Looking for a safe Sculptra treatment plan in Nashville TN? Sculptra injections add volume to your face and achieve a more youthful looking appearance.

In this blog post we will discuss the process we take when clients come to our Medspa in Nashville for Sculptra injection fillers.  We'll walk you through the process of getting Sculptra injections and provide some tips on how to prepare for your appointment and on going maintenance that will be required.

Choose a Experienced Practitioner

One of those important things to do first before any treatment, is to find a qualified and experienced medical practitioner who has expertise in administering any kind of Sculptra treatment and injections. Go through an initial consultation beforehand to make yourself comfortable with the practitioner and also to go over and discuss your goals and expectations for the treatment and better understand the potential risks and side effects which may occur with the treatment.

Day of Sculptra Treatment

On the day of your appointment, we will first begin to clean the treatment area and may apply a small amount of numbing cream or local anesthesia to help minimize any kind of discomfort during the Sculptra injection process. Sculptra is typically injected with a small needle in several areas of the face, including the cheeks, chin, temples.

The procedure usually takes an hour to complete.

Post Sculptra Treatment

Once we have completed the treatment, you may begin to experience slight redness, swelling or bruising within the treated areas. This is perfectly normal and should subside within a few days. You may apply an ice pack or take over the counter pain medications to help with any discomfort. Try to avoid rubbing or massaging the treated areas after treatment has taken place for at least 24 hours as this will cause the Sculptra to spread unevenly.


To have the best possible results you will need multiple Sculptra injections spaced out over several weeks or months to achieve the optimal look. The number of injections required will of course depend case by case and on the individual goals, volume you want to add to your face.


In summary, Sculptra injections are a safe and effective way to add volume to the face and achieve a more youthful appearance.
