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 was numbed up by cream and then waited on hour. I hate pain and usually use a dental block for restalyne in that area.-but only need numbing cream for this. Pain was tolerable a 4 , much less so than I thought it would be. HOwever, the aftermath is what hurt most, Massaging my sore swollen... READ MORE

I am a 72 year old woman and it was suggested by my dermatologist that I try Sculptra for the lines on my chin and the hollows of my cheeks. I had three injections over four months.It was very discouraging because I did not see any results. I thought I had just thrown $2400 down the drain. It... READ MORE

I am over much older than 28! My skin was losing elasticity and hollowing was beginning to happen. Dr. Shino Bay's technique of placing the product underneath the muscle was ingenious! I could not believe that I look 28 again after leaving his office :) it was the best day of my life and now... READ MORE

Must list price by vial. I have had 2 sessions. 2 vials per session. so $500 per vial. Supposed to go one more time may be 1 or 2 more vials. I have never had a treatment like this before. No botox etc. Found it to be quite painful but you can get through it. I bruised alot. More the first time.... READ MORE

I had sculptra injected 6 weeks ago and in my 5 week i noticed my face filling out nicely,But now in my 6 week my face has lost all the collagen that sculptra created and my cheeks are back like they were in my 1 week. I dont understand i thought once your bodie started creating collagen you... READ MORE

Received three treatments with no issues at all. I lost weight and as a result fullness in my cheeks. Additionally I use Vivite products by allergan and a peel every couple months.   I chose to get sculpura as I lost fullness in my cheeks due to weight loss. I received a... READ MORE

I have tried fillers and botox/dysport and good results with both. I am 57 and not ready for a face lift, so I tried Sculptra. I have had only one treatment, but I definitely think that I look better. I did freak out after having the treatment, after reading others experiences, but my experience... READ MORE

I got Sculptra Nov 2011, I had immediate lumps, that I was told would go down, then I got a parotid gland infection one month later. No lumps went down, but swelling did. I now have many lumps coming up and they are tender and you can see them in certain light, but most people dont see them. THe... READ MORE

I just finished my second Sculptra session. About eight weeks after my first treatment I did notice a difference. I had it injected primarily in my temple region...but also cheeks and jawline. My face feels firmer...not like it's hanging off my face. Al tho I have had botox and Juvederm as... READ MORE

Pros: -My very dark purple/black Dark Circles and hollows are gone! I am so happy! :)Cons:- Injections were very painful - Swelling/bruising was so bad I missed a week of work for each session attended (3 sessions total over 4 months) - Makeup does not cover the bruising/swelling - Expensive - I...

For a quick touch up under my eyes for Bags supposedly a better otion than surgery, It has been over 2 years and my Eyes look like crap. I had to have surgery to remove the sculptra because it hardened and turned into lumpy nodules. My eyes uses to be my best feature and now my worst. I am a... READ MORE

Cons - none really, except some swelling that takes a good 5 or so days to go down. No one noticed until I pointed it out, but I was aware of it and wouldn't do it less than a week before I had to do anything special. Pros - it's so subtle no one notices except you. It also last much... READ MORE

I wish I would have seen this website prior to getting my Sculptra injections. I had injections done under both eyes. First in November 2007 and again in January 2008. After the first injection, I developed a pea sized lump under my left eye. My dermatologist told me it would go away. I had the... READ MORE

As to pain, it for sure hurt. I've had botox, Ultra Light Therapy, Microdermabrasion, and 3 root canals with crowns, and this hurt the most! But next time, I'll insist on a Lortab before the treatment, if my doctor will do it. I will see. If not, I'll still endure it. I've... READ MORE

{edited} {by Britt user asked to fix misspellings} Like most women who are at the crux of baby boomer land where you start to disappear (meaning no one notices you much anymore), I wasn’t ready to give up and get in the rocker. My appearance was always something I sort of relied... READ MORE

No one ever informs you of the true cost or pain involved. Many shots in my temple, chin & nose areas. Thought I was having a root canal and the shots became so painful I tried to get out of my chair but they would not let me. I said to stop: "it is too painful", but the doctor just said, "I...

I am 43 and I looked tired, sculptra gave me volume in the right place,now I look ealthy and more rested , it looks very naturale and is perfectly done! READ MORE

My dr. used Scultra to add fulless to the volume loss I had from aging. I have used other fillers as well as Botox and this was a great xcombination as it works over the course of time, promoting collagen. It has made a big difference. The important thing to remeber is that it is not just the... READ MORE

My cosmetic dermatologist is a superb injector. She is the best of the best. I have no choice but to blame the product itself, Sculptra, for the lump that formed under my left eye. According to the PI sheet, about 1 in 5 patients develop lumps. I thought I could beat those odds by having a good... READ MORE

I did the procedure because i had hollowness under my eyes and i looked tired all the time when i went to the dr i suggest him restylane but he told me he prefered sculptra to be inyected he talked to me it was a better product so he convinced me to do it ...its been 10 days of this and it was...
