More About Sculptra

There are plenty of options for getting rid of facial lines and wrinkles – but not all of them target the same type of wrinkles. For instance:

  • Some treatments target active wrinkles – those that are formed as a result of expressions, such as frown lines.
  • Others target static wrinkles, which are caused by loss of elasticity in the skin, which is pulled downwards by the force of gravity. These types of wrinkles tend to show regardless of your expression or muscle actions; eventually, dynamic wrinkles become static.

Sculptra works best on shallow and deep static facial lines, including the nasolabial folds, giving subtle results that are natural-looking.

How Does Sculptra Work?

Sculptra is an injectable facial dermal filler, made from a biodegradable and biocompatible material called poly-L-lactic acid. It has been in medical use in dissolving stitches for decades.

It works by replacing collagen, the essential protein required for building healthy skin, which we produce less of as we get older.

Why Have Sculptra in Thailand?

Thailand has many state-of-the-art medical facilities and clinics, staffed by practitioners who are well-trained and qualified. The Thais take pride in their work, always committed to providing excellent services and thinking of everything their patients need to make their experience as straightforward and enjoyable as it can possibly be.

Services for international patients visiting Thailand for treatment are typically very good, with adherence to international hygiene and safety procedures, such as the International Standards Organization (ISO).

What Does Sculptra Treatment Involve and how Long Does it Take?

One treatment can be carried out in less than an hour. However, Sculptra is designed to work gradually and it usually works best as a series of three treatment sessions with at least a month between each one. The treatment stimulates collagen, and this process takes four to six weeks, hence the waiting time in-between each session.

Each session will involve injecting the product into the specific areas under your skin. The changes to your face will happen subtly, but more noticeably, usually a few weeks after each session.

Things to note about your recovery/downtime following treatment:

  • You may experience discomfort, redness, swelling, itching or bruising afterwards, but it should subside after a few days.
  • You will need to massage the areas where you have had the treatment several times a day, to distribute the product, but your practitioner will give you precise instructions.
  • After your course of treatment has finished you should have visibly noticeable results for up to two years.

How Much Can I Save on Sculptra in Thailand Compared to Australia and New Zealand?

The cost of Sculptra in Thailand is around AUD $1,000 dollars a vial, with most patients requiring three vials for the course of their treatments, equating to savings of around AUD $3,000 in total.

In Australia, one vial costs around AUD $1,200 ($3,600 in total), so you can expect savings of around 70% in Thailand in the price of treatment alone.
