Standards for Cosmoderm and Cosmoplast Production
Treatment with FDA-approved CosmoDerm and CosmoPlast is an effective way to aid in the correction of facial wrinkles, frown lines, skin folds, vermilion borders of the lip, scars and other soft tissue deficiencies.
The collagen in CosmoDerm and CosmoPlast is isolated, and purified from human dermal tissue grown under very strictly controlled laboratory conditions. The starting dermal fibroblasts are checked for known pathogens, and the resultant tissue undergoes a series of stringent tests to ensure that it is free from contaminants. In an extra step, the collagen is subjected to additional viral inactivation.
Differences between CosmoDerm and CosmoPlast
Both products are from the same source. CosmoPlast is a denser collagen and is used in the treatment of deeper lines and furrows and lip augmentation or lip border. CosmoDerm is used for fine lines such as crow's feet and the fine lines radiating above the lips while. Both are very natural in feel and appearance.

Are there advantages of Cosmoderm and Cosmoplast over other fillers?
Least potential for swelling. Both products are referred to as "camera ready", meaning they have the least potential for post-injection swelling. Typically any minimal swelling is gone in a few hours and at most less than 24. If you want the least "side-effect" from a filler injection, then Cosmoderm or Cosmoplast may be your best choice with Juvederm coming in at a close 2nd.
Best for ultra fine lines. In addition, Cosmoderm works particularly well for fine lines (such as those on the upper lip often referred to as smokers' lines) as well as creating a soft natural lip border. Dr. Sedgh will explain the different fillers and what each will accomplish for you.
