As our body ages, it loses a significant amount of collagen and elastin. Collagen and elastin are what make our skin supple, firm, and younger-looking. These two provide our skin elasticity to “snap back” into place when pinched. Aging slows down the body’s natural ability to produce both collagen and elastin.

Recent advancements in aesthetics treatments can boost collagen and elastin production and help the skin regain lost firmness. These advancements in aesthetics are delivering some fantastic results (results will vary). Sculptra is a component known to assist in collagen rejuvenation and address a variety of skin conditions. Sculptra will make you look youthful as it stimulates collagen production. Collagen production will also provide long-term anti-aging benefits.

What is Sculptra?

Sculptra is an exceptional anti-aging solution for enhancing facial features. Sculptra is different from other dermal products on the market. Dermal fillers consist of hyaluronic acid; they work upon only one particular area, such as the cheeks, chin, jawline, lips, or under the eyes. Such fillers may show instant results but only produce results for 6-18 months. Sculptra is unique from hyaluronic acid fillers. It is made of poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) and is used in areas such as the temples, hairline, high cheek in front of the ears, and the jawline impacting the structure of the face and rejuvenating the skin. Sculptra aids in smoothing wrinkles, fine lines and addresses volume loss in the face.

How does Sculptra work?

During the consultation, the injector will run a comprehensive assessment of the skin that needs to be treated. The injector will review details regarding the patient’s medical history, medications, or any allergies. Medical history is crucial to avoid any risks and complications during the procedure. Patients will need to stop any blood thinners for a few days to reduce the risk of bleeding. The procedure begins with mapping injection sites and proper cleansing of the area. Topical anesthesia will be given to reduce any discomfort. The injector will begin the procedure by delivering multiple injections into the skin. This treatment is only minimally invasive, and you will be allowed to go back to your routine instantly post-treatment. Your injector will advise you of any special instructions.

General guidelines:

  • Ice pack the treated site intermittently after the procedure.
  • Avoid direct sunlight until the swelling is gone.
  • Do not perform any excessive physical activity for 24 hours.

How long does Sculptra last, and how many Sculptra treatments are needed?

Sculptra results can be seen as early as two months after the initial treatment and can last up to 24 months. Yearly treatments are optimal to continue in the production of collagen. Patients will see a gradual improvement. The number of treatments required varies per individual. The number of treatments is dependent on the amount of collagen or volume loss in the body before treatment. Consultations before treatment will determine how much Sculptra is needed for each patient.

Who is a Good Candidate for Treatment?

Individuals suffering from volume loss on the skin, wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging skin due to weight loss, aging, or other factors are perfect candidates for this treatment. Sculptra must be avoided by individuals who show any allergic reactions to any of the main ingredients.

How much downtime is thereafter a treatment?

A patient can go back to his routine right after the procedure. The majority of patients are advised a day of calmer activities to give a soothing relief for the redness or swelling in the treated area. Reactions such as swelling subside within a few days, but patients are advised to limit strenuous physical activity. Tenderness, itching, swelling, or slight bruising are common side effects in all types of fillers.


If you experience severe volume loss in the cheeks or show interest in eliminating the wrinkles and skin laxity Sculptra Tampa, FL will be a great treatment option. Booking a consultation with After Glow aesthetic & wellness can be done online or by calling (813) 344-5511.

One of the most highly recommended and highly sought after medical skincare treatments right now is microneedling with platelet rich plasma! We are thrilled to offer this phenomenal treatment at After Glow aesthetics & wellness. Take a look below:


What is PRP Microneedling?

When applied to the skin, under topical anesthesia, sterile microneedles are used to gently create microscopic channels deep into the dermis of the skin. These tiny channels stimulate an individual’s own body to produce new collagen. The PRP factor to this treatment means that your body’s own healing properties are isolated and extracted and delivered deep into the dermal tissue through the microneedles. This stimulates overall skin tightening and rejuvenation.

The mixture of both Multi-depth microneedling and PRP is changing the skincare game for scarring, stretch marks, uneven skin tone, and texture. That makes the treatment at After Glow aesthetics & wellness a one-stop-shop treatment that can address most skin concerns and issues all in one unparalleled treatment!

