Is there any harm in having sculptra used within 3-6 months after filler injections?
It may depend on what kind of filler is present
It may depend on what kind of filler is present, but a doctor with experience injecting Sculptra should be able to determine how much Sculptra is needed in any case.
Tell how much Sculptra is needed
It is OK to use Sculptra after fillers since it is a stimulator of collagen growth. The amount depends upon the result you are seeking. At least 3 sessions are required over a 9 week treatment time in my opinion. But photos could help.

Sculptra and other fillers
It is not uncommon for different fillers to be used at the same time. Sculptra, a volumizer, acts like a seed to "grow" your own collagen as a response to the product injected into the fatty layer under the dermis. Other fillers, such as the hyaluronic acids, Juvederm and Restylane, can be injected immediately above this plane to fill in specific creases. The Sculptra might be placed only in the cheeks and the fillers in the smile folds but the Juvederm and Restylane could be layered on top of the Sculptra, but can be injected at a later date after seeing the improvement from the Sculptra.
