Sculptra: How soon should (can) painful inflamed lumps be treated? My face is inflamed, heavier and asymmetrical. Ugh. (photos)

Sculptra swelling solutions--prednisone, ibuprofen, Arnkika Forte
Oral diuretics and prednisone can be used for the swelling or consider just ibuprofen. Arnika Forte helps decrease the risk of swelling and bruising. I recommend following up with your Dr. for options. Best, Dr. Emer.
Sculptra pain and swelling early
This is most likely injection related and not Sculptra related. The granulomas associated with Sculptra occurs months later. I would let things settle down. Perhaps a short course of steroids. Sculptra is a safe and long lasting product that has high satisfaction rates.
