I am an Aesthetic Nurse in the Uk and I,ve done 100s if not a couple of 1000 Sculptra over the last 9 yrs and I,ve honestly never seen any problem. I love Sculptra.
These might be some helpful Q&A's for you to read:

Hard Bumps After Sculptra on Forehead
How can you know that these are "harmless lumps of collagen"? That is utter nonesense. I have biopsy results showing granulomas. A foreign body granuloma is a consequence of an immune response. The result of a cascade of biochemical messages that go from the bone marrow to the connective tissue and back again. You have no idea what you are talking about. These granulomas get as large as marbles and are often visible. Sculptra has caused systemic disease, pain and disfigurement in thousands of people. Check the FDA Maude database for adverse events reported from physicians and patients who have suffered from this medical device that persists for many years with adverse reactions rearing their ugly heads 3 years after implantation. Don't risk it. Get the safe Restylane and go a couple times a year if needed. Better safe then sorry, sick and disfigured.
Sculptra caused chronic granulomatous inflammation and unsightly nodules still there 3 years later. the only doctor who speaks honestly about the product is Dr. Arnold Klein. Sculptra is unpredictable even in "the best" hands, let alone all of the regular plastic surgeons and derms who think they are the best and can not be bothered to read the literature. Any doctor that uses sculptra is not thinking about the welfare of their patient. Drs on the realself do not even know how long it lasts. s
Some say 2 years but that is not true, so again they do not even bother to read the literature about this polyester that stays in the body possibly forever.
lumps are visible under my eyes after 2 months of injections!!!
