As the skin ages it loses some of its collagen and elastin. This process can be accelerated by exposure to sun, smoking and poor diet. The skin becomes thinner and as it does so lines and folds develop. In other words the supporting scaffold of the skin is lost.
Dermal fillers are non-surgical treatments used to counteract this process of ageing. They are used to replace volume particularly in lines and folds that are present at rest, rather than dynamic wrinkles, which are the result of muscle movement. (these are best treated with anti-wrinkle treatment BOTOX®.)
Dermal fillers are used in areas of the face where it needs to be plumped up again and made to look firmer. They can be used to accentuate, add volume, or define the border around the lips. They can also be used to shape cheeks to produce more definition. One of the most common procedures is in helping to fill out the lines from the nose to the corners of the mouth (nasolabial lines).
There are a great number of Dermal fillers on the market. Bath Spa Beauty only uses non-permanent fillers as we believe that the use of permanent fillers carries a risk of scar formation.
TEOSYAL® PureSense – Hyaluronic acid based, resorbable, and of non-animal origin has a range of Dermal filler products offering a “solution to problem” treatment. Teoxane’s commitment to supply the best hyaluronic acid ensures absolute product quality and safety for patients and guarantees that its gels are extremely pure which allows perfect integration into the skin.
Teosyal Dermal filler
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance that helps to keep human skin supple, moisturized and youthful. With age, the skins hyaluronic acid levels begin to drop which leads to a more brittle skin allowing wrinkles and facial folds to etch their way into the face.
Teosyal®, is a hyaluronic acid-based Dermal filler that helps to replenish the skins natural supply by strategically encouraging the skins hyaluronic acid producing abilities.
- Trials show that the most of the Teosyal® range is effective for an average of 6 to 9 months for the treatment of wrinkles.

Each treatment is administered by injection with added anaesthetic allowing a smooth injection with minimal discomfort. The results are immediate and natural; you can remodel your face by adding volume, plump up lines, redefine lips and rehydrate your skin.
The cumulative effect of regular sessions produces an optimum effective correction. Treatment with Dermal fillers takes a little longer than anti wrinkle treatments.
We use local anaesthetic to numb the area prior to using the fillers, this means that the treatment can be carried out without discomfort at all and avoids using numbing creams, which tend not to be very effective.
A very small percentage of people may have a reaction to any aesthetic procedure, the most common is among persons who suffer from cold sores of the face. If you get cold sores we will first prescribe or advise you to use a medicine called Acyclovir to start taking this the day before you have dermal filler.
Treatment with fillers will sometimes take more than one visit, and the volume of product used can vary between individuals. Generally the fillers last between six and nine months, but this is dependent upon the product used.
