Everything you need to know about the New Injectable Treatment (available from August 2022)
How long has this been used overseas? This new injectable skin treatment was approved for use in Italy in February 2015 and has been available in UK for at least 5 years.
What is the active ingredient? The main ingredient is very similar to the temporary dermal fillers currently used world wide. The difference is the concentration is 2 to 3 times higher than existing dermal fillers, and the molecular complexes are not cross-linked with BDDE bonds.
What is the difference between dermal fillers and this Bio-Remodelling Skin Treatment?
Traditional dermal fillers are cross-linked to create a viscous gel which lifts and contours when injected into the face. The new skin Bio-Remodelling Skin Treatment does not act like usual dermal fillers, they do not act like a “water sponge” to lift and contour the face, rather, a high concentration of uncross-linked molecular complexes flow uniformly through the tissues to expand and stimulate tissue repair, supporting cell viability. The result is re-modelling of the extracellular matrix, increased elastin and collagen expression.
What benefits has scientific studies shown?
3D images taken before and after treatments and images as measured by 3D Lifeviz mini cameras and Quantificare have all shown positive change in volume. Clinical studies have shown increased in facial volume, improved hydration and elasticity.
Who are suitable for this procedure?
This is a very safe procedure for anyone who wishes to improve their skin elasticity and firmness, reduce acne scars through collagen stimulation and who wishes to achieve a natural “glow” in their skin.
Do I need to have other treatments?
You can combine this Bio-remodelling treatment with traditional dermal fillers or Lasers, please speak to our doctors to form a treatment plan to address your goals, to suit your budget, your stage of life.
What do I expect during a treatment?
This skin treatment is easily delivered via 5 injection points on each side of the face. We can apply topical anaesthesia to the skin prior to injections. You will notice local swelling for the first couple of days. The product will flow to the surrounding anatomical region, and any swelling and bruising will settle after a few days.
How many treatments do I need and when will I see results?
For most patients with mild to moderate skin laxity, you will notice the skin feels and look more hydrated after the first treatment. However for the majority of patients, they will notice more volume increase, firmness and elasticity a few weeks after the second treatment. Some patients with more severe skin laxity may need more treatments. Maintainence treatment every 6 to 12 months.
