FACIAL AESTHETICS - US PATIENTS: Zyderm & Zyplast - Product Information
Introduced 18 years ago, Zyderm® and Zyplast® injectable collagen implants have set the standard in filler materials for smoothing facial lines, wrinkles and scars and in providing lip border definition. Treatments supplement the skin’s natural collagen, require minimal procedure time, and provide immediate results. Today, more than one million people worldwide have been treated with Zyderm® or Zyplast® collagen implants.
Zyderm and Zyplast implants are composed of highly purified bovine dermal collagen that is dispersed in phosphate buffered physiological saline containing 0.3% lidocaine.
Zyderm and Zyplast implants are indicated for the correction of contour deformities of the dermis in non-weight bearing areas. These implants have been employed successfully in many areas of the body to correct distensible acne scars; atrophy from disease or trauma; glabellar frown lines; nasolabial folds; rhinoplasty, skin graft or other surgically-induced irregularities; and other soft tissue defects.
Four weeks prior to the procedure, Collagen Test Implant is administered intradermally into the volar forearm to determine if a patient has a sensitivity to the implants. Ninety-seven percent (97%) of men and women tested can be treated with Zyderm and Zyplast implants.
If a patient is eligible to receive treatment, Zyderm and Zyplast implants are implanted intradermally through a fine gauge needle into the appropriate facial planes needed for correction. Treatment with Zyderm and Zyplast implants consists of a simple in-office procedure that can be completed quickly and conveniently, even during a lunch hour. Most patients return to their normal routine immediately following the procedure.
An ongoing series of customized treatments can preserve the look that is desired. These treatments are as easy and convenient as the first one.
Zyderm® and Zyplast® implants, introduced in the early 1980's, remain the most widely used, safe, and effective choices for smoothing lines, wrinkles, scars, and for defining the lip border. More than1 million treatments in over 40 countries have been administered with Zyderm and Zyplast implants.
Rigorous clinical trials to determine the safety and efficacy of Zyderm and Zyplast collagen implants were conducted from 1976 to 1981. This data was submitted to the Food and Drug Administration and Zyderm and Zyplast implants were cleared for marketing in 1981 and 1985 respectively. No other injectable collagen implants currently on the market have undergone such extensive study.
More than one million treatments in over 40 countries have been administered with Zyderm and Zyplast implants.
