INTRODUCING: SCULPTRA® – FDA-Approved Dermal Filler that Helps Replace Lost Collagen: For Wrinkles, Aging Skin & Deep Scars – The First in the Philippines!

WHAT IS SCULPTRA®?
Sculptra® is a Poly-L-Lactic acid substance that is used to fill wrinkles and deep scars, because of its collagen-forming properties. Thus, long term effects would be more satisfactory than traditional toxins like Botox®, hyaluronic acid fillers like Restylane® since the lost collagen that causes wrinkles and deep scars are replenished.

WHY SHOULD YOU CHOOSE SCULPTRA® OVER OTHER TREATMENTS?
Fillers are liquid or gel substances, like hyaluronic acid or bovine or porcine collagen, that diminish lines by pushing up the dermis space beneath wrinkles and creases. Results appear immediately and can last up to several months.
Collagen stimulators are used to diminish facial wrinkles by helping to restore the deep, underlying structure of the skin. Results appear gradually over the treatment regime (typically three injections over the course of three to four months) and can last up to two years.
As a Poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) collagen stimulator, Sculptra® is different. It works with your body within the deep dermis, rather than topically, to help revitalize collagen production and help restore your skin’s inner structure and volume. As the Sculptra’s PLLA microparticles are absorbed, they help stimulate collagen production. Rebuilt collagen strands begin gradually helping to restore facial volume and the look of fullness to wrinkles and deep scars. Results may not be immediate, but they will last much longer than other treatments.

HOW DOES SCULPTRA® WORK?
Sculptra® is made with biocompatible, biodegradable, synthetic material called Poly-L-lactic acid, which is gradually and naturally absorbed by the body and helps to rebuild lost collagen through a series of treatments administered by a trained dermatologist.
The dermatologist injects treatment within the dermis, where strands of collagen support your skin’s structure. Over time, Sculptra® helps the body reproduce lost collagen. On average, 3 injection appointments are needed over a period of a few months. The number of injection appointments and the number of injections per appointment vary from person to person, depending on how much collagen has been lost.

IS SCULPTRA® SAFE?
Sculptra® is US FDA-approved and has been used worldwide since 1999. It contains a synthetic material called Poly-L-Lactic acid, which is a biocompatible, biodegradable substance that is gradually and naturally absorbed by the body and commonly found in dissolvable stitches.

WHAT CAN I EXPECT AFTER THE TREATMENT?
There will be some redness, tenderness and swelling on the injection sites after the treatment which will disappear in around 1 to 2 days. Bruising can be seen especially if you’re prone to bruising, which will disappear in 4 to 5 days. Lumps that can occur with the injection will dissipate in 1 to 2 days.

HAND REJUVENATION USING DERMAL FILLERS – Instant Results for Younger-Looking Hands

Our bodies also show the signs of aging, just like our faces. However, we devote so much time taking away wrinkles and age spots, and miss taking care of our hands. This can lead to the “odd” appearance of youthful face and aged hands.

Our hands are always exposed. They not only do get lots of sun and environmental exposure to irritants that make them age faster, they’re also constantly on display every time we shake someone’s hands or touch our face. Our hands might give away our age even if our face doesn’t.

Most people assume that there’s nothing that can be done for ageing hands, but there is a solution for it – Radiesse® a Dermal Filler.

WHAT IS RADIESSE®? HOW DOES IT WORK?
RADIESSE® are dermal fillers made of Calcium hydroxylapatite that are used for smoothing moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. RADIESSE® is also used for correcting volume loss in the back of the hands.

WHEN WILL I SEE THE EFFECTS OF HAND REJUVENATION USING RADIESSE®?
The results are visible right away. Remember to allow a little time for any redness, swelling and bruising to go down.

HOW LONG DOES RADIESSE® LAST IN THE HANDS?
Results will typically last around 12 to 18 months.

DOES HAND REJUVENATION USING RADIESSE® HURT?
Most patients find the procedure on their hands comfortable with very little pain. We apply a numbing cream to the hands prior to the procedure. We also use very fine needles or flexible cannula. Furthermore, Radiesse® contains lidocaine, a local anesthetic numbing agent for added comfort.

