An FDA-approved injectable, Sculptra fills shallow facial lines with small beads made of polylactic acid. As the beads naturally break down, the body may produce more collagen, leading to long-term skincare effects. Typical results last at least two years. LEARN MORE ›

Personally, I can not say for sure if it was worth it or not. My injections were done back in October 2009.After reading all the postings on this site, not sure I would use Sculptra again. I have not had any side effects yet, however I used a homedics massager on my face 2-5 xs a day for... READ MORE

I had been considering other treatments to fill in lost volume over the years but decided that sculptra would be the most beneficial and appropriate becuase of how long it lasts.Even with the numbing cream I did feel some discomfort but it was tolerable. The results really exceeded my... READ MORE

I have had a vigorous immune response to this product. It has been over a year and it is still all uneven and lumpy. Not the look I was going for. It looks like I have a disease, which I may actually have. The foreign body response sets of an inflammatory cascade that is both local and... READ MORE

No pros so far. I did not expect Sculptra to blow up my face and change my smile so much. It's only been a week but I am upset that I may be stuck with this for a few years. I went to my dermatologist for botox which I received and had good experience with for several years. At that time, I... READ MORE

Austin, TX: I have had great results with Sculptra. The key is to get a physician (MD) who knows what he/she is doing and has been trained to use Sculptra. Make sure you ask the physician if he/she has been trained to use Sculptra and how long they have been using it.I have used Sculptra in my... READ MORE

I was never given any warnings. I was told that sculptra was an inert biocompatable biodegradable filler that would stimulate the skin to appear thicker and cover an old injury i had.  I was told allergy testing isnt needed because it is made of the same stuff that absorbable sutures is...

I had the procedure done about a week ago. Immediately after I had no swelling, no brusing, and no pain at all. I have been massaging 5 times for 5 minutes for 5 days and so far so good. I will continue to massage just to make sure I get no lumps.I have seen a little of a diffeence but nothing... READ MORE

My Dr. has very gentle hands with his injections.I've had both Botox and Sculptra and I have never bruised or felt any pain. I love the natural look with the Sculptra, although it did take some time to start seeing the effects. My friends noticed before I did, of course. READ MORE

I had my first treatment of 2 vials 10 weeks ago and a second treatment 2 weeks ago, again 2 vials. I am in SoCal and my doctor charges $750 per vial. Recently, I have had several comments about me looking so young for my age, 53. It has given me a real boost. It has lifted my eyes somewhat,... READ MORE

Help- I'm desperate. Its been over a year of severe depression due to a sculptra treatment I had. I've cried countless nights thinking I've permanently damaged my face.Over a year ago I had treatment and I received a LOT of overgrowth and hated the effect. I had a kenalog treatment to treat...

Would feel more satisfied if I noticed major improvement, which justified the expense. I have yet to see that. I am majorly disappointed thus far.I had two vials of sculptra injected almost four weeks ago. What should be my realistic expectations? Can I expect a large gain in volume and when... READ MORE

I went back to my same doc who has performed lips and botox and frown line fillers on me 4x before. I have never had any side effects or complications. as a gift, he offered sculptra in my cheek areas to help "balance out my face".He did my right side apple of my cheek area, and there... READ MORE

Amazing results after 5 years - just looking for maintenance right now - I did it mainly because of premature aging and the so-called gaunt lookHi everyone, I started with sculptra (newfill) in 2003 with Doctor Amard in Paris and now desperately seeking someone reputable (preferably trained...

I thought it only appropriate that I post my experience as I have appreciated the feedback I have read on from so many others.After reading much about sculptra and visiting two different doctors in the Pasadena area I decided to try the procedure. The Dr. I went with said he has done 1000s of... READ MORE

Hi all,, im a male and i had sculptra all over my cheek area and temple area and two viles were used. Okay i was bruised and swollen like mad for 10 days and then it subsided.My treatment was done by a plastic surgeon who told me the reason people get lumps is because they do not massage the...

I had sculptra yesterday. My doctor has a very good reputation. I cant remember though how long and how often I should continue to massage.I had it done around the cheek/eye area. I have a bit of swelling under one eye with fluid accumulation under that same eye, but it is not bad at all. I... READ MORE

I did it because i was scared of botox and the doctor told me that this product produces colegan off of my own body. now 2 years later i'm depressed, miserable, and frustrated. someone please help.i need help i have had sculptra noduls for two years i have tried everything to remove my sculptra...

I'm 48 and the expensive creams didn't cut it anymore and I was too afraid to go under the knife. After doing a lot of research, (I soak up info like a sponge) I decided to get Sculptra; mainly because it last longer and works with your own collagen.I have to say I am getting compliments...

I have had three sculptra treatments over the last couple of months and am due another next week. I am very happy so far with the results. My cheeks were sunken from weight loss and I was very unhappy. I now have a much fuller face and love it.I was told to massage once a day for five minutes... READ MORE

I did not expect Scuptra to turn me into George Clooney and I had very realistic expectations. I just wanted the un-natural sunken 'valleys' on my cheeks to be filled in. After four treatments, I am quite happy with the results and I have not experienced side effects described in here. I had... READ MORE
