I had Sculptra done and paid over 1,000 dollars. I was injected and that was the only appointment I was given. Is this it?

Sculptra® usually takes more than a single session.

The reason this is the case with Sculptra is that the product is a biostimulator, causing your body to stimulate the production of it's own collagen in response to the injections. It does not "fill" right away, rather the improvement is seen gradually over time and that's why 3 different visits are required. The product normally lasts another 2 years after the first three visits and yearly maintenance injections are required.
It sounds like your injector did not do a very good job of explaining how the product works and the expectations for the follow on appointments.
