Body Treatments With Collagen Stimulators
HYPER-DILUTE RADIESSE or sculptra
Recent treatment innovations have shown that Radiesse and Sculptra can act as a bio-stimulating agent when it is hyper-diluted. Hyper-diluting means the compound is mixed with lidocaine and saline for thinning it out. The hyper-diluted mixture is then injected under the aging skin.
The skin rejuvenating effects of this treatment is visible and pronounced. Production of elastin and collagen begins as early as 4 weeks post-treatment. This helps with progressive natural dermal thickening and long-term skin tightening. Skin laxity, fine lines, and crepiness is reduced while elasticity, tone and skin pliability are improved.
Hyper-diluted Radiesse or Sculptra can be used for treating cellulite as well. Dimpling is reduced and the skin is plumped out by injecting hyper-diluted Radiesse in areas that have moderate to severe cellulite.
These are a few areas that can be treated:
- Upper inner arms
Hyper-dilute Radiesse or Sculptra can be used in combination to lasers, fillers, and other modalities for the best results. The treatment provider will discuss a custom treatment plan with you. In the first year, 1 – 3 treatment sessions spaced a month apart may be required for optimal cosmetic effects. You would also need maintenance treatments every 12 – 18 months.
1 liter of normal saline, with additional medications such as Toradol and/or Zofran are available if you have jet lag, migraines, or mild dehydration.
