Stylage fillers – hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers with antioxidants.
STYLAGE® products consist of an ultra-clear transparent gel of cross-linked hyaluronic acid. The gel is biocompatible and readily becomes integrated into the tissue. It is non-permanent, i.e. it is biodegraded by the body’s own mechanism and will thus disappear naturally over time*.
*The average product duration depends on many factors such as skin type, injection area, patient’s lifestyle, injection technique used by the practitioner.
Protective action of Stylage Fillers
When a needle is inserted into the skin tissue, the inflammatory response includes activation of free radical-generating enzymes on the injection site. Those reactive molecules attack the injected HA and try to break down its overall structure.
Antioxidants, free radical scavenger, are helpful in reducing and preventing damage from free radical reactions because of their ability to neutralize the radical without forming another.
They provide optimal resistance to the gel’s degradation. They also help stabilize physico-chemical properties of the product in the syringe during its storage at room temperature.
Sorbitol, like mannitol, is an antioxidant agent that has been safely used in cosmetics and beauty products for a long time due to its powerful moisturizing properties.
Complementary to the STYLAGE® range with mannitol, sorbitol has been added to STYLAGE® HydroMax formulation, to improve skin hydration and elasticity. As a very hygroscopic antioxidant, sorbitol helps skin retain water to conserve moisture and thereby keeps it looking healthy and youthful.
