What Should I Expect During My Sculptra® Treatment?
Sculptra® Aesthetic is administered with a small gauge needle. We may apply a topical cream to your skin to numb the area. Several injections are needed to consistently soften the lines and folds.
You can return to your activities immediately after the appointment. Common symptoms after the injections include itching, pinpoint bleeding, swelling and tenderness. These symptoms may last 24 to 48 hours.
Will I Have Scars After Getting Sculptra®?

When Will I See the Results?
You will see some changes in your appearance after each appointment. We recommend a series of three treatments for best results. As the collagen develops in your skin, your lines and wrinkles will gradually disappear.
What Are Possible Complications of Sculptra®?
Complications are rare when Sculptra® Aesthetic is administered by one of our specially trained plastic surgeons and aestheticians. You may be at higher risk for complications if you are allergic to the active ingredients in Sculptra® Aesthetic or have a history of hypertrophic scarring or keloids. You should not have treatments with the products if you have a skin infection or if the skin is inflamed.
