How long after filler can you use Sculptra?

Sculptra Post Filler
There is no contraindication of having Sculptra after
instant filler such as perlane or Restylane. In many cases instant filler can
be layered with Sculptra for more projection of the cheeks. Keep in mind
instant fillers generally last 6 to 12 months. In some cases, a patient has
concerns for looking “over filled” in the cheek area. Consult with your doctor
if this is your concern. Sculptra is typically injected
1 to 2 vials per session for the initial treatment. Total number of
vials based on decades of age and amount of volume loss ie. 50 years of age is on
average 4 to 5 vials total with treatments
spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart. After the initial treatment of Sculptra, 1-2
vials every one or two years is recommended for maintenance as needed.

Timing of injecting Sculptra versus Perlane / Lyft
Sculptra is considered a bio-stimulant and while there are volumizing properties to it, it works by stimulation of fibroblasts to form more structural molecules like collagen, elastin and other GAG's (glucosaminoglycans). It works very well at firming the skin.
If it is planned to use both "fillers" at one session, consider injecting them at different sites or different levels of the skin. You may also allow the one of the injected "fillers" to settle for a week or two and inject with the alternate filler thereafter.
Good luck with your plans!
