Swelling and firmness after Sculptra
Since the Sculptra is the new factor, this is most likely the problem. I would discuss with your doctor. This can represent an infection from your sinuses. It's possible you need antibiotics or injections to soften this.
The Softening Solution--Lasers, Venus Legacy
