What Is Teosyal® and How Does It Work?
Teosyal® is a hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler that reduces the look of fine lines, wrinkles, crow’s feet and other signs of aging on the face. The goal of this treatment is to promote a healthy and more youthful appearance.
Hyaluronic acids (HA) are naturally produced by the body, but as we get older, the production of this substance slows down substantially or stops entirely in some people. The result is the development of visible lines and wrinkles in the face. Since HA is a naturally occurring substance in the body, there are virtually no risks involved in this procedure and there are no chances of experiencing any allergic reactions.
Teosyal® fillers can be injected anywhere throughout the face and neck. The liquid is slowly absorbed by the skin over time. This facial filler hydrates the skin and helps enhance your natural beauty as a result. The effects are usually immediate and can last anywhere from 9 to 18 months depending on the type used.
Within that timeframe, only one treatment session is required and you most likely won’t need any follow-up appointments unless you have any specific questions or concerns. However, if you do have any pressing questions after your treatment, Dr. Andres Gantous would be more than happy to consult with you in person in his office at Toronto Facial Plastic Surgery.
What Do Teosyal® Fillers Treat?
Teosyal® fillers can effectively treat the following skin conditions in your face and neck:
- Tired eyes (dark circles)
- Crow’s feet
- Laugh lines
- Marionette lines
- Lost volume in the face
- Fine lines and wrinkles
Teosyal® dermal fillers can also help restore your face’s natural radiance and glow, giving you the youthful appearance you desire by removing the dark spots throughout your face.
Teoxane Innovation is a unique formulation specifically designed for eye circles.
Recovery and Aftercare
The length of the recovery period depends largely on a number of factors including the patient’s physical ability to heal as well as the number of Teosyal® injections that were administered during the treatment. Most patients typically experience the majority of the bruising and swelling during the first two days following treatment; however, for some patients, these side effects can last anywhere from 7-10 days.
Regardless, most patients are usually able to resume their normal activities immediately following treatment. You just have to exercise a great deal of caution and make sure you don’t get injured or hit in the face with any blunt objects. The injection site will be sensitive during the recovery period, but it’s usually not required to take any time off of work or any other activities you’d normally do.
