A Rundown on Collagen Biostimulator - Sculptra

Sculptra is a treatment that uses poly-L-lactic acid to stimulate collagen production in the skin. It is known as one of the most effective ways to rejuvenate and firm sagging skin.

With its ability to increase collagen production by up to 400%, Sculptra can greatly improve the texture and firmness of the skin.

Dr. Szerman Explains

If you’re looking to improve your skin’s appearance by reducing wrinkles and sagging, Sculptra is a great option for both men and women. This procedure can be done on many areas of the body, such as the face, neck, arms, abdomen, thighs, and buttocks.

Sculptra is a safe and minimally invasive procedure that’s comfortable for patients. It works by stimulating collagen production, which restores volume, tones flabby skin, and reduces signs of aging. The results are gradual, with patients typically noticing a difference about five weeks after the procedure.

The number of sessions required depends on the severity of the problem. To achieve a natural and long-lasting rejuvenation, one to three monthly Sculptra sessions are typically recommended, followed by annual maintenance.

About us

How does it work?

Sculptra is a procedure in which a substance is injected under the skin using cannulas or micro-needles. This substance triggers a natural reaction in the body that helps produce collagen. This process helps improve skin thickness and prevents sagging or loss of elasticity. The outcome of this procedure is improved facial and body contours and more youthful-looking skin.

What are the benefits?

Sculptra is a safe procedure because it uses biocompatible materials for skincare, so the risk of rejection or allergic reactions is low. It is also less invasive, has a shorter recovery time, and prouces long-lasting, natural-looking results. This is due to the fact that it conforms to the skin’s natural shapes and contours.

Sculptra Post-procedure Care

Sculptra is a minimally invasive procedure that allows patients to resume their normal activities the same day. Cold compresses are recommended to avoid bruising, and the dermatologist in charge will prescribe ointments or creams.

The recovery time and other care will vary depending on the case, but the final results usually take a few weeks to a month.

Collagen biostimulator treatments are a good option for people who want to improve their facial contours and tighten sagging skin. This procedure can also help to thicken and improve the quality of skin, as well as reduce the appearance of stretch marks, cellulitis, and scars. Sculptra is especially useful for patients who have lost a lot of weight, given birth, or are athletes and runners.

You can use Sculptra on different parts of your body, including your face, neck, abdomen, thighs, arms, and buttocks.

The effects of this treatment can last up to 2 years, which is a considerable duration. However, it may take a few applications before the patient starts to notice any changes. This is because the natural process of collagen stimulation tends to be slow.

The cost of a session depends on how much biostimulator is needed, as well as the expertise of the professional and the type of clinic. The average price will vary accordingly.

On average, three to four treatment sessions are usually required, but the number of sessions may vary depending on each case. The patient’s goals for the procedure, as well as other health issues such as the healing process, are typically considered. An initial consultation with a dermatologist is recommended to assess your situation and determine the appropriate number of sessions.

Sessions should be spaced one or two months apart. The frequency of this depends on the patient’s age, the area being treated, and the type of treatment.

After the treatment, it is normal for the patient to have a minor swelling of the face. This effect, however, usually goes away gradually over time and does not alter the patient’s inherent features. The skin may also appear somewhat puffy or reddish.

Overall, there are a few differences between these two collagen biostimulators. The first is the composition. Sculptra is made of poly-L-lactic acid, which causes a natural inflammatory reaction that stimulates collagen formation. Radiesse is made up of calcium hydroxyapatite microspheres that does not generate an inflammatory response. Furthermore, when compared to Sculptra, the Radiesse injection can cause more discomfort in the patient. The speed with which the results appear is another point that differentiates these two biostimulators. Sculptra requires a few weeks to a month for the final result to be achieved. Meanwhile, Radiesse provides a result in less time. But it is worth mentioning that both biostimulators do not generate immediate effects.
