Non-cross-linked hyaluronic acid gel.
2 x 1ml, 14mg/ml of HA. Injected into superficial dermis.
Used for skin rehydration of the face, neck, hands and décolletage using a mesotherapy technique. It is quickly absorbed into the skin, replenishing the hyaluronic acid levels lost through natural ageing, restoring elasticity, firmness and moisturising the surface to give a more healthy looking appearance.
Not to be used in
Individuals with a known hypersensitivity to hyaluronic acid.
People with acne or other inflammatory diseases. Those prone to hypertrophic scarring.
Pregnant or breast feeding women.
Duration of effect
The manufacturers recommend that treatments are carried out on a monthly basis for four consecutive months to achieve the results. A maintenance programme can then be established. As the product is not a dermal filler, they do not give longevity data on single treatments alone.
Reported side effects
Expect erythema (redness), swelling, pain, itching, discolouration or tenderness at the injection site. This typically resolves spontaneously, within one or two days after treatment, and up to a week after injection into the lips.
In rare cases, glabellar necrosis, abscess formation, granulomas and hypersensitivity have all been reported with injections of hyaluronic acid products.
This will depend on the practitioner. Prices range from £180+ per syringe but normally a discounted package will be given for the treatment programme to include multiple syringes.
