I was numbed up by cream and then waited on hour. I hate pain and usually use a dental block for restalyne in that area.-but only need numbing cream for this. Pain was tolerable a 4 , much less so than I thought it would be. HOwever, the aftermath is what hurt most, Massaging my sore swollen face five times a day was miserable and I broke down and took pain pills...The massaging would leave my face bright red for hours also-not a good look at work. I hope it goes well and that I keep up my end of bargain, Will update as I go along..FYI I am 51 and holding,,or trying to!!

It has been roughly two months since the initial procedure and 1 month since the secondary follow up. I have to say that I am not noticing much difference. I think maybe it needs more time, but as of today there is not much to cheer about. The second procedure was similar to the first except I did not have the soreness afterward and was able to massage face much more easily. I will wait one month and post pictures. I was hoping for something more dramatic I guess. Not disappointed, but not impressed either.

Today is march 10. So about 3 months out and I am noticing a difference. Subtle, but I can see a fullness that was not present in November. This is not a huge difference, but it is one I notice and even my husband noticed. Friends have said to me ( who do not know backstory), " have you changed your makeup?you look good.". This may or may not be all the change I get, and if it is, I think money would be better spent on Restalyne Volume' or just go all out and get a fat transfer. I will keep updating as time goes on. If I get a little more volume I will be pleased, but at $1000 a vial ( I had 2) I think bang for the buck may lie elsewhere . will add photo later today..IPAD giving mr difficulties....To be continued....

*10 months since first done

CLose up-you can see there is filling in cheek area..Lighting is good for this photo-I don't look so glamorous usually LOL..

AUG (11 months out)

I have only done 2 vials and will stay at that. I plan on waiting 18 months before doing more Sculptra as I want to ensure my results are stable and everything is okay.

Referred to me by a plastic surgeon and she is the best. Knows facial structure, trains others in injections, understands facial symmetry. Love the Dr. SHe is a nationally trainer for Sculptra, so my fears were allayed by her experience.
