Sculptra in Orlando continues to grow in popularity. Dr. George Pope discusses the benefits of this unique age-defying injectable.
Online PR News – 22-May-2012 – Orlando, FL – Adults seeking a subtle alternative to decreasing fine lines and wrinkles in the face are selecting Sculptra Orlando from Orlando Plastic Surgery Center for the best in gradual, natural-looking anti-aging results.
Both women and men use Sculptra Orlando in order to achieve a more youthful appearance. Leading the reasons for the increased interest in Sculptra is the outcome of the results, which can last up to two years, nearly five times longer than other injectables.
Sculptra, an FDA-approved product, works by filling in lost collagen, helping to raise concave areas of the face and improve facial contours. It is used to treat smile lines, marionette lines, and chin wrinkles. It is not for use in the lips or periorbital area. The key ingredient in Sculptra is poly-L-lactic acid, which is a material that was used for years in dissolvable stitches.
Typically, it takes a series of 3-4 treatments in order to see results from Sculptra, but that all depends on the patient. After the first treatment, patients should not expect to see results, but after the second and third treatment, the signs of anti-aging will begin to emerge, and continue to reveal more youthful skin for up to two years. It’s a gradual change over a long period of time, resulting in a more natural transformation compared to other injectables.
Following treatment, George H Pope, MD, FACS, and Linda Gilliland, ARNP, PhD, advise patients to follow the “Rule of 5” — massaging the treated area for five minutes, five times a day, for a period of 5 days. This post-treatment care is critically important in order to evenly distribute Sculptra and avoid clumping under the skin.
Last December, the practice hosted an informative seminar about Sculptra Orlando that included a live demonstration of an initial Sculptra treatment by Dr. George Pope and Linda Gilliland. They also showed guests how to properly massage the treated areas. Following the presentation, guests were able to ask questions about Sculptra Orlando.
"We really enjoy getting together with our patients and educating them on procedures, innovations, and news about plastic surgery," said Dr. Pope. "They trust our expertise and opinions, and we take that very seriously as cosmetic and plastic surgery professionals."
The most recent networking event by the Orlando plastic surgeon included a live webinar on Orlando gynecomastia surgery in April 2012. Dr. Pope tweeted an update to his Twitter page: "My practice held its first webinar this week. The subject was treatment of Gynecomastia, a breast condition in men. It was a great success!"
As people begin to learn more about Sculptra Orlando, it is becoming a more requested product at Orlando Plastic Surgery Center, according to Dr. Pope. Of course, the most popular injectables remain Botox and Juvederm, and in fact, the practice is currently offering a Botox and Juvederm combo deal that must be purchased by phone.
According to staff at the practice, when one syringe of Juvederm is purchased along with a minimum of 15 units of Botox, the patient saves $125. The deal must be obtained by May 31, 2012, and be used by August 31, 2012. Other specials are also being offered on items including Clarisonic products, Obagi products, TNS Recovery Complex, TNS Essential Serum, and more. Simply call the practice to learn more.
