What is Juvéderm® HYDRATE?
At the Ruth Eaton Clinic, we prescribe Juvéderm® HYDRATE as it is a proven treatment specifically designed to improve skin hydration and elasticity, resulting in a more refreshed appearance and a natural, healthy glow in the face, neck, décolletage, and hands.
Juvéderm® HYDRATE effectively replenishes depleted levels of hyaluronic acid (HA) in your skin to restore a natural, healthy glow. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance found in the body that helps to hydrate and add volume to our skin.
Natural HA is broken down by the body in one or two days so it is constantly replaced. As we age, this replacement mechanism diminishes, so the moisturising and plumping effects of HA decrease.
Juvéderm® HYDRATE also features mannitol, an anti-oxidising agent that helps prevent the build-up of free radicals within the skin that degrade HA. With the addition of mannitol, the effects of the treatment can be prolonged.
How does Juvéderm® HYDRATE work?
Juvéderm® HYDRATE works because of the super-hydrating power of HA, which occurs naturally in the body. The hydrating effects of HA come from the fact that it retains water and absorbs more than 1000 times its weight!
It is designed to replenish HA lost through ageing, rehydrating the skin, and improving its elasticity and tone. It is administered through tiny injections about 1-2 cm apart. Once injected, the HA gel flows smoothly and distributes evenly into the skin.
What will be involved in my skin rejuvenation treatment?
The actual treatment takes from 15 to 30 minutes. First, Ruth will clean the area to be treated and may apply an anaesthetic cream to ensure the most comfortable treatment possible. Then she will inject tiny quantities of Juvéderm® HYDRATE product, using a fine needle below the treatment area.
After the injection, Ruth will smooth the product in your skin by massaging the treated area.
How long will the effects of my Juvéderm® HYDRATE treatment last?
Results with Juvéderm® HYDRATE typically are long-lasting, up to 3 months when part of a skin regime.
The duration of results may sometimes be shorter or longer depending upon your age, physiology and lifestyle (smoking and exposure to sun or UV rays may shorten the effect).
With Juvéderm® HYDRATE, your results are immediate and very natural looking. With a few small precautions, you can return to work and resume your social life immediately.
Are there any side effects?
Following treatment, you may experience redness, slight swelling, or bruising at the treated area. These side effects will not last and can easily be covered up with your usual makeup.
What are Ruth’s recommendations following my treatment?
You should not use any make-up during the 12 hours that follow the injection treatment and avoid any extended exposure to the sun, UV light, and temperatures below 0°C, as well as any sauna or steam bath sessions during the two weeks that follow the treatment.
When I got married for the second time, I was determined to look drop dead gorgeous! Having lost weight I then went to Ruth for advice on what treatments might give me a natural glow on the day and far beyond. For me it has been the icing on the cake, as I felt like a star on the day and still receive lovely comments many months later.
What is Teosyal Meso?
Hyaluronic acid is a natural, major component of our skin. Its hydrating, lubricating and viscoelastic properties make the face well-rounded, smooth and well-defined. These qualities deteriorate with age: the upper and lower cheeks become sunken, wrinkles appear and the face’s oval shape is lost, affecting its overall harmony.
Teosyal Meso is an award winning 100% hyaluronic acid based filler gel which is highly biocompatible and slowly absorbed when injected into the dermis. Teosyal Meso effectively alleviates hyaluronic acid deficiency, preventing and instantaneously correcting wrinkles and hollows whilst remaining perfectly in keeping with your personality and facial features.
The viscoelastic and rehydrating properties of Teosyal Meso restore all the suppleness, elasticity and tone to your skin.
The result is immediate and natural. Your skin remains smooth and supple.
What is Teosyal Meso best used for?
- Filling wrinkles and lines
- Remodelling cheekbones and softening the contours of the face
- Increasing and remodelling lip volume with an in-depth rehydrating effect
- Revitalizing and rehydrating the skin
- Preventing the appearance of wrinkles and lines even in the most sensitive areas such as the neck and neckline
What can you expect to experience during and after a treatment with Teosyal?
The treatment session lasts an average of thirty minutes. If you are sensitive to injections, particularly when treating the sensitive lip area, Ruth may suggest an anaesthetic cream or local anaesthetic to completely numb the area to be injected.
The desired result is immediately visible. Slight discomfort or swelling and a little redness may appear at the points of entry. Thanks to the high purity of Teosyal Meso, all these problems generally lessen within 3 hours and disappear completely within an average of 24 hours.
How long does Teosyal Meso last?
Results are immediately visible. In order to optimize the achieved result, Ruth will recommend the best number of sessions for each client, which may vary between 1 and 3 initial sessions. The lasting effect of Teosyal Meso is increased with successive sessions.
In order to maintain the results achieved, additional treatments will be required but less of the product will be necessary, thanks to its truly cumulative effect.
Are there any side effects?
Teosyal Meso is not advised for pregnant or breastfeeding women or for people with known hypersensitivity to hyaluronic acid, autoimmune disease or other diseases affecting the immune system.
During the week prior to treatment, the use of high doses of aspirin, anti-inflammatory painkillers and anticoagulants is strongly discouraged. During the days following treatment, exposure to extreme temperatures should be avoided (intense cold, saunas, UVs and the sun).
