Facial after sculptra

Jil, There should be no problem with getting a facial after sculptra. We have patients massage their sculptra five times a day for five minutes for five days. This is not a "no touch" procedurre. After that there is no other special treatment  needed and a facial certainly should not hurt.

Facials can be done even weeks after Sculptra

There should be no negative interaction with the Sculptra you had done two months ago by having a facial now. The Sculptra will not migrate because of external manipulation from the facial, nor will steam affect it at the depth it is placed.
