Can Sculptra be used around the eyes?

Can Sculptra be used to treat hollowing around the eyes?

The company that makes it, Sanofi Aventis, does not recommend it’s use around the eye area at this time because visible Sculptra bumps are more likely to occur there.  They occur more commonly there because the skin is thin allowing bumps to show and the underlying muscle (the orbicularis) is strong which causes the product to clump more than other areas.   Dr. I

One of the best investments in your skin is your daily skincare. Why? Because you can prevent many problems with blotchy skin color, lack of glow, texture, some types of acne, and fine lines with good skincare products. You can also correct some of these problems with effective skincare products. Great skincare is often more expensive because quality ingredients are expensive. Some companies spend on research/development which benefits all of us and adds to the cost. Are they worth it? In general - yes!
