Due to the aging process, environmental stressors, and our genetic predisposition, we suffer from loss of collagen at a rate of about 1% annually after the age of 20. Loss of collagen leads to thinning of skin which results in the formation of wrinkles and folds. Collagen is a fibrous protein in the deep dermal layer that gives our skin structural support and helps to maintain shape, moisture, and elasticity of the skin. By pairing Sculptra with Morpheus8, we are able to double down on collagen production helping to tighten the skin, thicken the skin, and really aim for a more youthful and lifted appearance.
WHAT IS SCULPTRA?
Sculptra is a type of dermal filler, but unlike traditional hyaluronic dermal fillers that are intended to restore volume, Sculptra is an injectable biostimulator made of of poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) that incorporates into the tissues and also helps to stimulate your body’s natural production of collagen. Whereas the effects of dermal filler are apparent immediately, the results of Sculptra happen gradually since it takes time for the body to build collagen.
WHAT IS MORPHEUS8?
Morpheus8 is a non-surgical advanced micro-needling treatment that uses radio-frequency to stimulate collagen production to tighten and improve skin quality on the face and body. What makes Morpheus8 different from other micro-needling treatments is the depth in which the needles penetrate the skin, that it produces heat and sends radio-frequency energy through the tissues. It is the only treatment that can mold fat under the skin, and thicken/tighten tissues simultaneously to obtain optimal results.
Many aesthetic procedures induce a reaction in the skin and thereby stimulate a wound healing response that leads to skin renewal and rejuvenation. When you double down on that process you facilitate a heightened wound healing response and a higher level of improvement than either treatment by itself could provide. If you are looking for a treatment to improve your skin quality; making it thicker, tighter and appear more youthful, The Sculptor is the treatment for you!
