Dermal Filler by TEOSYAL® ( Teoxane Lab)

Dermal filler by TEOSYAL is injectable filler made of hyaluronic acid that is designed to treat wrinkles, specific areas such as the perioral or periorbital, and to add volume to the face that experience collagen lost.

The Difference Between TEOSYAL® Dermal Filler and Other Dermal Fillers

Thanks to TEOSYAL® dedicated expertise in designing and manufacturing dermal fillers, the TEOSYAL® dermal filler line is an effective, safe way to replace your skin’s lost hyaluronic acid, bringing back its volume and smoothing away facial wrinkles and folds. The most recent line of TEOSYAL® dermal fillers has been developed using a new formulation of hyaluronic acid: RHA resilient hyaluronic acid®.8

TEOSYAL RHA® dermal fillers differ from traditional hyaluronic fillers as they are able to recoil and spring back to their original shape (what we call resilience) after being altered, stretched, bent or compressed. Resilience is an important quality for fillers placed in dynamic areas of the face such as the cheeks, around the eyes, and around the mouth. This resilience not only provides a more natural result as your face moves, the hyaluronic acid also takes longer to degrade, providing long lasting results. (TEOXANE Data on File.

Combination of PRP with Microneedling

Microneedling with Dermapen 4 is a procedure where a microneedling pen with 12 ultra frine sterile needles is injected into the skin. This creates small punctures and some form of injury to the skin. Our body naturally responds to this injury by healing itself and stimulate collagen formation. As we age, our body will produce less and less collagen, and by doing microneedling this will activate and boost collagen and elastin production as well as cell turnover.Â

This combines with the plasma penetrated into the skin, will effectively treat problems such as fine lines, wrinkles, under-eye bag, uneven skin tone and texture.

Apart from Microneedling, the plasma can be injected using needles to treat specific concerns such as fine lines around the mouth area, and under-eye bags.
