Thanks for your question. Patient may experience bruising and/or swelling after filler treatment. Continue icing and gently massaging the area.
Options for post Sculptra swelling
If you are experiencing swelling after Sculptra, I would suggest SwellX tablets, massage, and Plato's Bruise Balm.
Best Treatment for Swelling After Sculptra Injections
Most patients look very good and presentable after Sculptra injections. In your case, if you have two "balloons" for cheeks then you may have had some deep bleeding. Best to follow up with your injecting physician. Bromolene, a pineapple extract, helps to decrease swelling. Good luck and be well.
Sculptra injections and down time
Sculptra is a fabulous injection but with any injection you may have some swelling or bruising associated with it. Generally this should resolve quickly. Avoid Advil, or Ibuprofen as this will cause more bruising. Continue ice and gentle massage to the area. Best, Dr. Green
Sculptra is not a no downtime procedure, you get swollen and bruised if you do not use cannula injections. I suggest you see an expert, use oral diuretics and prednisone if the swelling is really bad or consider just ibuprofen. Arnika Forte helps decrease the risk of swelling and bruising. Best, Dr. Emer.
Sometimes a medicine such as prednisone can be given after filler injections for a day or two to reduce swelling. You should call the office where you had the injections done to discuss your concerns and be evaluated in person if needed.
