December is Sculptra month at Serenity Medical Spa. For the entire month of December you can buy one vial of Sculptra and receive another vial completely free! For those of you not sure if Sculptra is right for you, here is some information. Sculptra, whose parent company is Sanofi-Aventis, is a poly-L-Lactic acid injectable. It is both biocompatible and biodegradable which means that it will not harm the body and that it can also be broken down by the body. It is primarily used to fill in gaunt or hollow looking cheeks, caused by aging, weight loss or chronic illness. Sculptra is injected deep below the surface of the skin in the areas where fat loss has occurred. Most people need 3 treatments of 2 vials each. Results are gradual and you can usually see visible changes after your second treatment. Your cheeks will appear fuller and more youthful, your under eye area will lose it “baggy” appearance. Treatments longevity can vary, but generally, Sculptra can last up to 2 to 3 years! At that time you may require some minor touch ups to maintain the fresh, youthful look you have grown accustomed to. As with any injectable, there is a slight chance of bruising and swelling, which can be taken care of with concealer and ice. So hurry in to the Serenity Medical Spa to receive your “buy one, get one free” vial of Sculptra! Treatment must begin before December 23, 2010.
