TEOSYAL DERMAL FILLERS

When it comes to aging, most of us share the same goal: to do it gracefully. We hope to maintain smooth skin and a healthy, bright complexion for as long as possible. Unfortunately, our control over the aging process is limited. Our skin undergoes an unavoidable transition over time, facing changes in texture, volume, thickness and elasticity. This evolution reflects the combined effects of time, genetics, gravity and the environment on our tissues.

Today, the effects of aging can be minimized with a range of nonsurgical, noninvasive dermal fillers. Dr. Corey S. Maas is an expert in administering injectable fillers to achieve personalized and satisfying results. Thanks to his vast experience in the field, The Maas Clinic and Appearance Care Center are among the first practices to be approved to offer dermal fillers from Teoxane.

What Is Teoxane?

Teoxane is the manufacturer of Teosyal, a range of injectable dermal fillers made of hyaluronic acid. In 2020, the Switzerland-based company announced a U.S. distribution agreement with Revance Therapeutics. The partnership brings Teoxane’s Resilient HA (RHA) fillers to the United States for the first time.

The Teosyal range represents a new generation of highly differentiated hyaluronic acid fillers specially designed to accommodate the dynamic motion of the face. These fillers promise to give practitioners more control over treatments and offer patients immediate, long-lasting and naturally attractive enhancements.

How Is a Teoxane Filler Different From Other HA Fillers?

When we’re young, hyaluronic acid is abundantly present in our skin. Due to its extraordinary ability to bind to water, it is invaluable for maintaining the skin’s hydration, suppleness and texture. The amount of HA in our skin diminishes over time, along with collagen, elastin and facial fat. Together, these changes lead to wrinkles, less defined contours and loose, sagging skin. 

HA-based fillers are an extremely popular option for restoring volume and smoothness to the skin. Today’s patients have an astounding number of HA fillers to choose from. Although their basic mechanism of action is the same, they vary significantly in consistency, duration, optimal treatment depth and intended treatment area. It takes an experienced practitioner to understand the differences between Teoxane filler vs. Juvéderm and other well-known HA fillers.

The Teoxane filler family was developed using a new formulation of hyaluronic acid: RHA resilient hyaluronic acid. Teosyal RHA fillers differ from previous HA fillers because they can return to their original shape after being stretched, bent or compressed. This resilience means they can be placed in dynamic areas of the face without inhibiting movement or making your facial expressions look unnatural. The HA also takes longer to degrade, providing long-lasting results.

The Teosyal Filler Family

Teoxane’s Teosyal range consists of unique dermal fillers with differing gel densities and characteristics. Each Teoxane product is designed to treat a specific area of the face and achieve a different result.

Teosyal RHA 2

Teosyal RHA 2 is indicated for the treatment of moderate wrinkles in the upper face, such as glabellar lines, forehead lines and crow’s feet. It may also be used to increase volume in the lips or enhance their definition and shape. Unlike neurotoxins, Teosyal RHA 2 preserves dynamic facial motion, so there’s no risk of developing a “frozen” look.

Teosyal RHA 3 

Teosyal RHA 3 is indicated for treating deep facial wrinkles, such as nasolabial folds, as well as the reduction of vertical creases at the sides of the mouth, cheek augmentation and other facial contouring. This filler addresses issues associated with loss of underlying fat, loss of skin elasticity and repeated muscle movements to sculpt a younger-looking, more beautiful appearance.

Teosyal RHA 4

Teosyal RHA 4 is indicated for volume enhancement in dynamic and extended areas, such as the cheeks, temples and facial contours. A loss of fat and thinning skin in these areas can give the face a tired and worn look. Teosyal RHA 4 filler provides a natural lifting effect that smoothes facial lines and contour depressions.

Who Should Consider Teoxane Fillers?

HA fillers are remarkably versatile products. Provided they are injected by a qualified and experienced practitioner, they are safe for use in most patients seeking nonsurgical facial rejuvenation. Teoxane fillers may be used to improve:

  • Forehead wrinkles
  • Glabellar lines
  • Crow’s feet
  • Hollow temples
  • Under-eye circles
  • Flat cheekbones
  • Gaunt cheeks
  • Nasolabial folds
  • Lines around the lips and mouth
  • Thinning lips
  • Jawline definition
  • Chin shape and projection

While the risks associated with Teosyal dermal fillers are minimal, they are not right for everyone. Your injector will ask questions about your health history and treatment goals at the beginning of your appointment to ensure Teosyal fillers are a safe and effective option for you.

The Teosyal Procedure

Before your treatment begins, your provider will clean and sterilize your skin. They may also apply a topical anesthetic to numb the area before the injections. Many Teosyal fillers contain lidocaine, a mild anesthetic, to further minimize discomfort during the treatment. Your provider will then carefully administer a series of small injections and gently massage the area to ensure the filler is smooth and even. The injection process usually takes less than 30 minutes and you will be able to resume your daily routine immediately afterward.

What to Expect After Teosyal Injections

You may have some swelling, bruising or redness after Teosyal injections, but that should dissipate quickly. Serious Teoxane filler side effects are rare and will be discussed in detail before your treatment. In most cases, you can expect no required downtime and minimal instructions for aftercare. Avoid using makeup for 12 hours and drinking alcohol or engaging in strenuous activities for a period of 72 hours post-injection. It’s also advisable to avoid excessive sun exposure and extreme temperatures (such as saunas or hot tubs).

Enjoying the Results of Your Teoxane Filler

The benefits of Teosyal filler can normally be seen instantly. They’ll continue to improve in the coming weeks as the hyaluronic acid attracts moisture to the area to plump your skin. The longevity of your Teosyal treatment will depend on your skin type, the area treated, how your body metabolizes the product and the volume of filler injected. Under optimal conditions, Teosyal can last up to 22 months.
