Sculptra Post-Treatment Instructions

  • Please massage the treated area for 5 minutes, 5 times a day, for 5 days following your treatment.
  • Massage allows the Sculptra particles to develop collagen evenly under your skin. The Sculptra will remain in the desired location even with massage, so don’t worry you are massaging it incorrectly.
  • Ice packs may be applied to the treated areas to reduce swelling and decrease tenderness as needed.
  • Expect soreness for up to 2 weeks after the treatment, especially while chewing. This will improve gradually but will resolve completely.
  • Remember that a few days after the treatment you will look just as you did before the treatment. This is because the water that was injected gets absorbed leaving the Sculptra to stimulate collagen growth.
  • Visible results appear gradually over a few months and last 24 months or longer.
  • Schedule your next two Sculptra treatments for 6 weeks and 3 months from now. 
  • As always, contact the office with any questions or concerns.
