As we age, our skin begins to thin, lose volume and elasticity, causing the appearance of deep lines and wrinkles. Sculptra is a biostiumulator, which offers long-lasting results in the correction of facial ageing by stimulating new collagen to form.
Sculptra is a new type of facial injectable made from poly-L-lactic acid, a biocompatible, biodegradable synthetic material that has been used by doctors for years. The treatment works by stimulating the body to replenish lost collagen, therby rejuvenating the skin and replacing lost volume for a natural looking result.
Sculptra treatment is ideally suited to those who have facial ageing such as lines and wrinkles and loss of volume. You must have a healthy immune system in order to undergo treatment and it is important that you are not allergic to any ingredient of the product. Those with a history of keloid formation or hypertrophic scarring may also not be suitable. Book a consultation to find out if this treatment is right for you.
Sculptra involves a series of injections so treatment can be slightly uncomfortable however local anaesthetic will minimise any pain.
Sculptra treatment involves four injection sessions that are scheduled about three weeks apart.
Side effects of Sculotra treatment may include injection site discomfort, redness, bruising, bleeding, itching and swelling. Other side effects may include small lumps under the skin that are sometimes noticeable when pressing on the treated area.
The effects of Sculptra treatment are not instantly visible, but the treatment develops with time in order to deliver natural looking results that last for around two years. Sculptra gives impressive results for volume loss and lines and wrinkles.
