Fill it up with Hylaform

Recently, the FDA approved, Hylaform, the latest injectable filler to treat facial lines. Since the inception of collagen for dermatological use, the field of injectable fillers has been one of the most exciting and rapidly expanding areas of the skin care industry. Until now, the latest additions to fill in lines and enhancing lips have been Restylane, Cosmoderm and Cosmoplast.

Hylaform, a clear gel made of hyaluronic acid, has long been used overseas for cosmetic purposes and has been shown to last for 12 weeks. Like the new collection of fillers, Hylaform does not require a pre-treatment skin test, allowing patients to receive injections on the spot and return to work with minimal downtime.

According to Dr. Brad Katchen, founder of SkinCareLab, "Hylaform, is similar in concept to Restylane, which is also made of hyaluronic acid, but due to its formulation, there is reason to believe that it might be less irritating, with less inflammation. This makes it more acceptable to the busy New Yorker who is always on the go.”

Because there are many options, no one treatment is perfect for everyone. For more information, contact Dr. Bradford Katchen's office at 212.334.1155.
