Sculptra and auto immune disease

Autoimmune disease and Sculptra
Sculptra is a wonderful product and was used for years in immunocompromised patients. Sculptra's initial clearance was solely in these patients. I would check with your endocrinologist to see if he believes you would be cleared. Although there is no noted contraindication, it might be safer to use a hyaluronic acid in your case. Please find an experienced dermatologist who has expertise in facial injections for the best cosmetic results.
Sculptra and Graves' diseases
Automminune conditions associated with skin lesions like Lupus, Scleroderma or any Granulematous conditions can be adversely affected by injectable treatments especially with stimulating effects like Sculptra. Graves disease is less likely to be affected by the treatment.
However, you should consult your doctor before committing yourself to any non-essential treatment like cosmetic injections.

Given the gray zone, it is better to stick with other fillers. Especially now with Juvederm Voluma you can have the results last for two years.
