WHAT SIDE EFFECTS ARE THERE & WHAT SHOULD I KNOW BEFORE CONSIDERING IT?
As with any treatment that requires the use of microneedles, there will be some noticeable side effects around the injection site. Please expect the following side effects.
- Swelling & bruising around the injection site,
- Redness, tenderness, or pain.
- Potential for bleeding, bumps, and itchiness.
It is also possible to develop minor skin discoloration and lumps underneath the skin. There is also the risk of infection and serious swelling. Sculptra® is not a good option for patients in Orlando who commonly get acne, rashes, skin sores, or cysts or have a history of keloids or hypertrophic scarring.
