In time your skin loses its full, firm youthful appearance – a result of the natural ageing process. Your skin becomes thinner and can sag, causing wrinkles and deep lines to appear. Fat tissue which maintains the fullness of your face is also lost, causing your face to look thin and narrow and making you look older than you are. Sculptra can help by smoothing deep lines and wrinkles and also by returning lost volume to give you a natural looking fuller face.
What is Sculptra?
Sculptra is an injectable treatment that works by stimulating the build up of the body’s own collagen to get rid of lines and wrinkles.
Sculptra’s volumising effect also restores lost facial volume, resulting in a fuller younger-looking face. The overall effect is a youthful appearance with gradual, natural looking results.
Clinical studies have shown that the results of Sculptra can last for more than 3 years, significantly longer than other treatments
It is well tolerated with over 17,000 treatments in the UK since 2005. The main ingredient of Sculptra has been used in medicine for over 10 years and is biocompatible, biodegradable and well tolerated.
No allergy testing is required before treatment
