What is Sculptra?

The sculptra treatment is an anti-ageing injectable solution. It can smooth the skin, restore more youthful contours to the face, improve skin tone or be used to enhance your features. 

It contains poly-L-lactic acid, which stimulates collagen production in the skin over time. This results in a gradual and natural-looking improvement in facial volume and contour. 

It is particularly effective at treating very deep wrinkles and folds and results are long-lasting, giving it the popular name, the Liquid Facelift.

What are the benefits of using Sculptra?

Sculptra filler has been used as an anti-ageing treatment for more than 20 years across the world. It can fill and correct ageing concerns and facial irregularities by using a biodegradable material known as poly-l-lactic acid that corrects the deepest of creases and wrinkles. 

Studies have shown that Sculptra can even correct lip atrophy, a condition that causes facial fat loss.

The Sculptra procedure

Sculptra does not require skin testing prior to use and it may be safely combined with other non-invasive aesthetic treatments such as Wrinkle Injections and dermal fillers. 

This helps to give you an immediate improvement while the long-term effects of Sculptra are being produced.

What does the process involve?

During your consultation, we will discuss your ageing concerns and whether Sculptra will address these issues. During your Sculptra procedure, we use topical anaesthetic to numb the treatment area to minimise any mild discomfort you may feel although Sculptra is injected using a fine needle.

Sculptra aesthetics works by stimulating collagen production in the skin and fills in volume that has been lost with age. 

Results are gradual and, depending on the level of improvement desired and the severity of the problem, anywhere between three to five monthly treatments may be needed. 

Once the desired look is achieved, Sculptra produces long-lasting treatments, with results typically lasting longer than two years.

What happens after?

After three treatments, your face will look fuller and fine lines and wrinkles will appear softened. However, these are not the true effects and this volume will subside slightly as the water found in Sculptra™ is absorbed into the body.

You can expect to see clear improvements six weeks after initial treatment and this will continue to improve with each course of treatments. As your body begins to produce increased facial collagen, the connective tissue where ageing has had its effects will naturally rebuild, smoothing out wrinkles and fine lines

Where can Sculptra be used?

Sculptra can be used across the face and body. However it is most commonly used in the following areas:

  1. Cheeks: By using Sculptra, one can restore lost volume in the cheeks, effectively lifting and contouring the mid-face area.
  2. Nasolabial Folds: These are the lines that run from the sides of the nose to the corners of the mouth. Sculptra can help soften these folds.
  3. Hands: It can make the back of your hands fuller, making veins and tendons less noticeable.
  4. Marionette Lines: These are the lines that run from the corners of the mouth to the chin. Sculptra can be used to reduce the appearance of these lines.
  5. Buttocks: Instead of surgery, Sculptra can make your buttocks shapelier and fuller.
  6. Jawline: Using Sculptra, individuals can enhance the definition and contour of their jawline, achieving a more youthful appearance.
  7. Knees: It’s used to fix wrinkles and droopy skin around the knees, making them look younger.
  8. Temples: Volume loss in the temples can make the face appear hollow or aged. Luckily, Sculptra can be injected in this area.
  9. Abdomen: It can tighten loose belly skin, often when you’re getting a tummy tuck or body contouring.
  10. Hands: Sculptra has the ability to improve ageing hands by adding volume and reducing the visibility of veins and tendons..
  11. Neck: This treatment can also help with fine lines and wrinkles on the neck and bring back its fullness.
  12. Décolletage: It’s good for smoothing out wrinkles and lines on the chest and upper chest area.
  13. Arms: It can treat loose skin and wrinkles on the upper arms, giving them a tighter and younger appearance.

Who can get Sculptra?

Practitioners use Sculptra for people in their 30s and older who are experiencing signs of ageing. Younger individuals may not be appropriate candidates unless they have specific concerns related to facial volume loss.

Another aspect to take into account when deciding to get Sculptra is your medical history. Certain medical conditions or medications might make you ineligible for the treatment.

How long does Sculptra last?

The results of Sculptra can last for an impressive period of 2 to 3 years, setting it apart from many other treatments available today.

