Most patients require 2 or 3 treatments to obtain the desired results, which last considerably longer than alternative treatments such as dermal fillers. Patients with severe fat loss will require 4 or 5 treatments. The precise number of treatments required will be discussed with patients at consultation as the number of treatments required will depend on each patient’s skin condition and desired results.
Each treatment takes around 45 minutes. As the Sculptura is inert, there is no need to perform skin tests. It is important to realise that Sculptra will not prevent the loss of facial fat but helps to improve the appearance of the patient by improving the skin’s thickness.
