A clinical study that emphasizes the benefit of skincare in combination with dermatological treatment
Injection of Hyaluronic Acid is a popular standard treatment of aesthetic dermatologists to effectively treat facial wrinkles. But little research had been done into whether cosmetic anti-wrinkle products could successfully enhance the visible effect of these treatments – until now.
We always work in mixed teams; we combine our expertise in the formulation of skin care products with the input of aesthetic dermatologists to develop effective products that support their treatment.

A pioneering clinical study conducted by Beiersdorf AG in cooperation with top aesthetic dermatologists has revealed that Eucerin Hyaluron-Filler successfully enhanced the visible effect of Hyaluronic Acid fillers. What’s more, it’s the first skincare range in the world that’s been proven to do so.
The study design
47 woman tested Eucerin Hyaluron-Filler Day Cream and Night Cream, plus Eye Cream twice a day.
Crucially, the study was “double-blind” – meaning neither the women nor the investigating dermatologists knew which side of the face Eucerin Hyaluron-Filler or the vehicles had been applied to.
According to Rainer Wolber, the study sets a high benchmark for cosmetic products as “we choose a double- blind vehicle-controlled design that is usually used in the pharmaceutical industry for drug testing.”
The study’s results were conclusive. Applying Eucerin Hyaluron-Filler twice daily was proven to visibly boost the effects of wrinkle filler treatments.
“The results surpassed our expectations and demonstrated that the regular daily application of Eucerin Hyaluron-Filler, with its unique ingredient combination, can help to enhance the visible effect of Hyaluronic Acid injections. The products were very well tolerated and increased skin moisture, “ Wolber said. “And the participants’ self-assessments paint a clear picture of the extent to which the positive effect is perceived by users.”
It was a completely new concept for the study design
