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

We offer both Sculptra and Radiofrequency Microneedling at our Medical Spa. Both Sculptra collagen-stimulating injections and RF microneedling are effective techniques to improve skin firmness, but they work differently and have unique characteristics. In this analysis, we will compare the two treatments and examine their respective attributes.

RF Microneedling

We use the Pixel8 RF Microneedling equipment supplied by Rohrer Aesthetics, which combines microneedling that produces controlled micro-injuries in the skin with radiofrequency energy that heats the deeper layers of the skin to stimulate collagen production. Precise delivery of RF energy via microneedles targets specific regions, promoting the body’s natural healing process and encouraging the formation of new collagen and elastin.

This adaptable treatment can be used on facial and body areas, such as the face, neck, décolletage, and hands, to improve skin texture, tone, and firmness. Achieving the best results usually requires multiple sessions, with most individuals undergoing three to four treatments spaced four to six weeks apart. Downtime is minimal, with mild redness, swelling, and sensitivity immediately following the procedure, usually resolving within a few hours to a day, but slight swelling and redness may last for a day or two.

The outcomes become apparent within weeks after the first treatment and continue to improve as collagen remodeling progresses. Maintenance treatments may be recommended every six to twelve months to maintain the results.

Sculptra Collagen-Stimulating Injections

Sculptra is an injectable filler made of poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) that stimulates the body’s collagen production. When injected into the skin, Sculptra microparticles create a scaffold, which gradually triggers the development of fresh collagen. This process leads to improvements in skin thickness, elasticity, and firmness.

Sculptra is primarily used on the face to enhance volume, refine contours, and improve firmness, particularly in areas such as the cheeks, temples, and jawline. For optimal results, patients typically undergo 2 to 4 sessions, spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart. As collagen production continues over several months, the outcome is noticeable.

After Sculptra treatment, downtime is minimal, and patients can promptly resume their usual activities. Common side effects like temporary swelling, bruising, or redness at the injection sites usually subside within a few days. Sculptra’s effects last up to two years or more, but occasional touch-up treatments may be necessary to maintain optimal results.

Both RF microneedling and Sculptra collagen-stimulating injections are excellent options for enhancing skin firmness. They work through different mechanisms and are ideal for various facial and bodily areas. Deciding on the appropriate treatment will depend on individual concerns, goals, and preferences. Combining both treatments can also amplify results. It is best to seek advice from a qualified skincare professional to determine a tailored treatment plan based on specific needs.


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

It is crucial to understand the differences in the mechanism, depth of penetration, and targeted skin issues when comparing CO2 laser, Erbium YAG laser, and Intense Pulsed Light (IPL).

CO2 Laser

We utilize the Phoenix CO2 laser system from Rohrer Aesthetics.

  • CO2 lasers emit light with a wavelength that highly absorbs water molecules in the skin cells. This light energy causes controlled thermal damage that vaporizes the skin cells, eventually stimulating collagen synthesis.
  • CO2 lasers are considered ablative; thus, they remove outer skin layers and penetrate deeper compared to Erbium YAG lasers. They are highly effective in treating deep wrinkles, severe sun damage, scars, including acne scars, and skin laxity.
  • CO2 lasers also enhance overall skin texture and tone. Following CO2 laser treatment, the downtime is typically longer than with Erbium YAG and IPL, ranging from 7 to 14 days. During this period, the skin undergoes healing, and notable redness, swelling, and peeling may occur.


Erbium YAG Laser

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

  • Erbium YAG lasers emit a wavelength that water absorbs in skin cells, leading to controlled ablation and thermal damage. They are considered to be less ablative than CO2 lasers, making them suitable for superficial treatments.
  • Erbium YAG lasers have a shallower penetration depth than CO2 lasers, which makes them ideal for targeting the epidermis and superficial dermis.
  • These lasers can effectively address mild to moderate wrinkles, fine lines, sun damage, superficial scars, and age spots while also enhancing skin texture and tone.
  • The downtime following Erbium YAG laser treatment is often shorter than that of CO2 lasers, usually ranging from 3 to 7 days. Although there may be some redness, swelling, and peeling, it is typically less noticeable than with CO2 lasers.


Intense Pulsed Light (IPL)

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

  • IPL uses broad-spectrum light pulses to selectively target melanin (pigment) and hemoglobin (blood vessels) in the skin. This process heats and eliminates unwanted pigment or vessels while also stimulating collagen synthesis.
  • IPL focuses primarily on the epidermis and superficial dermis and can effectively address sun damage, hyperpigmentation, redness (like rosacea), vascular lesions, and uneven skin tone. It may also improve fine lines and mild wrinkles.
  • After an IPL treatment, most individuals experience minimal downtime and may have mild redness and swelling that typically resolves within a day or two. They can generally resume normal activities promptly after treatment.


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

  • CO2 laser effectively treats deep wrinkles, scars, and severe sun damage.
  • Erbium YAG laser is well-suited for treating fine lines, superficial scars, and mild to moderate sun damage.
  • IPL effectively treats sun damage, hyperpigmentation, redness, and vascular lesions.


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’s crucial to consider differences in wavelength, skin penetration, effectiveness, and suitability for different skin and hair types when comparing lasers for hair removal. Let’s examine these lasers comparatively.

Alexandrite Laser

  • The Alexandrite laser operates at a wavelength of 755 nanometers (nm) and is known for its ability to absorb melanin in hair follicles. This allows it to effectively target follicles rich in melanin while minimizing damage to the skin.
  • Compared to the 810 nm diode and Nd:YAG lasers, the Alexandrite laser has a shallower penetration depth, making it ideal for targeting the epidermis and upper dermis follicles.
  • The Alexandrite laser is considered one of the top lasers for permanent hair reduction and is highly effective for individuals with light to medium skin types and dark, coarse hair.
  • It is particularly well suited for those with light to medium skin tones and dark, coarse hair.

810 nm Diode Laser

  • The 810 nm diode laser is designed to operate at a wavelength of 810 nm, which helps it target melanin in hair follicles more effectively than the Alexandrite laser.
  • It can penetrate deeper into the skin, which makes it especially effective at addressing thicker and deeper follicles.
  • Thanks to its ability to penetrate deeper, the 810 nm diode laser can target follicles in the deeper dermis, making it an effective treatment option for a wide range of skin types and hair colors, including lighter skin tones with dark, coarse hair.

Nd: YAG Laser

  • The Nd:YAG laser has a longer wavelength of 1064 nm compared to the Alexandrite and diode lasers, making it penetrate deeper into the skin, perfectly suited for treating darker skin types and finer hair.
  • It targets follicles in the deepest dermis and is effective for treating darker skin types, making it ideal for individuals with finer or resistant hair.
  • All skin types, including darker tones, can benefit from its effectiveness.
  • Multiple sessions spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart are usually required to achieve permanent hair reduction, with the number of sessions varying based on factors such as hair color, thickness, skin type, and treatment area.


In conclusion, the Alexandrite, 810 nm diode, and Nd:YAG lasers all offer unique advantages and are suitable for different skin and hair characteristics. Choosing the most appropriate laser 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 hair removal results.
