After your injections
Sculptra results appear gradually. You can expect to notice a visible improvement in your appearance due to the increased collagen within a couple of weeks, though your results won’t be considered final until a few months later. In general, you can expect your reduction in facial wrinkles and folds to last for about two years.
Potential side effects
Sculptra is safe and FDA-approved. It is composed of poly-L-lactic acid, which is a synthetic material that has been used safely for years in dissolvable sutures. As such, side effects are rare when Sculptra treatments are done at a respected and experienced facility, like Fenner Plastic Surgery and Med Spa. When they do occur, they are typically mild and may include redness, bruising, tenderness and small lumps beneath the skin.
