It often isn’t possible to eliminate wrinkles immediately; you must either wait for skin test results or go through a surgical recovery period.

But that has changed with Hylaform viscoelastic gel. Hylaform viscoelastic gel is made from a naturally-occurring material that provides support and cushioning within the skin. The treatment restores smoothness by replacing this material (called hyaluronan) which has deteriorated and been lost with age.

Because it is similar to your naturally-occurring hyaluronan, there is no need to have a skin test before treatment. Hylaform viscoelastic gel “fills” and smoothes facial lines Having a Hylaform gel treatment is not like cosmetic surgery or laser resurfacing. The procedure is quick and simple; a treatment may take as little as 30 minutes.

With Hylaform gel, the results are not only immediate, there is little or no recovery time. Many patients report that the treatment is quite comfortable. Others notice some discomfort during treatment which ordinarily quickly resolves.

Hylaform gel is introduced just under the skin’s surface through a very fine needle. It is injected at intervals along the line until the right amount of correction has been achieved. The treated area is then massaged gently to smooth the surface. Hylaform gel can be used to “fill” and smooth out smile lines, crows’ feet, frown lines, worry lines, acne scars, small lines around the lips and some other facial lines. Hylaform gel can also be used to treat the border of the lips. This can add definition to the lip border for those who desire a fuller look.

Because Hylaform gel is similar to the components of your own skin, it will gradually break down and be naturally absorbed by your body. This is one of the advantages of Hylaform gel treatment.

Even if you have sensitive skin, or have had a reaction to a treatment with a different skin product, you may still be able to be treated with Hylaform gel.