What is the Procedure Like?

The process begins with a specialized medical-grade numbing cream applied to overall treatment areas and left in place for about 30 minutes. We want to ensure that the skin is numbed before we start the procedure.

How Long does the procedure take?

The process usually takes about 20-30 minutes but can be longer or shorter, depending on your needs. You feel no pain or discomfort, and the treatment is safe.

What Are the Side-Effects?

There are no symptoms after the procedure, but you may see slight redness in your face for a few days. Some patients have experienced itchiness, but it goes away after a day or so.

A non-surgical Booty lift (BBL) Is one of the most popular procedures among women in recent years, but it can be extremely uncomfortable and expensive. PDO threads can be used to lift your buttocks with 2-3 minimally invasive sessions!

The PDO threads are inserted after numbing is applied to the area. At After Glow aesthetics & wellness in Tampa, FL we offer various forms of anesthesia for anyone who may be feeling a bit nervous about the procedure. The treatment usually lasts 45 minutes to 2 hours and has minimal side effects such as mild bruising and swelling. The PDO Thread Lift is achieved by the injector gently placing, tightening, and using the threads to lift the buttocks. The PDO Threads will dissolve over time, and collagen will build up to replace them!

Our patients have said that they feel comfortable and at ease when they visit us at After Glow aesthetics & wellness and love our PDO Thread treatments, as well as our cellulite treatments for a global buttocks refresh! Come in and see one of our Injectors, and they can help you create a plan to both anti-age and rejuvenate the buttocks and go over the rest of your medical aesthetic needs.

What are PDO threads?

PDO (polydiaxone) threads are a dissolvable suture material made of protein. They are used to lift loose tissue in the face and body. It is one of the most effective non-surgical ways to lift the buttock tissue.

How do they work to lift the buttocks?

The threads are preloaded on a blunt tip, a hollow cannula inserted under the skin. The threads have tiny barbs on them that grasp the tissue and reposition the skin. The thread is tightened, and the hollow blunt cannula is removed without leaving any scar! Usually, 4-6 threads per buttock are used.

How long do they last?

The threads will fully dissolve within 4-6 months, and your body will produce its own collagen where the thread was, which will secure the lift and give lasting results.

How much does it cost?

Each person will need a different amount of threads, depending on their anatomy.

Here at After Glow aesthetics & wellness, we specialize in all things anti-aging. One of the very first anti-aging treatments most men and women need is our Signature Cheek and Under Eye Treatment. What this entails is volume restoration to the mid face and under eye region for a refreshed and youthful look.

Starting in our mid-thirties, we begin to lose close to a teaspoon of volume in our face every year. That includes bone, muscle, and fat loss, as well as thinning skin and loss of collagen. A teaspoon of volume is equal to five syringes of filler! When volume loss in our face starts to happen, we begin to notice hollowing and contour changes in places like the cheeks, under eyes, temples, and around the mouth. Volume loss also contributes to facial laxity in the lower face, jawline, and aging of the lip region.

So you might be thinking, who is a good candidate for this treatment? The answer is anyone who has noticed volume loss and hollowing in their midface/cheek region and under their eyes. Typically when our providers complete a new patient assessment, 9 out of 10 times they suggest our Signature Cheek and Under Eye treatment. This is due to the fact that basically anyone over 30 could use the volume and support that it provides to the face. When volume is restored in those areas, it provides a refreshed, natural, and lifted look. On average, it takes about 2 sessions to achieve full correction in these areas.

For the first session, we usually start out with 1 syringe of mid-face / cheek filler per side and half a syringe of under eye filler per side, totaling 3 syringes. After about 3-4 weeks, we will complete a follow up visit to evaluate if more product is needed. The second session typically totals 1-2 syringes if additional volume is needed. Once full correction is achieved, most patients come in every 9-12 months to maintain their refreshed look!

If you feel like you have tired, dark, or sunken under eyes, this treatment is for you! Schedule a complimentary anti-aging consultation with one of our amazing providers today at After Glow aesthetics & wellness!
