Can you do a “vampire” facelift after Sculptra?

Can you do the Vampire Facelift if you did sculptra four months ago

In general, you will get more results and more consistent results after a series of 2-4 Sculptra treatments than with Selphyl (aka Vamppire lift), so I’m not sure why you would want to?  A good average rule of thumb is that with Sculptra you will need –  in your 30s – 3 vials, 40s – 4 vials, 50s – 5 vials, etc.   Each treatment is 1-2 vials usually and treatments should be at least 4 weeks apart and many experts prefer 8-12 weeks (including me).   More on Selphyl.

I’m wondering if you are thinking about changing to Selphyl because this wasn’t explained well in education process about Sculptra?  It’s also important to remember that it takes 3 months to see the full results after a treatment..  It’s benefits are that it is extremely natural looking (done well) and very stable and long lasting thus cost effective over the long run.  More on Sculptra.

 Hope this helps,  Dr. I

One of the best investments in your skin is your daily skincare. Why? Because you can prevent many problems with blotchy skin color, lack of glow, texture, some types of acne, and fine lines with good skincare products. You can also correct some of these problems with effective skincare products. Great skincare is often more expensive because quality ingredients are expensive. Some companies spend on research/development which benefits all of us and adds to the cost. Are they worth it? In general - yes! I have handpicked some of what I consider to be the best skin care products, and offer them for sale on SkinTour's shop. This is based on my team and I's testing and research at our clinic. Many of the products are in my own regimen. What could be better than using skin care products a dermatologist uses?!
