An anti-aging facial for the needle-phobic.
Sculplla is one of the latest wrinkle-erasing facial treatment now used by many of A-listers in Hollywood. It is a sheet mask on steroids, drives an ingredient called Poly L Lactic Acid (which is the exact same stuff you’ll find in the filler Sculptra at your derm’s office) as well as a blend of anti-aging favorites like caffeine and niacinamide into the top layer of your skin to plump wrinkles.
There’s no downtime, except avoiding water and sweat for 12 hours, and the results are cumulative According to the company that makes Sculplla, one treatment can last for six weeks and a series of three treatments done a week apart can last for five months
To start,we use a lightweight lactic acid peel to exfoliate my skin and clear the way for the mask’s ingredients to penetrate. Next, we spread the first step of Sculplla, the serum, across skin and then applied the dry sheet mask on top, carefully molding it to the contours of the face. The sheet is made with encapsulated hydrogen, that activates when it touches the serum, to help drive the filler ingredient into the skin. It has also been shown to lend some skin brightening benefits, to boot. After 10 minutes, the mask dissolves and dries like a film. “It turns into a sticky tape, so you when you remove it makes your skin really smooth and unclogs pores.
And using the filler ingredient sans needles has real science to back it up. Sculptra—which was originally approved by the FDA in 2004 to help HIV patients regain lost volume in their faces and lasts under the skin for up to two years—stimulates your body’s own collagen production for long-term benefits. Now, diffusing it throughout the surface layers of the skin, not just deep underneath, has become a new sought after cosmetic approach. Some derms are even applying it to patient’s skin like a serum immediately following microneedling treatments, so the injectable can seep into the tiny channels left by the needles.
