Sculptra over Reaction? Very Sick With Sculptra For Two Years.

It is getting better, with less swelling, no pain now. I am in to year 3. Does that mean it will go away? Getting very scared reading all the side effects people got from it. I had sculptra reaction, my last treatment with the product was now three years ago. I never got bumps or lumps. I massaged much as directed but got an over reaction last treatment on one side. Can you still get inflammation without bumps or nodules?

Thank you for your question. Sculptra is indicated as a 25 month product.  I doubt you have much product left at the 3 year mark. The rest will fade out over the next 6-8 months.  See a Board Certified Dermatologist or Board Certified Plastic Surgeon to evaluate as this is occurring.  I hope this helps!
