Fibrel - Information about Fibrel

Fibrel completes the list of animal derived injectable collagens. The source of Fibrel is porcine collagen. Three items are combined to actually make up Fibrel: the porcine gelatin, e-aminocaproic acid, and plasma from the patient being treated.

Fibrel is indicated to treat acne scars and deeper wrinkle lines and furrows. It is not recommended for scars that are not easily stretched or fine wrinkle lines. Fibrel is supposed to stimulate inflammation and deposition of the patient's own collagen to replace it.

Fibrel has a rather complicated and time-consuming method of mixing, something that is not physician-friendly in a busy office. Fibrel comes as a freeze-dried gelatin powder and is mixed with the patient's own blood plasma, obtained through blood extraction.

Fibrel can be used for lip augmentation and to fill lines, pock marks, and facial creases. Fibrel is a useful product for the treatment of depressed cutaneous scars, facial lines, and wrinkles. There have been documented increases in collagen production and inflammatory response over time.

Fibrel is a medical implant device that has demonstrated use in the correction of cutaneous depressions from acne scars and wrinkles. Fibrel is a cosmetic skin care treatment to replace the collagen you lose with aging. Collagen is a natural substance in your body that provides support to your skin, joints, bones and ligaments.

Fibrel is injected into your skin and stimulates an inflammation process. Your body responds by making collagen to surround the foreign material. This growth of collagen leads to localized filling of lines, wrinkles, and facial folds. Some people say their injection results last for up to two years.

Collagen injections have a proven twenty-year track record and are still a choice treatment for eliminating fine, superficial lines and wrinkles. A good finishing touch when other fillers are used to correct deeper lines, collagen offers results that last nine months or longer, depending on the location. A newer type of collagen is Fibrel, which combines pig collagen with products from the patient's own blood. Fibrel lasts slightly longer than other types of collagen and has a lower rate of allergic reaction.

Fat transfer is another option for eliminating wrinkles and lines as well as plumping up fallen areas such as the chin or cheekbones, which tend to shrink with age. A small area of skin is numbed so that minimal volumes of the patient's own fat can be removed. The fat is then processed and carefully transferred to the problem area.

This is an expensive, painful procedure in which a mix of your own plasma, gelatin and amino caproic acid is injected into your skin. Results are sketchy and unclear at best and this method is not commonly used.

Fibrel is an injectible mixture created by combining the patient's serum with epsilon-aminocaproic acid and a gelatin powder of porcine origin. 9 You'll find that a localized response results in a fibrin clot around the gelatin matrix. Fibroblasts subsequently invade the clot and new collagen is laid down. You would place the material in the mid to deep reticular dermis.
