What are the risks and potential side effects of Sculptra?
Possible side effects include temporary bruising, asymmetry, and the development of nodules under the skin.
These small knots under the skin can occur immediately following injection, usually just as the result of swelling. If they're still there more than a month after treatment, you would need to get in touch with us.
Sculptra side effects also include keloid formation and hypertrophic scarring. Sculptra is not recommended for people with a history of keloids and hypertrophic scarring (which is similarly caused by excess collagen production).
Sculptra® is an FDA-approved injectable that helps gradually replace lost collagen — an underlying cause of facial ageing for results that can last up to two years. It's used to correct shallow to deep facial wrinkles and folds.
