Certain types of injectable fillers are proving to be an effective short-term solution for getting rid of fine lines and deeper wrinkles. Some of today’s leading fillers include Botox, Restylane and Juvederm, but fillers such as Zyderm and Zyplast – that are made with collagen – are also options for those who are looking for more natural results. Both Zyderm and Zyplast facial fillers can be used in several different facial compartments, and can help to fill out finer lines and wrinkles around the eyes, mouth and nose. Also, it is used to enhance the appearance of lips and improve the appeareance of scars. Zyplast is typically used to treat the more pronounced soft tissue defects. Both collagen fillers do provide immediate results. The average cost of Zyderm and Zyplast collagen fillers is approximately $350 to $650 depending on the amount needed.

Pros and Cons of Zyderm and Zyplast Facial Fillers
Both Zyderm and Zyplast collagen fillers are made with purified bovine collagen which has been deemed safe by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. This type of collagen may cause an allergic reaction in some people, so the doctor administering the injectable will take the time to do a patch test before proceeding with treatment. Common side effects of Zyderm and Zyplast collagen fillers include temporary bumps, redness, slight bruising, swelling and tenderness in the treated area. Any redness or swelling from the injection typically dissipates within 24 to 48 hours, so the skin is ready for another treatment.
Zyderm and Zyplast facial fillers may be combined with other skin rejuvenation treatments such as other injectable fillers, skin tightening treatments and anti-aging facials.
Zyderm and Zyplast facial fillers are currently available at many medical spas and cosmetic surgery centers around the United States. A consultation with an anti-aging specialist is required before treatment can begin, and in some cases, a combination of fillers will be needed to achieve the ideal results. Over 1.5 million people have been treated with Zyderm and Zyplast facial fillers, and reported few to no side effects.
