Subcutaneous implant

An asset for your surgeries

AxCell Labs offers you a product with many different applications. The exceptional biocompatibility of our product makes it an outstanding choice for all reconstructive surgery applications. Moreover, its ability to be colonized by the body’s own cells, promoting the formation of healthy, durable new tissue, makes it unique in the field.

Soft tissue replacements currently used in aesthetic and reconstructive surgery have significant limitations. Existing solutions such as collagen, silicone, hyaluronic acid and autografts fail to combine biocompatibility, strength, integration, permanence and ease of use.


AxCell Labs’ cellulose action is threefold

Esthetic volumetry

AxCell’s injected cellulose not only provides short-term volume, but stimulates the formation of new tissue that maintains volume over the long term via the body’s natural colonization.

Tissue reconstruction

AxCell’s versatile, easy-to-handle cellulose stands out as a rebuilding material, as it is naturally colonized over time.

Protective interlayer

AxCell Labs’ bacterial cellulose, placed between an implant and tissue, acts as a hydrating barrier that is colonized by the patient’s body over time.

AxCell Labs’ cellulose action is threefold

Reinforces tissues

AxCell Labs’ bacterial cellulose offers additional support to surrounding tissues by providing scaffolding for the cells surrounding the operated area.

Provides a physical barrier

Our cellulose acts as a first line of defense in the event of wound reopening, protecting your implants from critical infections that can lead to relapse.

Promotes healing

The superior biocompatibility of bacterial cellulose prevents the onset of fibrosis and provides a hydrated environment that promotes tissue regeneration.
