Sculptra at Skin Medical

Sculptra is designed to naturally restore facial volume and improve skin texture by stimulating the production of the skin’s own collagen.

At Skin Medical, under the expert guidance of Dr Sabika Karim, we offer Sculptra, which enhances the production of your own natural collagen to prevent ageing. 

What is Sculptra?

Sculptra is an advanced dermal filler that has been developed to provide natural-looking results by enhancing production of the skin’s own natural collagen. This product is designed to address facial volume loss and signs of ageing and provide long-lasting rejuvenation.

The treatment is designed for individuals seeking a subtle and gradual improvement in their appearance. Unlike traditional fillers that offer instant results, Sculptra works progressively, with visible improvements appearing over several weeks. This approach is much more likely to produce natural-looking outcomes.

Sculptra Technology

Sculptra’s core technology is based on poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), a biodegradable synthetic substance that has been used in medical applications for decades, including in dissolvable stitches and soft tissue implants. PLLA works by gradually stimulating collagen production, which is essential for maintaining the skin’s elasticity and structure.

As we age, our skin loses collagen as its capacity to produce it naturally decreases. This leads to the more pronounced formation of wrinkles and sagging skin. Traditional fillers, injecting substances like Hyaluronic Acid, often provide immediate but short-term results by adding volume to plump up an area. In contrast, Sculptra’s unique mechanism of action gradually restores facial volume and improves skin texture over time, ensuring more natural results.

Sculptra Product Information

Sculptra is found as a fine powder, which is then reconstituted with sterile water by the healthcare provider before injection. This process allows the PLLA microparticles to be evenly distributed, which means a more consistent collagen stimulation throughout the treated area. The treatment is typically administered through a series of injections into the deep dermis or subcutaneous layer of the skin.
