Anti-ageing Dermal Fillers: Sculptra for youthful looking face and eyes
Sculptra (poly L lactic acid) treatment provides a youthful looking face and eyes. It’s most suitable for patients who are aged 45 or 50 and above because it gives a natural looking rejuvenated appearance. Sculptra lasts up to 24 months.
The advantage of Sculptra over hyaluronic acid gel is that it is slow growing bio-stimulation of your collagen. We introduce the tiny particles of poly-L-lactic acid into the areas that need treating using a cannula. The particles are suspended in saline water and local anaesthetic. The diffusion through the tissue is smooth. There is not the “bubble-like” effect that sometimes can be observed with the hyaluronic acid gels such as Restylane and Juvederm.
The bio-stimulation takes about eight weeks to start to grow. It will reach a maximum by six months through stimulating your collagen. Then it takes another year or so to be resorbed and needs a top up.
Sculptra is a good base from which to start. It’s ideal for busy businesswomen and businessmen who like to have a natural appearance that lasts all year round. They can also do other small procedures such as Botox, Restylane or Juvederm in the tear troughs and the lips
