Sculptra Filler Long-lasting Skin Rejuvenation
Sculptra – skin rejuvenation filler treatment and sculpting system with long-term results. Sculptra restores the skin’s youthful appearance by smoothing wrinkles and helping to restore skin health, tone, and firmness that may have been lost over time.
What is Sculptra?
Sculptra is a non-animal based, biodegradable, injectable dermal filler. It contains poly-L-lactic acid, a synthetic product that has been used in plastic and reconstructive surgery for years. It is also licensed for use in the NHS for facial reconstruction in certain patients.
How does Sculptra rejuvenate the skin?
Sculptra is injected deep into the skin layer where it helps stimulate new collagen production and plumps the skin from within, smoothing out lines and wrinkles.
Collagen is a vital protein for maintaining visible youth, tone and texture in skin. Facial skin will begin to be visibly smoother within 4-6 weeks. Normally 2 or 3 treatments are needed every 2 months to achieve results. However once the process is completed, results last for up to 2 years.
Local and topical anaesthetic is used to ensure your comfort throughout the Sculptra treatment process.
Are there any side effects to using Sculptra?
As with any injection, there may be some swelling, redness or bruising for a few days after an injection of Sculptra. Patients occasionally experience other visible side effects, such as the appearance of tiny lumps or nodules under the skin that may settle over time. You are encouraged to massage the area afterwards to reduce side effects.
