WHAT IS INTRALINE FOR MEN?
Intraline for Men is a synthetic, cross-linked hyaluronic acid dermal filler produced specifically for male patients who suffer from very distinct wrinkles and loss of defining facial contours. The manufacturer, Bohus Biotech AB, formulated the implant gel to be made of smooth spherical hyaluronic acid molecules via the Spherification Technology for seamless results. The gel is viscous, sterile, free from pyrogens and is supplied in a 1mL glass syringe with a strength of 20mg/mL. A box of Intraline for Men also comes with traceability labels, a product information pamphlet and 2-27G needles. Store this item in a temperature between 2℃ and 25℃ and away from sunlight and freezing temperatures.
WHAT IS IT USED FOR?
Patients suffering from deep wrinkles and folds, such as frown lines, can benefit greatly from Intraline for Men. It is also perfect for redefining the chin, lips, and nose impeccably without surgical methods.
HOW DOES THIS DERMAL FILLER WORK?
Good skin health is made possible by functional skin cells like collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid. Collagen and elastin fibres provide mechanical support and elasticity to skin while hyaluronic acid ensures that these fibres stay hydrated. These cells are also continuously replenished to maintain proper skin health as characterised by having adequate hydration, suppleness, volume, and minimal blemishes.
However, as time passes, the production of these cells slows due to the biological ageing of the body. What started as a simple fine line can progress into a deep-set wrinkle. In addition, harmful factors like smoking and extensive UV exposure can introduce lots of free radicals, which further exacerbate skin depressions, resulting in a worn-out appearance.
Intraline for Men works by introducing synthetic hyaluronic acid into the damaged skin structure. The gel temporarily provides a firm framework to which the tissues can cling. Empty skin volume gets filled with the gel, causing wrinkles to be filled and folds to be lifted. The effects are very subtle and seamless because the gel is made of spherical hyaluronic acid molecules.
HOW TO INJECT IT?
First, a thorough medical check-up must be conducted on patients. Information regarding their medical status, medications and/or supplements taken and dietary habits are useful to tailor the treatment according to individual needs. Patients should also be advised about the possible desirable and undesirable outcomes following treatment. Once the patient’s suitability to receive Intraline injections has been ascertained, the treatment may be planned.
Confirm that the filler gel is still sterilised and within its shelf life. If the product was stored in the fridge, leave it in room temperature for around 20 minutes before the treatment session. Remove any makeup on the proposed area and clean it thoroughly. Sanitise the area and apply pain relief creams if needed. Remove the protective cap on the syringe and attach a sterile needle to the syringe via the Luer lock connection. Slowly inject the gel intradermally into the dermis while pulling the needle backwards. The dosage of gel depends on the severity of the skin depressions. Massage the injected area gently so that the filler gel binds smoothly with the facial contours. Discard any leftover gel and used needles.
Aesthetic filler treatment are categorised as medical procedures and can only be conducted legally by a certified physicians specialising in dermal filler injection techniques. The entire procedure must be carried out aseptically while abiding strictly to standard intradermal injection precautions. Do not inject the hyaluronic acid into prohibited areas, such as into blood vessels or on skin that is still recovering from previous aesthetic treatments (e.g. chemical peeling). Also, do not inject the gel too superficially as it may cause discolouration. On the other hand, injecting too deeply can make the gel activity to be short-lived. Please read the product information pamphlet for the complete list of precautions and usage instructions.
HOW LONG DOES THIS FILLER LAST?
The desirable effects of Intraline injections can last up to a year, after which the filler will slowly dissolve into the surrounding skin tissues. Patients can go for maintenance sessions annually to keep up their youthful looks. However, patients should be advised that the duration of action differs across individuals.
IS THIS PRODUCT SAFE?
Yes, Intraline for Men is an exceptionally safe dermal filler made from a non-animal source. Hyaluronic acid is sourced via bacterial fermentation and is highly purified to be free from disease-transmitting animal protein and endotoxins. Hyaluronic acid already exists naturally in various parts of the body as hydrating complex sugar molecules. So, patients face a minimal risk of foreign body reactions. This filler gel is still unadvised for use on some people, including:
- Patients with hypersensitivity to hyaluronic acid-based products;
- Patients with systemic blood disorders;
- Patients on blood-thinning agents (e.g. NSAIDs, warfarin, high doses of vitamin E supplements);
- Patients with skin diseases/infections/inflammation (e.g. hives, cold sores, acne, open wounds);
- Patients who have had other permanent implant(s) administered on the same area(s) of treatment.
In addition, the safety of this medical device on pregnant, lactating and paediatric patients is still uncertain. Please refer to the product information pamphlet for the complete list of contraindications and warnings.
