Fillers

Collagen and other materials are used to improve fine wrinkles and to augment facial features.

Zydrem and Zyplast have been extensively used in the past. Cosmodrem and Cosmoplast are the new human collagen that are recently introduced.

Artecoll is made by a combination of methylmethacrylate and collagen. This injectable filler lasts much longer than either Collagen or Restylane; however this product is more useful for deeper folds than fine lines in the face.

Fat Injections Fat can be removed from the same person (autologous fat) and injected to fill wrinkles, lines and to augment facial features. Processed fat, by carefully removing fat cells lasts longer, but not permanently. Although it involves a minor surgical procedure to procure fat, largest quantities can be obtained to fill defects and to augment.
