Sculptra: Is the volume growth proportion to sculptra injected? Or our body can only grow a certain amount each time

A patient asked 3 years ago
For example, if I injectt 1 vial on single side of temple area each session, will the collagen really going to grow proportionally. Or, it will only grow certain amount of volume regardless how many vials we injected? I am 36 years old, I already 4 sessions, 5 vial total. I do see results but not enough, I am thinking to inject 3 vials each session from now on. But concerned about the body doesn’t response to the extra sculptra and it just goes to waste. Thank you in advance.

Results of Sculptra

 
Hi and thank you for your question! In general, with more Sculptra vials injected we expect to see more pronounced results, but bear in mind that medicine is not an exact science and the way your body respond to Sculptra may vary from time to time. Since Sculptra is a long acting filler and it take time for the body to build collage around it (and this process will continue for quite some time), I suggest that you continue gradually and do not rush to get way too many vials too early. Please give it time and work with your injector to get more injections later on as needed. Also, please remember that since the results of Sculptra emerge gradually and we all look at our face many times every days, it is very common to miss the improvements or think that they have been minimal. The best way to assess the results is by comparing pictures taken over time. I hope it helps and good luck!
