Sculptra in Singapore by Official Trainer Dr Lee Mun Heng


I knew about Cambridge Medical Group via the Social Media and especially as the leading name for Sculptra in Singapore. Apparently it was like a favourite hangout for the socialites and celebrities. Definitely with this group of atas clientele, I would assume Cambridge to be on the high end, but I had heard so many good things about them I decided it was worth a visit. When it comes to your face, I prefer to choose quality over a low Sculptra price, wouldn't you? 

Read on to see my full Sculptra review.

Where to do Sculptra in Singapore

I decided to arrange an appointment for a consultation with Dr Lee first. Dr Lee is the official trainer for Sculptra in Singapore and Southeast Asia. Perhaps he could help me to attain a flawless complexion like the socialites? I must admit that coming to such an atas place did have me worrying about the Sculptra cost. But consultant was free anyway and if his Sculptra price was too expensive, I could still decide to walk away :-)

To my surprise, Dr Lee was very approachable, humble and most importantly knowledgeable. That made me felt more comfortable in sharing with him my skin woes. In recent years, due to intensive travelling, my skin was dry. I realised my nasolabial fold (smile lines) became more obvious now. That was a sign of aging. Dr Lee is a Cambridge University med-school graduate! And as previously mentioned, him being the official Sculptra trainer appointed by pharmaceutical giant Galderma makes me feel like I can trust him a lot more. Haha!

My Singapore Sculptra Review

Dr Lee suggested using Sculptra to help me to replace the collagen I lost. Due to the hectic lifestyle, stress, modern women experience collagen loss at an even younger age like early 30s. I am turning 39 years old this year, with 2 kids. Hence I was considered lucky that my collagen loss was still mild. 


Sculptra is made from a synthetic material called poly L-lactic acid , which will gradually and naturally absorb by the body as it works to replace the loss collagen. It is different from other face fillers which give immediate volume – Sculptra takes longer to work but the eventual result is that your face gets plumped with its own collagen and not any foreign material. I found this to be a real plus point.

Poly L-lactic acid has also been used for decades as dissolvable stitches and face injectable since 1999 in over 30 countries. Hence its safety is assured.

After double-checking the Sculptra cost, I felt it was ok and I was ready to go ahead.

Excited about the Sculptra treatment
Face was cleansed thoroughly. Excited about the Sculptra treatment!

After 30 mins, I was totally numbed and all ready to kickstart my Sculptra treatment.

Doc told me I would soon resume my youth after the treatment. I am looking forward to the end results blissfully.

There was no pain at all cos my face was all numbed. No exaggerating effect immediately after the jab. It looks very natural and I hope it improves even more over time!

Getting a gentle massage to stimulate the Sculptra – I am told this is important!
Unlike other face fillers, Sculptra is one of the few treatments in Singapore where I am encouraged to go for facials immediately after the treatment. The nurse teaches me the massaging techniques which are going to activate the Sculptra further. For the next five days, I would need to massage at least three times a day to stimulate the collagen reproduction.
 no downtime or puffiness
Immediately post-procedure. There is no downtime or puffiness.


Sculptra in Singapore is like a quick fix before important appointments. All ready to go out later. 

Result was au natural

Sculptra Cost & Price

Surprisingly, Dr Lee's Sculptra cost is Singapore is also a reasonable market-rate. Phew, all this worry about being overcharged was unfounded… no wonder so many celebrities and socialites go there. I haven't tried the other treatments but the Sculptra price is definitely good!

2 weeks after Sculptra
2 weeks after my Sculptra review and experience in Singapore. Smile widely naturally with no makeup except sunblock. Can you see the collagen increase in my cheek zone? Happy, happy, happy!
Now I just hope the results last and keep improving! Doc says three sessions will be ideal but results will vary according to individuals. 
I can always come back for touch-ups later, its good to know that this is repeatable and the Sculptra price is reasonable! The final effect from Sculptra is pretty long lasting, up to 2 years.

I would suggest making an appointment to consult the doctor first to determine whether you are a suitable candidate for Sculptra before embarking on it.

    Hi Cathryn, I would like to check if you had done any follow-up Sculptra treatment at Cambridge after your 1st treatment? I understand that you had shared that the doctored informed that 3 sessions would be ideal. May I ask how long did the 1st treatment last in your case? Thank you for reading this and look forward to your response.
