BOTOX®, SCULPTRA® and SMARTXIDE DOT CO2 LASER: the non-invasive facial plastic surgery triad
By Stuart B. Kincaid, MD, FACS
Facial plastic surgery is becoming increasingly popular in today’s society; but unfortunately for many prospective patients, the high cost of such treatments combined with tough economic times has made anti-aging surgery difficult to afford. The good news is that there is an alternative to surgery that is safe, effective, non-invasive and designed to turn back the clock. By combining the effects of Botox®, Sculptra® and the SmartXide CO2 Laser, skilled plastic surgeons can offer patients the advantage of a refreshed, rejuvenated appearance without the physical or financial commitment of invasive plastic surgery.
Beyond Botox®: Introducing the “Liquid Facelift” for superior anti-aging effects
Recent medical advances have yielded many anti-aging injectable fillers and treatments, products that are designed to eliminate wrinkles and improve skin tone without subjecting patients to surgical procedures. Botox® is perhaps the most popular and well-known of these fillers; but now, it is possible to enhance the effectiveness of Botox® with use of the Sculptra® Aesthetic, also known as the “Liquid Facelift.” Sculptra® is a filler that restores volume and youthful fullness to the face, creating the appearance of higher cheekbones and firmer, more supple skin. When administered by needle injection by a trained and board certified cosmetic plastic surgeon, Sculptra® lasts for up to three years, and can be complemented with Botox injections for more dramatic results.
Injectable fillers and laser resurfacing: the “facelift” of the future
After more than 27 years of experience as a board certified plastic surgeon, I feel confident in recommending Sculptra® to my valued clients. Furthermore, I believe that the use of this product in conjunction with Botox® and the SmartXide CO2 Laser treatment yields the best possible results for non-invasive facial rejuvenation. The SmartXide CO2 Laser performs what is know as Fractional CO2 Laser Resurfacing – a procedure that is designed to tighten the facial skin and boost the overall complexion while also helping to reduce fine lines, wrinkles and discoloration. Together, these three treatments can achieve the same lifting, firming and toning results sought by many facial plastic surgery patients – all at an affordable rate and with minimal discomfort and down-time.
