Sculptra filler based on poly-lactic acid has become known since 1999. At that time, the product was used to restore facial volume of the people who had AIDS. Until 2004, the brand was called NewFill. The method for correction of facial contours with this filler was invented by Alan Zhokke. Thanks to his method, thousands of patients suffering from muscle and skin tissue deficiency were able to feel themselves beautiful and fulfilled again. At present, Sculptra filler is used in aesthetic medicine. The product is manufactured by the French company Sanofi. Sculptra filler is very popular and Dr. Manrique has worked with it since early 2000. It is used in more than 20 countries worldwide. The filler is made synthetically, the substance does not contain components of animal origin, that is why the organism does not give a negative immune response and the correction is carried out without complications. The correction product acts in two stages:
- At first, wrinkles are filled in and there are no volume of physical presence of the gel;
- then the natural process of the developing of own collagen is started, which maintains youth and elasticity of the skin.
