With over half a million procedures undertaken, you're in safe hands
Sculptra (a.k.a the 'collagen injection') is a volumising injectable, used for its incredible anti-ageing abilities. Administered deep into the tissue of the face and neck, Sculptra works to boost the appearance of everything from sunken eye sockets and veiny necks to tired-looking cheeks and temple depressions. Although similar to Dermal Filler in that it helps to plump and lift; as well as smooth lines and wrinkles; Sculptra works with your body to ensure you are left with only the most natural of results - because the results are natural.
That's right, instead of introducing anything artificial to the body, Sculptra plumps the skin by calling upon the body's own collagen reserve, for a subtle and gradual influx of those all-important youth proteins. Natural filler if you will.
The remarkable difference a Harley Street Skin Clinic treatment can provide
Sculptra is unlike superficial filler in that it is injected under the skin, rather than into it. This means that product bypasses the vascular layer entirely, embedding itself exactly where the naturally-occurring fatty tissue would sit. This also makes it an incredible method of facial structuring, helping enhance cheekbones as well as correcting asymmetry and areas of depression…
Whether we like it or not, the diminishing process of our natural, youthfully plump tissue can start as early as our twenties. Many factors, both internal and external, can contribute to the loss of facial volume; this could be a case of genetics, ageing, weight loss, illness, sun exposure, smoking, or even prolonged exposure to stress.
Sculptra - a solution specially formulated to correct facial disfigurement, scarring and contour defects - is the longest-lasting and most natural-looking filler available, bar permanent implants. Not only that, but Sculptra is also entirely biocompatible, meaning that it cannot and will not cause any harm whatsoever to the body.
In addition to this, Sculptra is unique in that it enables gradual results, working to subtly reverse the effects of ageing as opposed to just unnaturally correcting them. Sculptra is perfectly supple, moving with the natural contours of the face to prevent the telltale stiffness and bunching that can come with types of dermal filling.

The answer to some of the most common questions you may have
It's only natural to have questions if you are considering pursuing a treatment for the first time, and at Harley Street Skin, it's important to us that you feel confident and comfortable at every stage of your journey. To help you find the answers you need, here are a few of the more common quibbles that we find our clients frequently ask...
Collagen is a protein in the skin which makes up the matrix of skin supports, helping to maintain the skin's youthful shape and plumpness. It works in tandem with Elastin and Hyaluronic acid to cushion the skin, keeping it firm, supple and hydrated.
When injected, Sculptra prompts the body to produce more collagen, 'filling' the space that has been left by dwindling collagen fibres with newly produced collagen.
Sculptra is injected in a pattern formation, then massaged, to evenly refill the areas which appear most gaunt or concave. It will then continue to produce new collagen for up to 6 weeks of treatment, filling out the problem area(s) for up to two whole years.
Sculptra is a fantastically effective method of:
Sculptra is also a fantastic alternative to filler (and dermal implants) as it is designed to accommodate the natural changes and movements of the face. This means that it will adapt with the contours of your face, settling into the most natural position - even as you age. Forget the frozen, unnaturally young look; Sculptra is designed to enhance you in the most organic fashion.
Sculptra boasts the longest-lasting results of any injectable - surpassing both Botox and traditional means of Dermal Filler - with most patients reaping the benefits for up to two years.*
*Yearly maintenance treatment is advised for best results.
Sculptra should take no longer than 30 minutes to carry out, allowing an additional 30-60 minutes for the application of an anaesthetic cream.
Gradual improvements of Sculptra will become apparent over the course of the following 6 weeks, typically taking between 8 and 12 weeks for visible improvement.
Slight swelling or puffiness, as well as minor bruising and tenderness around injection sites, are common following Sculptra. These are, however, all short-lived and should subside within 3-5 days of treatment.
Essentially, Sculptra is an injectable - similar to Botox - so with regards to 'recovery', Sculptra calls for next to nothing. Often, there is some lingering swelling and sensitivity, therefore a cold compress can be applied for the first 24-48 hours to ease any inflammation or discomfort.
You are, however, advised to massage the injection sites over the course of the 6 weeks that Sculptra begins to take effect. This prevents the product from gathering into pockets which could compromise the finish. Gentle, routine massage will help to give patients the absolute optimum results.
Sculptra does not require any downtime, and therefore you should be able to return to work immediately after treatment. Having said this, some patients do opt to let any swelling subside for 24 hours before returning to work, although this is purely down to personal choice and there is no medical requirement to do so.
