Trifecta of Youth: Sculptra, Filler & Neurotoxin

Trifecta of Youth: Combining Treatments  

Combining dermal fillers with other medical spa treatments like Sculptra and neurotoxin can provide enhanced results and address multiple aesthetic concerns simultaneously. Picture it like the layers of a wedding cake: structure, filling, and icing. The combination of the three components produces the ideal cake, and the same applies to medical spa treatments. In this blog, we are specifically going to focus on the combination of Sculptra, dermal fillers, and neurotoxins. Or, as our providers call it, the “Trifecta of Youth.” Picture Sculptra as the structure of the cake, fillers as your cake, and neurotoxins will be the icing of a smooth, pristine cake. Without one, the cake may exist, but the result wouldn’t be optimal. Read on to learn more about how stacking treatments, such as Sculptra, fillers, and tox, can help you achieve the best result.  

Sculptra + Dermal Fillers + Neurotoxins = Comprehensive Facial Rejuvenation   

These three treatments are trying to achieve one end goal: treating unwanted signs of aging. However, each treatment focuses on different aspects of facial aging in slightly different ways. Dermal fillers are primarily used to restore lost volume and plump up hollow areas, which will also smooth out wrinkles and fine lines. Sculptra, on the other hand, stimulates collagen production, which helps improve skin texture, firmness, and elasticity. Think back to the wedding cake; you can mimic structure with filling but having a good foundation will enhance the longevity of your results. Finally, neurotoxins, such as BOTOX, Dysport, or Xeomin, temporarily relax specific muscles to reduce dynamic wrinkles, such as crow’s feet or frown lines. Relaxing the muscles will correct facial wrinkles, and regular treatments will help to prevent them from worsening. By combining these three treatments, patients can achieve a more comprehensive facial rejuvenation by addressing various signs of aging.  

Synergistic Effects   

When used together, dermal fillers, Sculptra, and Botox can have synergistic effects. This means that combining the three treatments can help you and your provider achieve the most natural-looking and ideal result. Dermal fillers instantly add volume and enhance facial contours, while Sculptra stimulates collagen production over time to gradually improve skin quality. Botox can complement these treatments by temporarily freezing facial muscles, preventing the formation of new wrinkles, and extending the longevity of filler results. The combination of these treatments can provide a more harmonious and natural-looking outcome.  

The combination of these treatments can also help extend the longevity of the results. While dermal fillers provide immediate volume restoration, Sculptra stimulates your body’s natural collagen production, which will continue to enhance skin quality over time. Neurotoxin’s capability of minimizing muscle movement can reduce the breakdown of dermal fillers, increasing the longevity of results. Thus, combining treatments produces longer-lasting effects compared to using them individually.  

Pricing, Expectations, and Other Common Concerns  

Fortunately, there has been a decline surrounding stigmas about getting cosmetic procedures. However, it is still your face, and many patients might be hesitant at the idea of receiving multiple different procedures. Our providers are aware of this and make natural-looking results a priority with patients, creating customized treatment plans so they know they’re on the same page with their patients. Each person’s aesthetic concerns and goals are unique. By combining different treatments, medical spa professionals can create customized treatment plans that cater to the individual’s specific needs. They can strategically use Sculptra, dermal fillers, and neurotoxins in different areas of the face to achieve balanced and tailored results. This personalized approach ensures that the treatment addresses the patient’s concerns comprehensively.  

Many patients are also concerned about the pain and downtime of cosmetic procedures. In most cases, Sculptra, fillers, and neurotoxin treatments involve minimal downtime, allowing patients to resume their daily activities soon after the procedure. By combining treatments into one appointment, patients can achieve multiple benefits without significantly extending the recovery period. This makes it a convenient option for those seeking noticeable improvements without significant disruption to their daily lives. Your provider will also take your worries and budget into account when it comes to receiving multiple treatments.       

At The Spa at MidAmerica Plastic Surgery, located just outside of St. Louis, Missouri in Glen Carbon, Illinois, we have three experienced and highly trained injectors to provide for you. Ashley Noeth FNP-BC, Ciara Bickline RN-BSN, and Taylor Gall RN-BSN can help create an individualized plan for you that considers your specific needs and goals. They can assess your facial anatomy, discuss your concerns, and recommend the most suitable treatment (or combination of treatments) to achieve your desired results.

Although our providers are typically able to treat patients with multiple services in one day, it doesn’t mean you have to! You can take it slow, spacing out your appointments to stay within your budget and avoid any overwhelming feelings. Your medical spa visits should be a treat, not something to stress about! We also offer a couple of financing options, including PRIVI, CareCredit, and our Premier Membership. If you are a dedicated neurotoxin patient, we recommend signing up for our membership because you receive 20% off per unit of BOTOX, Dysport, and Xeomin.  

We offer complimentary consultations to discuss your goals and create a treatment plan! To schedule an appointment with one of our providers, call 618-307-6233, text 618-249-5268, or fill out one of our contact forms and our patient care coordinator will be in touch with you.
