NASHA®

our core platform technology

A well-known, proven technology repurposed to transform lives.

the remarkable molecule

Non-Animal Stabilized Hyaluronic Acid (NASHA) is a mildly stabilized form of hyaluronic acid, a universal component of all human tissue and considered one of nature’s most versatile molecules. NASHA’s proprietary properties make it ideal for a broad range of medical uses.1 Adaptable, customizable and flexible, NASHA is uniquely versatile and the key technology in our product portfolio.

Hyaluronic acid is a substance naturally present in the human body. An ideal biomedical material that is entirely natural, and as a result, highly biocompatible with the body. It is a natural alternative to synthetic materials.

NASHA has a long history of safety and efficacy across a wide variety of medical applications.1 It has been used for over two decades in more than 50 million procedures in men, women, and children worldwide.2 Its most popular application is as a premium cosmetic dermal filler under the name Restylane®.

It is the foundation for all of our breakthrough products.

the benefits of NASHA1:

CUSTOMIZABLE

Can be tailored to exact specifications for a wide variety of medical treatments

ADAPTABLE

Serves as a stand alone product or a carrier for other therapeutics

VISCOELASTIC

Has the ability to flow, stretch, fill, bend, and reform

POWERFUL

Formulated for strength to separate, lift and support body tissue for longer periods of time creating therapeutic space 

BIOINERT

Its pure formulation, free from contaminants, allows for minimal immune response. NASHA is stabilized through a proprietary process that employs flexible entanglements to create stability, strength and lifting power, with minimal chemical linking.1

BIOSYNTHESIZED

Its makeup is very similar to human hyaluronic acid and enhanced to meet contemporary medical needs. NASHA is an ideal material to add tissue volume and create therapeutic space elevated by a proven record of biocompatibility, durability and low immune response.1

BIOABSORBANT

Unlike other polymers, NASHA can be degraded using hyaluronidase allowing for implant removal. Its remarkable gel properties, proprietary formulation, and long record of safety and effectiveness make NASHA ideal for a broad range of innovative, and yet to be discovered, medical applications.
