The Scultpra page has been updated with more information and personal treatment photos. I first had Sculptra in late 2004 and again in early 2005 as part of a clinical study and used it for cosmetic applications for the cheeks, undereyes and nasolabials.
What Is Sculptra?
Sculptra is poly-l-lactic acid, a cross-linked lactic acid product which is injected into the dermis to trigger collagen production. Sculptra is a semi-permanent product designed to create volume and thicken the skin via natural collagen formation and lasts about 18 months.
Sculptra Aesthetic® is FDA approved for cosmetic applications for the nasolabial folds and for other deep dermal wrinkles. It is also used for cheek volume and along the jaw for augmentation. It should not be used in the lips, and in thin-skinned areas like under the eyes (although I had gotten it there during clinicals).
Sculptra was originally approved only for patients with lipoatrophy, which is the loss of facial fat/volume from medications and disorders such as those for HIV. Lipoatrophy is also known as facial wasting and can cause a gaunt, unhealthy look. However, it was used off-label cosmetically. Now that Sculptra Aesthetic® is FDA approved for cosmetic applications, patients can readily receive injections from their plastic surgeon or dermatologist.
