Sculptra is injected deep in to the tissue and promotes growth of new collagen.  There should be no contraindication using Sculptra with sensitive skin.

Sculptra is safe for sensitive skin

Sculptra is very well tolerated. It is placed deep to the skin, and should not have any negative effect on the skin.

Sculptra Safety

Sculptra is a long lasting soft tissue injectable that triggers the body to produce its own collagen to fill lines and wrinkles and restore facial volume. It is a synthetic substance, used commonly in dissolvable stitches, and has been used safely for soft tissue injection  in thousands of patients. Typical treatment consists of 3 sessions over several months, and are excellent for younger patients that feel that they are looking hollow, and older patients that would like to regain the voluptuousness of youth.

Sculptra and sensitive skin

There are no restrictions with Sculptra if the patient has sensitive skin. In general, Sculptra is injected deep into the tissue and promotes growth of new collagen.  Any sensitivity may occur with a topical treatment before or after the injection. Thank you and best of luck!

Sculptra safe for sensitive skin

Yes, sculptra is safe for patients with sensitive skin.  We have treated patients with sensitive skin and the patients have not had any problems related to their skin being sensitive.  When the patients massage their skin after treatment we have them use a cream that is free of perfumes and dyes.
