Body Sculpting

CoolSculpting™

CoolSculpting™ by ZELTIQ™ is a new, non-invasive way to gently and effectively reduce fat in targeted areas of the body that results in a noticeable, natural-looking fat reduction in the treated areas. What makes the CoolSculpting procedure different is that it uses advanced cooling technology to selectively target fat bulges and eliminate fat cells through a gradual process that does not harm the surrounding tissues. This procedure can reduce unwanted abdominal fat, love handles (flanks), and back fat. Learn more about CoolSculpting™

Sclerotherapy

The “gold” standard for eliminating large spider veins, improving the appearance with a simple procedure. Valuable treatment solutions for smaller varicose veins, reticular, and vascular veins. May be combined with PDL laser for smaller telangiectasias (broken blood vessels) and spider veins. After each session, the veins will appear lighter. Two or more sessions are usually required to achieve optimal results.

Sculptra™

Truly a long term sculpting agent that restores volume to correct the signs of facial fat loss .Derived from fruit acids, Sculptra is a biocompatible and biodegradable injectable material known as Poly-L-Lactic acid that naturally stimulates the body to produce its own collagen. The result is a fuller, smoother, more youthful, natural looking face with less pronounced lines, creases, wrinkles, and folds. Unlike traditional treatments, Sculptra results can last up to 2 years. Requires 3 treatment sessions, 4 weeks apart. Delayed gratification with remarkable results in 4 months.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Sculptra®?
Sculptra® is a synthetic injectable material known as "poly-L-lactic acid." Poly-L-lactic acid is a biocompatible, biodegradable material that has been widely used for many years in dissolvable stitches, soft tissue implants, and other types of implants.2

How does Sculptra® work?
Sculptra® is injected below the surface of the skin in the area of fat loss. Sculptra® provides a gradual increase in skin thickness. Visible results appear within the first few treatment sessions.

Sculptra® will not correct the underlying cause of the facial fat loss, but will help improve the appearance by increasing skin thickness in the treated area.

Are skin tests required before treatment with Sculptra®?
No, skin testing is not required prior to use.

Are the results from Sculptra® immediate?
No. After the first treatment, it may appear that Sculptra® worked immediately. Typically, patients will experience some degree of edema associated with the injection procedure, which will give the appearance of a full correction by the end of the injection session (within about 30 minutes). The patient should be informed that the injection-related edema typically resolves in several hours to a few days, resulting in the "reappearance" of the original contour deficiency. Sculptra® takes time to gradually correct the depression in the skin.

How many treatments are required?
Each patient should be evaluated individually. More than one treatment session may be required. Patients with severe facial fat loss may require 3 to 6 treatment sessions.

How long do treatment effects last?
Treatment effects will differ for each person. In a clinical study, the treatment results lasted for up to 2 years after the first treatment session, in most patients. Touch-up treatments may be needed to maintain the desired effect.

How quickly can my patients return to their daily activities?
Most patients feel comfortable going back to their normal activities following treatment.

When will my patients be able to apply make-up after treatment?
Make-up may be applied a few hours after treatment if no complications are present (for example, open wounds or bleeding).

What are the possible side effects of treatment with Sculptra®?
The most commonly observed product-related adverse event was the delayed occurrence of subcutaneous papules (5 mm or less), which were typically palpable, asymptomatic, and non-visible, and confined to the injection site area. Other reported side effects of Sculptra® include immediate and transient injection-related events such as bleeding from the injection site, discomfort, erythema or inflammation, ecchymosis, and edema.

Advise patients to report any side effects to their healthcare provider.

Who should not use Sculptra®?
Sculptra® is contraindicated in those individuals who have shown a hypersensitivity to any of its components.
