Sculptra® Aesthetic, the first FDA approved collagen-stimulating injectable in the US, is in a league of its own enabling you to replace the natural volume (fat) loss that occurs as we age – the volume loss that is responsible for the appearance of age. Sculptra® Aesthetic is not a wrinkle filler, it's a volumizer.
The introduction of a volumizer such as Sculptra® Aesthetic is such an exciting event because it is that volume that makes you look young. Think about it, a young face has fullness and roundness in the cheeks, under the eyes, in the lips and around the mouth. This fullness causes light to reflect with very little shadow. The human eye is drawn to reflected light. By replacing the volume loss that naturally occurs in aging, you reverse the creation of shadow and restore the reflection of light and the appearance of youth. The volume replacement that Sculptra® Aesthetic offers fills the skin so that it is non-surgically ‘lifted’ by the formation of your body's own collagen.
Sculptra® Aesthetic does not give immediate results, rather it works gradually over time allowing you to keep your rejuvenated youthful appearance your own “pretty little secret” if you wish. There is a time factor involved since the true volume effect is created by your own collagen, not the product itself. This collagen replenishment takes place over a period of several months. Patients usually receive more than one injection session to accomplish optimum re-volumization. Another exciting benefit of Sculptra® Aesthetic is the lasting effects. Though they vary from patient to patient, studies have shown that some Sculptra® Aesthetic patients have seen results last up to or greater than two years from the first treatment. Periodic touch up treatments will maintain the desired effects.
The exciting element that Sculptra® Aesthetic brings to the table is not only the ability to now reverse the effects of aging but also the ability to slow the effects of aging making this product ideal for patient’s whether they are 30 and wanting to delay the aging process or they are 60 and seeking to correct it. Once the skin begins to lose its support system through natural collagen breakdown, a cascade effect inevitably occurs. With Sculptra® Aesthetic you actually self-produce new collagen in the skin, your own collagen, thus essentially ‘lifting’ your skin and retaining or regaining that youthful appearance.
Grow Your Lashes!!
Latisse, brought to you by Allergan,
the providers of Botox and Juvederm.
Latisse is the first and ONLY PRESCRIPTION treatment APPROVED by the FDA to grow longer, fuller and darker lashes for those with hypotrichosis, inadequate or insufficient eyelashes.
Latisse is for use on the skin of the upper eyelid margins at the base of the eyelashes. Latisse should NOT be applied to the lower eyelid.
Use of Latisse may cause darkening of the eyelid skin which may be reversible. Increased brown pigmentation of the colored part of the eye may also occur though not reported in clinical studies. If this were to occur it is likely to be permanent.
Common side effects include:
- Itching sensation in the eyes and/or eye redness (reported in 4% of patients)
- Skin darkening
- Eye irritation
- Dryness of the eyes
- Redness of the eyelids
Negative side effects of prescription drugs may be reported to the FDA at www.fda.gov/medwatch or by calling 1-800-FDA-1088
Latisse is applied at night to the clean, dry upper eyelid with an individual applicator. One drop of Latisse should be applied to the applicator and then applied to the upper eyelid just as you would apply eyeliner. Any excess solution beyond the eyelid should be blotted away. A separate applicator should be used for each eyelid with each applicator being disposed of after a single use.
You will begin to see results in as little as 4 weeks with full results expected in 16 weeks with regular, consistent use.
Transfer of the solution from upper to lower eyelids may occur naturally during your sleep while the eyes are closed but you should only apply to the upper eyelid. Over use may increase the risk of side effects so it is important to follow the directions exactly.
If you stop using Latisse your lashes are expected to return to their normal appearance in a matter of weeks or months.
