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 around 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, often resulting in shedding years from their appearance without the pain, expense and hassle of a surgical procedure.
Teosyal is an Award Winning "100% hyaluronic acid based", wrinkle-filling products. These 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 this hyaluronic acid deficiency thanks to its high hyaluronic acid concentration.
Because 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 stops producing as much of this 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 skins 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 the 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 it is a gel 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 the patient’s needs. They range from the finest: Teosyal Meso, which re-hydrates the dermis (skin), First Lines, Global Action and Deep Lines for fine lines, medium and deep wrinkles, furrows and folds, Teosyal Kiss to redefine lips and add volume, up to the thicker gels Teosyal Ultra Deep and Ultimate to re model the face and add volume.
Depending on your age and other issues such as 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, dependent on the individual, the effects of Teosyal last between 9 – 18 months. This is also reliant on on which brand of the product you wish to go for.
The Teosyal range has seven different products tailored for different needs – from the Teosyal Thin Lines which is recommended for use on fine lines and superficial wrinkles such as crow’s feet, to 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 18 months due to the heavy duty purpose of the product, whilst the average duration of Teosyal Meso is around 6 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 6 – 9 months. The average for each individual product however will vary. So for example, Teosyal Ultra Deep has been shown to be one of the longest lasting filler currently on the market, averaging at around a 12 month duration, so could save hundreds of pounds if used over a long period of time, whilst Teosyal Kiss lasts for an average of around 6 months.
