Dermatologist Tests Sculptra’s Efficacy

March 9, 2006

Palm Beach, Florida-based dermatologist Dr. Kenneth Beer is launching a clinical study to test the efficacy of cosmetic filler Sculptra to treat acne and varicella (chicken pox) scars.
According to Dr. Beer, 10 participants between the ages of 18 and 65 will have their acne and varicella (chicken pox) scars injected with the cosmetic filler on a weekly basis for a period of four months.
“Based on its long-term correction of lipoatrophy, we feel it would be reasonable to consider treatment of other indications and determine the effects of Sculptra on acne scars,” said Dr. Beer. More info: (561) 655-9055; www.palmbeachcosmetic.com.
