The Surgiderm® range, manufactured by Corneal Group, (now part of Allergan) is based on their patented cross-linking process called “3D Hyaluronic Acid Matrix Technology”, which is claimed to allow for a tighter, more uniform, and greater number of cross-link structures – allowing greater resistance to degradation, meaning that it claims to last longer than other hyaluronic based fillers.

Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a natural substance found inside the human body. It’s key properties are to keep the skin hydrated whilst adding plumpness. HA naturally breaks down in the body during metabolism and is then replaced. However as we get older and our metabolism slows down, replacement of HA is less often which results in less hydrated skin and less volume in the skin.
Medical professionals have been using HA in arthritis treatment and during eye surgery.
