Hi V,

Yes you may have Sculptra.  Choose your injector most carefully.  Good luck and be well.

Can Sculptra be used if patient had lichen planus in mouth 3 years ago?

There should be no problem being treated with Sculptra if you had lichen planus in your mouth 3 years ago.  Sculptra would not be injected in the mouth anyway, so the area treated with Sculptra would be in a different location.

Sculptra Injections

Sculptra is a fabulous injection and there should be no contraindication if you had lichen planus in your mouth. Please consult a board certified dermatologist with experience with Sculptra injections.
