How well do Sculptra injections work on sunken cheeks?
We use Sculptra frequently to treat sunken cheeks. Our patients like the gradual and natural and long-lasting results (2 1/2 years).
When Sculptra is placed correctly in the cheek there is a very low incidence of nodules - and almost all aren't noticeable enough to warrant a treatment to decrease the nodule.
Sculptra is one of our favorite treatments.

Sculptra does work to fill in sunken cheeks. However, it requires multiple treatments and has a relatively high incidence of nodule formation. We prefer to use a filler such as Radiesse, Juvederm, or Voluma. These work immediately, do not require multiple treatments, and have a lower risk profile.
