A patient asked 5 years ago
36 yr F. Few acne scars on right cheek. Plastic surgeon used juvederm to fill the scars. Loved the result but only lasted a few months. Asked Doctor about a little juvederm in my cheeks to give the lift of smiling without smiling. Doctor recommended scluptra to give my cheeks a rounded appearance. Based on his previous recommendation I got 1 vial of scluptra injected. Due to acne scar doc injectioned right cheek 2xs and left side 1x. Right side so full couldn’t move side of my face. Very Unhappy

Reverse the effect of Sculptra

 
Unlike many other instant fillers, the effects of Sculptra cannot be reversed (although we can break its lump with steroid injection). However, Sculptra is given over a series of injection over time and unbalanced results can be adjusted and corrected throughout the course of consecutive injections. The best is to do a follow up with your physician or any other cosmetic physician who is highly experienced with Sculptra to adjust it. Hope it helps and good luck!
