How long does it take to recover from Sculptra Filler?
I have a week off from work next month and I plan to get a Sculptra procedure. Is that going to be enough time to recover if I get the procedure completed early in the week?

Recovery from Sculptra should not be more than a day or so. You may experience some swelling and bruising, but in general, it should resolve in a few days. Unlike other fillers, Sculptra usually requires multiple injection sessions 6 weeks apart. Bear that in mind when planning your time off.
If a microcannula is used bruising and swelling should be minimal and only mild discomfort. For bruising I recommend a post injection serum:
