Sculptra Aesthetic Instructions

Sculptra is indicated for correction of shallow to deep nasolabial fold contour deficiencies and other facial wrinkles Contraindications
  • Sculptra should not be used in any person who has hypersensitivity to any of the components of Sculptra (see DEVICE DESCRIPTION).
  • Sculptra should not be used in patients with severe allergies manifested by a history of anaphylaxis or history or presence of multiple severe allergies.
  • Sculptra should not be used in patients with known history of or susceptibility to keloid formation or hypertrophic scarring.
  • Sculptra reconstituted with lidocaine hydrochloride (lidocaine) should not be used in patients with a history of allergies to lidocaine or other amide type local anesthetics.
Pre-Sculptra Instructions
  • DO consider taking over the counter Arnica supplements starting 3-5 days before your treatment as they have been shown to decrease bruising.
  • Do NOT take aspirin, Motrin, ibuprofen, Naproxen, Aleve, Vitamin E, Gingko Biloba, fish oil, St. John’s Wort, garlic pills, or other anti-inflammatory medications for 1-2 weeks if okay with your primary physician. These medications can increase the risk of bruising. For mild pain or headaches Tylenol is preferred.
  • DO inform your nurse or physician if you have a history of medication allergies, history of anaphylaxis, and any other medical problems.
  • The ideal time to schedule this procedure is at LEAST 2 weeks before a big event.
Post-Sculptra Instructions
  • DO massage the treated areas 5 times a day for about 5 minutes for 5 days after treatment.
  • DO hold ice packs on the treated areas gently for about 3-5 minutes a few times that day.
  • Feel free to wear makeup a few hours after.
  • Treated areas may be red, swollen, and bruised for the first 2-7 days.
  • Do NOT get a facial or massage for 2 weeks after your filler procedure.
  • Avoid strenuous workouts and alcohol for 24 hours if possible.
  • If bruising occurs, continue Arnica supplements, DO apply topical Arnica gel, drink fresh pineapple juice, and/or take Bromelain supplements to help bruising resolve faster.
  • Bruising can be covered with makeup. i.e. Dermablend  is an excellent coverup
  • A few days after treatment, you will look as you did before treatment. This is normal, over time, Sculptra will replace lost collagen. Follow-Up Treatment:
  • Follow up treatments should be scheduled about every 4-6 weeks.
  • Sometimes Visible results may not be seen until 2-3 sessions have been completed.
  • Results can last more than two years. We suggest scheduling a 2nd dose 3-4 months after your first injection
