Understanding Sculptra

Experience the cutting edge, non-surgical technology of the future as the skin ages, it undergoes not only an increase in fine lines, wrinkles, creases and folds, but a noticeable depletion of volume, leaving the complexion dull, hollow and flat.

With the introduction of Sculptra, a groundbreaking injectable for age-reversing facial contouring, clients are enjoying radiant, youthful results without the invasiveness of a surgical facelift.

Benefits of Sculptra:

  • Non-invasive, non-surgical

  • Decreases wrinkles and fine lines
  • Improves facial symmetry
  • No downtime
  • Boosts collagen production
  • Results up to two years
  • Short treatment time of around 30 minutes

What makes Sculptra so effective?

One of the body’s secrets to youthful skin is collagen, a protein responsible for skin suppleness, resilience and radiance. As we mature, this precious protein begins to dwindle, leaving the skin’s contours tired-looking and hollow.

Sculptra’s revolutionary formula, based on poly-L-lactic acid, helps to trigger the re-growth of collagen. This can beautifully plump and restore the underlying scaffolds of the cheeks, jaw, chin and temple regions for a more youthful aesthetic.

Is Sculptra painful?

Thanks to his refined, conservative technique, Dr. Ridha’s patients rarely experience any discomfort during their procedure. He uses a local anesthetic to numb the skin prior to injection, so you will hardly notice the treatment has been completed. In the worst case scenario, you may have some minor facial swelling that will dissipate within hours.

How long will my results last?

Results will vary from patient to patient, however on average, Sculptra results tend towards longevity, with changes still apparent after 2 years. Attending regular follow visits with Dr. Ridha is the best way to maintain your cosmetic results.
