The person in charge of Collagen Co., Ltd. visited the clinic.
It will be held at Roppongi Hills on the 4 month 9 day. The 90th Japan Cosmetic Surgery Society was asked to present as a symposist of the latest information on injectables such as hyaluronic acid and collagen.
I have made many presentations on collagen injection at academic conferences.
As a cosmetic surgeon, more than 14 years of collagen injection experience was said to be the number of clinical cases in five fingers in Japan. In the past, bovine collagen was mainly used, but bovine collagen can be avoided due to the BSE problem.
However, only the bovine collagen is approved by the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare.
Human collagen is FDA approved, so there is no problem with its use, but hyaluronic acid seems to have not even FDA approved.
Of course, the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare does not approve.
It was said that hyaluronic acid does not cause allergies, but in fact, there were cases where allergic cases appeared and became a problem.
I mainly use bovine collagen and human collagen to treat wrinkles, scars, and acne scars, but hyphaluronic acid, which can be expected to have a long lasting effect, is increasingly used for petit shaping. .
Collagen injection has very little pain because it is injected with a special fine needle of 32 gauge. Because it contains a local anesthetic called lidocaine, there is no need to worry about the patient's pain during injection.
There will be many injection materials in the future, but there are cases where the products made in China or Korea are not stable or the quality is unreliable. Is required.
Our policy is not to use products that cannot be relied upon, formulations with clinical efficacy and safety issues, and foreign bodies.
