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 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

First Sculptra session was 2/2009: -received 2 vials this session (saw sculptra vial/bottle on the tray next to i believe were 10 syringes) VERY PAINFUL -exprerienced excessive swelling & bruising that was grossly visible immediately and up to 2 weeks -no other adverse effects... READ MORE

Trial run i was not informed it could leave your skin pitted after five years, but i know of no other treatment i have had that would cause this.five years after having some sculptra injections in cheek wrinkles my skin looks somewhat pitted. the surgeon who used the sculptra say is looks more...

I have no pros, since the very beginning I had every day a bad surprise and that scared me to death and now I am having anxiety and depression, the cons are that I am having scars like stretch marks and holes in my face, the holes drive to deep wrinkles that I never had before. My doctor does... READ MORE

I believe the folks with bad experiences had bad doctors. My doctor told me that she thinned it with water to help avoid the lumps and also I was instructed to massage the treated areas, 5 minutes, 5 times a day for 5 days after the treatment. I had no lumps and fabulous results that really... READ MORE

I had sculptra done in february because the skin around my mouth and jaw was starting to sag. It really bothered me alot so I asked what best form of treatment was and was told sculptra. I did a little research online and all seemed good. So I then booked consultation with a plastic surgeon... READ MORE

This procedure is the most natural I have ever seen. I actually went to work the next day. I had a few minor marks on my face that were hardly noticeable. the change was intant. the solution goes down after a few days but the transformation was like a miracle. I looked 10 yrs younger and... READ MORE

I am writing in this particular site because after spending an hour or so in here I am shocked at how misleading the info is in regards to sculptra. The truth is that granulomas form - often times they can be seen. The granulomas are permanent and extremely disfiguring. This material sculptra... READ MORE

This product disfigured me, caused lumps, constant inflammation causing pain and distorted appearance, made me physically ill (it is a synthetic) and consequently had very negative effects on my life.  AND, my doctor was a NYC "trainer" for Sculptra.  So, it's NOT about... READ MORE

I went to a cosmetic surgeon for his professional recommendation about fillers. He said my face was thin and a new product "Sculptra" had just been approved by the FDA (2004). At his recommendation, I allowed him to inject Sculptra. I did my homework - read about the usual fillers... READ MORE
