Get more out of Sculptra…Posted on October 6, 2010
Here’s a neat little trick, courtesy of Dr. Laurie Casas, which was presented at the “hot topics” part of the ASPS meeting in Toronto: Sculptra users can get a better result if they combine the injectable treatment with the use of Retin-A cream. Dr. Casas explained that, since both products work by stimulating collagen, it made sense to try them together to see if a synergistic (additive) effect would happen. Her study found that the combination worked especially well for patients younger than age 55, and particularly well for those patients getting Sculptra in the cheeks and mid-facial areas.Often the patients found that they required less Sculptra product to achieve the desired result, when they used the Retin-A cream.
