Sculptra® is a Collagen Stimulant Filler which not only fills but eventually will also stimulate the body to produce its own collagen in the injected areas. Sculptra is designed to smooth out and soften lines and wrinkles, restore volume and contour the face in a natural way. With its gradual results, it’s considered the more discreet approach to achieving a fresher, younger-looking appearance.


What can Sculptra® treat?

  • Lines, wrinkles and folds
  • Nasolabial folds (lines between the nose and mouth)
  • Drooping corners of the mouth
  • Sunken cheeks
  • Recessed or hollowed temples
  • Jowl laxity
  • Thinning skin
  • Ageing hands
  • Décolletage

How does it work?

As a bio-stimulating, collagen-replenishing treatment, Sculptra® injectables work differently to traditional fillers. They help your body to replenish its own facial collagen, it gradually and naturally gives long-lasting results for up to 3 or 4 years after the treatment.

The main ingredient of Sculptra is poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), which is biocompatible, biodegradable and long-lasting. Scientific studies have shown that 80% of patients still rated their results as “good to excellent” at 25 months following treatment.

Its use in cosmetic treatments was first pioneered in the NHS and is still used to treat lipoatrophy (fat loss) in HIV patients, and patients with congenital facial deformities and scarring following trauma or burns.

Before the treatment

During your initial consultation, your practitioner will assess the degree of volume loss and skin laxity in your face and any lifestyle factors that may effect your response to the treatment.

You will be shown before and after photos of patients he has treated, and he will take photographs of your face to help monitor your progress. It's helpful to bring photographs of yourself taken 10-15 years ago with you to your consultation.

We will aim to restore and enhance your natural appearance rather than change your features.


During & after the treatment

At the start of the treatment session, your practitioner will apply a topical anaesthetic cream to your skin at the site of the injection. When this has taken effect, the PLLA product will then be injected into the areas of your face that need treating.

After the injection, the Dr will show you how to thoroughly massage the treated areas. You will need to massage the area for 10 minutes, twice a day, until your next treatment session. Massaging the treated area makes sure that the Sculptra® is evenly distributed in the deep tissues. It is also essential for helping to stimulate the fibroblasts that produce new collagen in response to the treatment.

Frequently Asked Questions

Sculptra® injectables

Sculptra is a suitable treatment for all men and women when changes associated with ageing start to become apparent.

The Sculptra treatment is not considered painful. As well as the topical anaesthetic cream, the Sculptra product injected into your skin contains the local anaesthetic lidocaine (2%). The procedure is therefore relatively pain-free, and is usually well-tolerated by patients.

There will be some puffiness or swelling in the treated area, but this should disappear within 24 hours. You may also have some bruising, but this is less common and usually resolves within a week, and can easily be covered by makeup in most cases. Most patients return to work or normal activities a day after the treatment.

To achieve the ideal results with Sculptra® we recommend a course of three treatments, 4 to 6 weeks apart. Most patients only need one vial of the product per decade.

Sculptra® is a bio-stimulatory agent, which means it stimulates new collagen formation through a natural but gradual process. The rate at which collagen is produced naturally varies from person to person, but most patients start to see some effects after 3 to 4 weeks.

At the end of the course of treatment most patients will see a significant improvement that continues over the following 3 to 6 months towards full correction. This gradual change, leading to a softer, more refreshed youthful appearance – rather than the sudden change associated with traditional dermal filler treatments or surgery – is what makes Sculptra® so popular.

Once full correction has been achieved, the results are long-lasting. Medical studies have shown that in most patients, results last for over 2 years, and for many patients up to 5 years.

After this time, the full effects are gradually lost through the natural process of ageing. Many patients who wish to preserve the benefits of the treatment return for a review and top-up after 1 or 2 years. Usually just one treatment session is needed to maintain the full correction for another 2 years or more.

In capable hands, with the right training and experience, this is a very safe and effective procedure. Over time, the technique has evolved to optimise the effects and reduce problems – such as temporary lumps or nodules that have been reported with Sculptra® treatments in the past.

Sculptra can be used to give a more youthful appearance to the skin on the backs of hands and the décolletage (upper chest and neck area) by reducing lines and wrinkles – often associated with ageing and excessive sun exposure – as well as restoring loss of volume and thickness in the skin.
