Sculptra is a non-surgical facial rejuvenation treatment designed to promote the growth of the body’s naturally occurring collagen. Though it is administered by means of a very fine needle it is neither a dermal filler nor a neurotoxin, meaning is doesn’t paralyse muscles nor plump areas of the face using a filler substance. It is what our surgeons refer to as a ‘bio-stimulator’.
Sculptra is a safe non-surgical technique which is appropriate for both men and women. It can be used as a line or wrinkle filler, in which case it is injected under local anaesthetic just underneath the surface of the skin, or can be used as a volumising agent, to put back volume in areas of the face which have sunken through age.
This natural compound is particularly good at treating hollow cheeks or hollow temples, at softening bony cheekbones or a hollow chin area, at defining the jaw line or smoothing out deep facial wrinkles.

Depends on what you are hoping to achieve. People looking to replace lost facial volume may be interested to find out about dermal fillers or botox. Patients interested in permanently altering the appearance of their facial features might consider facial surgery such as rhinoplasty, ear pinning or chin implants.
Patients can expect the results of Sculptra treatment to last up to 2 years! This is a very long time comparative to other non-surgical treatments however if you want permanent results there is no other alternative then having surgery.
Results may take a few weeks to show. However many patients notice a significant difference immediately post treatment.
It totally depends on the look you are hoping to achieve. Although Sculptra can be substituted by a number of other non-invasive procedures non will give quite the same result.
The best way to find out if Sculptra is good for you is to have a frank and open discussion about your expectations with your chosen surgeon who will be able to advise you on the best course of action.
No, our patients are pleasantly surprised as to how pain free and quick the procedure is. The most painful part of the process is the initial injection which tends to fade in a manner of seconds.
