Q. Do I need to do anything differently after I get injected with Sculptra®?

Yes. To insure the Scupltra powder is evenly distributed under the skin, we will ask you to massage your face every few hours while you are awake for the first few weeks. This helps prevent any small lumps from forming. We will show you how that needs to be done during your treatment with Sculptra.

Q. Can Perlane® be used in place of Botox®?

Perlane® is intened to be used in the lower face. Botox is intended to be used in the upper face. Although there are exceptions, it is usually not a good idea to try to use Perlane® in the upper face, especially in the area between the eyebrows.

Q. Can I combine a Photofacial with Laser Hair Removal? with BOTOX®? with a dermal filler?

It is perfectly fine to have a photofacial and BOTOX® and dermal fillers such as Restylane®, Radiesse and Juvederm on the same day. It would be unwise to have a Photofacial and a treatment for facial permanent hair reduction on the same day because of the amount of heat that will be delivered to the skin. If you wish to have facial permanent hair reduction and a Photofacial, discuss it with Dr. Sinclair so you can be scheduled appropriately.

Q. Is there a cure for Rosacea?

No, there is no cure for Rosacea (yet). Rosacea is a chronic disease which can be managed and reduced. If you have Rosacea, you will probably need some kind of treatment for many years.

Q. Can I get a discount if I need less than the whole syringe of Radiesse?

Radiesse® comes in 1.3 cc tubes or syringes. Unfortunately, there is no safe way to "give" your unused Radiesse® to anyone else. If we know in advance that you only need a very small amount of Radiesse®, we can order a special "touch up" syringe of Radiesse® which is smaller and costs less.
