Frequently Asked Questions
What is it used for?
Sculptra™ is a temporary collagen stimulator which allows significant but subtle and natural looking volume restoration of the mid and lower face. As we age the mid face in particular loses roundness and we develop cheek hollows, sagging, nasolabial lines and marionette lines. . It also helps to restore lost facial volume to give you a fuller, younger-looking face. The enhancement is long lasting and looks completely natural.
Sculptra™ - The Liquid Face Lift
Sculptra™ is a remarkable technology probably used by many celebrities who deny having surgery but look to have defied age and remain still naturally good looking.
Sculptra is an FDA-approved facial filler specifically designed to fill in facial hollowness by replacing lost collagen.
Sculptra is administered in multiple injections at three to six week intervals, and the results can last up to two years. Each treatment session lasts about an hour, and patients are able to resume their daily activities right away.
Unlike other dermal fillers, Sculptra™ is poly-lactic biosphere stimulates your own collagen production over several months to restore volume. This new volume is thus your own body at work making new collagen. The resulting tissue is natural with normal contours, restored mid- face volume. A firmer jaw line, better cheek bones and apple cheeks, reduction is sagging and firmer contours.
Are the results from Sculptra™ immediate?
No. At your first treatment visit, it may appear that Sculptra™ worked immediately because of swelling from the injections and the water used to dilute Sculptra™. In a few days, when the swelling goes down and the water is absorbed by your body, you may look as you did before your treatment. Sculptra™ takes time to gradually correct the depression in your skin. Doctor will see you again in a few weeks to decide if you need more Sculptra™ injections.
What is the final like and how long does it last?
The final result takes 6 -10 months to achieve. You would expect this as collagen synthesis takes time to develop. That said, women and men in their 30s-40s who have this treatment report visible results within a much shorter space of time, some even after the first treatment. Most patients - those in their 50s - would need to have the second treatment before visible results occur. It lasts up to 2 years and smaller top-ups can maintain the effect thereafter.
Recovery after Sculptra™
Normal activities can be resumed immediately; however, patients are advised to stay out of the strong sun. Touchup treatments may be required up to six times every six weeks to achieve an optimal result Complications and Risks of Sculptra™.
