Teosyal vs Juvederm: Similarities and Differences Reviewed

Teosyal is a range of completely synthetic and biodegradable hyaluronic acid-based fillers that are manufactured by Teoxane Laboratories, a leading Swiss pharmaceutical company.

This brand consists of two collections of fillers that are differentiated by the formulations of the injectable gels and the aesthetic imperfections that they are indicated for. A detailed list of filler collections for Teosyal brand is explained below:

  • Teosyal PureSense: This collection includes Global Action, Deep Lines, Ultra Deep, Ultimate, and Kiss.
  • Teosyal RHA (Resilient Hyaluronic Acid): This collection is made up of Teosyal RHA 1, RHA 2, RHA 3, and RHA 4.

Teoxane Laboratories also manufactures Teosyal Meso, a mesotherapy filler that consists of a high concentration of non-cross-linked hyaluronic acid. It is meant to be injected into the superficial dermis layer of the skin in order to rehydrate and rejuvenate the skin. Besides that, Teosyal has created the first cordless, motorized hyaluronic acid injection system. This innovative medical device—which is known as Teosyal Pen—injects hyaluronic acid gel slowly into delicate areas with very little risk of pain, redness, and bleeding. As for Juvederm, it is also a brand of non-animal-based hyaluronic acid soft tissue implants that are designed to last for a long period of time once injected into the skin. This brand is manufactured by Allergan and is comprised of two families of fillers that are differentiated by the processing technology used and the resulting texture of implants. These two families are described below:

  • Juvederm Ultra: This collection is made up of Ultra Smile, Ultra 2 (also known as Ultra XC), Ultra 3 (also known as Ultra Plus XC), and Ultra 4.
  • Juvederm Vycross: This collection is made up of Juvederm Volite, Volbella, Volift, and Voluma.

Another filler called Juvederm Hydrate is a biorevitalizing filler that is made of cross-linked hyaluronic acid gel that is integrated with antioxidant mannitol; in many respects, it is similar to Teosyal Meso.

Both brands of soft tissue implants can be used to correct a wide variety of skin problems, including dullness, dehydration, fine lines, severe wrinkles, and sunken facial features.   

Similarities between the processing technologies used to manufacture Teosyal and Juvederm fillers

The numerous brands of dermal fillers available on the market are set apart from each other by the type of material and processing technology used to manufacture them. In this regard, Teosyal PureSense fillers are made of highly pure hyaluronic acid gels that have an extremely low amount of protein and low bacterial endotoxin levels. These implants are also processed to have a monophasic and homogenous texture. As for Teosyal RHA fillers, they are made from long chains of hyaluronic acid that are cross-linked and stabilized via the patented Preserved Network method. This technology also ensures that small amounts of 1,4-butanediol diglycidyl ether (BDDE) is used.

The aesthetic fillers from the Juvederm Ultra collection are manufactured using Hylacross Technology, which ensures that the injectable gels have a smooth consistency without any granular texture. The other collection of fillers from Juvederm, the Vycross range, is, as its name suggests, is processed using Vycross Technology. This exceptional technology reticulates a high percentage (90%) of low molecular weight hyaluronic acid molecules and a low percentage (10%) of high molecular weight hyaluronic acid molecules, which results in fillers that are very cohesive and malleable.

Unique selling point of each Teosyal and Juvederm collection

Due to the extremely low bacterial endotoxin levels and amount of protein in Teosyal PureSense fillers, they are very safe and are able to resist premature degradation caused by free radical damage. Teosyal RHA fillers, on the other hand, are famed for their high stretchability. Once injected into the skin, the fillers from this collection can stretch to accommodate various facial movements and withstand premature degradation. Most importantly, certain Teosyal fillers are packaged in syringes that are fitted with 25G Ultra-Thin Wall needles, which reduce pain and patient trauma during treatment sessions. Not only that, the double bevel design and lubrication of Ultra-Thin Wall needles facilitate improved skin penetration and better filler placement. This innovative needle design benefits patients and practitioners, as the latter has to use less force to inject prefilled syringes with this needle design into the skin. On the other hand, Juvederm Ultra and Vycross collections are renowned for their long-lasting fillers that provide natural-looking results. Most Juvederm injectable implants, except for Juvederm Hydrate, are proven to last up to a year in most patients.
