A Sculptra complication – what can I do?
First of all, I am so, so sad that this happened at all. Sculptra can be lovely when it’s done gradually over a period of months and the doctor doing it has a good "aesthetic eye." Clearly, what happened was not what you wanted. To reassure you yes, your face will eventually get back to normal. Here’s the hard part – it’s been six months since the injections and you are now at peak collagen production with it. Now it will SLOWLY start to get better. This process may take about a year altogether. You might be able to speed things up a small amount by GENTLY massaging your face with lotion for about 3 minutes once a day. Don’t over massage it now, it won’t help and could be irritating. If you can go, one of the world’s experts Dr. Danny Vleggar is in Geneva. I would trust whatever he thinks.
Secondly, this a a very difficult time for you because you look in the mirror and don’t feel like yourself. Do you have someone who can help you with this psychological part? Depression is very serious and it’s important to have it treated by a doctor. Please make an appointment tomorrow with your doctor.
Thirdly, ladies and gents – please, please please never rush into any cosmetic treatment. There is no urgency to get any of these cosmetic things done. Take your time to find the right person and never base your decision on price. You want the highest quality practioners that you can possibly find. Here is info on how to find good doctor. I hope this helps. Dr. I
