Sculpting medications

Sep 25, 2005

I would like to know about the new injection medicines that are used for filling in areas around your face and are there any financial programs to help pay for the service.

Response from Dr. Young

Sculptra is the only filler approved by the US FDA for the treatment of HIV-associated lipoatrophy. Certainly the topic for discussion, but most insurance companies and ADAPs don't reimburse for its use. In the past the manufacturer (Dermik) had patient assistance programs. You might contact them for additional information. BY
