Where Can Sculptra Injections Be Used?

Where Can Sculptra Injections Be Used?

Would you like to reduce visible signs of facial aging without surgery? Sculptra is a unique dermal filler that can provide the subtle facial rejuvenation results you desire, and leave your skin looking firm and youthful. But where can Sculptra injections be used.

Sculptra Aesthetic
Sculptra Aesthetic contains tiny particles of poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), which is a biodegradable polymer that has been used for decades to make absorbable stitches.

Sculptra is naturally absorbed by the body over time, and helps increase the production of collagen, which is a protein provides structural support to the skin. The additional collagen augments facial volume and makes wrinkles and folds appear fuller over time. The decline in collagen is a primary contributor to the formation of facial lines and wrinkles.

Where can Sculptra injections be used?
Sculptra is designed for use on deep facial wrinkles and folds that are often harder to fill with other cosmetic fillers. It is especially effective for nasolabial folds, which are the lines that run down from the nose to the mouth, as well as marionette lines, which are the lines that frame the mouth. Sculptra can also be used to soften the appearance of chin lines.

Sculptra will gradually smooth and soften facial wrinkles and folds as collagen levels increase. The wrinkle-softening effects of Sculptra can last up to 2 years.

In order to ensure safety and achieve the desired results, Sculptra must be administered by a physician that has undergone official training for Sculptra Aesthetic.

Do SculpSure treatments hurt?

If you feel self-conscious about  lingering fat on your abdomen and flanks, you may be a suitable candidate for SculpSure. SculpSure is a non-invasive treatment that  contours the body in just 25 minutes, and it can melt away up to 24% of the treated fat. But do SculpSure treatments hurt?

SculpSure is indicated for treating fat on the abdomen and flanks. It uses a diode 1064nm laser to heat and then destroy the fat cells. The laser energy bypasses the outer epidermal layer of the skin, and penetrates down to the fat below the surface.

The laser precisely heats the fat cells, so there is no damage to the skin or other tissues. The fat cells start to break down as soon as the temperature gets to 45 degrees Celsius. The cells that are destroyed are eliminated by the body’s lymphatic system, and are gone for good.

There is no downtime with SculpSure, so patients can return to their normal activities after treatment.

Do SculpSure treatments hurt
The laser used for SculpSure treatment produces a sensation of heat, and some patients also experience intermittent tingling.  These side-effects are generally not a problem, as most patients tolerate the treatment very well. However, treatment may be uncomfortable for patients that are more sensitive to heat.

SculpSure also has a contact cooling system that prevents the laser from over-heating the skin, and this helps to enhance patient comfort.

If you are ready to say goodbye to stubborn fat, but don’t want to face possible complications from a surgical procedure, SculpSure may be the right choice for you.

What is SculpSure and how does it work?

If you are looking for a fast and effective treatment to eliminate body fat, SculpSure may be the right treatment for you. SculpSure has been receiving rave reviews by patients and physicians, because it is so effective in the battle against the bulge. But what is SculpSure, and how does it work.

What is SculpSure?
SculpSure is a body contouring laser treatment that is FDA approved for fat reduction in the abdomen and flanks. It is a minimally invasive procedure that uses heat to destroy the fat cells. SculpSure takes only 25 minutes to perform, and has no downtime. The device has 4 applicator heads, which facilitates the treatment of multiple areas at the same time.

How does it work?
SculpSure targets and heats the fat cells to between 42 to 46 degrees Celsius, without impacting the skin or tissues.  The device also has cooling pads that help to keep the skin at a safe and comfortable temperature. Once the desired temperature is reached, the fat cells break down. They are naturally passed out by the body over time, and are permanently eliminated. Most patients only need one treatment to get the desired outcome.

What to expect?
Results begin to be evident within 6 weeks, but final results can take up to 12 weeks. Participants in the clinical trials experienced a 24% fat reduction after a single treatment.

SculpSure body contouring is available in Boston, MA, at the offices of Dr. Sean Doherty. Dr. Doherty also has an office in Concord, MA. Dr. Doherty is very experienced with the technology as he was a principal investigator in the initial studies done for SculpSure.

Call (617)450-0070 to schedule an appointment for the office in Boston, or (978)369-4499 for Concord.
