Sculptra Fillers

Sculptra

Keen to restore volume by stimulating your body’s own natural collagen production? Want to reduce the appearance of sunken temples, sagging cheeks or loose skin around your jawline? Then a Sculptra injection treatment is the ideal solution! Aging is typically accompanied by loss of volume, facial sagging and the formation of fine lines and deeper wrinkles. The first unwelcome signs of this process start to manifest at around 25 years of age. A Sculptra collagen stimulator treatment can help to:

  • Fill sunken temples;
  • Restore volume to sunken cheeks;
  • Lift tear troughs and cheekbones;
  • Soften and reduce the appearance of nasolabial folds (laughter lines);
  • Lift loose jawlines.

Hyaluronic acid fillers are liquid substances with a gel-like structure. They actively reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by filling and lifting the space directly underneath the problem area. This type of filler enables a highly targeted treatment that enhances and accentuates specific areas. The results are instantly visible and last for a minimum of 14 months.

Natural results

Collagen stimulators such as Sculptra are used to reduce volume loss by restoring the skin’s deep, underlying structure. The results manifest gradually after treatment and can last for 2.5 to 3 years.

What is Sculptra?

Sculptra comprises poly-L-lactic acid – a natural substance which is also manufactured by the body and thus 100% organic. Sculptra stimulates the skin’s collagen (connective tissue) production, diminishing the depth of wrinkles. You’ll require one to three treatments, depending on your age, lifestyle, skin quality and the desired results.

How does Sculptra work?

The liquid is injected into the deepest layer of your skin (the deeper dermis) where it triggers the regeneration of your body’s own collagen. This restores the structure and volume of your skin and produces a natural lifting effect. The liquid is completely absorbed by your body within a few days of treatment and collagen production commences approximately 4 weeks later. The collagen builds up gradually over a period of 4 weeks to 3 months, replenishing facial volume and reducing deep lines and wrinkles. Your skin will feel fuller, firmer and more supple as a result.

Sculptra FAQs

Sculptra can be used to treat the entire face or to target specific areas such as your temples, cheeks or jawline. The doctor will discuss which treatment area is key to achieving the desired results during your consultation.

Sculptra focuses on volume recovery in the deepest layers of your skin. The results therefore manifest gradually and become more pronounced with repeated treatment. Collagen production starts to kick in 4 weeks after treatment, at which point you’ll notice the first effects. Optimal results are visible after 3 months.

The collagen that’s produced as a result of your Sculptra treatment remains in place for 2.5 to 3 years.

Most people don’t experience any significant pain during treatment, although this does vary from person to person. An anaesthetic fluid is added to the Sculptra as standard. The resulting numbness disappears within half an hour of treatment. You may experience some stiffness in your jaw one day later. This will disappear on its own within 1-3 days. The treated area may feel a little tender, however, this is more tangible than visible.

Sculptra is a safe and effective treatment, providing it’s performed by an experienced Royal Dutch Medical Association-registered cosmetic doctor and using the correct technique. The treatment is FDA-approved and has been used worldwide since 1999. Sculptra is made from a synthetic substance known as poly-L-lactic acid, which is naturally absorbed by the body.

Sculptra is designed to be injected into the deepest layers of your skin, where it can effectively stimulate collagen production. Our highly experienced doctors are trained to perform Sculptra treatments safely and correctly. The chance of collagen accumulation is therefore negligible.

The treatment requires zero downtime and the risk of bruising is extremely small. Any redness around the injection sites can be readily camouflaged using mineral make-up. We recommend staying out of the sun and avoiding saunas or solariums for one week following your Sculptra treatment. You should also massage the treated area for 3 minutes, 3 times per day, for 3 days after treatment to ensure the product’s even absorption. Your doctor will supply you with the necessary instructions at the end of your treatment.

These treatments are each used to promote different results; relaxation, volume recovery or accentuation. They can therefore be combined with Sculptra to optimally preserve and enhance your natural appearance.

We start with 1-2 vials for those aged 30 years or over and recommend building up to 2-3 vials for those aged 35 years or over. 1 vial restores approximately 10 years’ worth of volume loss.
