Is Sculptra Ok to Use in Someone Who Has a Tendency to Hypertrophic Scars?
Doctor Answers (3)
It is unusual to have scarring problems from needle injections unless there is an infection or significant hematoma (blood clot) caused at the same time.
Hypertrophic scars from Sculptura injections would be extremely unusual.
I hope this helps.
Sculptra and hypertrophic scar
Sculptra can cause granulomas in some patients. This is not common. If you are a good candidate for Sculptra, you can always test it out in a remote spot to see if you react to it.
