Hi Lizelle, thank you for the question.
I am not aware of any doctor that offers Sculptra mostly due to the fact that it is not a registered medical product in SA. This is not your only option as hyaluronic acid based fillers (Juvederm, Restylane) and even fat grafting can be used.
Sculptra works by stimulating your own collagen to produce a volumising effect, effects are not immediate (usually results are only seen after 4 to 6 weeks) and 2 to 3 treatments 8 weeks apart may be necessary. In individuals with a normal immune system a higher incidence of granulomas has been reported.
