Teosyal is a collection of sterile, pyrogen-free, and biodegradable dermal fillers made of non-animal synthetic hyaluronic acid, manufactured by Swiss pharmaceutical company Teoxane Laboratories. The fillers in this range are capable of withstanding various habitual movements of the face without disintegrating prematurely.
The packaging for the fillers across the range is sterile and must be stored in a clean room with a temperature ranging from 2°C to 25°C.
Teosyal fillers are formulated with innovative technology to allow the injectable gel to accommodate expressive facial movements. The gel stretches with movement and resists compression, resulting in a durable performance and a natural appearance for the patient. The area of injection and intended uses varies with each product, from correcting volume loss to fine lines.
Hyaluronic acid is an intricate carbohydrate complex that exists naturally in the human body. It functions to provide moisture to cells and tissues so that they can function optimally. Teosyal fillers range from their Redensity fillers, Puresense fillers, and RHA fillers. They classify their fillers as volumisers, essentials, enhancers, dynamics, and specifics. The injectables are capable of withstanding numerous expressive movements in the face without disintegrating prematurely. Lidocaine has also been integrated into the formula so that patients can receive treatment sessions with greater comfort. Once administered, the gel erases dermal depressions and provides a radiant finish.
Teosyal fillers are classified as medical devices and can only be handled by licensed and experienced medical practitioners specialising in aesthetic treatments. During the initial consultation sessions, review the patient’s medical information. If they are deemed suitable for filler injections, explain in detail the anticipated effects of treatment, the unintended side effects, and the appropriate aftercare methods. You should also advise patients to stop taking any medications or supplements with anticoagulant effects, such as aspirin, warfarin, fish oil, and ginkgo biloba. Just before injecting the dermal filler, sanitise the treatment areas thoroughly and assemble the medical device according to the illustrations shown in the instruction manual. The depth of injection will depend on the degree of correction required and the type of filler used.
Overcorrection should always be avoided. Injecting too deeply might result in a poor filling effect, whereas injecting too superficially will only cause discolouration. Injecting the filler into blood vessels or eyelids is prohibited. Always adhere to the directions of usage as stated in the instruction manual. After adequate correction, gently massage the treated areas to ensure unified gel integration into the surrounding tissues.
The duration of results with these fillers depends on the patient’s age, skin condition, lifestyle habits, and the type and amount of gel used. Generally, results should last between 6 to 9 months, after which the filler material will progressively disintegrate into the surrounding tissues. Patients can get touch-up injections whenever the initial improvements wear off.
The hyaluronic acid in these fillers is derived from a biofermentation process and undergoes a purification process to ensure the final product is free from pyrogens. There is therefore very little risk of inducing immunogenic reactions. Despite its high safety profile, some people should still steer clear of this filler, including:
Refer to the instruction manual for more contraindications and warnings.
Some localised inflammatory reactions are commonly experienced by patients.
The abovementioned symptoms are very serious and require an urgent trip to the hospital. Refer to the instruction manual for more probable side effects.
To ensure the smoothest recovery, patients should keep the treated areas clean to prevent the worsening of symptoms for the first 12 hours following procedure. They should also avoid alcoholic drinks and high-impact exercise sessions for a few days post-injection. As part of the aftercare process, it is also best to postpone any dental treatments and avoid environments with harsh temperatures (e.g. sauna, direct sunlight, frost) for at least 15 days following procedure.
