Facial treatments


Sculptra is an injectable cosmetic filler that can be used to restore facial volume lost due to aging. It's an effective treatment that address issues of facial volume loss and asymmetry, scaring, sunken cheeks and deep nasolabial folds. Sculptra is a popular treatment that can give a subtle result over time and won't make you look like you had work done.

How does Sculptra work?

Sculptra is made with biocompatible, biodegradable, material called poly-L-lactic acid, which is gradually and naturally absorbed by the body and helps to rebuild lost collagen through a series of treatments. 

Injections are done within the deep dermis, where strands of collagen support the skin's structure. Over time, Sculptra helps the body reproduce lost collagen.  The number of injection appointments and the number of injections per appointment vary from person to person, depending on how much collagen has been lost. On average, three injection appointments are needed to achieve optimal results with a minimum of three- week intervals between sessions. 

What's the benefits of Sculptra?

Sculptra treatments diminish wrinkles, lines, and furrows that can form around the lips, eyes, mouth, neck, cheeks, and lips. Using Sculptra can give you a more revitalised appearance with results that can last up to two years or longer. It helps increase collagen production within your body, but it also helps increase the volume around the face, cheeks, and jaw areas. This means that not only will your skin look younger and healthier, but you'll also be able to enjoy a fuller and more natural volumized look.

Preparing for Sculptra

Before the procedure, consider talking with the aesthetician about ways to prepare for your appointment. You may need to stop taking certain medications, such as ibuprofen and those for acne treatment (like Accutane), well in advance of the procedure.

It’s also recommended that you avoid using agents that may increase the sensitivity of your skin.  It is recommend that you stop using topical retinoids and exfoliants before your Sculptra appointment.

How to look after the skin following a Sculptra procedure (after care).

Just like with any cosmetic skin treatment, such as Botox or Dermal Filler, it’s important to look after your skin following a Sculptra procedure. Some things you want to keep in mind, include:

  •  Redness and swelling may be seen after treatment, lasting for a week or longer, depending on each person skin sensitivity. Recovery is minimal, though people with sensitive skin should be careful when applying moisturisers and make-up. After the treatment, the skin can be inflamed and more sensitive than usual.

  • Within the first 24 hours an ice pack (avoiding any direct contact of the ice with the skin) should be applied to the treated area to reduce swelling and bruising. Hematoma may also occur, typically resolving in hours to about two weeks. 

  • Expose of the treated area to sun and UV lamp are to be avoided until any initial swelling and redness has resolved. Sun protection for several weeks after the treatment is recommended. 

  • Make-up may be applied a few hours post treatment if no complications are present

  • Apply circular massage to the treated area for 5-10 minutes, 3-5 times per day for 2 weeks after the injection session to promote a natural look. 

How long does Sculptra treatment effects last?


In clinical study results lasted for up to 25 months after the last treatment session. However, the improvement depended on the severity of the collagen lost and wrinkles and nasolabial folds score (WAS score 1-5).

Who should not be treated with Sculptra?

People have a history of keloid formation or hypertrophic scarring. Clients who are pregnant, lactating, breastfeeding, or under 18 years of age.
