“The talk of the aesthetics industry town”, Sculptra is the first and only FDA-approved PLLA facial injectable treatment proven to stimulate the skin’s own collagen production, working gradually to rebuild collagen – restoring the skin’s scaffolding from the inside out, smoothing facial wrinkles, reducing the appearance of smile lines, for example, and delivering a more youthful-looking appearance overall.

There’s no skirting around the issue, the largest culprit for collagen depletion is age and, while collagen levels vary from person to person (depending on the results of the genetic lottery) studies agree that, from our mid-twenties, most of us experience a decrease in collagen production of about 1%. By our mid-40s we’re looking at that percentage having steadily increased, year on year, to 25%. So, while you may not notice the decrease of collagen in your 20s, by the time you’re nearing 50, your skin’s mid-life crisis could be well – and noticeably – underway.

With a seemingly endless array of anti-ageing treatments on the market, from collagen creams to collagen supplements, it’s important to know that not all anti-ageing treatments deliver on their promises. The fact is, topical creams don’t penetrate deeply enough to affect real change and the jury’s still out on the efficacy of ingestible collagen. Simply put, if you want to target the underlying causes of facial ageing proactively, not just address the symptoms reactively, a series of Sculptra treatments is the answer. Why? Because, as an injectable, Sculptra delivers a substantial collagen boost, turning back your skin’s clock by giving collagen production, at the deepest layers of your skin, a wakeup call.

As our industry-leading medical aesthetics doctors know all too well, sustainable, long-term results are achieved with a proven process, not a quick-fix, which is why Sculptra is a perfect fit for Skin Renewal and its clients. Once one of their medical aesthetic doctors have determined that Sculptra is right for your skin and your skin goals, the world-class team behind Skin Renewal’s nationwide presence will more than likely recommend a series of three Sculptra treatments to achieve gradual results – including restoration of facial volume and youthful fullness. But don’t just take Skin Renewal’s word for it, extensive clinical trials report that an impressive 94% of Sculptra clients agree that their treatment results looked natural two years after treatment.

Frequently Asked Questions

Sculptra® is an injectable biostimulator, that gradually induces collagen neogenesis through a controlled inflammatory response for firmer, fuller skin. Sculptra’s effects develop gradually due to the time needed for the body to stimulate collagen production. Sculptra® renews the skin by improving the appearance of wrinkles up to 24 months after the last treatment.

Sculptra® treatments are available in Gauteng at FourwaysParkhurstMorningside, BedfordviewWest Rand, Waterfall and Illovo as well as at Brooklyn and Irene and in the Western Cape at Cape QuarterClaremontConstantiaStellenboschWillowbridgePaarl, and in KwaZulu-Natal at BallitoDurban & Umhlanga.

As we age, so does the skin, and its underlying structures. Collagen loss, bone remodeling, and fat redistribution all contribute to changes that result in a less youthful appearance. In humans, collagen corresponds to 75% of the dry weight of skin and to 33% of the total protein, providing support and maintaining skin shape. As the production of collagen decreases with age, so does the quality of the collagen. In addition, collagen degradation increases with age. As collagen depletes, elasticity and volume are lost.

All areas on the face except:

  • Eyelid and crow’s feet
  • Hyperdynamic areas
  • Red of the lips
  • Forehead lines and vermillion border
  • Nose

Results obtained with Sculptra® treatment are gradual as collagen production is stimulated and skin appearance improves. Changes are subtle, and usually aren’t apparent immediately after the first treatment. Improvements may last for up to 25 months after the initial treatment.

Your doctor will inform you of the potential risks and side effects. If you experience any side effects, please contact your doctor. The anticipated injection related reactions include transient bleeding from the needle stick, pain, localised redness, bruising, haematoma, or oedema, which generally resolve within 2–6 days.
