Novel Chitosan Dermal Filler with Enhanced Moldability and Elasticity.

Macromol Biosci 2022 Jun 13:e2200081. Epub 2022 Jun 13.

Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Seoul National University Boramae Hospital, Seoul National University College of Medicine, 5 Gil 20, Boramae-Road, Dongjak-Gu, Seoul, 07061, Republic of Korea.

Currently, dermal fillers are largely based on commercialized cross-linked hyaluronic acid (HA) injections, which require a large injection force. Additionally, HA can be easily decomposed by enzymes, and HA-treated tissues present a risk of developing granuloma. In this study, a chitosan-based dermal filler is presented that operates on a liquid-to-gel transition and allows the injection force to be kept ≈4. Read More

COVID-19 and Dermal Fillers: Should We Really Be Concerned?

Actas Dermosifiliogr 2022 Jun 2. Epub 2022 Jun 2.

Servicio de Dermatología, Hospital Universitario 12 de Octubre, Madrid, España; AG BIOMEDIC CLINIC, Madrid, España. Electronic address:

SARS-CoV-2 has caused millions of infections and deaths worldwide and case numbers continue to rise. Besides the effect of the virus on key organs - leading to respiratory illness, anosmia, diarrhea, and fever and other complications - delayed inflammatory reactions to hyaluronic acid dermal fillers, mainly in the face, have also been reported to occur after confirmed SARS-CoV-2 infections and in vaccinated individuals. While delayed inflammatory reactions tend to be self-limiting, they should be diagnosed and treated with corticosteroids, hyaluronidase, and/or antibiotics when necessary. Read More

Application of Cross-Linked and Non-Cross-Linked Hyaluronic Acid Nano-Needles in Cosmetic Surgery.

Int J Anal Chem 2022 23;2022:4565260. Epub 2022 May 23.

Gansu Provincial Maternity and Child-care Hospital, Lanzhou, Gansu 730050, China.

The common feature of non-cross-linked hyaluronic acid nano-needles is that they penetrate the skin and dissolve rapidly, and the non-cross-linked hyaluronic acid will migrate under the skin, so it is difficult to maintain the long-term expansion effect in a fixed position. In order to achieve the relatively long-term antiwrinkle effect, a kind of cross-linked and non-cross-linked compound hyaluronic acid microne was prepared. By inserting the microne under the skin, dissolving the non-cross-linked part under the skin and introducing the cross-linked gel particles under the skin, the effect of extending the microne was achieved.
