New Study Reveals Effects of Hylauronic Acid Injectable Fillers

New Study Reveals Effects of Hylauronic Acid Injectable Fillers Many cosmetic surgeons and medical spas offer hyaluronic acid gel-based fillers such as Restylane and Juvederm for filling out wrinkles and lines, and use them for the “liquid facelift” procedure. A new development announced at the American Society of Plastic Surgery annual conference, Plastic Surgery 11 THE Meeting in September 2011 is a solid – not gel – hyaluronic acid filler that is instantly reversible. This filler may offer a more precise correction of wrinkles and lines than gel-based fillers, and is an exciting development in the field of minimally-invasive plastic and cosmetic surgery.

According to Geoffrey Gurtner, MD, ASPS Member Surgeon and lead author of the study, “This novel technology has significant advantages over injecting fillers in gel form. It can be placed in the exact depth and position desired without spreading and boasts a greater predictability than other treatments."

Physicists Find Clues to the Evolution of Wrinkles

Researchers at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst have been studying the evolution of wrinkles in a recent dermatological study, and have published several papers in the current issue of Physical Review Letters about their findings. Scientists are attempting to understand the formation of wrinkles in biological tissue, and looked at how wrinkles in a sheet adapt to an edge that tends to be flat.

In a related study, researchers looked at the transition from soft wrinkles to sharper folds, and proved that folds in the tissue, like the edges of a neatly made bed, strain the sheet and help to smooth out wrinkles.
