Massage After Sculptra Injections
We recommend massaging 5 times a day, for 5 minutes, for 5 days in a row. It does not matter when you massage your face during the day. As long as you get the 5 times in. It sounds like you are doing a great job and following your practitioner's advice. You will have a great result. Best of luck!
Thank you for your question. I recommend massage 5 times a day for 1-2 minutes. The original recommendations came out years ago when Sculptra was not diluted as much as it is now and when it was reconstituted only a few hours before treatment ( now I reconstitute it 3-7 days before ). The changes in how Sculptra is prepared has decreased the time that I have patients massage. For global facial volume replacement there is nothing that works better in my hands. It looks natural because it is the patient's own collagen.
In my opinion, missing a few times of massage after Sculptra should not affect the results. Most physicians recommend the 5 minutes, 5 times a day for 5 days but there are some who recommend 3 minutes, 3 times a day for 3 days as well.
Hi Meow, it shouldn't make a big difference when you massage, as long as you follow the 5 times a day x 5 minutes x 5 days rule. Sounds like you've been doing that so you're doing great and are well on your way for the best possible Sculptra results.
Sculptra massaging is a strong recommendation. However, missing a time or 2 will not adversely affect your results. Studies show there is less nodules when doing massage. It sounds like you have been very diligent and I don't expect there to be any problems.
