What to Expect
Following your appointment, you may experience mild or moderate swelling, redness, bruising, or tenderness at the injection areas that should resolve on its own in several days. To encourage healing, you may apply a cold compress to the injected areas. You should limit UV exposure after your appointment and always use sunscreen. Many patients will notice clear improvements immediately following their treatment with final results seen after a few months, when the increased collagen production improves the health of the complexion. If Sculptra is performed in a series over 3 – 4 months, a patient's results may be visible for as long as two years.
