Combining Treatments To Minimize Scarring

Stacking treatments is a huge topic in the aesthetic industry at the moment. Let’s face it, if you’re wishing your result was better, your provider is thinking the same thing, and furthermore, they’re most likely looking towards the next treatment option to achieve the best result. Combining multiple treatments will help both patients and providers achieve the optimal result. When it comes to treating scarring, whether it’s from acne, surgery, or caused by injury, Sculptra and microneedling are a powerhouse combination for treating textural issues and scars.

These treatments are amazing by themselves, but when combined they become the gold standard for treating scars. Sculptra, a poly-L-lactic acid collagen stimulator, works deep within the dermis layer of the skin to revitalize collagen production and restore the structure and volume of the skin. This stimulation of your body’s natural collagen production works to improve the texture and smoothness of the skin. Microneedling’s fine needles create microinjuries, prompting the skin’s natural repair process and breaking up the scar tissue.

The process truly addresses the scarring from both within the dermis and on the surface level of the skin through injections and topically treating it. Sculptra will first be injected into the area, followed by the microneedling service. Not only that, but the remaining Sculptra will then be infused topically into the microneedling treatment, offering a comprehensive addressing of the scarring.

Combining Sculptra with microneedling can offer multiple benefits. Sculptra, as a collagen stimulator, plays a crucial role in scar tissue remodeling through volumizing and refining the skin’s overall texture. This treatment works gradually and provides long-lasting results, as the stimulated collagen continues to work over time, promoting a more youthful, glowing appearance, while minimizing the scarring.

On the other hand, microneedling offers its own set of advantages when it comes to scar treatment. The process of creating controlled micro-injuries on the skin helps enhance the absorption of products, like Sculptra. This dynamic duo allows the active ingredients to penetrate more effectively, maximizing the desired outcomes! Additionally, microneedling stimulates the skin’s natural healing process, triggering increased collagen production. Double win! This boost in collagen will also help in the overall healing and reduction of scars. Microneedling will also improve the skin’s texture and tone, providing a smoother and more even complexion.

Essentially, when Sculptra and microneedling are combined, the treatment synergistically amplifies their effects. These two treatments allow patients to experience more significant and accelerated improvements in scar severity, texture, and overall skin quality.

Moreover, the combination approach allows for personalized treatment plans. With the expertise of one of our qualified nurse injectors, specific scar types and areas can be targeted for optimal results. Customizing the treatment based on individual needs ensures that the best outcomes are achieved.

In conclusion, the combination of Sculptra with microneedling presents a powerful treatment option for scarring. This approach harnesses the collagen-stimulating properties of Sculptra and the benefits of microneedling to yield improved scar appearance.
