What is Sculptra?
Sculptra is an injectable facial treatment that helps to regenerate deep facial tissues resulting in restored facial volume, improved lines, wrinkles and skin smoothness. Unlike traditional fillers Sculptra is a bio-stimulant made from Poly-L-lactic acid and acts by replacing collagen and volume over time by stimulating your own natural collagen to form.
The treatment intends to restore facial volume lost due to ageing, weight loss or illness. It can be used to treat deep lines, creases and folds to give a more youthful appearance.
How many treatments will I need?
Typically a series of 2-4 treatments are required at intervals of 6-12 weeks between sessions. During the course of treatment at our skin clinic, collagen growth is stimulated. The results will usually last more than 2 years. We do not produce natural collagen after the age of 21, so people with more natural collagen will require less treatments and less viles of Sculptra in a session typically.
What results can I expect and are they immediate?
No the results are not immediate but give very natural results. Collagen is gradually stimulated over the course of 12 weeks and can require a number of treatments.
Some visible results can be seen over the first few weeks but Sculptra is designed to deliver maximum results over 2-4 sessions of treatment. Each session will provide more and more results. These results can last over 2 years patients often reporting a lot longer.
