Aliaxin® is a monophasic dermal filler product range containing a combination of well-defined molecular weights of hyaluronic acid to obtain different biological and mechanical effects. Key features of the Aliaxin are high tissue integration and stability, resulting in natural, but at the same time long-lasting results. It is manufactured by IBSA Farmaceutici Italia in a U.S. FDA approved site in Italy, and distributed in the UK & Ireland by HA-Derma Ltd.
IBSA’s hyaluronic acid is an ultrapure grade hyaluronic acid, produced through a patented bio-fermentation process, of Streptococcus Zooepidemicus, which ranks worldwide as ‘top quality’ in terms of purity, safety and its high resistance to thermal production processes.
The Aliaxin cross-linking process results in a ready-to-use gel without the need for additional fragmentation or manipulation, with a low cross-linking percentage (<10%) and a low content of BDDE residue (<0.1ppm). All of which makes the final product safer and easier to inject thanks to the optimisation of the viscoelastic characteristics.

Its persistence in tissue is the special feature of this formulation and it is capable of guaranteeing a long-lasting action and a good lifting effect for wrinkles. This characteristic is obtained by altering the cross-linking grade of a mix of hyaluronic acids, with medium and high molecular weight. ALIAXIN® GP is ideal for the treatment of localised beauty flaws and increasing the localised volume of those areas of the face which characterise its three dimensional nature. Also suitable for medium term touch-ups for maintenance. The gel has excellent viscosity and plasticity for user-friendly intradermal treatments which are well tolerated by patients.
Duration: This depends upon the degree of correction required, your age and lifestyle as well as the correct placement of the product by a practitioner. The manufacturer IBSA claims that Aliaxin is long-lasting and effective from 6 to 12 months and suggests that one or two treatments per year are sufficient – depending on a grade used. Hyaluronic acid is completely broken down within the skin over a period of months, eventually leaving no trace of the filler.
Do not use: Individuals with a known hypersensitivity to hyaluronic acid. Pregnant or breastfeeding.
Possible side effects: Transient erythema (redness), swelling, pain, itching, discolouration or tenderness at the implant site.
