About Sculptra

Sculptra stimulates collagen production which creates volume to correct the signs of facial ageing to produce long-lasting natural and youthful look.

The ageing process and its pace among individuals is variable and may be influenced by factors such as gender and genetics but also activities like smoking or the impact of stress.

Such factors influence the skin and its underlying tissues meaning the balance between skin, fat, muscle, and bone, is lost and progressive changes occur in their volume, shape, position, and composition.

These structural changes are key contributors to age-related facial reshaping.

Sculptra is an unparalleled treatment for long-lasting facial rejuvenation replacing lost volume, restoring the defining facial arcs and convexities of youth, increasing skin thickness through collagen stimulation and eliminating deep folds and wrinkles.

What is Sculptra®?

  • Sculptra works differently from traditional fillers. It’s a unique collagen replenishing treatment that helps to gradually and subtly reduce lines, wrinkles and folds.
  • It is an injectable product that contains microparticles of poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), a synthetic polymer from the alpha-hydroxy-acid (AHA) family.
  • PLLA is biocompatible and biodegradable. It has been widely used for more than 30 years in products such as dissolvable stitches, and for tissue regeneration, and is typically non-toxic even in large quantities within the body.
  • Sculptra can effectively treat a variety of areas of your body that may be concerning you, namely face, neck, décolletage, hands and feet. On average, 3 treatments are required and results should be noticeable after approximately 6 weeks. However, in some patients this may take longer or require more treatments.
  • Made by one of the world’s leading pharmaceutical companies, sanofi Aventis, Sculptra is only administered by fully trained medical professionals and is FDA approved for cosmetic and medical use.
