Hyaluronic acid, which is used in dermal fillers, exists in the skin tissue and helps to hydrate and add volume. It softens wrinkles and lines (such as the nasolabial folds), and gently enhance lips, cheeks and jaws.
Dermal filler injection is one of the fastest-growing non-surgical cosmetic procedures in the world, and also one of the most commonly performed at Q Esthetics. We offer topical anesthesia for filler injections, making it a uniquely gentle procedure. The end results can last up to two years; however, the duration for results differs from person to person, depending on various factors such as age and personal lifestyle.
Types of Dermal Fillers
The full TEOSYAL® range of products consists of unique dermal fillers with differing gel densities and unique properties, each specific to treating different areas of the face and achieving long-lasting results.
The TEOSYAL RHA® products were created by TEOXANE Laboratories according to a patented process, making it possible to meet the specific requirements of mobile facial areas. This technology preserves the hyaluronic acid molecules’ natural characteristics to obtain high-purity gels, close to the natural content of hyaluronic acid in the skin. As a result, people tend to be less reactive to RHA, as the body perceives it as less foreign.
Juvederm® soft replenishing gel filler employs its patented HYLACROSS™ technology to provide one of the highest concentrations of cross-linked hyaluronic acid of any currently available hyaluronic acid dermal filler for long-lasting results.
Additionally, Juvederm® is the first hyaluronic acid dermal filler that has demonstrated its safety and effectiveness in people of colour.

Dermal Fillers F.A.Q.
How long does dermal filler last?
The unique formulation of Teosyal & Juvederm dermal fillers provides results that last up to 2 years for the chin and nose, which is longer than other HA dermal fillers. For areas with more movement, including lips and cheeks, the result can last up to 1 year.
Regular touch-ups of fillers in precise spots are recommended every 6-8 months to maintain the stunning results over many, many years.
How long before I see results?
Results are instant! You will see an immediate improvement in the treatment area. Most people need one treatment to achieve an optimal outcome, and the result can be adjusted by the syringes used in the follow-up treatment if needed.
How long does the filler injection treatment usually take?
The injection process is quick and easy and takes only about 15-30 minutes. You’ll also need to allow time to consult with your doctor prior to treatment, where our specialists will customize the treatment plan based on your face shape and features.
Do I need a allergy test?
No allergy test is required with Teosyal/Juvederm dermal fillers.
What to do before and after your filler treatment
Prior to the appointment, please have something to eat and drink so you don’t arrive on an empty stomach.
Dermal Filler Aftercare:
- Avoid rubbing or massaging the treated area for 4 hours
- Avoid strenuous exercise for 24 hours after filler injections, as it can cause bruising
- Avoid blood thinners and alcoholic beverages for 24 hours after treatment to avoid bruising
- Avoid intense heat the day of treatment, including sauna, hot shower, tanning or other heat-based facial treatments the day of your filler treatment
More before & after care will be discussed during your appointment.
What are possible side effects?
Teosyal/Juvederm dermal fillers are generally well tolerated. Possible side effects are mild to moderate in nature and can last up to 7 days. They may include temporary skin reactions such as redness, tenderness and bruising. The treatment requires minimal downtime and most people return to their normal routine right away.
