When you buy a box of Stylage M, you will get 2-1mL preloaded syringes, 4 single-use 30G½” disposable needles, a set of labels for traceability, and a product manual. Store this item in a clean room at a controlled temperature between 2℃ and 25℃.
WHAT IS IT USED FOR?
Stylage M is an excellent injectable filler for correcting medium to deep wrinkles, including marionette lines and nasolabial folds. In addition, the cosmetic filler can revitalize the appearance of the backs of hands and help contour areas such as the nose.
HOW DOES THIS DERMAL FILLER WORK?
Skin depressions like wrinkles and folds happen when there is damage to the skin’s structure. The production and maintenance of important skin structural cells like collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid decelerate as the body grows old. Furthermore, repetitive movements like smiling and squinting can exacerbate these skin issues. So, folds and lines deepen and become more prominent. The hyaluronic acid is obtained biotechnologically and is processed using the patented IPN-Like Technology. This advanced manufacturing process creates a gel that is smoother and more elastic, and helps produce a more natural look and prolonged results. The second distinguishing feature of this medical device is that it contains mannitol. Mannitol acts as an antioxidant, combating harmful reactive oxygen species (toxins). Consequently, the effects of inflammatory reactions are reduced and the filler can last longer in the body before being absorbed.
HOW TO INJECT?
Before a treatment session, prepare the proposed areas with proper cleaning and disinfecting methods. Since this medical device does not contain lidocaine, you can apply an anaesthetic for increased comfort during injections. Alternatively, you can opt to use Stylage M with Lidocaine, which contains the anaesthetic lidocaine for added comfort.
Inject Stylage M into the problematic regions via mid to deep dermis injections using the needles provided. Gently massage the area to ensure best product dispersal. Patients should also avoid exposure to extreme temperature (e.g. sauna, hammam, prolonged sun exposure, and cold temperatures) and apply good quality sunscreen to reduce the duration of post-injection inflammatory reactions.
DO NOT INJECT THIS FILLER INTO:
Infected and/or inflamed skin (e.g. herpes breakouts, acne, or rashes);
Skin that is recovering from other dermal treatments (e.g. dermabrasions or chemical peels).
HOW LONG DOES THIS FACIAL FILLER LAST?
One of this skin filler’s advantages is that it provides a fresh and youthful look almost instantly. Moreover, Stylage M is a hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler that boasts of long-lasting results. A single treatment session can provide a smoothing and lifting effect for up to 12 months.
IS THIS PRODUCT SAFE?
Stylage M is made using medical-grade hyaluronic acid of the highest quality. The hyaluronic acid molecules are synthesised via bacteria fermentation in a controlled laboratory environment to ensure a pyrogen-free status. Moreover, hyaluronic acid is a complex sugar molecule found naturally in the human body in large quantities. So, patients can safely receive treatment with minimal risks of foreign body reactions. However, some people are contraindicated from using this filler:
Individuals with a hypersensitivity to hyaluronic acid;
Individuals with a hypersensitivity to mannitol;
Individuals with tendency to develop hypertrophic scarring.
STYLAGE M SIDE EFFECTS
Most of the side effects are due to the injection process itself. The inflammatory reaction is the way the human body respond to traumas. Some frequently-occurring reactions are:
COMMON SIDE EFFECTS:
The abovementioned side effects are mild and do not last more than a few days. With proper aftercare methods, like performing gentle massages and avoiding extreme temperatures, the reactions will subside within a few days. Nevertheless, some patients can still exhibit severe reactions like:
SEVERE OR SERIOUS SIDE EFFECTS:
Educate your patients to get immediate medical attention if the symptoms last more than a few days or if the symptoms worsen.
WHAT IS IT MADE OF?
This is a filler gel of non-animal origin. The gel is processed using the patented IPN-Like Technology to produce a monophasic elastic and durable gel. Hence, the filler material can be injected easily into targeted areas while mannitol ensures quick recovery of the skin.
