Sculptra is an injectable cosmetic treatment that is primarily used for facial rejuvenation at Derma one Clinic Dubai. It contains a synthetic substance called poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), which stimulates collagen production in the skin. Sculptra is used to restore volume and improve the overall appearance of the face, particularly in areas where there has been a loss of fat or sagging due to aging.
Sculptra is a synthetic biodegradable polymer. It is primarily used for aesthetic purposes and is indicated for the treatment of facial volume loss and skin aging.
- Facial Volume Loss: Sculptra is commonly used to treat age-related facial volume loss, which can result in a hollow or sunken appearance. It helps restore facial volume and improve the overall contour of the face.
- Wrinkles and Fine Lines: Sculptra can also be used to minimize the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, particularly in areas such as the nasolabial folds (smile lines), marionette lines, and chin wrinkles.
- Skin Laxity: Sculptra can improve skin laxity by stimulating collagen production, which leads to improved skin elasticity and firmness.
The Key Benefits of Sculptra:
- Collagen stimulation: Sculptra works by stimulating the production of collagen, a protein that provides structural support to the skin. Increased collagen production helps to improve skin elasticity and firmness over time.
- Natural-looking results: Sculptra provides gradual and subtle results, leading to a natural-looking outcome. The treatment helps to restore facial volume and enhance contours without giving an overfilled or “done” appearance.
- Long-lasting effects: The results of Sculptra can last up to two years or more, depending on individual factors such as age, lifestyle, and metabolism. The longevity of the effects makes it a desirable option for those seeking long-term improvement.
- Non-surgical treatment: Sculptra is a non-surgical procedure that involves injecting the product into the targeted areas. This means there is no need for incisions, anesthesia, or a lengthy recovery period compared to surgical interventions.
- Versatility: Sculptra can be used to address various concerns, including volume loss in the cheeks, deep folds and wrinkles, and contour deficiencies in the temples, chin, and jawline.

- Massaging: Gentle massaging of the treated areas may be recommended to help distribute the product evenly and prevent the formation of nodules.
- Ice packs: Applying ice packs or cold compresses can help reduce swelling and discomfort immediately after the treatment.
- Sun protection: It is crucial to protect the treated areas from excessive sun exposure and use sunscreen with a high SPF to prevent pigmentation changes.
- Avoiding strenuous activities: For a few days after the treatment, it may be advised to avoid activities that could increase blood flow to the face, such as intense exercise.
- Follow-up Treatments: Sculptra typically requires multiple treatment sessions spread out over a few months- to achieve optimal results. Dr. Ahmad Othman, Dermatologist in Dubai will determine the recommended treatment plan based on your individual needs.
