What is Teosyal ®?

TeoSyal Injectable Soft Tissue Filler at SpaMedica TorontoTeosyal ® is a soft tissue filler or dermal filler used at SpaMedica Toronto to improve the contours of the face and add volume where it’s needed. It is also used to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles and re-hydrating the treated area. Teosyal® is made out of “sugar gels”. Sugar gels are repeating units of hyaluronic acid sugar. The hyaluronic acid sugar gels have become the most commonly injected filler product in the world. The reason they are so commonly injected is that they are well-tolerated by the body, they last a long time – even up to a year or more, and they require no skin test prior to injection. Teosyal® is one of the most commonly-injected hyaluronic acid sugar gels.

How is Teosyal ® injected?

Teosyal ® comes in a variety of product types. Teosyal® Ultimate is the largest and most highly-crosslinked of the Teosyal ® family and it will last up to two years. Teosyal Utimate™ is often used for large-volume contour restorations such as the temporal hollow, cheek arch and cheekbone, under the eye and jawline.  In addition, Teosyal™ may be used in the lips and sometimes even to contour the nose.  The Teosyal injection is performed with a small, blunt micro-cannula.  The micro-cannula injection technique has been pioneered by Dr. Mulholland and he has taught physicians and injection experts worldwide on his blunt, micro-cannula Voluma™ lift techniques.  All injection specialists at SpaMedica are either highly-trained and experienced nurses, trained personally by Dr. Mulholland and have years and years of soft-tissue filler injection experience or some of Toronto’s most respected dermatologists or plastic surgeons. The blunt micro-cannula is introduced under the skin and most injections are performed along the surface of the bone, when shaping the face, or directly under then skin when correcting deep lines and furrows.  Juvéderm® Voluma, as well as its sister products Juvéderm® Ultra Plus and Juvéderm® Plus, have lidocaine or local anaesthetic already mixed in, thus, while the injection is proceeding, anaesthesia is also being instilled.

Who is a candidate for Teosyal ® soft tissue filler injections?

Candidates for Teosyal ® injections are those individuals that have lost some of the volume and proportion of their face or back of their hands either because of age, or those individuals who are highly-animated and have deep lines and furrows. In addition, Teosyal soft tissue filler candidates also include those who would like larger facial proportions than they inherited, such as a different-shaped nose or more aesthetically-pleasing lip or jawline contours. The various Teosyal products are expertly deployed in the areas where they may be indicated.

A good candidate for Teosyal ® soft tissue filler and dermal filler is realistic about the type of smoothening, youth, volume and shape that can be achieved with a simple soft tissue filler and often good candidates will undergo combination therapy at SpaMedica with BOTOX Injectable, Fractional lasers and IPL FotoFacical RF and IPL Photofacial colour correction and lasers.

Areas of the Face that can be treated with Teosyal at SpaMedica Toronto

There are a number of facial areas where Teosyal can be injected safely and effectively to smooth lines and reshape and contour soft tissue. Injections are performed with a blunt microcannula

Dermal Filler Skin Section and the Injectable Area Teosyal

Teosyal, like all hyaluronic acid sugar gels, is injected with a safe, blunt microcannula under the skin or deep in the fat. The Gel occupies space and absorbs water resulting the smoothening lines and shaping of tissue.

Contraindications to Teosyal ® injections would be allergic reaction to Teosyal ® in the past, which is exceedingly rare and usually due to the cross-linking material rather than the Juvéderm ® itself.  Other contraindications would be patients who might be pregnant or patients with inflammation, infection or skin cancer in the area of injection.

Is the Teosyal ® soft tissue filler injection painful?

The Teosyal ® products are mixed with xylocaine and local anesthesia and, as such, they are very comfortable and tolerable procedures.

How long does the Teosyal ® soft tissue filler injection take?

The Teosyal ® injection procedure takes approximately 15 to 45 minutes, depending on the amount of product injected and the areas it is injected.

How long is the recovery following a Teosyal ® soft tissue filler and dermal filler injection?

