Sculptra® polylactic acid against facial sagging

This treatment with polylactic acid provides an evident clinical improvement for the facial sagging treatment without the need for conventional surgery. Sculptra treatment reverses face aging progressively, without resorting to aggressive procedures or surgical interventions.

Polylactic acid is biocompatible and completely absorbable.

Polylactic Acid works by renewing the skin at the cellular level with the progressive formation of new collagen. Polylactic acid has been used for many years in resorbable surgical threads.

How does polylactic acid work?

SCULPTRA is injected into the dermis, through small infiltrations, generating minimal discomfort. It is injected below the surface of the skin in the area where fat has been lost.

Then the product induces the formation of new collagen naturally and progressively, so that the patient perceives a better appearance gradually from the first session.

Several sessions (3 on average) may be required to obtain the desired aesthetic result.

The results are very long-lasting since once the treatment is finished, the results can be seen for up to two years.

Sculptra® is the original collagen biostimulator that has been shown to gradually replace1,2,3 the structural support of the skin that is lost during aging and improves skin laxity

Are the results immediate?

At your first session, you may notice a slight swelling caused by the injection of the solution used to dilute SCULPTRA. After a few days, the swelling subsides and the solution is absorbed by the body. It will take time, at least 1 month, until the patient clearly sees the definitive effects.

Required Sessions

Sculptra produces a progressive and natural improvement, which requires several treatment sessions. On average, 3 sessions are recommended in consecutive months. Logically, each case must be assessed individually by the doctor to establish the most convenient number of treatments.

Once the treatment is finished, the results are very long-lasting, up to 2 years4.

Maintenance sessions are recommended.

Your body reduces collagen production throughout adult life. By age 40, most people lose up to 25% of their collagen production.

Can I have other treatments?

He poly-L-lactic acid Sculptra is perfectly compatible with other medical procedures, in fact, its association with other techniques (botulinum toxin, laser therapy, peels, implants and fillers) allows even better results. It will be the specialist doctor who determines the best combination of these treatments for each patient.

Sculptra Security

This synthetic biopolymer is widely used safely in multiple medical devices, so it does not require an allergy test prior to treatment.

The active ingredient in Sculptra is poly-L-lactic acid (PLA), a substance that constitutes a very attractive treatment due to its simplicity of application, its efficacy and safety profile. It is a substance that has been used for more than 30 years for medical applications such as absorbable sutures, in bone screws and plates, and as a means of drug delivery.

Sculptra will be gradually and completely eliminated from the body, with no residue left in the body.

Frequent questions

Is it a filler or a biopolymer?

Neither. This product works from the production of collagen, it is a natural and biocompatible product with the body that degrades and stimulates collagen over time.

What is it made of?

The main ingredient in Sculptra® is poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA). Lactic acid is already present in the human body.

Is there any downtime?

This treatment involves minimal downtime. Patients can usually return to their normal daily activities after treatment ends, although some prefer to wait for the swelling or redness to subside.

Who can use it?

Sculptra can be used by anyone of legal age and without allergy to polylactic acid, who needs to increase volume in sunken areas, correct folds, eliminate wrinkles, erase scars and prevent sagging skin.

It is contraindicated in people with skin inflammation, collagen diseases, serious systemic diseases or autoimmune diseases, as well as in pregnant people.

Eyelid Surgery in Men - Male Blepharoplasty

eyelid-surgery

The cosmetic surgery of the eyelids in men, also known as Male blepharoplasty, presents certain challenges with regard to the eyelids of women. In the case of women, the crease of the upper eyelid is approximately 9 mm from the lashes, while in men it is 7 or 8 mm. This makes the male eyelid fuller than that of women, and the shape of the platform between the lashes and the crease is less accentuated.

If the eyelid surgery in men were performed the same as with women, unwanted results would be obtained, ending a less manly appearance in the patient. The lower eyelids should not change their appearance or shape, and should maintain their contact with the cornea (that is, the colored part of the eye), because the result is not attractive when you see white under the eye (scleral show) .

Blepharoplasty without surgery for men

Non-surgical blepharoplasty is performed with laser technology from carbon dioxide. This is responsible for destroying the keratinocytes of the skin, which generates an instantaneous tightening of the skin, achieving an effect "lifting ”of eyelids without surgery.

According to the experience of Dr. Ricardo Hoogstra, removing skin from the upper eyelid generates in most patients a decrease in the eyebrows, creating a sad, tired and aged look. Eliminate excess Skin and scarring on the lower eyelids produces in many patients functional and unsightly deformations.

This is why, the Dr. Ricardo Hoogstra developed in 1995 a technique that rejuvenates the eyelids using laser technology without surgery, which does not leave scars and does not remove skin. This avoids the unnatural results and complications of conventional surgeries.

Eyelid lift without surgery, goodbye to scars

To treat lower eyelid pouches an incision is made in the conjunctiva, and on the other hand, that of the upper eyelids Through a small incision in the inner corner of the upper eyelid, it does not require suturing.

