FAQ – Teosyal

Read more about Teosyal

Teosyal is a hyaluronic gel that is injected into the skin, to support the structure of the skin, preventing and treating lines, wrinkles, and rehydrating the dermis.

Teosyal is a dermal filler, and one of the ever growing 21st century alternatives to cosmetic surgery. Created and manufactured by Teoxane laboratories in Switzerland.

Teosyal hit the UK in 2005, and has proven to be very popular with many women and men, around the country, wishing to get plumper, smoother and more supple skin, shedding years from their appearance without the pain, expense and hassle of a surgical procedure.

Teosyal should only be administered by a medical doctor, trained in the technique of dermal fillers.

Swiss made Teosyal is manufactured in the heart of Geneva by the biotechnology company Teoxane. Their research and development department have created 8 unique products and continue to invest in the development of new products.

Teosyal  can be injected into the entire face, neckline, neck and hands.

Hyaluronic acid is a powerful moisturising agent, the quantity of which in the dermis gradually decreases with age. As a result, the skin dries out and becomes fragile, and the first wrinkles appear. The tissues progressively sag and the face becomes hollow.

Injected into the dermis, TEOSYAL effectively alleviates this hyaluronic acid deficiency thanks to its high hyaluronic acid concentration.

During the consultation prior to treatment Dr Ayahm Al-Ayoubi will outline any risk, or potential risks associated with a aesthetic procedures.

The typical events which are associated with dermal fillers are redness, swelling, bruising, and tenderness at the injection site, which will all resolve spontaneously.

Occasionally swelling may last longer than a few days, notably after lip augmentation.

Teosyal has shown outstanding tolerance, there have been no serious reactions reported with Teosyal Dermal Fillers.

Due to the fact that hyaluronic acid is already found naturally within the body, Teosyal is one of the most natural ways of gaining a healthy, younger look. Cosmetic surgery, such as, a face lift, brow lift, eyelid surgery and eyebag surgery are often very expensive, substantially more painful and, as all surgical procedures do, carry some significant dangers.

Although Teosyal and other kinds of dermal fillers are not 100% risk free, the risk is very slim and treatments – when administered by a medical professional and followed by the guidelines – carry no significant dangers.

As we get older the cells in our skin stop producing as much Hyaluronan. This is a process which is often sped up by excessive exposure to UVB and UV rays. Whether this be due to dedicated sun worshipping on holidays over the years, the use of sunbeds or just general exposure to the sun, each and every one of us, are eventually affected in some way by UV rays to a certain extent.

The way Teosyal combats this and makes the skin look younger and plumper, is by injecting you with almost a ‘top-up’ of hyarulonic acid. This hydrates the skin and promotes healthy skin function, which in turn adds volume beneath the skin’s surface. Many anti-wrinkle cosmetic products readily available, also contain hyarulonic acid due to these rehydrating properties, as well as, Teosyal’s own range of cosmetic products.

Depending on your age and other issues, such a,s the effectiveness of your immune system and the extent of the results you wish to achieve, it can take between one to three primary sessions to fully achieve the desired results. This is dependent on what product you use and what you individually are having done, but all treatments have an immediate effect.

After the initial treatment, around one or two maintenance sessions are sometimes recommended to maintain the original results. Again, depending on the individual, the effects of Teosyal last between nine to eighteen months. This is also depends on which brand of the product you wish to go for.

The Teosyal range has seven different products, tailored to different needs, from the Teosyal Thin Lines, which is recommended for use on fine lines and superficial wrinkles, such as, crow’s feet – Teosyal Kiss, designed specifically for use in the lips.

Generally the more intense the product used, the longer it will last. So for example, Teosyal Ultimate can last for up to eighteen months, due to the heavy duty purpose of the product, whilst the average duration of Teosyal Meso is around six months.

The length of time that each Teosyal treatment lasts is dependent on a variety of factors, including where you have the treatment and which product you decide to go with. Different factors, such as, the degree of the correction you require, your lifestyle choices, the state of your immune system and your age, also influence the duration of each treatment.

Various trials have indicated that the average duration of Teosyal treatments over the entire product range is around six to nine months. The average for each individual product however, will vary. For example, Teosyal Ultra Deep has been shown to be one of the longest lasting fillers currently on the market, averaging at around at a twelve month duration, so it could save hundreds of pounds, if used over a long period of time, whilst Teosyal Kiss lasts for an average of around six months.

Teosyal is officially approved by MHRA in the UK and the FDA in the USA and for restoration and correction of the signs of facial fat loss and is used for treating facial lines and wrinkles.

Where can Teosyal be used?

Teosyal can be injected into the entire face, neckline, neck and hands.

The Teosyal range consists of different formulations which restore face volume, rehydrates the skin, and repair cutaneous depressions. It is suitable for those who want to restore the tone, firmness and youth of their face.

Teosyal is suitable for both woman and men of different ages and it can help with deep folds around the mouth and nose, hands and neck.

Teosyal Kiss treatment for the lips is suitable for those who want to have fuller, sexier, natural looking lips.

How does Teosyal work?

Hyaluronic acid is a powerful moisturising agent, the quantity of which in the dermis gradually decreases with age. As a result, the skin dries out and becomes fragile, and the first wrinkles appear. The tissues progressively sag and the face becomes hollow.

Injected into the dermis, Teosyal effectively alleviates this hyaluronic acid deficiency thanks to its high hyaluronic acid concentration.

Teosyal combats the signs of aging by replacing the lost hyaluronic acid, plumping the skin and diminishing wrinkles.

Giving patients more choice than other fillers.
