SCULPTRA® is a revolutionary treatment which can be compared to a non-surgical face lifting. In therapeutic purposes it was used for the first time more than 30 years ago. It is said that it can stop the passage of time. Sculptra® is nothing more than polylactic acid used to prevent aging and in rejuvenating treatments.
SCULPTRA® has 2 groups of applications:
In addition to this, it has a very good effect on aesthetic outcome improvement in the case of:
Sculptra® works in two stages. In the first stage, filling in of the cavities is related to the injected preparation volume. After a few days, the water contained in the gel is absorbed and the correction effect recedes. Then, polylactic acid molecules trigger the collagen synthesis process and naturally rebuild the lost tissue.
Sculptra® works slowly but very effectively and its effects are long-lasting. Effects increase over time and last up to 3-4 years!
Radiesse is one of the most particular preparations filling in subcutaneous cavities and wrinkles. Its particularity consists in its composition. The main and unique ingredient of this preparation is calcium hydroxyapatite, identical to that found in human bones and teeth.
100% biocompatibility of Radiesse makes the treatment entirely safe.
It improves skin density and structure without giving it excessive volume. It differs from hyaluronic acid in a smaller swelling after the treatment and durability. The effect can last up to 2 years!
Radiesse™ is introduced subcutaneously upon application of a local anaesthetic. The procedure takes around 30-60 minutes, depending on the area. Owing to a special gel medium, the filling effect – visible directly after the treatment – is immediate. When CaHA molecules reach their destinations in the tissues they instantly form a “scaffolding”, supporting and stimulating production of new tissues. Production of new collagen takes place around micromolecules of calcium hydroxyapatite. The skin is naturally rejuvenated, becoming thicker and more flexible.
Most patients return to work directly after the procedure. In the case of swelling or redness, they disappear within 24 hours. Small bruises can appear, to disappear after up to one week.
Removed subcutaneous tissue cavities in the form of nasolabial furrows and wrinkles give the effect of young and fresh skin. Aesthetic effects usually last 1.5 year, and up to 2 years in some patients!
