Teosyal is dermal filler injected under the skin to add volume and smooth fine lines, wrinkles, imperfections and signs of aging. It also creates volume and can be injected into the lips, cheeks and nasolabial folds as well as soften angles in the jawbone. The active ingredient, hyaluronic acid, is naturally found in the body and gives the skin an elastic and youthful appearance. Hyaluronic acid naturally decreases with age and Teosyal injections replace the missing hyaluronic acid.

Good candidates are looking for a filler to enhance the appearance of the face or hands. They are in good health and are not pregnant or breastfeeding. Teosyal injections cannot be used while getting laser treatment, ultrasound treatment or chemical peels. It cannot be injected into an area previously injected with permanent fillers.

 The cost depends on the type of Teosyal filler used, the number of syringes needed and the training and expertise of the provider. The cost ranges from $400-$1200.

After having an injection, the area may appear puffy, red or bruised. Greater fullness can be seen immediately and the full results are seen after a few weeks. Teosyal injections generally last about one year.
