Sculptra is intended for use in people with healthy immune systems. Sculptra is injected in or under the facial skin through a small needle for collagen stimulation. A treatment regimen of Sculptra consists of up to 4 injection sessions scheduled 3-4 weeks apart.
Unlike dermal fillers, Sculptra provides a gradual improvement of the depressed area over several weeks as the treatment effects occur.
Results may last up to 25 months.
As with any injectable procedures, you can expect injection-related side effects, such as bleeding, tenderness or pain/discomfort, redness, bruising, or swelling. These side effects generally resolve within a few hours to a few days but could last for 14 days or longer. You will be advised to massage the treated area for 5 minutes 5 times per day for 5 days after your treatment.
Most patients are able to get back to their activities immediately following treatment.
