  • Totally Bio-compatible
  • Gradual Collagen Stimulation for natural rejuvenation
  • Results lasts up to 2 years

Sculptra has been in use for many decades as a powerful collagen stimulator. A treatment course gives immediate results with little to no downtime. You will see the natural effects after a few weeks as you body gradually makes collagen which improves shadows, skin laxity and wrinkles in a totally natural way.

Each of the three treatments are 4-6 weeks apart so that you can gauge how your body’s collagen is developing. Visible results can be seen after about 6 weeks and the treatment is titrated and tweaked until optimum results are reached. The results are your new collagen, smaller pores, brighter skin and a real reduction in fine lines and wrinkles. Cheeks are re-plumped and youthful looks restored.

Where fillers give immediate results which are more contouring and angular and definitely has a place for some lines, where Sculptra provides a natural “not done” look which lasts for years.

How better to improve your skin and face but with your OWN collagen? Ellansé treatment is the only way to really regain lost volume which gives the most natural and extremely long lasting results.

Avoid looking as if you’ve had something “done”.

Alison will examine your face and neck closely to look at how your ageing is affecting you – we all age differently and every face and skin is unique.

There is no real downtime except possible bruising and occasional slight swelling the day after (see below for detailed after effects).

The, it’s a case of waiting for your body to make enough collagen to become visible. You will notice a gradual improvement in skin texture and firmness followed by the most wonderful radiance in your skin. Hollows and soft areas of skin will firm and fill and the skin will become plump and hydrated again, slowly lifting back where it became soft and thinned.

The best factor is that no-one will realise you’ve had anything done and you’ll be receiving comments of “Wow, you look well / good!” and no-one will be able to put their finger on how you’ve managed to look so healthy and vibrant again.

Collagen replacement:

Replace what’s lost and you will see the most beautiful results in your skin and face. Collagen fillers are the treatment of choice for natural long lasting rejuvenation.

Collagen is the Answer

Collagen is one of the important support structures found naturally in our skin, helping to maintain the appropriate tightness, elasticity and suppleness.

The treatment is similar to a dermal filler treatment but the effects continue to improve the skin quality and subtle volume for the months and years afterwards. This is the secret of the stars who deny fillers and just say they have natural collagen boost.

INSTANT FACTS on the BENEFITS:

Sculptra is a collagen stimulating filler, that is naturally reabsorbed by the body.

TREATMENT with Sculptra®

Sculptra is a series of two or three treatments, 4-6 weeks apart. You will see results after a few weeks with final results at 6-9 months lasting for another year or so.

HOW LONG DOES A TREATMENT TAKE?

A typical Sculptra treatment will take approximately 30 minutes or more, depending on the treatment areas, the amount of product being used, and the technique of the physician administering the treatments.

ARE THE EFFECTS IMMEDIATE?

With Sculptra, you will see both immediate and long-term effects. Immediate effects include; increased volume in the treated areas, correction of folds and wrinkles, and facial contouring. These will only last a day or so as the water is absorbed.

Long-term effects come from the collagen stimulation. Sculptra stimulates collagen production in the skin, which provides long-term benefits, helping the skin regain what has naturally been lost with age.

WHERE DO I USE SCULPTRA®?

Sculptra is used for sub-dermal correction of wrinkles and other facial ageing signs. Sculptra is designed for use in the more superficial layers of the skin, to give the optimal effect.

HOW DOES SCULPTRA® FILLERS WORK?

Long-term effects come from the collagen stimulation. Sculptra stimulates collagen production in the skin, which provides long-term benefits, helping the skin regain what has naturally been lost with age. Therefore, once the actual Sculptra has naturally been reabsorbed by the body over time, you may continue to see beneficial, long-lasting effects from the treatment.*
