Sculptra Overview

Sculptra is a unique injectable treatment for improving the firmness of the skin and increasing volume. As more is understood about the ageing process it is clear that much of the problem relates to loss of volume of subcutaneous tissues.

Sculptra works by stimulating the collagen-producing cells under the skin, so a gradual but natural and long-lasting result is achieved. By giving a generalised increase in volume in these areas a rejuvenating and lifting effect can be achieved over a series of treatments.

Sculptra® can be used to treat:

  • Deeper wrinkles, lines or folds
  • Hollow areas e.g. gaunt cheeks, temples
  • Cheekbones – to add definition
  • Jowls – to lift up saggy jowls

Common Questions

Unlike other dermal fillers, Sculptra doesn't add volume, but stimulates the skin to create its own new collagen. As well as smoothing lines and wrinkles it adds volume to the face – loss of volume and skin thickness is one of the key processes that contribute to the appearance of ageing. This makes Sculptra a very flexible treatment that can be used for any age group.

There is an initial effect from the suspension itself that lasts for a few days, but as the water dissipates this effect is lost. The main effects begin after the first few weeks, and then increase over the next few months with further treatments. Typically the effects of a treatment follow after 6 to 8 weeks.

Sculptra is suitable for any age group: modest treatment in a younger person can give a valuable boost to natural features, while for the older age group lifting of the cheekbones and jaw line can make a major difference.

Yes, Sculptra can be used very effectively in both. The style of treatment is adjusted to respect the distinctive femininity/masculinity for each patient.

This is dependent on age and skin condition but will usually consist of 3 treatments.

The optimum is to have treatment every 4-6 weeks. This gap is to allow collagen to start building from the previous treatment before further injections are carried out.

After a course of treatment the benefits usually last for 18-24 months and sometimes two years or more. Top-up treatments can be given when needed to maintain the effect.
