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 ›

Botox smoothed out my forehead scar & wrinkles. Sculptra added volume to my face. Thermage tightened my neck.Had three scultra treatments to add volume back to my face. With a few numbing injections, the discomfort from the procedure was minimal.I am very satisfied with the results. I had... READ MORE

I have lipoatrophy on my face due to HIV med. I was told by this doctor Sculptra will work. I can get rid of the sickening look on my face with 3 treatments.I did 2 already and I patiently waited for 4 months. The result: zero. Now my doctor said I need 5 treatments, "maybe" after 5... READ MORE

It was fine, overall. I experienced some pain, but overall I would say it was bearable.The doctor used a numbing cream,that I had to put on 45 minutes prior to injection. The first time I went, I had both Botox and Juvederm. The results were fantastic. I was very satisfied. I did experience... READ MORE

I am a male in my late 40s with serious hollowing in my cheeks, I had the injection (one vial p/cheek) performed by my doctor approximately 10 days ago. The procedural experience was fine, I experienced no bruising but noticeable swelling which actually looked great! But my Dr. explained that it... READ MORE

If there would be an "undecided" option I would have picked that one. I had one injection of Sculptra 7 weeks ago. Till about week 6 I didn't see any effect. Now when I catch my image in a mirror somewhere I think: hmmm, I look good....I think... but I'm not really sure what changed. ... READ MORE

After some weight loss and because of the natural aging process...I'm 45. I started to lose fat volume in my face. I decided on Sculptra because of it's long lasting effects.I am very happy with the results. The Sculptra filled in the hollows under my eyes and also gave me more volume in my... READ 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 2 treatments within the last 3 months. It was very painful and costly. At first I saw a big improvement, but the results have gone away and I am very unhappy.I did it to increase volume in my face, but now I don't see any difference. I noticed at 8 weeks after the second treatment... 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... READ MORE

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
