What should I expect following the Sculptra® Aesthetic treatment?

- FAQ Sculptra® Aesthetic

Following the procedure, the injection site may feel overly full. Temporary swelling, redness, discoloration, or itching may be experienced at the injection site and usually lasts less than a week. A risk of infection also exists as with any injection procedure.  Placing an icepack over the swollen area may control any swelling.  For 24 hours, you should avoid strenuous exercise, alcohol and sun or heat exposure. You may need 3 to 5 treatments which build upon each other and initially you may not see much response until the second or third treatments.
