Biopsy Study for Sculptra (Poly-L-Lactic Acid)
A Single Group Study for the Characterization of Human Tissue Response to Injectable Poly-L-Lactic Acid (Sculptra) in Healthy Volunteers
The primary objective of this study involves research to evaluate new collagen (the elastic fibers that provide skin with its strength and resilience) formation in the skin following injections of Sculptra (Poly-L-Lactic Acid or PLLA). The secondary objectives of the study are to better understand the human skin responses to Sculptra and to assess the safety of Sculptra injections.
