Polylactic acid (PLA) belongs to the family of aliphatic polyesters commonly made from ahydroxy acids, which include polyglycolic acid or polymandelic acid, and are considered biodegradable and compostable. Polylactic acid (PLA) is a thermoplastic, high-strength, high-modulus polymer that can be made from annually renewable resources to yield articles for use in either the industrial packaging field or the biocompatible/bioabsorbable medical device market (suture threads, bone fixation screws, devices for drug delivery). It is easily processed on standard plastics equipment to yield molded parts, film, or fibers. The basic building block for PLA is lactic acid (LA) while lactide is the lactone cyclic di-ester derived from lactic acid. Polylactic acid is under investigation in clinical trials for problems of aging, skin aging, facial volume loss, skin laxity, and facial lipoatrophy.
