Sculptra® is a collagen stimulating injectable treatment that is designed to restore facial volume and contour the face. In doing so it can smooth out or soften lines and wrinkles.
How does it work?
Sculptra’s main ingredient Poly-L-lactic acid works from deep within the skin’s layers stimulating the body’s own production of collagen. Poly-L-lactic acid has been used successfully in surgical procedures for more than 25 years and is gradually and naturally broken down by the body.
It is a discreet approach to achieving a rejuvenated appearance and once collagen production has been stimulated, natural looking results should become noticeable after about 8 – 12 weeks. This subtle enhancement allows you to maintain your beauty secrets as there is no dramatic, instant change but rather a gradual enhancement as your appearance is plumped up gradually from within. The treatment has sometimes been described in the press as a being like a nonsurgical ‘liquid facelift’ and is less traumatic than surgery though it can only be performed by a trained medical professional in a suitably equipped clinic. More than 200,000 people in over 30 countries have been treated with Sculptra™
Are the results from Sculptra® immediate?
No. At your first treatment visit, it may appear that Sculptra® worked immediately because of the filling effect from the injections and the water used to dilute Sculptra®. In a few days, when the filling effect goes down and the water is absorbed by your body, you may look as you did before your treatment. Sculptra® takes time to gradually stimulate your collagen and correct the weaknesses in your skin. We will see you again a few weeks for you next treatment.
