As part of skin ageing, the collagen and elastin content of the skin rapidly decreases. As a result, the skin becomes thinner, the elasticity of the skin decreases and the formation of wrinkles increases.

For a long-term, natural effect, the body’s own collagen production must be effectively stimulated. This is where treatment with Sculptra® comes in.

Sculptra® is a biostimulant that stimulates the body’s own collagen synthesis so that a long-lasting effect can be achieved.

What is Sculptra® and how does it work?

Sculptra® is a biostimulant with the active ingredient PLLA (Poly-L-Lactic Acid). This active ingredient has been used successfully and safely in medicine for several years. It has also been approved by the American FDA authority for use in collagen formation. When Sculptra® is injected, collagen production is stimulated in the deep layers of the skin and the connective tissue is tightened. The skin is visibly smoothed and its elasticity is increased. This is also the decisive difference to conventional hyaluronic acid fillers, which merely fill the skin. The natural result of Sculptra® with the body’s own collagen formation is visible after a few weeks.

Which bodyparts can be treated with Sculptra®?

  • Face and neck for wrinkle treatment and improvement of skin quality
  • Back of the hand to increase volume and improve skin quality
  • To increase volume and improve skin firmness in the area of the buttocks
Treatment Room Zürich

What is the procedure of a treatment with Sculptra® ?

We perform the Sculptra® treatment exclusively with micro cannulas. Through fine entry points in the skin, we can thus treat the product without pain and with considerably less subsequent swelling (in contrast to the conventional pointed needles). After the treatment, the patient is ready for social activities without any downtime.

How many treatments are needed for an ideal result?

Most of our patients perform 2 to 3 treatments to achieve a fresh look with a long-lasting effect. The treatments are performed at 6-week intervals.

How long do the results of your Sculptra® treatment last?

Unlike treatments with hyaluronic acid fillers, results with Sculptra® last up to 2 years. Most of our patients perform 1 to 2 follow-up treatments a year in the following years to maintain the desired results.

How much does a Sculptra® treatment cost?

A single Sculptra® treatment starts from CHF 800. For patients who plan several treatments from the outset, we offer cheaper Sculptra® package treatments.

What should be considered for the aftercare of Sculptra®?

For the aftercare we recommend our patients our Sculptra® 5 rule: The treatment area should be massaged 5 times a day for 5 minutes during the first days. Otherwise, the same rules apply as after a hyaluronic acid filler treatment. Here we give our post-treatment flyer to the patients after the treatment.
