What is Derma Veil?
Derma Veil is an injectable filler designed to stimulate collagen formation in the skin. It aims to reduce the effects of aging, or sun exposure on the skin. This treatment restores hydration, improves skin flexibility, and helps to minimize surface imperfections such as wrinkles and folds. It is a lyophilized, low viscosity, non-toxic, bio-absorbable, and biodegradable tissue reconstructive material that supplements the inter-cellular matrix of connective tissue.
How does Derma Veil work?
Derma Veil contains a collagen stimulator composed of Glycolic and Poly-L-lactic Acids. It enhances natural features by adding volume or structure.
What is Derma Veil best suited for?
Derma Veil is best suited for facial sculpting/contouring and the reduction of wrinkles/fine lines. It helps restore structure to aging skin, rejuvenates it, and supports the skin’s health through the stimulation of collagen production.
What to expect during treatment?
During the treatment, patients may experience mild discomfort. An ice pad is typically applied before the injections to minimize pain. Redness and minor bruising may occur at the injection site, but these are normal and temporary. The treatment duration is only around 30-45mins.
What are the treatment areas?
Treatment areas include the face, specifically targeting regions that require volume restoration or contouring, such as the temples, forehead, cheeks and nasolabial folds.
Is the treatment painful?
The treatment involves some discomfort, but it is generally manageable. An ice pad is applied beforehand to mitigate pain during the injection process.
How many sessions are needed to see results?
The number of sessions required varies per individual, with some patients needing only two sessions to see the effects of collagen stimulation.
How soon can I see results from?
Results can be seen significantly after the procedure, with the full effect of collagen stimulation taking place over time. The longevity of Derma Veil’s effects can last up to 2 years, depending on various factors such as the patient’s age, skin condition, overall health, skincare regime and the degree of sun exposure.
What to avoid after the treatment?
Typically patients are suggested to avoid makeup within the first 24 hours, and also strenuous activities, excessive sun exposure, and other factors that could affect the treatment area.
Are there any side effects?
While Derma Veil is considered safe and is typically well-tolerated, some patients may experience minor side effects such as mild pain, swelling, redness, and bruising at the injection site. These side effects are usually temporary and subside on their own within a few days. Patients are also suggested to massage the injected area for 5 days post-treatment to avoid nodule formation. It is important to follow the doctor’s guidance and report any persistent or unusual side effects.
