Hylaform is used to treat moderate to severe facial folds and wrinkles. It is also known as Hylan-B-gel. It is a dermal filler made from an extremely purified variety of Hyaluronic Acid. Hylaform is administered as an injectable wrinkle filler which can disguise the effects of aging. By adding volume to the skin tissues, Hylaform makes the skin smoother. However, since the effect lasts for approximately 12 weeks, “touch-up” treatments may be needed after the initial treatment. Since Hylaform can cause side effects like redness, swelling, bruises, and raised bumps, it’s advisable to buy Hylaform only if a dermatologist or cosmetic specialist recommends it.
This medicine is available in the form of Hylan-B-gel. Made of a highly purified variety of Hyaluronic Acid derived from the combs of roosters that have been specially bred, Hylan-B-gel mimics the effects of natural Hyaluronic Acid. This injectable wrinkle treatment can offer instant solutions for facial wrinkles, lines, and contouring.
Listed below are some of the prominent advantages of using this Hyaluronic Acid dermal filler:
Hylaform is injected just below the patient’s skin to replace the hyaluronan support layers and collagen, which have undergone deterioration due to age and other factors. When the drug is administered, Hylaform ‘raises’ skin depressions, thus rectifying folds and wrinkles. Hylaform provides immediate results, giving a youthful look to the patient’s appearance. The effect typically lasts for about three to six months, after which repeat treatments may be needed to retain the smoothing effect.
Over time, Hylaform gradually breaks down and is absorbed naturally by the patient’s body. Since its natural origins act as a key to eliminate the risk of allergic reactions, patients with a history of allergic reactions to other filler products can, in most cases, safely buy Hylaform for use.
Hylaform should not be prescribed for patients who are hypersensitive to avian proteins. It should not be injected into the tendons, bones, muscles or ligaments. Injecting Hylaform into blood vessels should be avoided as it may clog the vessels, thus restricting blood flow and killing tissue. This drug is meant for facial lines and other skin corrections, and should never be used for breast augmentation.
Hylaform does not cause any severe side effects, but a few patients may experience redness, swelling, bruising, tenderness, pain, and skin nodules around the treated area. Most of these symptoms will disappear completely within a few hours/days after the treatment, but in case they persist, patients should consult their dermatologist immediately.
