Response from Dr. Pierone

There are two agents approved for treatment of HIV-related facial lipoatrophy in the United States.

Sculptra was approved over 5 years ago and here is a link to a website that details the patient assistance program.

The phone number of the program is 866-310-7551.

To find a doctor who injects Sculptra you can search their web site at this link.

Radiesse is the other approved agent for HIV lipoatrophy

Here is a link to information on their patient assistance program.

Here is a link to their web site to find a doctor experienced with Radiesse injections.

If you go to my web site you can download the forms to apply for the patient assistance programs for Sculptra and Radiesse

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