With age, sun exposure, the effects of gravity, and other factors, several changes occur in the facial skin that manifest as visible signs of aging. One of the key changes that occurs is a reduction in the amount of collagen and hyaluronic acid in the skin. Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a hydrophilic (water attracting) substance that gives the skin its soft, smooth, hydrated, and youthful appearance. A decline in HA with age makes the skin less elastic and leads to the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles as well as volume loss that affects facial contours.
Teosyal is a line of injectable dermal fillers that can safely and effectively reverse many of the visible signs of aging by replacing HA in the skin. It adds to the skin's hydration, helps to add volume (skin redensification), and also fill deep wrinkles.
Please continue reading to learn more about Teosyal injectable filler products and how they can rejuvenate your facial skin, giving you long-lasting results with minimal downtime.
What is Teosyal RHA?
Teosyal is a comprehensive range of resorbable hyaluronic acid based fillers of non-animal origin. These products are used to redefine facial outlines and correct the visible signs of aging. The various products in the Teosyal line allow doctors to personalize the treatments. The injections can be performed in all areas of the face, including the chin, lips, cheeks, around the eyes, and forehead, as well as the neck and décolletage.
Different Types of Teosyal Dermal Fillers
The different products in the Teosyal range are all hyaluronic acid based dermal fillers made using an innovative manufacturing process. The range consists of dermal fillers with variable gel densities and other unique properties that make each filler ideal for treating particular areas of the face to achieve different results. For example, one type of Teosyal dermal filler may be designed to treat fine lines and wrinkles in the injected area while another may be specifically designed for adding volume or to remodel facial outlines. Some of the products in the range include:
Teosyal RHA 1 to treat fine wrinkles in the face, neck, and décolletage.
Teosyal RHA 2 to treat moderate wrinkles in the upper face, including the glabella (area between the eyebrows), forehead, and crow’s feet (corners of the eyes), and for adding volume in the lips or lip contouring.
Teosyal RHA 3 to treat deep wrinkles on the face such as vertical lip lines, nasolabial folds, other deep creases and lines, restore facial shape, and perform cheek augmentation.
Teosyal RHA 4 to add volume in dynamic extended areas, for example, the cheeks, and to enhance facial contours.
Teosyal RHA Kiss for subtle yet dynamic lip reshaping using only small amounts of the product.
Teosyal Puresense Ultra Deep for volume creation (to build or restore volume) in the chin and cheekbones.
Teosyal Puresense Ultimate for volume recovery in the chin, jawline, cheekbones, and temples.
Teosyal Puresense Kiss for lip contouring and lip enhancement.
Teosyal Redensity for tear trough treatment and under-eye correction.

Teosyal Puresense Deep Lines to treat deep lines and wrinkles, nasolabial folds, and marionette lines.
Most Teosyal products are available both with and without lidocaine local anesthetic.
What is Teosyal used for?
As mentioned above, various products in the Teosyal range, such as Teosyal Puresense Deep Lines, Teosyal Kiss, Teosyal Puresense Kiss, Teosyal Puresense Global Action, and Puresense Ultra Deep are used for the treatment of different skin concerns. They all contain cross linked HA, a type of resilient hyaluronic acid, that gives natural looking results.
Teosyal is used to treat varying skin concerns such as early signs of aging (fine lines), moderately pronounced wrinkles in the mid-dermis, highly pronounced wrinkles and deep lines in the deep dermis, nasolabial folds, vertical lip lines, marionette lines, glabellar lines, crow's feet, forehead creases, etc. They are also used for optimal control of facial dynamism by correcting volume loss and performing cheek augmentation, lip contouring, lip enhancement, and facial contouring.
Who is a good candidate for Teosyal?
Teosyal can be used in all parts of the face as well as the neck and neckline. Adults who wish to correct fine lines, wrinkles, irregular texture, acne scarring, facial contour irregularities, loss of volume, and other signs of aging are good candidates for Teosyal.
Is Teosyal safe for all skin colors?
Teosyal is safe for all skin colors and skin types.
How should I prepare for Teosyal treatment?
There is no specific preparation required. You should arrive for your appointment with clean, make-up free skin to minimize the risk of infection from this injection treatment.
How long does it take to perform Teosyal injections?
The average procedure time ranges from 15 to 45 minutes. If you are having a number of areas treated, it may take slightly longer.
Is Teosyal painful?
Teosyal fillers contain lidocaine, a local anesthetic, which minimizes any discomfort associated with the injections. Most patients find the Teosyal session to be quite comfortable and virtually pain-free.
How long does it take to recover from Teosyal treatment?
Most people recover within 24-48 hours of the treatment.
What to expect after the Teosyal appointment?
You will see almost instant results after your Teosyal treatment, once the mild swelling resolves. The results will continue to improve in the following 2-4 weeks as the filler settles.
