I unfortunately had sculptra on orbital bone 4 years ago with some nodules that formed. After a few years they went down and then had IPL done on my face and the nodules have returned.. What treatments are they for minimizing or removing these? Thanks
Response from Dr. Pierone
Sculptra nodules tend to last about as long as Sculptra lasts 2 to 3 years would be typical. I wonder if some skin tightening from IPL may have made the nodules more noticeable. One of the best treatments for facial filler-related nodules is to inject a filler around the nodules to smooth the area in. This approach generally works to make the nodule less apparent. Sometimes a corticosteroid injection into the nodule may lessen it as well.
I hope this information helps and best of luck!
