"Friends are telling me I look very young and never more beautiful - I'm 60!

When I first started treatment I only wanted to use small amounts of injections. Now I leave the amounts up to Dr. Rakus and I can truly say 'more is better' - don't hesitate to go for it!"

Sculptra™ Wrinkle Injections- restoring volume and correcting contour defects

Why Sculptra™?

The natural ageing process causes skin to lose its full, firm, youthful appearance. Skin becomes thinner and loses its elasticity, causing wrinkles and folds to appear. Fat tissue is lost and patients look older. Dr Rita Rakus offers consultations on fillers for wrinkles such as Sculptra™ which can help restore lost volume to the face and smooth deep folds and wrinkles.

Who?

For patients who want to restore volume and contour to their face or lose deep lines and folds.

Areas for Sculptra™ are:
Upper Face Crow's feet

Mid Face Nasolabial folds

How Sculptra™ works

The patient should be re-evaluated no sooner than 2 weeks after each injection session to determine if additional correction is needed.

After approximately 6 weeks clear improvement can be seen.

Larger volume defects may involve further treatment.

Volume effects for over 3 years

A recent European study has shown:

  • Long-lasting correction of small and large tissue defects.
  • Volume effects were found to persist in numerous patients for over 3 years.
  • Sculptra™ has the potential to improve quality of life.

A profile of individual mean dermal thickness as measured by ultrasound over time: The Vega study

Poly-L-lacticacid implants to correct facial lipoatrophy in 50 HIV-infected patients.

Sculptra Vega Study

Treatment session - Days O, 15, 30, 45, and 60 (if needed).

Follow-up visits-weeks 12, 24, 48, 72, and 96.

  • Sculptra™ provided a near 3-fold increase from baseline in mean dermal thickness.
  • Increases in mean dermal thickness persisted throughout the study period.
  • All patients markedly improved from baseline.

Sculptra™ a facial aesthetic treatment option:

  • Some facial filling options do not provide long term correction of facial lipoatrophy.
  • Permanent implants and injectable products cannot accommodate continued changes in appearance that occur with age.
  • Compared with fillers PLLA (Sculptra™) provides more suitable volume enhancement to correct the signs of lipoatrophy.

"Injectable PLLA (Sculptra) is not a dermal filler and it should not be used like one"

Sculptra™ safety

  • Contains Poly-L-lactic acid which is biocompatible and biodegradeable.
  • Synthetically produced and allergy testing is unnecessary.
  • Used as a polymer in medicine for 25 years.
  • PLLA has been safely used for about 10 years in orthopaedic and facial surgery and for the correction of scars and wrinkles.
  • Well tolerated.
  • Minimally invasive with a low frequency of side effects.

Over 150,000 patients have been treated world-wide since 1999.

More than 17,000 patients have been treated in the UK since 2005.

Overall PLLA (Sculptra) has been found to be well-tolerated and has been shown to have a good safety profile in four clinical trials.
