Understanding Sculptra

What is Sculptra?

It's an injectable cosmetic procedure specifically designed to combat the signs of aging.


It stimulates collagen production deep under the skin, restoring facial volume naturally, unlike other fillers.

How does Sculptra work?

Utilising its main ingredient, Poly-l-lactic acid (PLLA), it kickstarts your body's collagen production.


This new collagen lifts and smooths the skin, gradually reducing lines and wrinkles for a youthful appearance.

It consists of Poly-l-lactic acid (PLLA), which is both synthetic and safe for the body. Doctors have safely used it in dissolvable stitches for many years.

Who is a good candidate for this treatment?

This is ideal for those looking for long-term, natural-looking results. And for those looking to combat signs of aging like facial volume loss, lines, and wrinkles.

Sculptra is used on most parts of the face (except on the forehead and above the lips). Common areas of use include cheeks, temples, chin, and marionette lines.

Sculptra: Pros and Cons

When considering any cosmetic procedure, weighing the pros and cons can provide a balanced view. Here's a quick look at the advantages and drawbacks of opting for Sculptra treatment:


Natural-Looking Results: Sculptra stimulates your body's own collagen production, resulting in a natural enhancement rather than a "filled" look.

Long-Lasting: Sculptra stands out for results that can last up to two years, outdoing most other fillers in longevity.

Less Invasive: As an injectable, Sculptra gives you a less risky and quicker option than surgical treatments like facelifts.

Gradual Transformation: The results appear over a period, which makes the change look more natural and less abrupt.

Minimal Downtime: Most people can return to their regular activities immediately after the procedure.


Initial Investment: Sculptra can be more expensive upfront than other fillers, though its longer-lasting effects may offset this over time.

Temporary Side Effects: Some patients experience swelling, bruising, or redness after the procedure, although these typically resolve within a few days.

Not Immediate: Because Sculptra works by stimulating collagen growth, results take time to appear but can last up to 2 years.

Maintenance Required: While the effects are long-lasting, they are not permanent. Like any other treatment, you'll need to schedule follow-up appointments.
