Sculptra

Smooth out lines and wrinkles

Facial ageing is due to a combination of changes to the skin and facial bones.

As skin ages the dermis thins due to collagen loss thus reducing its ability to retain elasticity and moisture. In addition facial fat moves downwards and resettles, changing facial contours. While these changes are occurring in the dermis and subcutaneous layers of your skin, the epidermis (surface layer of the skin) changes colour and texture.

The loss of facial volume can make your face look thin and narrow with sunken cheeks, sometimes making you look older than you actually are.

SCULPTRA is a simple injectable volumising treatment that works by stimulating the build up of the body’s natural collagen to help smooth out lines and wrinkles. It also helps to restore lost facial volume to give you a fuller younger-looking face. The enhancement is long-lasting (2-3 years) and looks completely natural.

FAQ’s

What is Sculptra?

Sculptra is an injectable treatment that acts as a collagen stimulant. It contains poly-L-lactic acid that aids in stimulating your skin’s natural collagen production. This ensures your results continue to develop over time, providing natural-looking facial rejuvenation that continues to improve your skin for 6 months after your last treatment session.

How does the Sculptra work?

The liquid facelift involves injecting Sculptra at strategic points in the face. These points will vary depending on your unique facial anatomy and your needs, but popular areas include the cheeks and the temples. With this kind of overall facial rejuvenation, a consultation is essential to assessing your needs and desired results before Dr Eithne begin treatment.

How long will my results last?

Because this treatment needs a few sessions at monthly intervals, you could expect to see your results 2-3 months after your first treatment. These results will then continue to develop over the next 6 months. Every client is different your results may vary, but you could typically expect to see your results for around 2-3 years after treatment!

Are there any side effects?

There are only minor side effects to this treatment, which are completely natural and nothing to worry about. These might include minor swelling, redness, and bruising at the injection sites. These should subside within 2-3 days of treatment and can be managed with a cold compress for the swelling. You can also minimise the risk of bruising by refraining from alcohol for 2 days either side of your treatment.
