There is minimal discomfort with the cannula delivery of Sculptra as we can use techniques to numb the skin and the product also contains a local anaesthetic.
After an initial consultation to assess the problem area, treatment can take place on the same day if suitable, and this will take approximately 30 minutes to several hours depending on complexity and whether you will also be treating additional areas on the face.
There are three stages to the results, immediate, at one week and by 8 weeks as the Restylane works immediately, the Botulinum toxin takes a week to work and the Sculptra takes up to 8 weeks to see the effect and that effect carries on up to 6 months. Ultherapy is similar in lifting gradually after 8 weeks as biostimulation of the patients own collagen occurs.
The results can last up to 18 months.
