Sculptra for Melting Face - Fairfield, CA

Hi Nina, I'm sorry, I have no idea. She did however go over my cheeks/jowls 2-3 times. On my brow and temples and around my eyes I believe it was once or twice. She did directly under my chin and did that area about 3 times as well. ... READ COMMENT

It is going well. I'm still swollen and a bit bruised but I think it could have been worse! READ COMMENT
