Your natural beauty in total discretion…
What is Sculptra®?
Sculptra is a biocompatible and biodegradable injectable material known as poly-L-lactic acid that naturally stimulates your cells to produce their own collagen. The result aims to give a more youthful and natural-looking appearance. Sculptra can restore your skins natural contours and smooth out wrinkles, creases and folds. Traditional dermal fillers only address wrinkles, lines and folds, Sculptra works differently. It works to replenish lost volume by stimulating growth of your own natural collagen to treat the underlying causes of facial ageing.
How does Sculptra® work?
Sculptra works to target the underlying causes of the signs of ageing such as collagen loss. Sculptra is a facial injectable that works gradually in a series of treatments, an average of 3 injection sessions with an interval of 4 to 6 weeks between each session. During the course of your Sculptra treatments, collagen growth is stimulated. Over time, you’ll notice changes to your face that can last for more than 2 years.
Are the results from Sculptra® immediate?
No, because Sculptra targets the underlying causes of the signs of facial ageing, it can give you noticeable results that emerge subtly and can last for more than 2 years. Some visible improvements can be seen within the first few weeks of treatment, but Sculptra treatment is designed to deliver its unique effects, with an average of 2 to 3 treatment sessions, over the course of a few months. Because the production of new collagen formation is a gradual process, each treatment session will yield results that are more noticeable.
Does the Sculptra® treatment hurt?
As with all injections you will probably feel some discomfort. You may even notice a brief burning sensation at the injection site. Applying an ice pack after treatment will help relax your skin. If necessary your Aesthetic Nurse will also give you a local anaesthetic.
Are there any side effects after having Sculptra®?
Your Aesthetic Nurse will give you special aftercare instructions. For optimum effects it is important to massage the treatment area twice daily for two weeks.
