Lipoatrophy

Cosmetic Dermatology

Contour Dermatology has many injectable filler treatments that can help with this condition. Sculptra is the first such treatment approved for this condition known as lipoatrophy, or facial wasting, a sinking of the cheek, eye and temple areas of the face caused by the loss of fat tissue under the skin which can affect HIV patients. The FDA has approved Sculptra to treat this condition. You insurance may cover this treatment if it is caused by HIV.

FDA-approved Sculptra is made from poly-L-lactic acid, a biocompatible, biodegradable synthetic material that’s been used by physicians for decades. “It’s totally safe, and there’s no need to test for allergic reactions before injecting Sculptra,” says Dr. Timothy Jochen, a Board Certified Dermatologist who is in the top 1% of facial filler injectors in the nation. “Actually, poly-L-lactic acid has been used in dissolvable sutures for more than 20 years.”

Side effects are minimal. Patients may experience a little tenderness, redness and some swelling around the site of the injection, but these effects generally subside within a matter of days. In rarer cases, small bumps and larger lumps under the skin in the treated area may appear. Sculptra is not recommended for anyone with a history of keloid formation or hypertrophic scarring.

For different results, Dr Jochen may recommend Botox or Juvederm, depending on your condition.
