Had Sculptra 6 weeks ago. Changes are very gradual and subtle but definitely an improvement. Bags under eyes seem less visible and jowels seem to be less. My face still looks the same, only slightly better :o)
The injections themselves don't really hurt - no worse than the Botox injections to get rid of crow's feet. For a few days after treatment, cheekbones feel as if they're bruised but I was given a cream from my Doctor to limit bruising. The Doctor also told me to massage as much as possible - about 5 minutes five time a day for the first 3-4 days and then continue to do it less often afterwards. He said to massage around the ortbital eye area in particular. I followed his advice to the letter and I haven't had any lumps whatsoever, thankfully
For the full effect, I need to wait another 6-8weeks or so but so far, so good.
