Looking to get rid of deep lines and folds on your face? You can with Sculptra. In Phuket you can get the procedure done while you are on holiday – saving yourself a pretty penny and returning home looking a million dollars.
Sculptra targets deep static facial lines – that’s to say ones that you can see all the time, as opposed to active lines which are formed from your expressions. Active lines do eventually become static ones – and so it’s worth bearing that in mind too for future reference!
Sculptra is a facial injectable, known as a dermal filler. Its active ingredient, poly-L-lactic acid is biodegradable and biocompatible and has been used for medical purposes for years.
As we get older we produce less collagen in our skin. Collagen is one of the main building blocks of healthy, youthful-looking skin. It forms a matrix below the surface of the skin, but as we age this matrix begins to breakdown, and because we produce less collagen the repairs are not as efficient as they once were. This leads to defects and holes in the collagen, and rather like a saggy old mattress that is unsupportive, the skin is no longer firmly supported, which leads to lines and wrinkles forming, which eventually become deeper, culminating in sagging skin.
Sculptra replaces collagen, reinforcing the matrix so the skin above it becomes firm and supported.
Yes – Sculptra is suitable for:
Marionette lines (the lines that appear down the sides of your mouth down to the jaw)Nasolabial folds (the lines that appear from the nose down to the corner of the mouth)Chin wrinkles
If you’re already holidaying in Phuket you may want to give yourself a little pick-me-up while you’re there. Many people think nothing of having spa treatments and massages, and so getting a beauty procedure is not that far removed from them.
One of the major bonuses is the price. It will cost you at least 50% less than it does at home – which is not insubstantial as Sculptra is one of the more expensive dermal fillers.
The treatment is quick to administer, with minimal downtime. This means you can get on with your holiday and won’t need to spend time recovering from the procedure, like you would if you had surgery, like a facelift.
Thailand has a well-deserve reputation for providing excellent healthcare services, from spa therapies, to cosmetic surgery and to the newest cosmetic dermatology/beauty treatments that are coming to market. Choose a reputable clinic and you won’t go too far wrong.
This is the advice we give to everybody – and it really should be heeded. Although no medical procedure can ever be guaranteed 100% (and we’d say injecting stuff into your face IS a medical procedure), the least you should do is ensure you choose a reliable practitioner who had the appropriate expertise in administering Sculptra.
This is why we have made it easy for you to choose from reputable providers who we have already background-checked. We check qualifications and professional memberships of medical staff, visit clinics ourselves and publish reviews from patients who’ve used the facilities. You can check it all out on our website, compare prices and then book online, or call toll-free and speak to our Customer Care Team – it’s easy!
The treatment is carried out in less than an hour, but the exact timing depends on how many areas you are having treated. Sculptra is a subtle treatment, in that the effects work gradually. As it stimulates collagen growth, it takes 4-6 weeks for this to grow and so you will notice the effects a few weeks afer your treatment.
The product is injected into the required areas under your skin, and although you may notice a little discomfort, the after-effects of slight swelling, bruising or redness are minimal and should subside quickly.
Regularly massaging the treated areas several times a day will help to distribute the product and give better results.
Most people usually have a course of 3 treatments, 4-6 weeks apart, but the results last for around 2 years.
You can save round 50% on the cost of Sculptra in Phuket compared to prices in Australia.
