Sculptra for Facial Asymmetry
Perhaps Sculptra would be a good option, as well as Voluma or Perlane that would give more immediate results than Sculptra. Also, perhaps having a radiofrequency (RF) skin tightening procedure would give you the results you are looking for. The Venus Legacy, the Ellman Pelleve, the EndyMed 3Deep, or the Alma Accent or VShape can improve the situation as well. Find the right doctor and learn all the options that are out there that will make you feel even better about yourself.
Asymmetry in motion
There could be several things at play here - the side you sleep on and the side you chew on most often in addition to underlying anatomy. A physician would need to see your face in various animation to get a real sense of how to carefully make any changes at all.
A hyaluronic gel would give you an immediate augmentation in the right cheek - plus it's dissolvable so in the event you didn't like the changes, you can make them go away.
Botox or similar can lift a brow.
You seem anxious to change many things, but you are a lovely young woman as you are now. Please make decisions very slowly and carefully. You would not want to discover you acted too quickly and lost your unique looks.

Sculptra for correction of Facial asymmetry
Sculptra is a great choice to build your own collagen in the mid face and chin area. Young patients such as yourself have fabulous results with these treatments. If you want immediate results you can have Voluma injected. The most important aspect is to consult a board certified dermatologist with a great deal of experience in facial injections.
Minor changes are better corrected with HA's
Sculptra for facial asymmetry
You are way too tough on yourself! You present yourself beautifully and have a wonderful smile.
Unlike a dress draped on a perfectly symmetrical hanger, facial asymmetry with its folds and creases (like different hands, shoulders, breasts, hips and feet) are an expected variation of the anatomy. When asymmetries are too different or there are functional problems associated with such asymmetries, Plastic Surgeons offer options to fix the underlying bony "hanger".
There are soft tissue improvements using fillers to improve mild asymmetries and to highlight or blend different aspects of the face but you have a wonderful and youthful face. I do not feel Sculptra would be a filler (collagen stimulator) of first choice for you.
For any further concern, please visit a well experienced and caring Board Certified Plastic Surgeon.
I wish you the best!
