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 results give a more youthful and natural-looking appearance.
SCULPTRA literally refreshes the way you look by restoring your skin’s natural contours and smoothing out the wrinkles, creases and folds. Traditional dermal fillers only address wrinkles, lines and folds; SCUPTRA works differently. It replenishes lost volume by stimulating growth of your own natural collagen to treat the underlying causes of facial ageing.
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- to produce a refined, more youthful- looking appearance. During the course of your SCULPTRA treatments, collagen growth is stimulated. Over time, you will notice changes to your face that can last for more than 2 years.
No. Sculptra targets the underlying causes of the signs of facial ageing, it can give noticeable results that emerge subtly and can last more than 2 years. Some visible improvements can be seen within the first few weeks of the 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 is a gradual process, each treatment session will yield results that are more noticeable.
- SCUPTRA replaces lost collagen in the middle to lower face and chin area. It treats these three areas:
- Upper face: SCULPTRA is used to treat temples.
- Middle part of the face: nasolabial folds, tear trough, cheek augmentation, submalar volumising.
- Lower part of the face: marionette lines, pre-jowl sulcus, mandibular line.
SCULPTRA is not recommended for glabella, front headlines correction and lips. There are other treatment options for these areas.
Side effects of Sculptra treatment may include injection site discomfort, redness, bruising, bleeding, itching, and swelling. Other side effects may include small lumps under the skin that are sometimes noticeable when pressing on the treated area. Larger lumps, some with delayed onset with or without inflammation or skin discoloration, have also been reported. In a key clinical study the numbers of small and larger lumps were low and most resolved without treatment.
