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
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.
