At Whitethorn Fields Mediclinic we like to offer our clients the very best in facial aesthetics treatments and it doesn’t get much better than this … what if we told you that you could have a treatment that gives you natural results, gradually, over a period of time without anyone knowing that you have had an aesthetic treatment? That’s got your attention hasn’t it?
You know the saying ‘if it sounds too good to be true then it probably is’ – this is the exception! The treatment that we are talking about is called Sculptra. Sculptra is a tissue regenerating treatment which stimulates the production of collagen and restores volume loss naturally and gradually over time (around 10 months) and lasts more than 2 years (yes, really!).
Now for the science bit … the active ingredient in Sculptra is a substance called poly-l-lactic acid which naturally stimulates your skin to produce its own collagen. Sculptra works differently to traditional dermal fillers which only temporarily disguise lines and folds – Sculptra replenishes lost volume by stimulating growth of your own natural collagen to treat the underlying cause of ageing. It has a proven safety record (it has been used in the NHS for approx 30 years) and has FDA approval so you can be sure that your treatment will be safe and effective.
Collagen formation is a gradual process so the treatment is performed over 2-4 sessions at 6 weekly intervals (our Aesthetic Nurse will be able to advise how many sessions you will require). A few weeks after your first Sculptra treatment you will begin to notice a subtle improvement in the quality of your skin but it is after the second and third sessions that you will notice a gradual but visible improvement in the contours of your face. Lines and wrinkles will be diminished; your skin will be firmer, sagging jowls less pronounced and your skin will look and feel healthier.
The unique nature of Sculptra means it carries on working long after your last session – in fact optimum results are generally seen around 10 months after the first treatment. Over time, you will notice changes to your face that are completely natural looking and can last for more than 2 years at which point all you will need is a top-up to stimulate the collagen production once more.
Sculptra redresses the balance and helps you to achieve the natural look you want to reflect the way you feel! If you would like to book a complimentary consultation with our Aesthetic Nurse to discuss Sculptra (or any of our other anti-ageing treatments) please call the clinic on 01296 614441. We look forward to seeing you and helping you to achieve your goals.
