what is most likely the first filler to become fda approved

Feb 9, 2004


Hi! What is most likely to become the first filler to be FDA approved in the United States and when?

Thank you/


Response from Mr. Vergel


Within a year , Artecoll (Artefill in the US) and NewFill (Sculptra in the US) will be approved. We will then need a lot of community pressure to get Medicare, Madicaid, and insurance companies to cover the costs. Also, these companies should set up patient assistance programs. So, be ready...we will need a lot of help to push this forward! I will keep everyone updated at and here at


Nelson, what does it look like?
