How is Sculptra compared to Radiofrequency microneedling for skin firmness restoration at your Medical Spa?

We offer two specialized techniques at our Medical Spa, Sculptra and Radiofrequency Microneedling, which are designed to enhance skin firmness. Sculptra is an injection that helps to stimulate collagen production, while RF microneedling uses radiofrequency energy to penetrate the skin. Both methods have their own unique characteristics and are effective in improving skin firmness. The purpose of this comparison is to examine and contrast these two treatments in detail.

RF Microneedling

We utilize the Rohrer Aesthetics-provided Pixel8 RF Microneedling machine, which combines radiofrequency energy with microneedling to create precise micro-wounds in the skin. This process heats up the deeper skin layers, which prompts the body to produce more collagen. The RF energy is delivered through microneedles with pinpoint accuracy to target specific areas and stimulate the formation of new elastin and collagen, encouraging the body’s natural healing process.

This procedure is versatile and can be applied to a variety of facial and body areas, such as the hands, neck, face, and décolletage. The treatment is intended to improve skin texture, firmness, and tone. Typically, several sessions are required for optimal results, with most individuals undergoing three to four treatments spaced four to six weeks apart. After the procedure, downtime is minimal, with mild sensitivity, swelling, and redness, which typically subside within a few hours to a day. However, some people may experience swelling and redness for up to two days.

The results of the treatment become noticeable within a few weeks of the initial session and continue to improve as the body’s collagen remodeling progresses. To maintain the results, maintenance treatments may be recommended every six to twelve months.

Sculptra Collagen-Stimulating Injections

Sculptra is a type of filler that is injectable and consists of poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA). It can trigger the natural collagen production of the body. Sculptra microparticles create a scaffold when injected into the skin, which gradually stimulates the growth of new collagen. This process leads to an improvement in the firmness, thickness, and elasticity of the skin.

Sculptra is primarily used to refine contours, enhance volume, and improve firmness on the face, specifically in the cheeks, temples, and jawline. Typically, patients undergo 2 to 4 sessions spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart to get optimal results. The effects of Sculptra become noticeable over several months as collagen production continues.

Patients undergoing Sculptra treatment experience minimal downtime and can quickly resume their regular activities. Temporary swelling, bruising, or redness at the injection sites are common side effects that usually disappear within a few days. Sculptra’s effects can last up to two years or more, but occasional touch-up treatments may be necessary to maintain optimal results.

RF microneedling and Sculptra collagen-stimulating injections are both excellent options for enhancing skin firmness. They work differently and are suitable for different areas of the face and body. The treatment choice depends on individual concerns, goals, and preferences. Combining both treatments can also enhance the results. It is best to consult a qualified skincare professional to determine a customized treatment plan based on specific needs.


How do you compare CO2 laser, Erbium Yag, and IPL laser treatments in your Medical Spa?

It is important to consider the differences in how CO2 laser, Erbium YAG laser, and Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) work, their level of penetration, and the particular skin conditions they target when comparing them.

CO2 Laser

We utilize the Phoenix CO2 laser system from Rohrer Aesthetics.

  • CO2 lasers produce light that attracts water molecules in skin cells. This light causes controlled thermal damage, leading to the evaporation of skin cells and the stimulation of collagen synthesis.
  • CO2 lasers are classified as ablative and can penetrate deeper into the skin than Erbium YAG lasers, while removing the outermost skin layers.
  • They are highly effective in treating severe sun damage, deep wrinkles, scars (including acne scars), and skin laxity.
  • Additionally, CO2 lasers improve the overall texture and tone of the skin.
  • After a CO2 laser treatment, recovery time is typically longer than that of Erbium YAG and IPL, lasting from 7 to 14 days. During this period, the skin undergoes healing, and noticeable redness, swelling, and peeling may occur.


Erbium YAG Laser

We use the Rohrer Aesthetics Spectrum laser system for Erbium YAG treatments.

