Much like the steps of your skincare routine, aesthetic treatments can become even more powerful when you blend complementary services in a single appointment. Take SkinSpirit’s Flawless Foundation, for example: By combining SCULPTRA® with a photofacial treatment, clients see healthier, more vibrant skin.

To better understand why this treatment is so effective, let’s discuss how SCULPTRA®, BBL®, and IPL work—both individually and together.

What are the benefits of SCULPTRA®?

SCULPTRA® is the new age of anti-aging: An injectable dermal filler that delivers subtle results over time, it builds healthy skin under the surface by replacing lost collagen to give you a more natural-looking appearance, gradually minimizing shallow-to-deep facial wrinkles and folds. (It’s particularly effective for addressing nasolabial folds, marionette lines, and chin wrinkles.)

Similar to other dermal fillers, SCULPTRA® is not permanent, but it can last up to two years. Clients typically see results within about 2-3 months.

For the best results, we recommend an average of three treatments over the course of a few months. And, just like with other fillers, it’s best to avoid strenuous activity for about 24 hours after treatment.

What are photofacials? Understanding the benefits of IPL and BBL

Photofacials are super-safe, light-based skin therapies—perfect for treating symptoms like redness, discoloration, sun spots, or even fine lines.

During a photofacial, a provider uses intense pulsed light (IPL), broadband light (BBL®), or both to target pigment and redness. Both types of light treat the same types of skin concerns, but in different ways. IPL is a non-laser, precision light generator that, as the name suggests, pulses. BBL® utilizes multiple light wavelengths.

Most clients see a difference within 7-10 days after the first treatment, with optimal results after 3-5 treatments. You may experience redness for a few days after a photofacial, and it’s best to avoid strenuous activity for about 48 hours after the service.

How SCULPTRA® & IPL/BBL promote skin health

Combining SCULPTRA® and IPL or BBL® into a single treatment allows you to target the signs of aging and skin damage, both on and below the surface. Together, the two treatments work to improve skin’s texture, tone, and elasticity. Don’t think of it as anti-aging: This is a powerhouse combo for aging well.
