Sculptra in Portland.
As we get older collagen and elastin, which are essential for providing support and structure, begin to lose their connections, becoming disorganized and dried out giving the skin a baggy and wrinkled appearance. Sculptra injectable dermal fillers help treat these signs of aging, working as a “stimulatory” filler that stimulates the body to produce collagen rather than filling the space under the skin.
After your treatments, you can expect to see results soon after, and studies haveshown that collagen build-up continues for up to 13 months after, giving much longer-lasting results.
We Answer Your Questions About Sculptra Fillers
Your Sculptra Appointment
Sculptra injections are made with a synthetic material called poly-L-lactic acid that is biocompatible and biodegradable. Once injected, it is slowly and naturally absorbed by the body and helps stimulate the production of collagen.
The treatment begins with a facial cleanse as well as a series of “before” photos so that the effects of the procedure can be seen. The treatment area is sterilized and there is the option to apply a local anesthetic to minimize discomfort. In many cases, it is not needed as the treatment is not usually painful.
The appointment will last between 30 and 60 minutes at the VIP Medi Clinic. The doctor will use a thin needle to inject Sculptra into the target areas using a “cross-hatch” technique. The injections are placed in the deepest dermal layers to stimulate collagen production. Afterward, the area will be massaged to ensure even distribution of the product and to reduce hard nodules.
The specialist injects treatment within the deep dermis, where strands of collagen support your skin’s structure. It targets and treats lost volume as well asstimulating collagen production in many different areas in the body. It is used in the treatment of wrinkles and volume loss in the face, such as: Nasolabial folds; Chin wrinkles; Marionette lines; Hollow cheeks; Smile lines
Other areas Sculptra can help with are: Buttocks; Knee area; Décolleté.
It can’t be used to plump lips or treat the under-eye area.
Long-lasting, visible results.
Sculptra injections set the Gold standard high for fillers. They are longer-lasting than other options, and as they begin to break down, actively contribute to the formation of new collagen. Our Sculptra specialists are available to discuss treatment options with you and to develop a personalized plan to meet your needs.
what our patients say
"I definitely plan on utilizing VIP MediSpa as much as I can."
"I’d like to say thanks to Dr. Grishkevich and his staff for making my procedure so painless and easy. I am very pleased with the results and still don’t recognize the person standing in the mirror!"
"Great service! Absolutely the best SPA I have visited in years. Very up-to-date equipment, really liked the interior design. I particularly enjoyed the atmosphere created by the gracious hosts and friendly personnel. Great deals/prices for the services, which they provide."
"Thank you all for everything! I will continue to “dance” through life and look as good as I feel!!"
"I just want you all to know how much I appreciate your office and staff. I am doing well – it has been nearly two weeks. I am still sore but the bruising is going away nicely. I am still a little swollen but can definitely see and feel the difference I was hoping for. I thought it was pretty funny when Dr. Max was so candid and said – “I hope you don’t think you will ever have a completely flat tummy…” No, believe me after 5 kids – 4 births – and my mid-life I just don’t want to feel pregnant anymore and that is how I felt. So I already feel better in my clothes and my ego at this stage of my life is good. My emotions are in check right now and I am starting to think about my future as a single, but elderly lady. Thanks so much for the boost. Good work, everyone. Keep it up! I will check in the next time I am in Portland."
"I love it when I look in the mirror now!! The difference is remarkable. I feel that I look natural, but so much better. It is such a joy to come into the spa, the staff is so warm, and make you welcome. You have a lifetime client and friend. Thank you!!"
"Dr. Max and staff are the best! I love the results of SmartLipo so far so good and I will be back for more!"
"Dr. Max, Sonja and the entire staff make my visits feel relaxed and welcoming. I am so happy with my results! Dr. Max is a perfectionist, which is exactly what I wanted. He is caring! Never condescending. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend the procedure or Dr. Max to anyone."
"My experience at VIP MediSpa gave me freedom to be the young and healthy me that I feel I am – and to look the part. For the first time in many years I am not ashamed of my body! After years of wishing there was just some way to really be rid of my cellulite, I finally actually achieved what I thought might be impossible, and sometimes it still seems too good to be true. I would do it again in a second. Nothing that I experienced in my mesotherapy procedure was more painful than the years of hiding my body. I would do it again in a second!"
"VIP MediSpa has been wonderful. The Staff are pleasant and very helpful. All my questions were answered to my satisfaction. I’m very happy with the results from all my procedures and can’t wait to do more. Max is great and makes me feel comfortable about my decisions I have made. I recommend VIP to my friends and family."
"I joined the VIP MediSpa during the Grand opening and everyone was so nice! The location and décor are perfect! The service 6 months later is still first rate! I would definitely send my friends and family to them! Thank you so much!"
"Absolutely the best SPA I have visited in years. Very up-to-date equipment, really liked the interior design. I particularly enjoyed the atmosphere created by the gracious hosts and friendly personnel. Great deals/prices for the services, which they provide."
"VIP MEDISPA is the best!!!! Dr. Max is a Medical Doctor and his wife a beauty specialist… amazing service! Everything is professional, clean, and friendly! The grand opening was a blast. They offer a range of services at good prices."
"Thank you so much for all you do! I love the results. You have a life-long client and friend. I recommend Dr. Max to anyone who wants to look better and be in the most competent of hands. I appreciate all of you!"
"I am very thankful it was Dr. Max, Sonja and VIP MediSpa who I’ve done this with. Everyone is responsive and helpful, and I know they really care about me. I highly recommend VIP MediSpa."
"I have a very low tolerance for pain – Dr. Max made sure I didn’t feel any discomfort during the procedure."
"I can now wear clothes I haven’t worn in a few years. I put on a pair of work slacks I hadn’t worn since before, and they fell down after I buttoned them! I also am loving that it gave me more incentive to take care of myself better, eat healthier, and exercise more. I am 43 going on 27."
