Cosmetic Use of Sculptra Now FDA Approved

Growing options for facial shaping and rejuvenation

(Vocus) August 12, 2009 -- Sculptra, a poly-L-lactic acid filler previously approved for loss of facial fat in HIV positive individuals, is now approved for cosmetic use, to add volume and fullness to facial features and contours.
