Sculptra Aftercare Instructions


  • Do NOT take aspirin, Motrin, ibuprofen, Naproxen, Aleve, Vitamin E, Gingko Biloba, fish oil, St. John’s Wort, garlic pills, or other anti-inflammatory medications for 1-2 weeks if okay with your primary physician. These medications can increase the risk of bruising. For mild pain or headaches Tylenol is preferred.
  • DO consider taking over the counter Amica supplements (available at The Derm Institute, most supplement stores, Whole Foods, etc) starting 3-5 days before your treatment as they have been shown to decrease bruising.
  • DO inform your nurse or physician if you have a history of medication allergies, history of anaphylaxis, and any other medical problems.
  • The ideal time to schedule this procedure is at LEAST 2 weeks before a big event.

DO massage the treated areas 5 times a day for about 5 minutes for 5 days after treatment.

Feel free to wear makeup a few hours after.

Treated areas may be red, swollen, and bruised for the first 2-7 days.

Do NOT get a facial or massage for 2 weeks after your filler procedure.

Avoid strenuous workouts and alcohol for 24 hours if possible.

If bruising occurs, continue Amica supplements, DO apply topical Amica gel, drink fresh pineapple juice, and/or take Bromelain supplements to help bruising resolve faster.

Bruising can be covered with makeup. i.e. Dermablend (CVS or Macy’s} or Colorescience Corrective Palette.
