How Effective is Sculptra Laser for Joint Pain?

Sculptra and Joint Pain
Sculptra is not something that is used for joint pain. Perhaps you're thinking about a steroid injection? They can be very effective for joint pain and have less side effects than chronic pain medication. Try talking to an orthopedic surgeon, physical therapist, or primary care doctor to find the best option for your painful joints.
Hope this helps,

Sculptra, Not a Laser, Not for Joint Pain.
I believe you may be thinking of Hyaluronic Acid injections into the joint itself for joint pain done by Orthopaedic Surgeons. Plastic Surgeons inject a type of Hyaluronic Acid, (Restylane, Juvederm) into the face to give volume. Sculptra is also an injectable for the face. It is not a laser. If you are having joint pain, contact your local Board Certified Orthopaedic Surgeon. It may be a good idea to get a couple of opinions before undergoing any procedure.
Sculptra is not a laser
Perhaps you have the name incorrect. Sculptra is not a laser as monetioned in the title to your question.
