Hi,

Does anyone know what is happening with this product? Are non HIV positive people using this instead of fillers?

Below is a little info.

Thanks

What Is Sculptratm?

Sculptratm, marketed in Europe as New Fill, is an injectable facial filler capable of returning fullness to the face and reducing the appearance of wrinkles and folds. Currently, Sculptratm is FDA approved in the United States for people suffering from lipoatrophy, facial wasting, as a result of HIV. Lipoatrophy is caused by antiretroviral medications taken by HIV sufferers to help combat the disease. Sculptratm is the first injectable treatment to receive FDA approval for such treatment.

Though not yet approved for cosmetic use, physicians can use Sculptratm "off-label" for filling lines and wrinkles. In a release by The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), president Peter B. Fodor stated that "for cosmetic patients, the benefits of Sculptratm in achieving long-lasting restoration of facial volume have yet to be confirmed by clinical trials in the U.S. however, the product is approved in Europe, where physicians have been using it as a wrinkle-filler for five years with reportedly good results."
