Response from Dr. Pierone

There is a patient assistance program for Sculptra sponsored by Dermik, the company that produces the product. They may be reached at 866-268-7326. For persons with an income under $40,000 per year, the product is available free, and there is a sliding scale charge from $40,000 to $80,000. This does not include the fee to the physician for injection of the product, and this charge can vary quite a bit.

Here is the web site for the Radiesse patient assistance program. The maker of Radiesse, Bioform, will provide deeply discounted Radiesse syringes for patients with an income under $40,000 per year and sliding scale discounts for persons with income from $40,000 to $80,000 per year.

I hope that this information helps and best of luck to you!