The recovery following a Teosyal ® soft tissue filler or dermal filler injection depends upon the areas injected and the amount of products injected, as well as the patient and age of the patient.  Individuals who have not been taking aspirin or non-steroidal anti-inflammatories leading up to the procedure generally have minimal swelling, especially with the blunt, micro-tip cannula technique, as the blunt micro-tip cannula tends not to disrupt small vessels and veins that lead to bruising.   There’s a modest degree of swelling and depending on the number of syringes and areas injected, most patients can return to work the next day. For large-volume injections and Teosyal Voluma™ lift treatments, it is recommended that patients take one to two days off prior to returning to work.

What kind of results can I expect with my Teosyal® soft tissue filler injection?

You can expect excellent results following your Teosyal® injections as the SpaMedica injection nurses and professional have been trained personally by Dr. Mulholland and are highly-experienced and qualified, with years and years of experience of soft tissue contour, line and wrinkle management and volume shaping. It is common for patients undergoing soft tissue filler injections at SpaMedica to look 5-10 years youngerafter their combination filler, Botox Injectable and fractional laser procedures.

What are patients saying their Teosyal ® injections at SpaMedica?

SpaMedica Teosyal soft tissue filler and dermal filler injection patients are generally extremely happy. SpaMedica has been injecting soft tissue fillers for well over 15 years. Dr. Mulholland and most of his expert injection nurses have more than 15 years of experience and well over 85% of all soft tissue filler injection patients return to SpaMedica over and over again as they know they are receiving the artistry and expertise that leaves their face looking natural and attractive rather than overinjected and thus avoiding the dreaded “filler face”. You can find soft tissue filler and Juvéderm® injection centres anywhere, but very few, if any, have the overall artistry and expertise of SpaMedica. To see what patients have to say, watch Dr. Mulholland perform his famous Volumalift procedure on The Today Show Volumalift episode and/or The Doctors Show Volumalift episode.

How long will the results of my Teosyal ® last?

Depending on the product used, the results of Teosyal® injection may last up one or more years.  Teosyal® Ultimate is the longest-lasting Teosyal® product and is often used for volume shaping of the face, hands and volumization of the lips. In general, most patients get volume shaping once a year and return for reinjection every 12 to 14 months to maintain the optimal soft tissue proportion, shape and smoothness.

Is there any maintenance required?

Teosyal® soft tissue fillers and facial shape and proportion enhancements in general are a temporary thing. As we age, there are enzymes that break down our normal collagen and elastin as well as the hyaluronic acid sugar gels.  Hyaluronidases are natural degradation sugar enzymes inside our bodies and cells that break down the Teosyal® product over time. Thus, most patients who enjoy nice post-soft tissue Teosyal® contour and shape will return once a year to once every year-and-a-half for volumization and restoration. Highly-animated areas, such as the lips, tend not to last as long as un-animated areas and require re-injection sooner.

How much will my Teosyal ® soft tissue filler injection cost?

At SpaMedica, generally the injection procedure pricing is by the syringe. Teosyal® starts at approximately $599 a syringe . The more syringes you inject, the less you pay per syringe and at SpaMedica, as one of the country’s highest-volume injection centres, we’re able to procure excellent pricing from manufacturers and we pass this opportunity on to our valued soft tissue injection and Juvéderm® clients.

Why choose SpaMedica and Dr. Mulholland for my Teosyal ® injection?

By choosing SpaMedica and Dr. Mulholland and his team of expert injectors, you will be receiving your soft tissue filler from highly-trained injection artists. You will be able to avoid the dreaded “filler face” and be able to achieve a very natural-appearing facial aesthetic restoration and rejuvenation safely and effectively with a micro-cannula technique, which is the safest of all the injection methodologies. The micro-cannula technique, pioneered by Dr. Mulholland and taught to his injection team minimizes the risk of the injection needle getting inside a vascular structure and getting some type of embolization of the product to dangerous areas of the eye, skin or face. At SpaMedica, you will experience the safest possible injection environment with some of the country’s most experienced and highly-trained and aesthetically aware injection specialists.

How can I show Dr. Mulholland my concerns and see if I am a candidate?

Toronto Teosyal patients should simply fill out the appointment request form or “ask a question” form and upload up to 3 photos for Dr. Mulholland to review.
