Allergan Acquires Aline HA Dermal Filler Thread

Allergan (www.allergan.com) has added Aline HA, a solid-state, hyaluronic acid dermal filler thread, to its aesthetic product portfolio.

The cross-linked HA thread, which resembles fishing line, is injected with a needle. It was developed by Geoffrey Gurtner, MD, professor of plastic surgery at the Stanford School of Medicine, as an alternative to liquid dermal fillers for facial wrinkles, particularly hard-to-treat forehead lines.
