Known as New-Fill in some countries, Sculptra® is an injectable dermal filler consisting of poly-L-lactic acid. European physicians have been administering Sculptra® under the name New-Fill since 1999, and in 2004 it was approved by the US Food and Drug Administration for use in the United States. In addition to treating fine lines and wrinkles, Sculptra also helps with creating volume and facial contouring in the treatment of lipoatrophy.
Polylactic acid is Sculptra®’s main ingredient and it has been used in the surgical field for more than 20 years in products such as dissolvable stitches. The synthetic substance replicates a natural substance that occurs in the muscles during periods of exercise. Because Sculptra is a synthetic product, there’s no concern over allergic reactions.
