Face

Sculptra is the only treatment used for medical volume restoration. As a bio-stimulating volume rejuvenator, Sculptra works to smooth out the fine lines, wrinkles and sagging on your face by stimulating collagen production. With age, the fat pads in our face lose volume. This results in skin sagging, fine lines, jowling and other signs of ageing. Sculptra is a poly-L-lactic acid substance which stimulates fibroblast production. These fibroblasts then generate high volumes of collagen within the targeted fat pads.

On the day of treatment

Precare

  • We will go through your consent form, which will have been emailed before the session to you, and you will then be asked to sign a physical copy.
  • The doctor will then cleanse your skin so that he can assess it.
  • During his assessment, he will look at skin thickness and quality along with the underlying muscles to determine the injection points needed.
  • A tiny needle will be used to minimise any bleeding or discomfort. The target area will be treated quickly.

Our Process

Sculptra acts as a biostimulator, operating within the deeper layers of your skin to enhance the generation of elastin and collagen in your cells. This process rejuvenates your body’s innate collagen production, reducing the visibility of fine lines, wrinkles, and folds, resulting in a more youthful and fuller appearance.

Focusing on the face, our consultation before treatment lasts 15-20 minutes while we assess your face and areas that need treatment. Once the consultation is complete, lidocaine will be used to numb the target area. The product will then be injected using a cannula for maximum safety and comfort. The treatment should take no more than 30 minutes to complete, and you should see results within the first month. 1-3 treatments are generally required and results last up to 2 years.

Post-care

  • It is important to massage the treatment area after treatment to ensure the product is dispersed as evenly and thoroughly as possible. Follow the rule of 5’s for optimal results (massage: 5 times a day x 5 minutes x 5 days). Start this process 3 hours after your treatment, or the following morning for late evening treatments.
  • You may encounter swelling and bruising the day after your procedure, which is normal and typically resolves within 2-3 days. To minimise this, abstain from consuming alcohol 24 hours before and after your treatment.
  • Refrain from applying heavy makeup or unnecessarily touching the treated area for 6 hours to reduce the risk of infection. Additionally, steer clear of Vitamin C, Retinol, AHA, and BHA skincare products for 24 hours post-treatment to allow it to settle.
  • Avoid rubbing or massaging the treated area for 24 hours to minimise the possibility of the treatment shifting. Maintain an upright position for 4 hours to prevent unintentional migration of the treatment or an increased risk of swelling.
  • Refrain from engaging in strenuous exercise like weight training or cross-fit for 24 hours, as it may occasionally cause the treatment to move to unintended areas. Stay away from saunas, jacuzzis, or hot baths for 24 hours post-procedure, as the heat can lead to treatment migration.
  • Limit alcohol consumption to reduce the risk of bruising, and avoid sleeping on the treated area the night following your treatment.
