Now the Waiting Game - Billings, MT

I chose to do Sculptra because I have always been very "on top" of looking my best, now that I am older the sagging in my cheeks and chin are making me hate the way I look. I am in excellent shape and only my face is a great disappointment to me. I would have gone for a face lift but the 3 week down time is a impossibility in my life so after much research I chose Sculptra. My only real concern is if it will give me results I can be content with. Yesterday I had my first treatment, they applied a numbing cream 30 minutes before. I must say it was still very uncomfortable. Much worse than a root canal or crown. So be prepared for some pain. I had no bruising and some swelling, several small red needle marks, and slightly tender when I massage. I read some comments about nodule formation around the eyes, my doctor did inject directly below the eye socket area or in the high cheek bone area, I asked about nodule formation in those areas and he said they happen if the Sculptra is not injected deep enough into the dermis. I have a second treatment scheduled in 6 weeks, he said i might be a candidate for 3 treatments however most of his patients are satisfied with 2. So now the waiting game begins, I think this is the hardest part!

who was your dr?

Two weeks out, more swelling has gone down, losing some of my fuller younger look but still better than before the treatment. Bruising completely gone! Hoping I am one of those that start to see some results from the Sculptra at three weeks out.

Glad things are going well overall - hoping you continue to see good changes!!
