Hylaform is a dermal filler that contains hyaluronic acid, a natural substance in the body. According to industry reports, Hylaform uses avian material to simulate human hyaluronic acid. The Hylaform substance is administered by qualified dermatology specialists who inject it under the patient's skin.
Conditions that Hylaform Treats
Primary uses of Hylaform involve wrinkles and lines on the face, usually in the nasolabial region between the nose and lips. This dermal filler can also be used in other areas of the lower face. When injected, it works similar to hyaluronic acid to help cause firmness by sealing moisture under the skin, as well as by interacting with an element called collagen that provides a firmer look for the skin (and a more youthful appearance in the patient's face).
Other Uses of Hylaform
Hylaform is also used for a few different types of procedures, usually in the facial area.
- Lip Injections - Some doctors use Hylaform to plump up the lips of patients. This can be done in various amounts, from a moderate to an extreme lip augmentation.
- Eye Folds – Hylaform is also commonly used on folds or bags around the eyes, to firm and tighten the skin underneath the eye.
- Other Areas of the Body – Although Hylaform is primarily used for facial conditions, it can also be used in areas of the body where loose skin needs tightening.
Although side effects have been relatively rarely reported with Hylaform, no cosmetic dermatology procedure is entirely risk-free. Talk to doctors about any avian allergies or possible drug interactions before signing up for a Hylaform procedure.
