Is there downtime after a Sculptra treatment?

Generally, there’s minimal downtime associated with Sculptra treatments. Here’s what you might experience:

  • Common Effects: Temporary redness, swelling, bruising, or tenderness at the injection sites are the most common side effects. These typically subside within a few days.
  • Returning to Normal: Most clients can return to their daily activities and work immediately after treatment.
  • Makeup: You should be able to wear makeup shortly after, but follow your provider’s advice.
  • Massage: Performing the 5-5-5 massage routine, as instructed by your provider, is crucial for optimal results and reducing the risk of bumps.
  • Individual Variation: In rare cases, some individuals may experience more noticeable swelling or bruising. Discuss potential downtime based on your unique situation with your provider.
