Sculptra for Scars?

[attachmentid=6632][attachmentid=6632]

I read that Sculptra is a new filler that can last for ten years!

Does anyone know about this filler? Is it something worth looking into?

Thanks

There is no way that sculptura lasts for 10 years. I had it done twice, and i'm seeing less and less improvement as the time passes.

tricia, how much fo your silicone injections and where abouts are you having them done??

I am going to Dr. Alkek in Dallas tomorrow for a consult about it. I have a strong feeling he will say I am not a candidate though. My insurance actually does show him as a provider so I will only have to pay $15 for the $95 consult fee. I have read from others that he charges around $500 for each session of silicone. He may think I have other problems in my scars I need to deal with first like the chronic redness in some areas. I'll let you know how it goes!

if you get silicon injections..i have heard it will burn your face very bad if then using a laser on it.most docs wont even use a laser if you have any type of silicone in it.

I've never read that but I don't think I'd ever want laser anyway.

Actually, this article uses a combination approach of the silicone and laser:
