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 ›

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'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

I am/was happy... thought I noticed a difference when I first had the sculptra injected... could be from the swelling. I did bruise, which I was not expecting to so badly. It took 2 weeks for the bruising to go away. Maybe you can suggest something to lessen this.Hi, I had sculptra about 5-6... READ MORE

I just had my treatment today. I have been thinking of this for at least a year and I decided to go ahead because I saw good results in the nurse who works for Dr. D. After reading some of the horror stories, I am praying that I made the correct decision. I have been massaging my face thoroughly... READ MORE

Lumps in hands from sculptra after approx 6 months. I have about 15 lumps on my hands. Scultpra don't want to know. Nor does the person who did it. I had 3 cut out but they just grew back. Some are rock hard. Others are softer.My hands are totally disfigured. I don't know how to sue. One doctor... READ MORE

My experience was great in the begining. After the second treatment nodules appeared. I was mortified. The doctor acted like it wasn't a big deal. I was given some cortisone but there was no improvment.I will not ever get any more or recommend it to anyone. I will do what ever I can to convince... READ MORE

I have had two sculptra treatments for facial fat loss, the last one on 5 Jun.I noticed a nodule on 22 Jun. When I reported this to the Dr I was advised to vigorously message the area, the nodule became larger. I contacted the Dr a second time and was given a cortizone shot and told that it may...

I had Sculptra injected into both cheeks in the March of 2002 and by October 2002 I started to notice small lumps under the skin on both sides of my face, together with skin discolouration. I returned to my Beauty Therapist, a qualified nurse, who refused to be involved, referring me back to... READ MORE

Pros: None Cons: Lumpy - Lumps last a long time. I had 1 sculptra treatment over 2 years ago. I am still dealing with lumps! I've even had the lumps treated with a steriod called canalog (not sure of the spelling). I am still trying to get rid of lumps. Even the smaller lumps are visible in... READ MORE

I had 1 vial of Sculptra done 5 weeks ago. The derm did not pre mix the vial 2 hours prior as I decided spur of the moment to get the treatment.I would like to know if not pre-mixing the Sculptra powder 2 hours prior can cause problems down the road for me? I also expected it to be painful as... READ MORE

I've had 3 sculptra treatments at $1000 each. I am about 8 weeks post my last treatment and I have seen no results whatsoever. I don't mind when I buy a $50 night cream and don't see any results. But $3000 and the pain, bruising and now a small lump at the corner of my eye? For this I paid... READ MORE

I had one appointment of Sculptra injections 10 months ago to correct my really thin face. I am 47 and in very good health, and Sculptra appealed to me because it "uses your own body's natural collagen". I had no idea how scary that would become.2 vials were administered in my cheek... READ MORE