WHAT DO I NEED TO AVOID AFTER MY HAND REJUVENATION TREATMENT?
As with Botox and other dermal fillers, it’s important not to increase your body temperature after treatment, thus you should avoid drinking alcohol, exercising or exposing to too much sun for the first 24 hours.

WHAT ARE THE SIDE EFFECTS OF THE HAND REJUVENATION TREATMENT?
You may experience a little swelling, redness, itchiness or bruising after the treatment. There may be tenderness afround the injection site and potentioal lumps in the treated area. These lumps can be reduced by massage.

REAL PATIENTS, REAL RESULTS: Radiesse™ Dermal Fillers


Radiesse™ is a new generation Dermal Filler made of calcium hydroxylapatite that has both immediate effects and benefit of collagen formation. Thus, aside from the advantage of seeing the results immediately after the treatment, you’re assured of longer lasting results (up to 2 years!) and better filling action because of its property of stimulating your own body’s collagen formation. It’s used to improve wrinkles, restore facial and hand volume and to improve deep scars like acne and chickenpox scars.
This patient had very deep Nasolabial folds that bothered her and made her look older than her age. Radiesse™ injection rejuvenated her appearance instantly! And this will last for up to 2 years!

RADIESSE® Fillers – New Generation Fillers that Stimulates Collagen Formation with Longer Lasting Results!

WHAT ARE RADIESSE® FILLERS?
Radiesse® are dermal fillers that are used for smoothing moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds (the creases that extend from the corner of your nose to the corner of your mouth). Radiesse® is also used for correcting volume loss in the face and in the back of the hands. Radiesse® is likewise proven to form collagen which can help in treating deep scars like atrophic acne and chickenpox scars.

HOW DOES RADIESSE® WORK?
Radiesse® is a wrinkle filler used to plump the skin. Radiesse is injected through a small needle and placed under the skin. Immediately, this filler works to add volume under the skin and over time, the benefits of Radiesse® continue by stimulating your body’s own natural collagen. The natural results have been shown to last 15 to 18 months or more in many patients, making the treatment results both immediate and long lasting. Moreover, since collagen is being formed underneath the deep scars with the injection of Radiesse®, there is a significant long lasting reduction of the depth of deep scars like atrophic acne and chickenpox scars.

WHAT IS RADIESSE® MADE FROM?
RADIESSE® is made of tiny calcium-based microspheres suspended in a water-based gel. The calcium microspheres are similar to minerals found naturally in the body so allergy testing is not required. Over time, the body absorbs the microspheres and gel, leaving behind only natural collagen.

WHAT MAKES RADIESSE® DIFFERENT FROM OTHER DERMAL FILLERS?
Radiesse® is the only dermal filler available composed of calcium-based microspheres, and has been shown to stimulate the natural production of collagen, for results that may last 15 to 18 months or more in many patients. In addition, 30% less Radiesse® may be needed for correction when compared to other hyaluronic acid injectables. Unlike hyaluronic acid fillers, Radiesse™ will not migrate to other areas, which can lead to unsightly bulging/beading underneath the skin. In clinical studies with leading hyaluronic acid injectable dermal fillers, results showed that Radiesse® patients were more satisfied with their results than patients treated with other leading wrinkle fillers.

IS RADIESSE® PAINFUL?
Radiesse® is injected under the skin in a quick procedure that can be done over the lunch hour. Radiesse® is also FDA-approved to mix with lidocaine (an anesthetic), which means the procedure will be much more comfortable. In fact, in a clinical study, 90% of patients treated reported significant pain reduction when injected with Radiesse® mixed with lidocaine.

HOW SOON CAN I SEE THE RESULTS?
Immediately upon injection, Radiesse® restores volume to smooth out the signs of aging. The natural-looking results may last 15 to 18 months or more in many patients. For deep scars like atrophic acne scars, results are even longer lasting.

WHAT ARE THE SIDE EFFECTS OF RADIESSE®?
The most common adverse events include bruising, redness, swelling, pain, tenderness and itching. These side effects generally last for a short time and are mild in nature.
