Afraid of side effects Sculptra

Recently, I've had subcision with sculptra once. The treatment was not in my own country since I went to a scar specialist. The idea was to do subcision with HA filler, but specialist told me Sculptra is now a days preferred over filler for scarring in some cases. I didn't had enough time to think about it and so I went with the Sculptra. 

 

But now... I regret it. I read some horror stories and I'm afraid I might get those side effects as well. Also, people report lumps even 4 years after injections... I thought the Sculptra was gone in about 3 years..  

So yeah, I'm a bit anxious right now.

What horror stories? When did you hear about them? I read about one woman but that's it.

I think that the collagen sculptra creates remains and binds to existing collagen, therby acting as your regular collage and breaking down accordingly. Now, an over stimulation of such is a possible side effect if too much of it is placed. Therefore going to an experienced Dr is your best bet. The actual Sculptra only last a couple of years in the body. Essentially, it's up to your body to see how it will react to the foreign stimulator. 

If I'm wrong, please someone say so.
