Exilis and Sculptra-The 1, 2 Punch
As we age we lose bone, fat and collagen. This can result of youthful facial contours. The youthful face is heart shaped with more volume in the upper face and less in the lower face. I love the combination of Sculptra and Exilis skin tightening for rejuvenating the face. Exilis uses radiofrequency to heat the skin stimulating collagen and elastin production. Sculptra is injected where volume has been lost- the temples, the cheeks, in front of the ears and the lower cheeks. Combining these two treatment modalities creates a synergy. Both procedures require the body to make collagen. The results occur over time and are very natural in appearance. A series of 3 or 4 Exilis treatments is recommended and 2-3 sessions of Sculptra. The result is more gradual, less obvious to others but can restore the heart shape to the face and firm up the skin.
