Teosyal is an Award Winning, 100% hyaluronic acid based dermal filler, wrinkle-filling range. The products are highly biocompatible and are slowly absorbed.
Teosyal can be injected into the entire face, neckline, neck and hands. Injected into the dermis, Teosyal effectively alleviates hyaluronic acid deficiency thanks to its high hyaluronic acid concentration.
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, wishing to get plumper, smoother and more supple skin without the pain, expense and hassle of a surgical procedure.
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.
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 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.
Teosyal offers a range of different products, each dependent on what each individual requires from their treatment. These include products especially designed to eliminate fine lines and wrinkles, such as, Teosyal Fine Lines, a product designed for the plumping and volumising of lips in Teosyal Kiss, and heavy duty products such as Teosyal Ultimate, designed for very deep lines and remodelling of the face.
The most well-known and used form of Teosyal is as an injection. In the injection form, a gel is injected directly into the desired area, usually in the points of the skin in which the tissues relax. This results in an immediate tightening and plumping effect.
The other readily available type of Teosyal product is their non-surgical cosmetic range. These products include a natural cosmetic dermal filler and cover up. The active ingredients in the products have been noted to correct imperfections, such as, lines and redness, and enhance the complexion.
Teosyal offers a complete range of eight tailored products to meet all patients’ needs. They range from the finest: Teosyal Meso, which re-hydrates the dermis (skin) – First Lines – Global Action – Deep Lines for fine lines, medium and deep wrinkles, furrows and folds – Teosyal Kiss to redefine lips and add volume and thicker gels: Teosyal Ultra Deep and Ultimate to remodel the face and add volume.
Depending on the age and other issues, such as the effectiveness of the immune system and the extent of the results patient wishs to achieve, it can take between one to three primary sessions to fully achieve the desired results. This is dependent on what Teosyal product is needed, however all Teosyal 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 used.
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 is the treatment and which product used. Different factors, such as, the degree of the correction require, lifestyle choices, the state of the immune system and age, also influence the duration of the results.
Various trials have indicated that the average duration of Teosyal treatments over the entire product range is around six to eighteen 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 24 months duration, whilst Teosyal Kiss lasts for an average of around 6-9 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.
Although Teosyal and other kinds of dermal fillers are not 100% risk free, the risk is very slim and treatments – when administered by a cosmetic doctor/ plastic surgeon and followed by the guidelines – carry no significant dangers.
