What is Sculptra?

Known as the liquid Face-Lift, Sculptra can restore facial contour, improve wrinkles, lines and sunken cheeks without resorting to face lifts or cosmetic surgery.

Over time, your skin loses its full, firm, youthful appearance as a result of natural ageing. As the skin starts thinning and losing its natural elasticity, it becomes loose and starts to fold. You also gradually lose the fatty tissue and the supportive bone that helps fill out and give structure to your face causing the skin to sag and wrinkle even more. Sculptra is a simple injectable, volumising treatment that works by stimulating the build up of the body’s natural collagen thereby restoring the lost facial volume, giving you a fuller, younger looking face. Once your treatment is complete, the results can last for more than 3 years. It is great for older faces, restoring the youthful oval of the face which is eliminated as the face begins to sag leading to to jowls and folds. It is also great at recreating cheek bones and filling out the hollows of the temple region. For younger faces it works by enhancing and augmenting your features.

Not only does it increase lost facial volume but its collagen building ability works to improve the quality, texture and luminosity of the skin. Hence it’s great for dull, sallow,distressed skin and acne scarring. Sculptra can be used to improve the quality of the skin of the back of the hands and has even been used to improve the quality of the skin in delicate sun damaged areas like the décolletage.

Make those cheek bones higher, improve the quality of your skin- this can all be achieved by Sculptra!

A proven treatment

The main ingredient of Sculptra™ is poly-l-lactic acid, which has been successfully used in surgical operations for more than 25 years. Sculptra™ was specially developed to repair facial scars and contour defects, and more than 150,000 patients have been treated worldwide since 1999. Sculptra™ is long lasting, biocompatible, and biodegradable.

Which parts of the face is it suitable for?

Sculptra™ is a non-surgical cosmetic treatment that can help to correct:

  • Deep folds between the nose and the mouth (nasolabial folds)
  • Folds around the corners of the mouth (marionette lines)
  • Sunken cheeks
  • Wrinkles and lines in the cheeks or chin
  • Deep scars
Why Sculptra™?

The effect of Sculptra™ cosmetic treatment is gradual and exceptionally natural looking. Two or three treatments are usually required approximately 6-10 weeks apart, and the benefits may become noticeable after about six weeks.

Traditional Filler treatments only reduce wrinkles and creases for a relatively short time. Although permanent implants can remain for years, they can’t accommodate the changes in appearance that happen as you age. Sculptra™ is also a far less invasive procedure than a face-lift or any other type of facial cosmetic surgery.

Clinical studies have shown that the results of Sculptra™ can last for more than three years, which is considerably longer than many other injectable aesthetic treatments. Sculptra™ is very well tolerated. The main ingredient is biocompatible and biodegradable, and has been used by surgeons for over 10 years. More than 150,000 treatments have been administered worldwide since 1999, including 17,000 in the UK since 2005.
