STYLAGE® XL LIDOCAINE is a dermal filler product that is used for facial augmentation and the treatment of moderate to severe wrinkles and folds. It is made of cross-linked hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the body that provides hydration and volume to the skin.
The addition of lidocaine, a local anesthetic, in STYLAGE® XL LIDOCAINE helps to minimize discomfort during the injection process.
STYLAGE® XL LIDOCAINE is designed to provide long-lasting results, with effects typically lasting up to 12 months or more. It is commonly used to enhance the volume and shape of the cheeks, chin, and jawline, as well as to fill in deep wrinkles and folds in the face.
As with any cosmetic treatment, it is important to consult with a qualified and experienced healthcare professional to determine if STYLAGE® XL LIDOCAINE is a suitable option for your specific needs and goals.
Benefits of STYLAGE XL
The benefits of STYLAGE XL include:
- Volume Restoration: It can be used to restore lost volume in areas such as the cheeks, which may become hollow with age or weight loss. By adding volume, it provides a more youthful appearance.
- Wrinkle Reduction: STYLAGE XL can be used to fill in and smooth out deeper wrinkles, like nasolabial folds.
- Biocompatible and Safe: Since hyaluronic acid is a natural component of the skin, STYLAGE fillers are generally well-tolerated. The risk of allergic reactions is minimal.
- Non-permanent: The effects of STYLAGE XL are not permanent, which some individuals prefer. Over time, the body naturally metabolizes the hyaluronic acid. Depending on individual factors, the results can last for several months to over a year.
- Mannitol Presence: STYLAGE fillers contain an antioxidant called mannitol. This antioxidant is believed to reduce the side effects of injections, like swelling. It may also increase the longevity of the treatment results.
- Natural-Looking Results: When administered by an experienced professional, STYLAGE fillers can offer natural-looking results.
- Immediate Results: One of the advantages of dermal fillers like STYLAGE XL is that the results are seen immediately after the treatment.
- Minimal Downtime: Compared to surgical interventions, dermal fillers generally have a short recovery time. Some individuals may experience some swelling, bruising, or redness, but these side effects often resolve within a few days.
- Versatility: STYLAGE XL can be combined with other aesthetic treatments for a comprehensive facial rejuvenation approach.
- Non-Surgical: For those who want to avoid surgical procedures, dermal fillers offer a non-invasive option to address aesthetic concerns.
Areas of Use
STYLAGE® XL LIDOCAINE can be used to address a variety of cosmetic concerns in the face. It is particularly effective in areas where deeper injection is required. Some common areas of use for STYLAGE® XL LIDOCAINE include:
- Cheeks: The filler can be used to add volume and lift to the cheeks, creating a more youthful and defined appearance.
- Chin: STYLAGE® XL LIDOCAINE can be used to augment the chin and improve facial symmetry.
- Jawline: By injecting the filler along the jawline, STYLAGE® XL LIDOCAINE can help to define and contour the jaw for a more sculpted appearance.
- Nasolabial folds: These are the lines that extend from the nose to the corners of the mouth. STYLAGE® XL LIDOCAINE can be used to fill in these folds, creating a smoother and more youthful look.
- Marionette lines: These are the lines that extend downward from the corners of the mouth. STYLAGE® XL LIDOCAINE can be used to soften these lines and restore a more youthful appearance.
It’s important to remember that while STYLAGE® XL LIDOCAINE can provide effective results, it is not suitable for everyone. Before undergoing any cosmetic treatment, it’s important to consult with a qualified healthcare professional to determine the best course of action for your individual needs and goals.
