Microneedling with Topical Sculptra at Colorado Beauty RN

Why You Need It:

Further stimulate collagen, speed up healing time, and give your skin a healthy skin glow with this add-on treatment. Sculptra is poly-l-lactic acid (PLLA) mixed with sterile water. PLLA is bio-stimulatory, biocompatible and biodegradable. When Sculptra is applied during and immediately after microneedling, the PLLA gets absorbed into the dermis where it irritates the fibroblasts. The fibroblasts respond by producing collagen.

What to Expect:

  • During your treatment, your provider will apply topical numbing cream for 15-20 minutes to help alleviate any discomfort.
  • This treatment uses a device that has numerous small, sterile needles in a cartridge that make multiple micro-punctures in your skin.
  • Your skin will look red and tight after the treatment.
  • Appointment Length:

    • 60 minutes
  • Frequency of Treatment:

    • A series of 4-6 microneedling treatments are necessary for optimal results. Microneedling may be done each month. Boost your results anytime with topical Sculptra

Post Care:

  • Do not rinse your face for at least 6 hours after microneedling with topical Sculptra.
  • The next day, you may cleanse with a gentle cleanser and fingertips. DO NOT use a washcloth or facial cleansing brush of any kind. Pat area dry.
  • Use sunscreen and reapply after every 2 hours of sun exposure to protect new skin.
  • Do not use any physical or chemical exfoliation (retinol, etc) products for at least 5 days after.
  • You may notice skin dryness and flaking. This is due to an increased turnover of skin cells.
