They are hollow, spherical microparticles with single port-like openings and pores covering their entire surface. They are at the heart of a CSIR innovation in soft tissue filler material, primarily because they are designed to be conducive to the in-growth of human cells and are completely resorbable. They've been named Dermapearl™, and CSIR researchers are now embarking on preclinical trials to substantiate their claims conclusively. The researchers believe that their invention could quite literally change the face of cosmetic surgery, and over a longer period, an array of medical conditions.
