Do’s and Don’ts after Sculptra treatment

To ensure optimal results and a smooth recovery process, it’s essential to follow the appropriate post-treatment care routine. Here are key do’s and don’ts to consider after your Sculptra treatment:


  1. Follow Doctor’s Instructions: Adhere to specific guidelines provided by your aesthetic doctor for optimal results.
  2. Massage Treated Area: 5 minutes, 5 times per day for 5 days after treatment.
  3. Stay Hydrated: Drinking plenty of water aids in skin hydration and the healing process.
  4. Use Gentle Skincare Products: Opt for gentle, non-irritating skincare products to avoid any potential irritation.
  5. Sun Protection: Wear sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher to shield from harmful UV rays.
  6. Apply Cold Compresses: Reduce swelling and discomfort by applying cold compress to treated areas.
  7. Maintain Healthy Lifestyle: Eat a balanced diet and get adequate rest to support natural healing.
  8. Attend Follow-Up Appointments: Keep scheduled appointments to monitor progress and address concerns.


  1. Avoid Strenuous Activities: Refrain from rigorous exercise and heavy lifting for the first 24-48 hours post-treatment.
  2. Avoid Saunas and Hot Tubs: Heat can increase swelling so avoid it for at least 48 hours after treatment.
  3. Skip Harsh Skincare Treatments: Avoid harsh exfoliants and chemical peels for at least one week.
  4. Refrain from Alcohol and Smoking: This is to avoid risk of complications after treatment.
