I had Sculptra injected into my face to fill out my cheek bones in Sept. of 2006... 3 1/2 years later i STILL have a huge lump that protrudes out of my right cheek every time I open my mouth.
It was PAINFUL to have it done, EXPENSIVE to have it done, and the results were minimal except for the huge granuloma aka lump on my face I'm now dealing with. My doctor tried to tell me that I had it before the injections. Yeah, right.
Recently I went to a new doctor and tried Radiesse for my "puppet lines" on each side of my mouth. It was NOT at all painful, about 1/3 the cost and worked much better. Stay away from the Sculptra!
