Spiderwort Wins Prestigious Judge’s Choice Award at Industry-Leading Octane Medical Aesthetics Tech Forum

This award follow’s Spiderwort’s inaugural presentation to the medical aesthetics industry in the U.S. market.

Ottawa — February 7, 2023 — Spiderwort Inc., the biotech company innovating in cellulose-based tissue engineering, is proud to announce it has been selected as the recipient of the Judge’s Choice award at the Octane Medical Aesthetics Forum held on January 26 – 27 in Newport Beach, CA.

This award recognizes cutting-edge innovation in the field of medical aesthetics and is voted on by a panel of medical industry experts. Spiderwort’s revolutionary approach to regenerative medicine set it apart to earn this recognition. 

Spiderwort uses plant-derived scaffolding to create a structure for real tissue to grow. A leading application for these biomaterials is soft tissue augmentation for aesthetic enhancement. The company is taking a new approach to dermal fillers with CelluJuve™ — an injectable that not only allows for superior control and the use of smaller needles, but also enables precise corrections and decreases the likelihood of adverse events. With its unique and ideal viscoelastic properties, CelluJuve improves firmness and support levels that match the native tissue environment.
