Smoking has a damaging effect on the skin and the lips are often the area most affected, because of the repetitive action of drawing the smoke. The good news is there are treatments available to reduce the appearance of smoker’s lines.
As a specialist skincare clinic, we help patients to reverse the effects of ageing, sun damage and problem skin conditions by addressing lines and wrinkles, volume loss and scarring,
Fillers are an effective treatment to address many of these issues, and Sculptra can be particularly effective for deeper lines.
Our patients can be confident that our Save Face accredited practitioners will help them achieve the aesthetic outcome they are looking for.
What is Sculptra?
Sculptra is a unique poly-l-lactic acid based injectable treatment. It is scientifically designed to replenish natural facial collagen.
How does Sculptra work?
It can help to restore lost facial volume to give a fuller, firmer and more youthful appearance.
Sculptra can recontour facial profile and eliminate lines and wrinkles. Where areas of the face have become hollow such as the cheeks or tear trough, it has a plumping effect.
Importantly, the unique ‘lifting’ quality provides patients with a feasible and less invasive alternative to surgery, which can be both costly and requires considerable down time.
What can Sculptra be used to treat?
Sculptra can be used to correct shallow-to-deep facial wrinkles and folds. It contains micro-particles that work to lift and smooth skin that has lost volume and firmness.
The results are long-lasting and give a natural appearance.
Sculptra® can be used in the mid-face region to treat a range of issues including:
- Nasolabial folds
- Marionette lines
- Sunken cheeks and temples
- Wrinkles and lines in the cheeks or chin
- Deep scars
Results appear gradually over around six weeks and give a subtle, natural improvement.
By helping to replenish your own natural collagen, Sculptra gives a fuller, more youthful facial contour, which can last for up to three years.
Can Sculptra be used with other treatments?
Sculptra is perfectly suitable to be administered alongside Botox, although they cannot be injected into the same area of the face.
