Congratulations on your Sculptra treatment!

Whehter you treated your face or your body, the Sculptra after-care instructions are the same. To insure the best possible results, please follow these after-care tips:

  • 5-5-5 Rule
    Massage the treated-areas for 5-minutes, 5-times a day, for 5-days after treatment. This “massage” should consist of mid-pressure rubbing all along the injection sites. (These areas might be sore immediately following the treatment, but it is still important to massage the areas anyway.)
  • Ice!
    Within the first 24-hours after your treatment, you should apply an ice-pack, frozen bag of vegetables, or ice wrapped in a towel (try to avoid putting ice directly on your skin) to the treatment areas to help reduce any swelling.
  • Makeup
    If desired, you are welcome to apply makeup a few hours after your Sculptra Aesthetic treatment (as long as no complications are present).
  • Sun Exposure
    Please avoid direct exposure to the sun, tanning, and UV sunlamps until any swelling and redness have dissipated.
  • Worried?
    If you are concerned about any aspect of your treatment, please don’t hesitate to contact us immediately! (It’s what we’re here for!)


Things to Remember After Your Sculptra Treatment

A few days after your treatment, you may notice that you look the same as you did before treatment.

  • Don’t worry! This is normal, and temporary.
  • Sculptra Aesthetic works to gradually replace your lost collagen
  • Visible results appear about 2-weeks after the second treatment.

Your provider will indicate how many treatments they expect you’ll need to acheive your desired results. Please understand that this is an educated estimate, and depending on how your body responds to treatment you may need slightly more or less than initially advised. Our goal is to make you happy, and our providers will give you as realistic expectations as possible.