How much does Sculptra cost?

We can’t speak for other UK clinics but at Wimpole Aesthetics the cost of getting Sculptra is £600 per treatment.

What Does Getting Started With Us Look Like?

If you’ve been considering an aesthetic treatment to rejuvenate your skin or reshape your body, then the first step is to get in touch with the clinic to arrange a consultation with our medical director Dr Joshua Berkowitz or one of his team, depending on your requirements.

Call us on 0207 224 2247 or email us on to arrange your consultation.

The consultation is an essential part of the patient journey as it gives us the opportunity to discuss your objectives and the outcome you’re hoping to achieve. We will talk you through the procedure or treatment plan, clearly explain any possible risks and the results you can expect, as well as answer all of your questions.

Procedures at Wimpole Aesthetics are carried out under the direction of our medical director Dr Joshua Berkowitz and his team. We aim to deliver practical, safe and effective medical aesthetic alternatives to cosmetic surgery whilst always respecting a patient’s privacy, dignity and confidentiality.

Dr Natalie Hammer

Dr. Natalie Hammer, an Aesthetic Medicine Practitioner from the USA, is a GMC registered doctor with 14 years of medical experience, 8 of which are in aesthetics. 

Sculptra is intended for restoration or correction of the signs of facial fat, whether that’s due to ageing, illness or as a result of extreme weight loss. It can also be used to enhance facial features in younger patients.
Poly-l-lactic acid is a synthetic material that is biocompatible, which means it does not harm the body and no skin testing is required before use. It is also bioabsorbable which means it is easily broken down by the body. It has been used safely in medicine for over 25 years in dissolvable stitches and soft tissue implants.
There may be some slight discomfort, but we apply a topical anaesthetic cream prior to your treatment to minimise any discomfort.
Immediately after your first session, there will be swelling from the injections and the water component in Sculptra and that will add volume to your face. After a few days, the swelling will subside as the water is absorbed by your body and your face may appear as it did prior to treatment. However, over the next couple of weeks Sculptra will stimulate collagen production, restoring lost volume.
At that point, you can decide if you require another Sculptra treatment to produce the desired effect. Patients love the gradual and natural rejuvenating effects of Sculptra.
A single treatment will cost £450. Most patients will require at least two treatments to see the maximum benefits.
Typically, you will start to see the results after a week or two post treatment. After you’ve completed the treatment programme, there will be a noticeable improvement in skin quality and health. Results can last 12 to 18 months and then we advise you follow a maintenance programme.

What our patients say

Natalie and Dr Josh have been incredible in boosting my confidence and my skin! They truly listen and deliver 100% natural results every time. Natalie is completely honest, professional, has integrity and that’s why I trust her fully. Wimpole clinic have a much greater range of cutting edge treatments beyond anti wrinkle treatment that have resulted in my skin improving with age. It’s mad but true. They always assess what is right for my face and my skin on the day and advise according to what my skin needs. I’ve been going to Wimpole Aesthetics for years now, initially drawn to their incredible IV boosts but am now unable to ever turn back. Class, quality and aesthetic results that are truly worth it!!!

I have been living with scarring above my upper lip, as a result of electrolysis treatment 25 years ago, in the form of a deep vertical line and small indentations in the skin. I sought help from Wimpole Aesthetics, and from the moment that I entered the small, personal clinic I was totally put at ease and welcomed by the extremely professional and friendly team. I received a course of Mesotherapy and Dermapen treatment and am absolutely delighted with the results. I had almost given up on ever having smooth line-free skin above my upper lip again. I highly recommend letting Wimpole Aesthetics take care of you.

5 star

Having lived in Australia for over 10 years, my skin had suffered mild sun-damage and had developed a lot of discolouration on my face in particular. Also, as I approached the age of 40, I noticed a lot of wrinkles appearing! I decided to have Microdermabrasion treatment and the improvements after just 3 treatments were extremely encouraging. I have booked a further 2 treatments in coming months and I am so excited about seeing further benefits to the look and texture of my skin.
