New Dermal Filler May Be Better For Your Skin

If you’re at that age where you’re starting to notice a few wrinkles and thinking it may be time to consider injectable fillers, you may soon have a new option.

A new study demonstrates that a combination of adipose stem cells combined with micronized acellular dermal matrix (also known as Alloderm), may be a better solution than collagen or fat transfer.

Dr. Jin Soo Lim of the Department of Plastic Surgery at the Catholic University of Korea, who is leading the team that is developing the new filler technology, claims this new mix offers a softer, more natural appearance and may raise the bar in terms of aesthetic outcomes in dermal filler procedures.

Dr. Lim recently told Cosmetic Surgery Times that micronized Alloderm may be useful for the growth and differentiation of human adipose stem cells and provide a good scaffold for the stem cells when constructing fat tissue for fillers.

This concept is still early in development, and more studies to evaluate its safety and efficacy are needed before doctors can determine whether it is a viable treatment option for patients.

We’ll keep you posted on future developments.
