Collagen Stimulators work deep within the skin to gradually replace lost collagen. As collagen is produced, volume is restored and wrinkles and folds are gradually corrected. Results have been proven to last over 2 years.
Radiesse (calcium hydroxylapatite) is an injectable cosmetic skin treatment used to fill areas of the face and hands. It stimulates your body’s natural collagen, filling in wrinkles long term and helping your skin develop collagen in the process. Radiesse is typically used for wrinkles around the mouth and nose, or the back of hands where volume has decreased.
Sculptra aesthetic, also known as injectable poly-L-lactic acid, helps replenish lost collagen by working deep within the skin to produce collagen. Approved by the FDA, Sculptra subtly and gradually over time helps restore facial volume by addressing the underlying cause of aging, not just the symptoms.
80% of users in a clinical study were still satisfied with their treatment results 25 months after their last treatment.
Sculptra provides a more youthful-looking appearance, without looking like you’ve had “work done”.
A few days before treatment after consultation with your doctor, you may want to stop taking NSAIDs such as aspiring, ibuprofen, and naproxen.
The treatment is injected in previously mapped locations on your skin. A topical anesthetic may be applied to help with discomfort.
Side effects can include redness, swelling, bruising, and tenderness, but these typically subside within a few days.
You may start to notice progressive, visible results within the first few weeks. Try to avoid direct sunlight, and massage the treated area for a few days following treatment.
Both Radiesse and Sculptra are two of the longest lasting fillers, or collagen stimulants, on the market. Queen C Skin Studio has experience injecting a variety of substances for different skin types, and will recommend the appropriate collagen stimulator to meet your personal needs.
The price can vary depending on location and personal goals but starts at $750/vial.
