Sculptra is a popular cosmetic filler that adds volume and reduces wrinkles. While results can last up to 2 years, proper aftercare is essential to maintain optimal results.

What is Sculptra?

Sculptra is a popular non-surgical cosmetic dermal filler that helps improve facial volume, reduce wrinkles and fine lines, and restore skin elasticity. It can help you achieve a younger-looking complexion without invasive surgery or lengthy recovery. The injection contains a substance called poly-L-lactic acid, which helps to stimulate collagen production and restore lost volume changes.

Aftercare Instructions for Sculptra

It is important to follow post-treatment guidelines to maintain the results of your Sculptra injections.


  • Keep the treated area clean and dry. Follow your normal skincare routine using gentle cleansers and moisturizers.
  • Apply an ice pack or cold compress to reduce swelling and discomfort. Do this for 10 minutes at a time, several times a day.
  • Avoid strenuous activities such as working out for the first 24 hours, which can increase swelling. Most people can continue with normal activities after this period.
  • Wear broad-spectrum sunscreen of SPF 30 or higher outdoors for at least four weeks following your treatment.


  • Do not take aspirin or ibuprofen, as these medications can increase bruising and swelling.
  • Do not expose the treated area to direct sunlight for at least four weeks following treatment.
  • Do not use facial peels, exfoliants, or retinoids on the treated area for at least one-month post-treatment.
  • Do not pick, rub, scratch, or massage the area, as this may irritate the skin.

Following these simple post-treatment guidelines ensures that your Sculptra results are long-lasting and look as natural as possible.
