Cosmoderm is an FDA-approved dermal filler that contains natural human collagen. Cosmoderm has no pre-treatment testing requirement. This natural human collagen has been purified from dermal tissue grown under controlled laboratory conditions.

Cosmoderm is an excellent filler product for thin-skinned areas, fine wrinkles and shallow scars. Although temporary, it is one of the few fillers that can treat the fine vertical lines above the lips.

Individual results may vary

Cosmoderm is injected just below the surface of the skin, filling in unwanted fine lines and wrinkles and adding definition to the lip border. Sister product Cosmoplast, because of its denser formulation, is better suited for Lip Augmentation.

What to expect with Cosmoderm
CosmoDerm provides instant results in just one visit. So whether it's correcting facial wrinkles, fine lines or vermilion (lip) borders, you will see the full results immediately.

Do the injections hurt?
Cosmoderm injections are formulated with Lidocaine to minimize patient discomfort. However, Dr. Russman may apply an anesthetic numbing cream to the area you want injected to help relieve any discomfort.

How long does Cosmoderm last?
Treatment results are immediate and typically last three months or more. The collagen is gradually absorbed by the body. A systematic correction program keeps you looking how you want, so scheduled treatments work well for Cosmoderm users.

"It takes about five minutes to perform the procedure. It's quick, it's easy, it doesn't hurt, and it will last at least three to six months. CosmoDerm® and CosmoPlast® have a nice consistency and are very smooth, soft and natural feeling." - Dr. David Bank, MD Board Certified Dermatologist Director of the Center for Dermatology, Cosmetic, and Laser Surgery, Mount Kisco, New York

How Safe is Cosmoderm?
Treatment with FDA-approved Cosmoderm is a safe and 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 is isolated, and purified from human dermal tissue grown under very strictly controlled laboratory conditions. It is checked and stringently tested to assure safety. In an extra step, the collagen is subjected to additional viral inactivation for added safety.

How is Cosmoderm different from Cosmoplast?
Cosmoderm is used for fine lines such as crow's feet and the fine lines radiating above the lips and the lip border while
Cosmoplast is used in the treatment of deeper lines and furrows and lip augmentation or "plumping".

Is it safe to  use Botox® Cosmetic and Cosmoderm together?
Yes. There are no restrictions in using both
Botox and any filler together and the combined results of these, and fillers such as the recently-released hyaluronic acid filler Juvederm, are very satisfying.

The benefit of collagen-based dermal fillers is decreased downtime, decreased bruising, decreased pain on injection. Many aesthetic physicians are beginning to use collagen- and hyaluronic-containing fillers in combination to replace both of these natural components of the skin that are lost during the aging process.

Other fillers to learn about :
Restylane, Perlane and Juvederm - all hyaluronic acid fillers for wrinkles and lines; Radiesse, an injectable implant for the deep nasolabial folds and nose shaping; and Sculptra, an injectable collagen-spurring material for volume correction and lost volume replacement
