liquid injected into the skin of the cheeks and temples. Pts may feel slight discomfort during and after injection. Results will emerge over the next several months over the course of several sessions. (3 is average). Results then last for 2+ years with only touch-up sessions needed to maintain results.
Kybella is the first and only FDA approved injectable drug that eliminates unwanted fat to the submental fat, otherwise known as “double chin” or “turkey neck.” Submental fullness can be due to genetics, weight gain, or aging. Previously, the only way to treat this area was liposuction or jaw surgery.
How does it work?
A chemical ingredient called deoxycholic acid is injected into the fat beneath your skin. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. Once injected, Kybella begins to destroy fat cells immediately. - Patients report a slight burning sensation during treatment that lasts for approximately 10 minuets. Full results will be noted about 2-3 mo. After injection. Multiple treatment sessions may be required for desired results.
INNOpenis a fractional micro-needling device that works to tighten, lift and rejuvenate the skin. It is effective in reducing fine lines and wrinkles, stretch marks, surgical and acne scars. INNOpen uses multiple needles that vertically pierce the skin. This creates micro-injuries to the skin, stimulating new collagen production. The automatic vibrating function of the INNOpen also increases absorption of products, while reducing pain and discomfort.
Unlike dermal rollers, INNOpen causes significantly less trauma and skin damage. Treatments are far more comfortable by comparison enabling safer and more effective skin rejuvenation.
Ultherapy is a nonsurgical procedure that uses medical ultrasound for cosmetic improvement of the skin. Ultherapy works deep below the surface without cutting or disrupting the outer layer of skin for firming, tightening and lifting. Improvements include a more defined jawline and tighter skin on the neck and under the chin. Sagging skin on the cheeks can be tightened and lifted, which in turn can improve skin folds and drooping corners of the mouth. Tightening of skin on the forehead and brow can reduce the sagging skin on the eyelids and promote a more open, refreshed appearance. Unlike lasers, radio frequency, surgery and other technologies; nonsurgical Ultherapy bypasses superficial skin to deliver the right amount of ultrasound energy at the right depths and the right temperature. This energy triggers a natural response under the skin, jump starting the regenerative process that strengthens weak collagen and produces fresh, new collagen. The treatment also uses traditional ultrasound imaging which allows practitioners to see the layers of tissue they are treating, ensuring the treatment energy is delivered to where it will be most beneficial.