Blepharoplasty transconjunctival laser 

Skin rejuvenation is performed with a Micro Fractional Carbon Dioxide Laser (Firexel) . This tool has a skin analyzer that allows us to adapt the parameter to each type of skin. Transconjunctival laser-assisted blepharoplasty does not dry out skin and avoids many of the unwanted effects seen with the conventional technique. This laser-assisted operation rejuvenates the eyelids, preserving normal anatomy and leaving a fresh, natural look and without surgical stigmas.

Ultrasound for skin tightening

Today we also use Ultrasound for tighten the skin of the eyelids and the rest of the face, neck and neckline. HIFU produces results that can be seen immediately after the procedure is performed without skin damage and without recovery time. But the most significant results occur as time passes, reaching its maximum effect 60 days after the procedure.

How does the carbon dioxide laser work in the eyelid lift ?.

The light energy of Firexel removes superficial layers of skin aged by sun damage and over the years. On the surface of the skin it eliminates spots, dark circles and wrinkles. In the depth of the tissue it produces a heating and stimulation of the elastic and collagen fibers, producing a tightening effect on the skin.

Carbon Dioxide Laser-assisted eyelid surgery requires a new type of operator training. Hoogstra Medical Centers offers refresher courses to national and foreign doctors who want to enter this field.

Ultrasound allows us the following advantages:

  1. Leaves no scars.
  2. Always natural result.
  3. It does not damage muscle structures like the conventional technique does.
  4. Ultrasound and Carbon Dioxide Laser rejuvenates all the skin on the eyelids.
  5. Less edema.
  6. Fewer bruises.
  7. Quick reintegration into work.
  8. It does not lower the eyebrow as the conventional technique does.
  9. It improves the expression of the gaze.

Alternative procedures for the rejuvenation of the eye and its contour.

Sometimes, excess skin on the upper eyelid is the result of drooping eyebrows, in which case the indication could be the use of Botulinum toxin or a Endoscopic lift of the forehead, nose and eyebrows.

Local anesthesia

The intervention is performed with local anesthesia and sedation. The patient wakes up immediately after completing the procedure and retires to his home a few hours later.  All interventions are performed with local anesthesia and sedation, which provides safety and comfort. Sedation is performed by the anesthesia manager at Hospital Fernández or another doctor on his team.

Duration of the intervention

The residence time in the Clinic is approximately 3 to 4 hours. The duration of procedure is approximately 30 minutes. Surgery and postoperative are not painful. This surgery, in addition to leaving no visible scars, produces fewer edema and bruising than traditional eyelid surgery. Patients traveling from the interior of the country or abroad must be the day before surgery and may return 48 or 72 hours after surgery. Patients from all over the world travel to Argentina to undergo surgery with Dr. Ricardo Hoogstra.

Postoperative eyelid surgery

Eyelid lift without surgery

eyelid-surgery

The skin of the eyelids is the finest in the body and one of the first in have wrinkles and furrows. When we communicate, we direct our gaze to the eyes of our interlocutor, which is why the expression of the gaze is so important.

In some people, your eyelids and eyebrows can give you the expression of tiredness, sadness and old age. There are others who generate the opposite.

My specialty is the eyelids, the position of the eyebrows and giving the patient a fresh, youthful, rested and natural appearance.

Dr. Hoogstra uses laser technology, ultrasound and since 1995 he does not require cutting the eyelids, and therefore, does not leave scars.

Patients from all over the world come to my center to perform these procedures. Now let's see what are the reasons why patients attend more frequently.

Rejuvenation of the eyelids with carbon dioxide laser.

Blepharoplasty without surgery is performed with carbon dioxide laser technology. This is responsible for destroying the keratinocytes of the skin, which generates a skin tightening instantly, achieving an effect ""lifting ”of eyelids without surgery.

According to the experience of Dr. Ricardo Hoogstra, removing skin from the upper eyelid generates in most patients a decrease in the eyebrows, creating a sad, tired and aged look. Eliminate excess Skin and scarring on the lower eyelids produces in many patients functional and unsightly deformations.

This is why, the Dr. Ricardo Hoogstra developed in 1995 a technique that rejuvenates the eyelids using laser technology without surgery, which does not leave scars and does not remove skin. This avoids the unnatural results and complications of conventional surgeries.

In the depth of the tissue it produces a heating and stimulation of the elastic and collagen fibers, producing a tightening effect on the skin.

Ultrasound allows us the following advantages:

  1. Leaves no scars.
  2. Always natural result.
  3. It does not damage muscle structures like the conventional technique does.
  4. Ultrasound and Carbon Dioxide Laser rejuvenates all the skin on the eyelids.
  5. Less edema.
  6. Fewer bruises.
  7. Quick reintegration into work.
  8. It does not lower the eyebrow as the conventional technique does.
  9. It improves the expression of the gaze.

Periorbital wrinkles, Crow's feet

These wrinkles are produced by the contraction of the orbicularis muscle, which has the function of closing the eye.

In these cases we use botulinum toxin, with which I not only manage to reduce the wrinkle but also raise the tail of the eyebrows.

This provides a more rested and cheerful appearance.

