Sculptra issue almost 2 years on

Postby lisaj99 » Wed Mar 07, 2018 7:28 am

I had sculptra twice almost 2 years ago and the results were modest but okay. I haven't had them again.
I'm almost 2 years in since then and over the last few weeks I have granulomas coming in the areas she focussed the sculptra on. Plus my face is betting volume like nothing else. It's getting round :(
It's like it's just starting to work and cause issues - how is this possible?
I have five separate lumps that aren't visible from the outside and so much volume in my face it feels weird to smile.
I haven't had any other cosmetics since then aside from botos and not in the affected areas.
Has anyone else had this and should I visit my GP?

It sounds like you might have late onset granuloma formation to poly-L-lactic acid which is what 'Sculptra' is. Granuloma formation is associated with dilution. The higher the dilution, the lower the chances of granuloma formation with this product. Late onset granuloma formation is possible.

Late onset volume increase to the face could be a separate issue, eg. side effects to medications, weight gain..whatever. GP could help relate that with what else is in your medical history.
Please Note: NO PMs please.

Private correspondence with me concerning questions highly specific to your situation is not an extension of my open participation on the boards.
