Hylaform (hylan-B gel) has been described as one of the best instant solutions for facial lines, wrinkles and contouring. In April 2004, the U.S. Food & Drug Administration approved Hylaform for use as an injectable wrinkle filler for those who seek to disguise the effects of aging. With this approval, it can now be used for the treatment of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds.

Hylaform was the fourth injectable wrinkle treatment to gain FDA approval, following the prior approvals of Restylane, Botox (botulinum toxin) and Collagen. Hylaform does compare favourably with these treatments in a number of areas. For example, unlike Collagen injections, no pre-treatment skin allergy tests are required with Hylaform injections.

What is Hylaform?
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance that is found in human skin and throughout the body. Hylaform is a dermal filler that is made from a highly purified form of hyaluronic acid which mimics the effects of natural hyaluronic acid. This highly purified form of hyaluronic acid actually comes from the combs of specially bred roosters.

Hylaform for beautiful skin?
Normal, healthy skin contains several important components that help to keep it supple and young looking, and one of these is hyaluronic acid. Since hyaluronic acid is a natural sugar that is found in all living cells, it helps to maintain skin volume by attracting and binding over one thousand times its weight in water. As time passes, sunlight the aging process and other factors will cause the hyaluronic acid in your skin to diminish, your skin will then lose volume, and lines and wrinkles appear. With Hylaform (hylan B gel), you can temporarily replace the hyaluronic acid that your skin has lost. When injected just below the surface of the skin, Hylaform adds volume to the skin, helping to smooth unwanted lines and wrinkles.
