Becky, a recent client and blog reader, left a comment this week asking about Sculptra. Kathleen Stegman, president of Midwest Medical Aesthetics, responded with some great information about the cosmetic procedure that we want to share with you:
Becky here. You have done some work on me in the past. You might remember me from being “The Gold Lady.” I am looking at Sculptra. I am wanting to know cost. I don’t want to be too full, but probably will need 2 to 3 vials. Sounds like it is over a couple treatments. Please explain procedure, costs, and anything else I might need to know.
I appreciate it!
Now for Kathleen’s response:
Of course I remember who you are! Let’s discuss Sculptra. Sculptra® is a fantastic choice for volumization. Each vial produces 6 cc’s of product. Product can be injected anywhere except for the lips. What this product does that is different from other injectables is that when you inject it, the product is not the “what you see is what you get” like all of the others. Rather, this product will slowly expand over time.
The product looks like cloudy water and is not thick when injected. The water will be absorbed by the body in about a week, and then the little crystals of the poly-L-lactic acid in the Sculptra® will integrate with your collagen and start to expand over time. You just get better and better as time passes. In my humble opinion, this is the best volumizer and the most cost-effective that anyone should start with when looking for volume restoration in the face. Many people require more than one visit (typically about 6 weeks after the first) to get maximum volumization.
Here is the cost break down: Each 6 cc vial is $650. Right now I have a special and a rebate from the manufacturer going on. Purchase two vials and get the 3rd 1/2 off. This means that for $1625 you will get 18 cc’s of product (and you will also get a rebate slip to send in to the manufacturer for $300). This makes your purchase of 3 vials (18 cc’s) ONLY $1325!
This is an unbelievable bargain! I have never seen any cost so low on this, and I don’t believe you ever will again. The special goes until March 31, 2011. Compared to other injectables like Radiesse, Perlane, Restylane, Artefill, this price is unbelievable for 18 cc’s. You would have to pay $6000 for 18 cc’s of Restylane-Lyft™ and that is even with specials of buy 2 and get one free for the 18cc!
So…you can see why this is unbelievable and you should take advantage of this!
Let me know if you hve any more questions or when we can get you in!
