Sculptra Worked Great but Left Needle Marks

Scultra worked great on my under eye hollows...

Scultra worked great on my under eye hollows.  It lasted almost 3 years.

The only problem was that the needle used during the last procedure  (three total - one month apart) left bruise and needle marks (hyperpigmentation) that did not go away.  I don't know if this was due to the color of my skin.  (golden brown) or for some other reason.   The doctor did use ice and lidocaine before and during the procedure.   The doctor prescribed tri-luma and it helped alot, however 3 years later and I still can see these faint marks.

I'd really like to try sculptra again or another filler but I am afraid of the same marked results.  For a very fair person, this probably would not be an issue.  I will say that I would NOT have sculptra done by anyone other than an experienced doctor.  Right now I am trying to find a doctor that specializes in persons with colored skin.
