Your face is the first thing that people notice about you. But when your appearance no longer reflects the way you feel on the inside, it may be time for a change…
In time, your skin loses it's full, firm, youthful appearance. This is the result of the natural ageing process. Over time, your skin is damaged, becomes thinner, or loses its natural elasticity. As a result it becomes loose and starts to wrinkle.
Fat tissue, which also helps to fill out your face, is lost. This reduction in skin volume can make your face look thin and narrow, so that you may possibly look older than you are. Fortunately, Sculptra can help to smooth out lines and wrinkles and restore the lost volume in a natural way.
Sculptra is injected deep into the dermis, or subcutaneous layer and works in the lower layers of the skin in order to smooth and firm the treated area of the face. Sculptra is a unique substance which is gradually and naturally broken down by the body.
The main ingredient of Sculptra is Poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), which has been used successfully in surgical procedures for over 25 years. It is immunologically inert, therefore requiring no allergy testing before treatment.
The number of necessary injections depends on many different factors. After your first treatment your doctor will recommend whether you need any subsequent treatments. Generally, several treatments are necessary to obtain the required results.
However, in contrast to some other treatments, which require frequent refresher sessions, upon completion of your Sculptra programme, the results will last up to 2 years.
Sculptra is also being used for cheek augmentation and to reduce the appearance of scarring.
Qualified doctors/nurses will discuss the procedure before any treatment, explaining any possible side effects.
