The Problem

As we age, our skin loses elasticity and lines and wrinkles in the face become more pronounced. The skin can also lose volume and start to sag, which also makes us look older.

Sculptra is a long-lasting injectable treatment that works with your skin to repair itself resulting in gradual and natural deep tissue regeneration.

As we age our bone, fat, and muscle all begin to decrease in volume which affects your face’s underlying support structure which results in the soft tissue of the face becoming slack. That in combination with the natural breakdown of collagen in the middle layer of skin means your skin will have visible lines, grooves and feel thinner, drier and less firm.

All of these symptoms are a sign of ageing and when you treat these elements you will achieve a naturally younger looking face. Sculptra as a treatment aims to treat all of the symptoms at once, in the same way they appeared – gradually, naturally and subtly.

It is important to remember that Sculptra is a gradual treatment so it is unlikely that you will notice a dramatic change after your first treatment. The injectable solution is made up of poly-L-lactic acid which is biocompatible, biodegradable FDA approved material that has been used by doctors for more than 30 years. Poly-L-lactic acid stimulates your body to produce new collagen.

The aim of sculptra is not to change your appearance or features but to make you look like yourself but with plumper, more youthful skin.

Sculptra can be used to treat;

  • Upper Face – Temples
  • Middle part of the face – Nasolabial folds,(deep lines between the nose and mouth), Tear Trough, and Cheek Augmentation
  • Lower part of the face – Marionette lines, pre-jowls sulcus and the jaw line

The Problem

As we age, our skin loses elasticity and lines and wrinkles in the face become more pronounced. The skin can also lose volume and start to sag, which also makes us look older.

The Treatment

A Sculptra appointment will begin with your face being cleansed and your face will have been analysed to determine the areas in need of volume. A topical anaesthetic or numbing cream will then be applied to make the treatment more comfortable for you. Once the cream has taken effect your nurse or doctor will inject Sculptra into areas that need improvement using a fine needle.

After the injections your nurse and doctor may massage the areas treated which is something you will need to continue with for the next five days post-treatment.

The Results

The results from Sculptra are not immediate as the treatment works by targeting the underlying causes that develop the visible signs of ageing. The results you will see are gradual but visible signs of improvement can often be seen within the first few weeks of treatment.

One of the key advantages of Sculptra is that it lasts up to three times as long as other commonly used fillers.
