Sculptra is an injectable treatment which stimulates collagen production.

What is Sculptra?

Sculptra is a substance which is made from poly-lactic acid (PLLA), a fully absorbed polymer, which works deeply within the skin tissues to improve its inner structure, over a series of treatments.

Collagen is one of the most abundant proteins in the body. It makes up around 75 percent of our skin. There are several types of collagen and out of these types, type 1 and type 3 are most prevalent in the health and resilience of the skin. Type 1 is the main structural component of the skin, where type 3 plays an important role in healing and repair. Therefore, it’s no wonder that as the ageing process takes its toll and collagen depletes, that we can start to see the effects of this, in our complexion. 

What happens during a Sculptra treatment?

Your skin is cleansed and sterilised and your practitioner will mark out where the injection points will be, after an initial examination. When Sculptra is injected into the skin, the PLLA microparticles stimulate the replacement of lost collagen. Over time, collagen production is increased and your skin looks healthier, feels firmer and appears lifted.

Most patients from the age of 35 could benefit considerably from a Sculptra treatment if they are experiencing skin ageing and dehydration, as well as lines and wrinkles.
Sculptra works with your skin on a cellular level, stimulating it to produce its own natural collagen over time. Sculptra helps to correct shallow to deep facial lines and wrinkles and folds, resulting in a firmer, younger looking skin. It is important that you understand that Sculptra is simply a collagen stimulator and not a heavy, cross-linked dermal filler.
The most common side effects after an initial Sculptra treatment include swelling at the injection site, tenderness, redness, pain, bruising, bleeding, itching and lumps. These are all very normal and will subside in a day or so. Your practitioner will advise on suitable preventative measures to take before your treatment, as well as aftercare, to minimise potential side effects.
Sculptra offers proven efficacy and results that last up to 2 years. These results can include a long-lasting improvement in the appearance of wrinkles, an increase in elasticity and improved overall skin quality and radiance, 12 months after treatment and a more youthful glow to the skin with a lifting effect of skin sagging and laxity.
