Sculptra is a facial treatment that gives you deep tissue regeneration to help reduce the signs of ageing in your face. Unlike traditional dermal fillers, Sculptra works to replace lost collagen and replenish volume in your face more subtly over time, giving you a more natural looking appearance.
This is a very important concept and one that explains why a facelift may be the wrong thing to do or only part of what to do if you want to look younger! A young face has fullness and roundness in the cheeks, under the eyes, in the lips and around the mouth. This fullness causes light to reflect with very little shadow.
An older face will show a loss of the fullness of the cheeks, temples, the lips and area around the mouth and will show fat loss under the eyes which creates a hollow effect. Where there used to be light, now there are shadows. By replacing the volume loss, you reverse the creation of shadow and restore the reflection of light and the appearance of youth, energy and vibrancy.
This volume replacement fills the skin so that it is lifted; not surgically with scalpel and sutures, but lifted by the formation of your body’s own collagen – collagen that was created in surrounding the microscopic particles that makeup Sculptra. A facelift will remove excess skin, and to some degree, this will lessen the shadow effect, but a facelift will not restore volume. And volume is what makes you look young.

The evolution of the wrinkle filler has led to an amazingly effective product called Sculptra. Sculptra is not a wrinkle filler – it’s a volumizer. It replaces the natural volume (fat) loss that occurs as we age – the volume loss that is responsible for the appearance of age.
Sculptra is not a wrinkle filler, but a bio-activator or “volumizer”. It works by stimulating the body to produce new collagen at the sites of injection, thereby replacing lost volume and contours to restore a fuller, more youthful appearance.
During your appointment, our expert clinicians will go over your goals and expectations and propose a treatment plan to achieve your desired effect. Your clinician will then lay out your treatment plan. Your procedure will then begin.
Your clinician will administer the product with local anaesthesia and the discomfort is minimal. Each treatment consists of a few injections to the areas to be volumised such as the temple, cheeks, chin and jawline.
Results appear gradually over the treatment regimen (typically three injections over the course of three to four months) and can last up to two years.
The results will vary by person and will depend on many factors such as the severity of the conditions, general health and lifestyles of the individual client.
Generally yes. However, your clinician will discuss your options and eligibility during the consultation session. This treatment is not suitable for pregnant or breastfeeding women.
As with all other injections, there can be temporary swelling and bruising. Otherwise, there is no ‘downtime’. Other side effects may include the transient appearance of swelling under the skin which will resolve spontaneously over a period of few weeks.
