What is Sculptra™?
Sculptra™ is a synthetic injectable material known as poly-L-lactic acid. Poly-L-lactic acid is biocompatible (a material that does not harm the body) and biodegradable (able to be broken down by the body). Poly-L-lactic acid has been widely used for many years in dissolvable stitches, soft tissue implants, and other types of implants.
Who performs treatment with Sculptra™?
Our Plastic Surgeon Mr David Gateley performs the Sculptra™ treatment using the new cannula technique, which is considerably more effective and much more comfortable than regular injections.
Are the results from Sculptra™ immediate?
No. At your first treatment, it may appear that Sculptra™ worked immediately because of the swelling from the injections and the water used to dilute Sculptra™. In a few days, when the swelling goes down and the water is absorbed by your body you may look as you did before the treatment. Sculptra™ takes time to work, results should be noticeable after approximately 6 weeks. One of the Nakedhealth Medical Professionals will see you again in a few weeks to decide if you need more Sculptra™ injection
