As stated by Dr Persky, MD, Persky Sunder Facial Plastic Surgery, Encino:
Points from the Video:
00: 20- Both of these procedures create small little pores in the skin through which substances can be applied;
00:36- What we found is that sculptra is the collagen stimulator;
01:09- So, this is an exciting new application of topical treatments that can penetrate deeper into the skin;
One of the most interesting recent studies that we have seen deals with rubbing sculptra topically after the skin has been treated either with the fractionated carbon dioxide laser or with micro needling. Both of these procedures create small little pores in the skin through which substances can be applied, and they get down deeper into the skin because of their effect. What we found is that sculptra is the collagen stimulator, so by putting particles of sculptra on these wounds, we are finding that there are better results ultimately with the patients, particularly when treating the chest and other areas- the neck. We are also seeing that with micro needling, other substances that help the skin can be applied as well, such as vitamin E or retinoids. So, this is an exciting new application of topical treatments that can penetrate deeper into the skin after the skin has been traumatised with either laser or micro needling.
