My doctor said I would benefit from using Sculptra for the little criss cross wrinkles and bagging under my eyes. I haven't read much on Sculptra being used in this area. She tried Botox, but it doesn't really do too much in that area. I just turned 44 years old and am fair-skinned. I am also concerned about excessive bruising in that area. Any advise for using Sculptra on this area for eye bags and wrinkles? Thanks!
Sculptra Under Eyes

Sculptra can reduce the appearance of eyelid hollows
Sculptra can actually reduce the hollows under your eyes. It is important to realize that sculptra achieves this effect indirectly in a manner very different from other fillers. Where fillers such as restylane or juvederm. Can be injected above or at the inferior orbital rim (the lower rim of your eyelids)to improve the tear trough area, sculptra should not be injected above or right at the margin of inferior orbital rim. I inject sculptra just under the inferior orbital rim over the upper cheek bone to reduce the size of the lower eyelid hollow. This technique can be very effective in reducing the appoearance of sunken eyes.
Sculptra injection to be avoided along under eyes
There have been reports of nodularity when Sculptra injection is performed along lower eyelids and is to be avoided. Experienced physician Sculptra injectors will not go above the orbital rim of the eye sockets. On the other hand, it may be okay to massage the recently injected Sculptra along the upper cheeks close to the orbital rim immediately after the Sculptra injection to conservatively achieve some volume restoration in the area.
Do not use Sculptra under eyes.
Hi! Sculptra was designed to fill in hollow cheeks, requires more than one treatment, and is irreversible (if you get a lump, there is no way to dissolve it).
1) Lower eyelid bags can be improved with injections, depending on your anatomy. The best filler for this area (also the one we have the most experience with) is Restylane, injected DEEPLY. It lasts a long time in this area (over 9 months), and it is potentially reversible if necessary.
2) The very fine lower eyelid criss cross lines don't respond well to fillers of any kind. For these, you need some combination of Botox, resurfacing with a dual modality erbium laser, or lid surgery.

My suggesions include:
Use a good eye cream, preferably one with retinol
Wear sunglasses to prevent further sun damage to this delicate skin
Consider an energy-based procedure to tighten the skin (eg Ultherapy, radiofrequency)
An HA filler in the tear trough and cheek can help to "camouflage" the bag

Sculptra Under Eyes
Thank you for your question. There are many fillers can be use for under the eyes (tear trough) area. I would recommend being treated under the supervision of a Board Certified Dermatologist or Plastic Surgeon for safest and best treatment option. I hope this helps.
Sculptra is wonderful, but not under the eyes
Sculptra is a collagen (read: volume) stimulator. It is a wonderful product and one of my favorites. But it is not recommended for use in the thin under eye area. It's not really a good treatment for fine wrinkles at all. It is ideal for stimulating collagen production in the hollow areas of the face and can improve the quality of the skin in the cheeks when placed with the right technique. It's an ideal way to restore balance to the aging face. Be sure to see a physician who routinely uses a lot of Sculptra. This is a product where experience is important.
