Do Dermal Fillers (Restylane, Juvederm, Belotero) fight cancer?

restylane, belotero, juvederm

I stumbled across a very interesting article last night.  It discussed how the naked mole rat had some very unique qualities.  I has a very long life span for a rodent, up to 30 years vs. 3-4 years for most species, and it doesn’t get cancer!

After studying tissue cultures from the rat, they found that it had an unusually high level of Hyaluronic Acid (HA or HMW-HA) per Dr. Gorbunova and Dr. Seluanov, professors at the University of Rochester in New York.  Apparently this is needed for the rat to burrow because the rat has no hair and it acts as a sort of “tissue lubricant”.  To determine if this was the substance leading to the longevity and anti-cancer protection, they were able to genetically modify the rat so it didn’t produce high levels of HA.  Sure enough, the rats started to be susceptible to cancerous tumors!

Is it possible that the Hyaluronic Acid fillers we are using to improve wrinkles and volumize the face (Restylane, Juvederm, Belotero) are having more benefit than making us look good?  It is very possible.  Human studies will be conducted soon.  Get ahead of the curve and get some possible cancer prevention and look younger at the same time by visiting Dr. Weiner at the Aesthetic Clinique in Santa Rosa Beach, Florida for your dermal fillers.
