Hi - I'm 42 and decided on Sculptra after have a lot of volume loss in face.
I had 1.5 vials in early Oct and then another 1.5 vials in early Nov. It's now early December and just in the past week I've had a large amount of increase in volume (my temples are too big) and also a small visible nodule develop
More nodules developing from Sculptra
I've had saline flushed through my nodule - but so far it has little effect (it's four days since the procedure) - and now further smaller bumps have come up under the other eye now. Every day something new seems to be happening - very concerning.
More scary Sculptra symptoms

Hi - just to update you on my Sculptra treatment. It is 7 - 8 weeks post my second treatment and I've had more scary side effects - sore, watery eyes, swelling aching joints, fatigue, sore throat, more saliva production than usual. The doctor gave me a course of antibiotics (although said my reaction probably isn't related to Sculptra) - but I still feel unwell. I've also had a lot of growth (too much). My nodule was treated with a steroid injection and it has reduced a little bit.

It's now 2 and a half months since my second Sculptra treatment and I'm pleased to say my lumps have now disappeared. Also much of the swelling has gone. Still not sure it was worth it though - my face looks almost back to how it was pre treatment. I guess everyone had a different reaction.
