Introduced to the UK in approximately 2011 and manufactured by the French company Vivacy Laboratories, Stylage® is the first hyaluronic acid dermal filler with local anaesthetic lidocaine (lignocaine) and an antioxidant, in the form of mannitol, all within one product. The presence of mannitol, the "free radical scavenger", limits the devastating effects of free radicals on the dermis and product injected, thus reducing the risk of post-injection inflammation and preventing the gel's structure degradation.
With their patented IPN-like® Technology (Interpenetrated Network), Vivacy has created something which has two structures—the monophasic A and B structure, and the IPN-like structure. The two are mechanically independent, so Stylage is easy to inject and the increased density of its cross-linking nodes make it long-lasting. This methods requires less BDDE (a common compound used in cross linking hyauronic acids) which the company claims is more effective and results in a safer, longer lasting product.
Stylage® Lips is designed and formulated to meet these requirements. Its innovative composition results in the most effective treatment of this sensitive area. The lip is a very difficult area to treat correctly due to its mobility, vascularization and sensitivity to thermal and mechanical shocks. A product responsive to these constraints is required.
Flexible and very easy to model for easy placement and a sensual and harmonious result.
The duration of the effect of a Stylage® Lips treatment is 6 - 9 months. It's very individual and depends on many factors, such as the patient's skin type and structure, age, lifestyle, the area treated and the injection technique used by the practitioner..
Stylage® Lips is an injectable into and around the labial mucosa according to conventional techniques (retrograde tracing, micro-bolus) with a needle or cannula
