One of the most exciting and always – advancing products at Anushka Spa & Cosmedical Center located at City Place in West Palm Beach is Sculptra. Sculptra has the ability to re-stimulate your collagen growth in specifically designated (and targeted) areas to return these areas to a much more youthful and healthy state. I say “always advancing” because the uses for Sculptra continue to evolve to areas that only a few years ago were destined to age uncontrollably. Now you can achieve body perfection with Anushka Spa & Cosmedical Center under the care of Dr. Bonnie. In this article we will go over how Sculptra can benefit different parts of the body.

Nectifrim medicine for your facial fat atrophy


Originally the FDA approved Sculptra for use in HIV+ patients whose medication caused facial fat atrophy. The cosmetical indication was obtained shortly thereafter. The approval of Sculptra allowed Anushka Spa & Cosmedical Center to restore the loss that we see happening during the aging process. Areas of concern range from bone loss, fat loss, collagen loss, loss of elasticity, etc. While it cannot regrow bone or fat, Sculptra can be carefully placed in specific areas resulting in super growth of collagen. The growth of collagen will mimic the bone foundation as well as the fat softness. The growth of new collagen results in a much firmer, more youthful look due to the health and robust nature. Unlike facial implants and facelifts, the new growth of collagen happens gradually so you don’t leave the house looking worn and tired one day and the next day 10 years younger. During the healing process every day you wake up, you will appear to be younger and younger.


Nothing can make you cringe like a person glancing from your eyes down to your chest and back again and its not because of your enticing cleavage. The décolleté is like a magnet for the sun, resulting in discolored, shriveled, crêpe looking skin. Side sleepers also notice diagonal lines that gradually form, and you wake up one day to find they have come to stay. In the past, heavy moisturizers, acid peels and Botox were used to alleviate the inevitable. Today, we can throw up the moisturizers, cancel the peels and save on Botox with Sculptra at Anushka Spa & Cosmedical Center.
A session or two of precisely placed Sculptra will regrow your skin, firm up the tissue, and mimic that now-elusive layer of fat that used to keep everything looking young and perfect. The chest area will look firmer, healthier, and over-all more appealing.

Upper Arms

The upper arm area is an area that no one pays any attention to until one morning you put on a sleeveless dress, look in the mirror, and wonder what happened. Even those who have endured hours of weights and yoga strengthening end up with that loose, wavy skin, mostly visible on the inner upper arms. This look comes from a combination of aging, fat loss, hormonal deficiencies, and UV damage. Once again, a few easy sessions of Sculptra to this area will rebuild that tissue, strengthen the wavy skin, and make everything look much healthier. While one session typically improves the appearance, two to three sessions are often required depending upon the severity of the condition.

Glytone daily body lotion with broad spectrum sunscreen


With an abundance of golf and tennis players here is South Florida the wrinkly lines above the knees tends to be a big issue. Typically, this area has seen more than its fair share of sun and ends up being loose, damaged skin with no place to go but down. While some glycolic based lotions such as Glytone Body Lotion can help, nothing will firm up that skin like Sculptra. Sculptra stimulates the collagen growth from the inside out while topical products can only perform minimally on the outside. The Sculptra treatment ends up with firmer, healthier, thicker skin that resists wrinkling since the whole dermal layer is denser. While it takes about a month to see a difference, the effect often lasts well over a year.

Procedure for Sculptra

During your initial consultation Dr. Bonnie will go through your complete medical history, including any medical conditions as well as allergies. She will also address any areas of concern too.

On the day of your first Sculptra treatment, Dr. Bonnie will map out the injection sites on your areas of concern directly on your skin. A topical anesthetic may be applied to help with any discomfort. She will then inject your skin using multiple small injections.
You should be able to return to your normal activities after treatment. Dr. Bonnie will advise you of any special instructions.

What To Expect After Sculptra

Most people can return to their normal daily activities after Sculptra injections. Swelling, bruising and other side effects are usually mild and subside within a few days. Doing the following will help speed along your recovery:

  • Apply a cold pack to the affected area for a few minutes at a time within the first 24 hours.
  • Following treatment, massage the area for five minutes at a time, five times a day, for five days.
  • Avoid excessive sunlight or tanning beds until any redness and swelling resolved.
