Sculptra® Filler
Sculptra® Filler

While many fillers provide effective results, Sculptra® targets underlying problems rather than just covering them up. Your skin will look healthy and fresh with just a few sessions.

 

Wrinkles, folds and sunken areas can all be remedied with Sculptra® and improved facial volume and stimulated collagen production are welcome results. If your confidence has taken a dive with age, Sculptra® fillers can get you ready to take on the world again.

The most important thing about any cosmetic treatment is that it looks entirely natural. Our goal is that you'll look like the best version of yourself, not a different person. The wrinkles we choose to leave are as important as the ones we reduce.

About

The results of Sculptra®’s bio-active injections speak for themselves. While it works gradually, the treatment’s effects can last for up to 24 months. The key compound in Sculptra® is poly-L-lactic acid, or PLLA, which is both biocompatible and biodegradable. With more than 40 years of medical use, you can feel safe with the knowledge that it is a thoroughly tested and vetted product and procedure.

The main benefits you are likely to see from a Sculptra® filler treatment include:

  • Lost collagen replaced
  • Lost facial volume restored to more youthful fullness
Treatment

Sculptra® treatments are mildly uncomfortable and last for around 60 minutes per area treated. Most people will need 2 to 3 treatments spaced 4–6 weeks apart in order to see the best results.

You can get back to normal activities after the treatment but, with redness, swelling and tenderness all possible short-term side effects, it is wise to apply an ice pack to the treated area for the rest of the day.
