As we age the collagen in our skin gradually wears away which can lead to a loss of volume causing the skin to crease, wrinkle or sag. Other environmental factors play their part as well such as UV damage from the sun, poor diet and dehydration, alcohol, smoking and sunbeds.

Sculptra® is a long lasting injectable volumising treatment that can smooth deep lines and wrinkles. With Sculptra® you can restore facial volume that is lost due the body's natural ageing process. Sculptra® does this by stimulating the build up of the body's own collagen.

This gives you a fuller, younger looking face and looks completely natural. The enhancement is long lasting, approximately two years it is known as the "liquid face lift" but without the downtime of a surgical face-lift.

Sculptra® is most suitable for those that are in good health, aged 35 and over. From this age onwards the volume in the face begins to drop and the nose to mouth lines are much more prominent. Sculptra® will gently lift the face and add the lost volume. Sculptra® is also a benefit for the skin generally because it increases the skins collagen levels which will give a much healthier look.

Suitable areas of the face that are suitable for Sculptra® treatment are:

The Consultation
During your consultation you will discuss your areas of concern. Dr Hamlet will discuss with you the form of treatment or combination of treatments which would be most suitable for you.

Sculptra®, how does it work?
Sculptra® is a clinically-proven treatment to help restore lost facial volume. It is a material known as poly-L-lactic acid. This is injected into the skin as required which then stimulates the body's natural collagen, which lifts and smoothes the skin reducing facial lines and wrinkles.

The Treatment
During your consultation you will have discussed how many treatments/vials you will require in order to obtain your desired result. Everybody is individual but on average a course of three treatments is recommended using approximately 5 vials. Your treatments will take place over a twelve week period, two to three treatments lasting an hour in total.

This treatment is a gradual process resulting in a natural result.

When Will I See The Results?
Results will appear naturally and over the treatment course, you should start to see the results after six weeks. This is because it gradually stimulates the production of your own collagen.

How Long Will It Last?
The treatment will differ for each person, however, in many cases the results of the treatment have lasted up to two years.

Does The Treatment Hurt?
Sculptra® is injected into the dermis of the skin in the area that has lost fat and volume. The needle used is an ultra-fine needle injecting tiny amounts of the product. This may cause you slight discomfort but every effort will be made to ensure that you are comfortable during your treatment. A topical anaesthetic cream will be applied numbing the area being treated and the product is also mixed with a local anaesthetic to help make the treatment more comfortable for you.

Is the Treatment Safe?
Sculptra® has been used cosmetically since 1990 in 30 countries. The product is biocompatible and biodegradable. Sculptra® is made from a material called poly-L-lactic acid which has been used for over 25 years in dissolvable soft tissue implants.

Do I Need A Skin Test?
No, allergy testing is not required before your treatment.

To ensure that your treatment is performed correctly you must always ensure it is completed by a qualified practitioner trained to use the correct Sculptra® procedures. Dr Hamlet was trained in April 2008 by one of the top Sculptra® trainers in the country.

The cost of Sculptra® will be discussed during your consultation, this will help you and Dr Hamlet determine which areas you would like treated and if Sculptra® is suitable for you.