Some simple precautions can help you get the expected results without complications. You should skip makeup and cosmetics for about 12 hours, avoid drinking alcohol and stay well hydrated for 3-4 days, and avoid other aesthetic and dental treatments for about a week. It's also a good idea not to travel by air or play competitive sports for 3-4 days after the treatment. Your doctor will advise you to avoid extreme heat like saunas, tanning beds, etc., for a week.
How long does Teosyal last in lips?
Teosyal products are HA based, which means they are gradually reabsorbed by the body's natural processes. The duration of hyaluronic acid dermal filler treatments are therefore long lasting but not permanent. The exact duration will depend on factors such as your skin type, severity of wrinkles, Teosyal variants used, amount of product used, and how quickly your body breaks down the HA. On average, Teosyal lasts up to 22 months. The results will not disappear overnight. You will notice a gradual depletion in the appearance of your skin. At this time, you can go in for a maintenance session.
Teosyal Recovery and Timeline
The recovery time after Teosyal is 24-48 hours. You can return to normal activities right away after your appointment. Teosyal RHA is a minimally-invasive treatment that hydrates and volumizes the skin and promotes collagen formation, giving you a softer, smoother, and more youthful appearance with no downtime.
Benefits of Teosyal Injections
Instant and Long Lasting Results
Teosyal results are instant and longer lasting than many other HA fillers. This means you need to return for fewer repeat treatments or maintenance visits.
Use in Various Areas
Different Teosyal products can be used in different areas of the face, including delicate areas. The Teosyal Redensity products contain antioxidants, amino acids, and vitamins, and are safe for injection into sensitive areas like around the eyes for tear trough correction and treatment of fine lines.
What are the risks?
Teosyal facial HA injections are safe when performed by a qualified professional. The risk of severe side effects is very low. However, as with any injection treatment, there are some risks, such as infection. Common side effects of Teosyal include redness, bruising, swelling, and itching in the treated area. These injection site reactions usually resolve pretty quickly after the treatment.
Is Teosyal a good filler?
Teosyal RHA are one of the best dermal fillers on the market, made with an innovative manufacturing process. They are superior to traditional hyaluronic acid fillers in that they can be used in dynamic extended areas and are more resilient and longer lasting.
Is Teosyal Better Than Juvederm?
Many patients prefer Teosyal aesthetic results while others prefer Juvederm. Both are excellent lines of HA fillers. You should work with your aesthetic medical professional to decide which will be more suitable for you. Both Teosyal and Juvederm have a similar treatment process and both give almost instant results with no downtime.
One advantage of Teosyal over Juvederm is that it contains resilient hyaluronic acid which can retain its shape by recoiling after compression, stretching, or bending. This makes Teosyal products suitable for injection anywhere in the face, including dynamic extended areas such as near the eyes, in the cheeks, and around the mouth. The resilient HA also gives more natural looking results and lasts longer because it is broken down more slowly. The longevity of Teosyal RHA is 22 months compared to 6-18 months on average for Juvederm.
Teosyal vs Juvederm vs Restylane: Which is right for me?
Your aesthetic medical professional is the best person to guide you about specific fillers based on their examination of your face and your unique skin needs. The filler treatment can be customized to your aesthetic goals. Some of the key features of Teosyal RHA, Juvederm, and Restylane, which are all HA based dermal fillers, are listed below. All are HA fillers that give natural looking results. An enzyme called hyaluronidase can be used to dissolve the HA if you are unhappy with the results.
Juvederm products contain lidocaine to minimize treatment discomfort. The results are immediate and can last for 6-18 months.
The formula for Restylane is more cohesive. This means it is not as smooth as Juvederm, but it provides more structure and support in some parts of the face. Restylane is one of the most inexpensive dermal fillers on the market.
Teosyal RHA products contain lower protein and bacterial endotoxin levels, so there is a lower chance of hypersensitivity (allergic reactions). Also, the HA is a resilient and more adaptive formulation, ideal for dynamic extended areas. This makes Teosyal RHA one of the most versatile injectable dermal fillers on the market currently. The results of Teosyal are one of the longest lasting among HA facial fillers, and on average, patients notice results for 22 months.
How much does Teosyal cost?
The cost of one syringe of Teosyal ranges from $500 to $1,000 on average. The cost of your Teosyal treatment will depend on the number of areas treated and the amount of product used.
Best procedures to pair with Teosyal
An experienced aesthetic medical professional can recommend complementary treatments that will enhance the results of Teosyal dermal fillers. The treatment can be individualized to include the best possible combinations of fillers to give you natural and long-lasting facial contouring and wrinkle reducing results.
Teosyal injections can also be combined with Botox, IPL, BBL, fractional laser skin resurfacing, and other cosmetic procedures.
Since both contain hyaluronic acid, can you mix Juvederm and Teosyal?
Doctors do not use Juvederm and Teosyal or other dermal fillers in the same area at the same time as this can cause complications and produce less than optimal aesthetic results. However, different fillers can be used concurrently in different parts of the face or during different treatment sessions (once the effects of a particular filler in an area have faded, you can have another type of filler injected in the same area).
