Sculptra: Collagen Dermal Filler Treatment in Singapore

What is Sculptra Dermal Filler?

Sculptra  is an injectable poly-L-lactic acid treatment that works with your body to revitalise collagen production and establish a scaffold under the skin to add volume and augment facial features.

Why is collagen so important?

Collagen is a protein found in muscles, bones, skin, blood vessels, joints, and tendons. Collagen is the compound that gives our skin strength and elasticity, along with the capability to regenerate and replace skin cells.

As we age, our body’s collagen production slows down. This causes undesirable signs of ageing such as wrinkles on the face, and sagging skin.

How is Sculptra dermal filler treatment different from other forms of collagen replacement?

Most collagen replacements such as collagen creams or supplements are likely to be ineffective because collagen molecules are too large to penetrate into the skin. Hence, they often do not work effectively or bring about any long-lasting improvement.

Additionally, results from collagen dietary supplements have so far been inconclusive. This is because collagen is a protein that, when ingested, is broken down by the digestive system.

Sculptra dermal fillers, on the other hand, are injected into the skin. This allows the micro-particles to be absorbed by the body to kickstart the collagen production.

Over the next 6 to 8 weeks after the treatment, new collagen strands help to restore facial volume, giving you a fuller, plumper face, with less visible wrinkles and folds.

How is Sculptra dermal filler administered?

The treatment is done by injecting the dermal filler deep into the dermis, where strands of collagen support your skin structure.

Most doctors advise undergoing 3 sessions of Sculptra dermal filler over a period of a few months. The amount of dermal filler may vary from person to person, depending on how much collagen was lost.
