Hylaform and Restylane are both fairly new dermal fillers, with both
being FDA-approved for the treatment of wrinkles. Hylaform is derived
from a highly purified form of hyaluronic acid which is a naturally
occuring substance found in human skin. Restylane is derived from
a biodegradable non-animal stabilized hyaluronic acid (NASHA).
Both of these dermal fillers have their advantages and disadvantages
when compared, so it is best to speak with your doctor/surgeon about
the specifics of each and how they may affect you individually before
you make choose. For example, some doctors suggest that patients use
Hylaform where they may have concerns about redness or swelling immediately
following the procedure. According to one doctor, "If you need
a non-inflammatory HA filler, I would recommend Hylaform, as it produces
very little inflammation. It is also useful in the tips where inflammation
and lumpiness can be a problem."
Notably also, some officials have described Hylaform as a filler that
is more suited to ease-of-use when compared to other similar options,
including competitors such as Restylane.
