Teosyal® - Dermal Fillers

Manufacturing is done in Switzerland by Teoxane Laboratories whilst distribution in the UK is done by Lifestyle Aesthetics. The product is composed of several monophasic hyaluronic acid based products, non-animal by origin and highly biocompatible. Its range of products has low protein and bacterial endotoxin levels - hence less reactions of hypersensitivity. The launch in the UK was done in 2005. It is a non-animal stabilised hyaluronic acid and is made by the bacterial fermentation of streptococci bacteria. It does not need prior testing and it is temporary with only a trace of the filler left in the body.

It has a number of product ranges which include Teosyal Global Action (30G) that comes in 25mg/ml of HA, 2 x 1ml syringes per box, and is injected into the mid-dermal layer, being suitable for mild to moderate wrinkles, nasolabial lines, glabellar lines, periorbital and perioral areas. Teosyal Touch Up (30G) is available in 25mg/ml of HA, 2 x 0.5ml syringes per box and is suitable for touch-up sessions when having Teosyal Global Action treatments.
