Sculptra Dermal Filler

Neaman Medi Spa | Salem, Oregon Also Servicing Surrounding Areas

Neaman Medi Spa is one of the top providers of Sculptra injections throughout Salem and the surrounding areas. Sculptra is unlike hyaluronic acid fillers such as Juvederm and Restylane products, not only in the main ingredient, but also that it doesn’t just add volume, but rather helps your own collagen grow.

Facial fat loss can happen as we age. Losing fat underneath our skin can lead to a sunken cheek look, indentations and even hallows beneath the eyes. Sculptra is designed with this in mind and is a biocompatible, safe, and synthetic material that is injected into the sunken areas in the face to add a more youthful fullness.


Sculptra is one of the longest lasting fillers on the market today. In fact, it is so popular due to the time it lasts but also the fact that it actually stimulates collagen growth. It smoothes wrinkles and folds and is particularly good with the deep folds, such as the “marionette lines” running from the nose to the chin. Sculptra provides a significant, but gradual increase in the skin thickness by helping your body build up its own collagen—thus improving the appearance of the folds and sunken areas.

Are There Side Effects of Sculptra Injections?

While Sculptra is an all-natural collagen booster, there are some potential side effects of which you should be aware:

  • Reactions at the site of injection: This can include redness, bruising, swelling, itching, mild pain, tenderness, and sensitivity to heat. These side effects are common and are usually mild in severity. They may last anywhere from two days to two weeks and should not cause any lasting issues. Often, these effects can be successfully controlled with over-the-counter anti-inflammatory and antihistamine medications.
  • Granulomas: These are small bumps that occur underneath the skin. Within six to 12 months of the injection, a patient may develop these bumps, which may or may not be visible. Sometimes, these small bumps are permanent while in other cases, corticosteroids may clear them up.
  • Infection: This is a rare side effect. Since Sculptra contains a natural collagen booster, infection and other severe complications are extremely unlikely.

Sculptra treatment sessions are generally considered a safe and easy way of smoothing facial wrinkles, and side effects are rare. We’ll be happy to answer any questions you may have about Sculptra injections and can provide advice if you experience any adverse reactions.
