Reversing Aging with Sculptra, The Liquid Facelift
Published on: March 23, 2016
Cosmetic Injectables are a great way of getting predictable, natural-looking results without any invasive procedures and with minimal recovery time. At the London Cosmetic Clinic we offer the Sculptra liquid facelift which helps restore the contours of the face, boost its volume and plump out lines and wrinkles.
The volumising liquid in Sculptra is poly-l-lactic acid, a biocompatible and biodegradable liquid that has been used successfully in surgical operations for over 25 years. Whilst most fillers work by plumping the skin themselves, i.e. by being the filling themselves, Sculptra is different in that it encourages the skin to produce its own collagen. This means that the result is more true to the patient’s appearance and looks completely natural and proportioned. It can be used in wrinkles and lines around the face such as nasolabial folds and sunken cheeks as well as being used on deep scars.
Prior to your treatment we apply a numbing agent and the liquid is massaged after being injected. You may need two or three sessions, depending on the severity of your lines and it takes around six weeks for the effects to become noticeable. After your treatment you do not have to take any time off from your usual schedule and, as it is non-invasive, there are no stitches and no risk of infection.
