Please note Sculptra is a medical procedure and should be performed in a clinical environment by a medical professional. At Medispa S10 your procedure will always be carried out by a highly trained and experienced doctor or nurse prescriber.
Sculptra is a unique injectable dermal filler; it is used to restore volume loss to the face and improves lines and wrinkles. Sculptra works by stimulating collagen production, thickening the deeper layers of the skin and producing a natural and more rejuvenated appearance. Sculptra is FDA approved for the reduction of facial lines and wrinkles.
What is it?
Sculptra is a facial injectable treatment made from Poly-L-lactic acid. This unique treatment stimulates your body’s own collagen which is responsible for giving the skin its firm youthful appearance. Unlike traditional dermal fillers, which give instant results, Sculptra gives a gradual and subtle result built up over time.
How does it work?
Collagen is responsible for giving our skin its strength and volume. As we age, our body’s own collagen production slows down, whilst the existing collagen our skin contains is broken down due to free radicals created from UV exposure, pollution and smoking, along with the body’s natural ageing process. Sculptra stimulates the body to increase its collagen production to restore the skins youthful appearance.
What happens during treatment?
After a thorough consultation, a local anaesthetic cream will be applied to the area to be treated. Your qualified practitioner will then inject the Sculptra into the required areas. Each individual treatment will be different as your practitioner will discuss with you where the treatment will be done to get the desired result.
What results should I expect?
Results will vary from person to person, but Sculptra will give a gradual and long lasting result. It will take at least 6 weeks from the initial treatment for any results to be seen, after which you should see a continual improvement throughout your course of treatment and for the following few months. Sculptra will restore your skin’s lost volume giving a fuller, more natural look and improve lines and wrinkles.
Who is it suitable for?
Sculptra is suitable for all ages. It is good for someone who has had a rapid or large drop in weight and needs to build up volume in the face. It is also indicated for individuals who have lost volume from the natural ageing process and who may prefer not to have facial surgery. Due to its gradual results it is often a preferred treatment choice for men.
How many treatments do I need?
Most people will require three treatment sessions at approximately 6 weekly intervals. More treatments may be required.
How long will it last?
The results of Scuptra can be seen for up to two years, sometimes longer.
What’s the down time?
As with any injectable treatment there may be some swelling to the treated areas immediately after treatment. There may also be some redness, tenderness and bruising can occur. The side effects generally last between 2-6 days.
Your medical practitioner will give you your special aftercare instructions. For optimum results it is important to massage the treated area twice daily for 2-4 weeks after treatment.
