I had 3 sculptra treatments on my checks and temples I am experiencing little ice pick looking scars on both sides of my face where I was injected. It has been 11 months since my first one. It just became noticeable 2 months ago and have gotten several more scars since.
Can Sculptra Injections Cause Scarring? From the Needle?

It is highly unlikely that the ice pick scarring was caused by the needles used for Sculptra injections. These needles are not too large. I would recommend that you see your physician for an evaluation.

Needles from Sculptra injections should not cause scarring
The needles used for Sculptra injections are not very large so they are quite unlikely to be the cause of your ice pick scars. I frequently see patients examining their skin more closely after cosmetic treatments and see things that have been there for a long time as being new. Ice pick scars are most commonly seen after an acne pimple or cyst has healed.
