Rediscover Youthful Skin with Sculptra:
Unveiling a natural, plump, and sculpted appearance that lasts for years is no longer a dream but a reality with Sculptra.
Often referred to as the long-lasting alternative to Profhilo, Sculptra bridges the gap between a collagen stimulator and filler. This remarkable treatment harnesses the power of Poly L Lactic Acid to rejuvenate your skin, bestowing a radiant, tightened, and sculpted look that defies time.
Collagen, the most abundant protein in your body, constitutes roughly 75% of your skin. It plays a pivotal role in maintaining skin firmness, tightness, and volume. Traditional fillers aim to mask volume loss using hyaluronic acid-based gels. Sculptra, however, redefines the realm of injectables by addressing the root cause of volume loss: collagen. By stimulating collagen production, Sculptra naturally rebuilds volume, leaving you with a fresh and genuine appearance, free from the artificial or “done” look.
Furthermore, Sculptra induces collagen production, enhancing skin firmness, diminishing wrinkles, and tightening the skin—effectively reversing the visible signs of ageing. The beauty of Sculptra lies in its longevity, with results proven to last up to two years or more on average. In fact, Poly-L-Lactic Acid, the core component of Sculptra, is utilised in the NHS to treat severe volume loss and loose skin quality in metabolic clinics, underlining its efficacy and clinical credibility.
The Science Behind Sculptra:
Sculptra is an injectable collagen biostimulator, composed of poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), a fully absorbed polymer.
This remarkable substance works deep within the skin to enhance its inner structure over a series of treatments.
Among the various types of collagen, types 1 and 3 are most prevalent in the skin. Collagen type 1 serves as the primary structural component of the skin, while collagen type 3 plays a crucial role in healing and repair processes.
The natural ageing process causes an approximate annual loss of 1% of collagen. By the age of 35, we experience a 15% reduction, and by age 55, a 35% decrease in collagen levels. Sculptra’s PLLA microparticles work deep within the skin to stimulate the replacement of lost collagen. The result? Improved skin elasticity, quality, and radiance, even after 12 months of treatment.
With an impressive satisfaction rate of 80% after 2 years of treatment, backed by countless successful patient experiences over three decades, Sculptra is more than a treatment—it’s a clinically proven and trusted solution.
Your Sculptra Experience:
Your journey to rejuvenated skin commences with a thorough consultation at Secret Aesthetics.
During this session, our doctor will attentively listen to your skin concerns, ascertain your objectives, and evaluate your suitability for Sculptra. All available options will be considered to create a personalised treatment plan that aligns with your unique needs.
To enhance your comfort, Sculptra is mixed with a local anaesthetic, ensuring a virtually pain-free procedure. The treatment may involve the use of a small needle or a cannula, and Sculptra will be evenly distributed throughout your face and/or neck. The entire procedure typically lasts no longer than 20 minutes.
Areas Treated with Sculptra:
Other Treatable Areas
– Volume Loss: Sculptra effectively addresses volume loss in areas such as the temples, cheeks, mid-face, nasolabial folds, marionette lines, and more, delivering results that surpass those of traditional dermal fillers.
– Fine Lines and Wrinkles: Sculptra’s collagen-stimulating properties naturally smooth out fine lines and wrinkles, even in areas where anti-wrinkle toxins cannot be used.
– Elasticity and Firmness: By stimulating type 1 collagen production, Sculptra restores skin firmness and elasticity, rejuvenating it to its youthful state.
– Tone and Vibrancy: Often referred to as the long-lasting “Profhilo” for the skin, Sculptra provides results that extend up to 2 years and beyond, surpassing the effects of many other treatments.
– Enlarged Pores: Sculptra treatment can enhance pore size, thanks to increased collagen support within the skin.
– Skin Texture & Pigmentation: Many clients notice improvements in sun-induced pigmentation changes and overall skin texture following Sculptra treatment.
Number of Treatments Needed for Sculptra:
The number of sessions required may vary from person to person. Most individuals will typically need two sessions, spaced one month apart.
As a general guideline, for every decade of life beyond 35, an additional syringe may be required at each session. For instance, individuals in their 40s may benefit from two vials of Sculptra per session. However, if you possess good skin quality relative to your age, a single vial may suffice at each visit. A consultation with one of our doctors is essential to determine your specific needs and create a customised treatment plan.
Potential Side Effects of Sculptra:
On the day of your treatment, you may experience temporary redness, and in rare cases, itching, tenderness, or small lumps may occur.
These side effects can usually be avoided by following the provided aftercare instructions correctly.
Sculptra's transformative effects will become increasingly apparent over the ensuing weeks and months.
As the product revitalises collagen production, it improves the skin’s inner structure, resulting in a more youthful appearance. While results may begin to show at 4 months, the greatest improvements often manifest at 6 months. Patience is key, as the gradual nature of Sculptra treatment ensures subtle yet enduring changes that may last well beyond your clinic visits. To maintain and enhance your skin’s structural improvements, periodic maintenance sessions with your practitioner are recommended.
Sculptra or Ellanse?
The Choice Is Yours
– Ellanse: Ideal for those seeking immediate volume enhancement with results that last up to 2 years, Ellanse is often described as
a long-lasting dermal filler. This option is well-suited for individuals with volume loss in specific areas.
– Sculptra: Designed for individuals with multiple areas of concern, Sculptra offers a more comprehensive approach. With the ability to treat most of the face with a single vial on average, Sculptra provides results that gradually appear over 4-6 months, offering a more natural onset. Like Ellanse, Sculptra’s results can last up to 2 years, making it an excellent choice for those with widespread volume loss.
Your treating doctor will assist you in making the best decision for your unique needs.
Caring for Your Skin After Sculptra:
While applying ice packs within the first 24 hours can help reduce inflammation, it is not mandatory.
Massage your entire face and neck for 5 minutes, five times a day, over a span of 5 days, using a moisturiser cream. This promotes even product distribution and minimises the risk of lumps. Avoid using vitamin A-based creams for 24 hours after treatment and acid-based products for the same duration to allow your skin to settle and breathe. Steer clear of sun exposure, tanning, and extreme temperatures until redness subsides.
This treatment is not recommended for pregnant women.
Individuals with active skin conditions should consult their doctor to determine suitability.
