Sculptra – The Liquid FaceLift That Is Natural Looking & Long Lasting*
Facial volume can be traditionally replaced with fillers. The latest trend, however, is to achieve global facial volume replacement with Sculptra, through natural collagen stimulation with l-poly-lactic acid. Sculptra, known as ‘the liquid facelift’, would substantially increase the collagen of your skin to correct the folds, wrinkles and skin laxity as a consequence of aging. The result looks and feels natural. Sculptra is FDA approved for treating nasolabial folds and facial wrinkles, its smoothing effect can potentially last for up to 25 months depending upon the initial severity of the facial wrinkle and fold contour deficiency.*

How It Works
As you aged, there is global volume loss of internal facial tissues. There is loss of bone density as your skull becomes smaller, loss of collagen and muscle tissues, as well as fat resorption.
As a result of the aging processes, your skin sags and becomes droopy. Folds at the cheeks, tear trough, laugh lines and corners of the mouth become more prominent. There is development and deepening of wrinkles. There is also development of pigmentation of the skin associated with aging.
Sculptra helps to replace and reinforce the skin’s collagen structure within the deep dermis. This reinforced collagen structure provides a foundation that gradually restores the fullness of your facial contour which in term smooths out shallow to deep facial wrinkles and folds that has been depleted over time. The result? A refined, more youthful looking appearance over time that are potentially long lasting.
Sculptra is used to correct shallow to deep facial wrinkles and folds which are treated with the appropriate injection technique.
Sculptra is suitable for:
– Deep folds between the nose and the mouth (nasolabial folds) also called smile lines
– The lines framing your mouth (marionette lines)
– Sunken & droopy cheeks
– Sunken temples
– Eye bags & dark eye circles caused by sunken tear troughs
– Skin laxity
Sculptra is administered in a series of treatment sessions by a Sculptra trained physician. On average, 4 treatment sessions are needed over a few months, but our doctor will tailor the sessions to best suit your skin and your desired outcome. It is important to return for all treatment sessions as instructed by our doctor in order to get the maximum effect from the gradual process of collagen replacement offered by Sculptra.
Sculptra is injected into the skin. The number of injections per treatment session will vary depending on the degree of correction you and our doctor’s decision of what is right for you. A topical anesthetic will be applied and you may experience injection site discomfort in the treatment process, however this varies from person to person. You should not receive treatment if you have an active infection or skin inflammation near the planned injection site.
Immediately after each treatment session you may experience swelling, which can give you a preview of how you may look once your shallow to deep facial wrinkles and folds have been smoothed. The swelling on average subsides within a few days and the wrinkles will temporarily reappear as the gradual process of collagen replacement continues. You may begin to see progressive visible results within the first few weeks after each treatment session. Remember, in order to get the most out of Sculptra, you should complete the full course of treatment sessions as recommended by our doctor.
Following an average of three treatment sessions over a few months, or as our doctor recommends, can produce a more natural, younger looking appearance that is potentially long lasting. During the course of treatment, our doctor may adjust your treatment plan to help you reveal a natural-looking appearance that’s uniquely yours.