  • Erbium YAG lasers have the ability to deliberately ablate and cause thermal damage to skin cells by operating at a wavelength that is absorbed by water. They are popular for superficial treatments as they are less invasive than CO2 lasers.
  • Compared to CO2 lasers, Erbium YAG lasers have less penetration depth, which makes them ideal for targeting the epidermis and superficial dermis.
  • Erbium YAG lasers are effective in treating mild to moderate wrinkles, fine lines, sun damage, superficial scars, and age spots. They can also improve skin texture and tone.
  • The downtime following Erbium YAG laser therapy is typically shorter than that of CO2 lasers, lasting between 3 to 7 days. Although there may be some redness, swelling, and peeling, it is usually less noticeable than with CO2 lasers.


Intense Pulsed Light (IPL)

We utilize the Rohrer Aesthetics Spectrum laser system to provide IPL laser treatments.

  • Using a broad-spectrum of light pulses, IPL targets melanin (pigment) and hemoglobin (blood vessels) in the skin selectively.
  • This process results in the removal of unwanted pigment or vessels while also promoting the production of collagen.
  • IPL primarily focuses on the epidermis and superficial dermis to address sun damage, hyperpigmentation, redness (like rosacea), vascular lesions, and uneven skin tone. It can also help to improve fine lines and mild wrinkles.
  • After an IPL treatment, most people experience minimal downtime. They might experience mild redness and swelling, which usually subsides within one or two days. They can typically resume their normal activities soon after the treatment.


To summarize, the following conditions are most effectively treated with CO2, IPL, and Erbium YAG laser therapies:

  • CO2 lasers are ideal for treating severe sun damage, deep wrinkles, and scars.
  • Erbium YAG lasers are suitable for treating mild to moderate sun damage, superficial scars, and fine lines.
  • IPL is most effective in treating vascular lesions, redness, hyperpigmentation, and sun damage.


How are Alexandrite laser, ND Yag laser, and 810 nm diode for laser skin removal at your Medical Spa?

The Epilaze laser system by Rohrer Aesthetics offers a comprehensive suite of lasers, encompassing Alexandrite, ND Yag, and 810 nm diode options. It is essential to consider differences in wavelength, effectiveness, compatibility with various skin and hair types, and skin penetration while comparing lasers for hair removal. Let us analyze these lasers comparatively.

Alexandrite Laser

  • The Alexandrite laser operates at a wavelength of 755 nm and is capable of absorbing melanin in hair follicles. This makes it possible for the laser to selectively target follicles that contain high levels of melanin while minimizing any damage to the skin.
  • Compared to lasers such as the diode laser (810 nm) and Nd:YAG laser, the Alexandrite laser can penetrate the skin to a shallower depth, making it ideal for targeting follicles located in the epidermis and upper dermis.
  • If you have light to medium skin tones and dark, coarse hair, the Alexandrite laser is considered one of the most effective lasers for permanent hair reduction. Therefore, individuals with these characteristics are particularly likely to benefit from this treatment.

810 nm Diode Laser

  • The 810 nm diode laser operates at a wavelength of 810 nm, which allows it to effectively target melanin in hair follicles more than the Alexandrite laser does.
  • This laser’s ability to penetrate the skin more deeply makes it particularly useful for treating thicker and deeper follicles.
  • Because it can penetrate deeply into the skin, the 810 nm diode laser can reach follicles in the deeper dermis, making it a suitable treatment option for a variety of skin types and hair colors, including those with lighter skin tones and dark, coarse hair.

Nd: YAG Laser

  • The Alexandrite and diode lasers are best suited for treating finer hair and darker skin types due to their shorter wavelength, while the Nd:YAG laser has a longer wavelength, allowing it to penetrate deeper into the skin, making it effective for all skin types, and capable of removing fine or resistant hair.
  • The number of sessions required to achieve permanent hair reduction varies depending on factors such as hair color, thickness, skin type, and treatment area. Typically, several sessions spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart are necessary.
  • Alexandrite, 810 nm diode, and Nd:YAG lasers each have their own benefits and are suitable for different skin and hair types. Choosing a laser for hair removal depends on individual needs, treatment goals, and the practitioner’s expertise. Seeking advice from a qualified professional can assist in selecting the best laser for achieving desired results.
