Sculptra® – Liquid Facelift

As a result of the natural ageing process, skin can lose its full, firm, youthful appearance. It becomes, thinner and loses its natural elasticity and volume, and as a result, it appears loose and starts to wrinkle.

Here at the Cooden Medical Group we use Sculptra® as an effective non-invasive solution for replacing lost volume and rejuvenating your skin tone without resorting to surgery.

Sculptra® is an injectable treatment that uses Poly-L-latic acid; a long lasting, biocompatible material that contains micro-particles that act as seeds to grow the production of collagen, creating an overall lifting and volumising effect.

We use Sculptra® to help to correct following problems areas:

  • Deep folds between the nose and the mouth (nasolabial folds)
  • Folds around the corners of the mouth (marionette lines)
  • Sunken cheeks
  • Wrinkles and lines
  • Deep scars

I am a big fan of Sculptra®. The results are not only very natural looking but also long lasting, providing a fuller, smoother, more youthful face, whilst diminishing those pronounced lines and folds that only surgery could resolve.

  • Is there any downtime?

    A minimal amount, which is dictated by the amount of product we have used and the areas treated. Some people experience a small amount of bruising, however with make-up you can return to work in around 2-3 days.

    Is Sculptra® the right treatment for me?

    We will of course discuss this in your initial consultation, however as a rule, Sculptra should not be used if you are under 18, pregnant, lactating or breastfeeding. Also in people that are allergic to any ingredient of the product or have a history of keloid formation or hypertrophic scarring.

    Are there any side effects?

    The most common side effects after initial treatment include injection site swelling, tenderness, redness, pain, bruising, bleeding, itching and lumps under the skin that are sometimes noticeable when pressing on the treated area.

    When will I see results?

    After treatment you will notice an immediate improvement which will disappear within 24 hours, however over the coming weeks there will be a gradual improvement as the body lays down new collagen and fills out your skin.

    How long do the effects last?

    For best results we recommend a course of 3 treatments which can see results lasting for up to two years, much longer than many other injectable aesthetic treatments, however this depends on your skin care regime and also lifestyle habits.