Wrinkles

Over the years the thin skin of the eyelids loses elastin and collagen, this added to the sun damage, with the continuous gesticulation wrinkles begin to appear.

-Is it possible to improve the quality of the skin of the eyelids without having to resort to surgery?

-YES, absolutely YES.

It is impossible to rejuvenate all the skin on the eyelids, pulling out a thin strip of skin and leaving a scar.

This is absurd and the only thing it brings are complications of all kinds, unnatural results and deformations.

I use to rejuvenate the skin of the eyelids laser technology With this I rejuvenate the entire eyelid unit and if necessary I also reduce wrinkles on the rest of the face.

The results are natural and very long-lasting.

What I am looking for is to attenuate wrinkles, eliminate periorbital furrows or crow's feet, raise the eyebrow a little if necessary and give volume to the cheekbones and tear canal.

By associating these procedures I achieve a young and expressive look which transmits a greater degree of energy and vitality.

Eye bags

He Dr. Ricardo Hoogstra He developed this treatment after verifying that many of the patients who consulted him for dark circles had a lack of volume in the cheekbone or in the area between the cheekbone and the nose, known as the tear canal.

The lack of volume of the cheekbone and / or the tear canal allows the skin of the eyelids to extend towards the cheeks, this increase in the length of the eyelid and its dark color increases dark circles.

The time of the procedure 5 minutes, painless, great satisfaction of the patient, who immediately continues his normal life.

Fat bags on the eyelids

If the patient presents adipose bags in the lower and upper eyelids then if it is necessary to operate.

For these patients, develop a technique that also does not leave scars.

Complications of cosmetic nasal surgery, non-surgical correction

One of the most frequent complications that we see in nasal cosmetic surgery is the excessive resection of nasal cartilage. The depressions and asymmetries produced by the excessive resection of nasal tissue is difficult to correct.

Cartilage grafts must be performed that can be extracted from the ears or costal cartilage or from the nasal septum. These nasal surgeries are open, you have to make an incision in the columella and take off the entire nasal cover. Once the tissue deficiency has been identified, the grafts are placed to restore harmony and shape. These are complex surgeries and they don't always work well.

Today we have a new non-surgical alternative.

We can fill in tissue deficiencies with the placement of hyaluronic acid. This is an outpatient procedure with no recovery time, it is done in the office.

Hyaluronic acids last approximately 14-20 months in the cartilage deficiency area.

Non-surgical correction of complications in nasal cosmetic surgery

Non-surgical rhinoplasty or remodeling without nose surgery, allows you to improve the shape of your nose without undergoing invasive surgery, obtaining faster results, with less healing time and practically without pain. This novel technique allows modeling the nose through an outpatient procedure that is performed in the office with local anesthesia, achieving excellent natural results, improving the patient's physiognomy, being able to continue their daily activity the next day.

With non-surgical rhinoplasty we can model the ala cartilage, project the nasal tip, correct deficiencies of the nasal dorsum. It is also possible to improve the nose-lip relationship, working on the projection and the nasolabial angle.

What does the treatment consist of?

With this technology we not only improve the aesthetics of the nose, but also the lips. As people age and the tip of the nose drops. This technique allows us to lift it and improve the aesthetic relationship with the lip. The same occurs in very young patients who have practically no lip because the long nose eliminates the beauty that the mouth could have.

With this technique it is possible to:

  • Raise the nasal tip in young patients and in those in whom it has decreased over the years.
  • Correct unsightly deformations in patients who have undergone surgical rhinoplasties and who are not satisfied with the result.
  • Give volume to the back.
  • Project the tip of the nose.
  • Improve the angle between the lip and the nose.

With this technique it is not possible to:

  • Narrow bones of the nose, correct a wide nose.
  • Improve respiratory insufficiencies.
  • Take out a very prominent back.

Dark spots Female external genitalia

Genital Whitening

The female external genitalia, the perianal region, the inner thighs are not exposed to the sun, however they can be stained for different reasons:

  • The skin phototype of the patient has an important role. Patients with dark skin have a greater chance of staining.
  • Birth control hormones increase the chances of hyperpigmentation.
  • Pregnancy too.
  • Diseases with hormonal disorder or polycystic ovarian disease.
  • Waxing with hot wax or epilation with intense pulsed light.
  • Excess weight can promote hyperpigmentation due to increased friction.
  • Tight clothing can also produce stains by friction, rubbing.
  • The passage of time favors hyperpigmentation due to the sum of these factors.

These laser treatments are applied between six to eight monthly or biweekly sessions, depending on the degree of hyperpigmentation that the person has. The prior evaluation is important so that the specialist indicates the treatment according to the characteristics of the skin.

Dermatologists also sometimes perform home help with depigmenting creams to help the laser depigmentation process.

The genital area deserves to receive the best aesthetic care to keep it fresh, hydrated and healthy; your appearance is also important.

Advantages of laser treatment

The objective of the laser treatment is to achieve a progressive whitening of the treated areas. Each session lasts approximately 15 to 20 minutes depending on the number of areas that you. You want to try.
