Can You Tell Me if Having Facetite After Sculptra Gets Rid of the Poly-L- Lactic Acid?

I have been told that if I have Facetite, it might get rid of the Sculptra that I have had. Has anyone any experience of this please?

Interesting question. I believe the RF and ultrasonic treatment combination could remove some of the poly lactic acid granules, but not sure.

You do not remove Sculptra during a facelift

Maintaining facial shape and enhancing  contours is very important  in facelifting.  Typically you wish to add rather than remove during the anterior portion of a facelift.  (I actually often add Sculptra during a facelift.)
