Review of Sculptra in Singapore
Of the various anti-ageing techniques available today, based on personal experience, I would have to say Sculptra ranks among the best in Singapore. First of all, Sculpta in Singapore can only be performed by certified doctors. This already gives you a sense of trust as beauty saloons can pretty much run any treatment they want but doctor treatments have to be regulated by the Ministry of Health, which ensures the treatments work. Sculptra cost is also relatively competitive. If we look at how much it cost to do Sculptra vs other methods such as fillers, facelifts and machine-based treatments and facials in beauty salons and spas over the long term, we can see that Sculptra’s cost probably are around the same. For the price of around $1k+ per shot, Sculptra is cost effective.
In this blog, I will review Sculptra in Singapore more in-depth. But first, a quick introduction to why I turned to it.
Once a woman hit 30, she either begins getting ageing quite quickly, or she starts worrying about every single wrinkle. This is not just a matter of vanity. It is a normal, visible process that has been happening all over her body. No lady can resist the alternative to remain young. And every lady tries with her best efforts to accomplish this goal.
Of course, the modern world has made up numerous of ways for a woman to hide her real age and to show younger appearance. There are dozens of methods for a woman to look younger – specially tailored makeup tutorials, serums, spa procedures, massages and whatever ordinary or weird you can think of to put on your facial skin. Some of these methods are ok and others are not that ok. But they all have one very big fault – they are not permanent or at least they are very timely and their effect lasts for days.
The most commonly used anti-ageing treatments in Singapore are Sculptra, Ellanse and Juvederm. You can find Juvederm and Sculptra reviews in Singapore quite easily. All 3 help the face look young again, with each having its own benefits and drawbacks. As most of my personal experience is with Sculptra and Ellanse, I will be reviewing the 2 of them more. Despite being less common in Singapore, I opted for Sculptra after reading about the application effects of Juvederm. It helped that I had a great doctor who was able to answer the questions I needed to know too. As mentioned earlier, Sculptra cost in Singapore is also very acceptable. For those interested, I went to Dr Lee Mun Heng who practices as Cambridge Medical. You can follow this link to his website for Sculptra.
Now as for both Ellanse and Sculptra, they work by stimulating the collagen in your skin to reverse the ageing process. This results in disappearing wrinkles and tightened skin. The difference between the 2 lies mainly in how deep it penetrates and how “heavy” it is. As such, you see neither of these being prescribed to extremely sensitive areas such as the eyelid etc.
As for the cost of it, Sculptra shots in Singapore usually come at around the $1,000 to $2,000 mark. Prices can go up or down depending on how many needles you take. But the effect is extremely long-lasting (around 2 years) which makes it a lot more bang-for-buck than other treatments around. The way Sculptra reverses the aging process using natural collagen also makes it a lot more attractive than conventional beauty treatments or plastic surgery.
You can find out more about these as I link you to Sculptra reviews and compare the cost and clinics available.
