Hi!I've been here for a while and posted several questions, I hope I can get suggestions and also help people suffer from Sculptra pain in future.I'm 5 months post Sculptra , 1 vial has been injected only but my natural heart shape face changed into square shape. I'm not medically overfilled but definetely changed into another person . The injector gave me several 4% kenalog shots, it helped but the volume grew back in 2 weeks. The swelling , sorenss come and go , I have some lumps , both hard and soft. Everytime I feel cheek pain or jaw pain, more volume shows next morning. I've visited many dermatologists and plastic surgeron, none of them wanted to help me except let me wait 2 or more years. However, most doctors here answered my questions suggested kenalog shot in multiple treatments, 5FU or other precedures . I'm only 29 yrs old, I've just got engaged and I'm planning to have my wedding this year, but Sculptra ruins all of that I really can't postpone my wedding to 2 yrs later. I've found an article that a person use 15% kenalog to treat her overfilled volume. YES, she's got mild hyperpigmentation and briusing, but all her volume disappeared. I definitely think hyperpigementation, briusing and skin atrophy would be much more better than stay with a puffy face , no self-esteem,severe depression and anxiety, long term insomnia and even suicide detency(I have that every morning I look at the mirror, really) !But the problem is that it's really hard for me to find a doctor really want to listen to my concern, two year is nothing for a doctor. Should I continue looking for a helpful expert? or I need to go to immune physician to stay with a drug that control the sculptra immune response? Please advise
