Xela Rederm by Hyalual is a redermalization treatment that provides a powerful visual anti-aging and skin renewal effect with long-term results. It aims to re-organise as well as stimulate the production of collagen and elastin fibres in your skin by introducing hyaluronic acid and succinic acid in the skin cells.
Other injectable treatments target the tissue just beneath your skin – whereas Xela Rederm is injected directly into the dermis itself – treating the actual problem rather than just plumping your skin from below.
You can have your face, neck, décollete and hands treated. Treatments around your eyes can address fine lines, thinning skin and dark circles. You could also opt to treat sagging skin around your stomach and buttocks; scars and stretch marks.
What is Redermalization?
The three basic mechanisms that age your skin:
- The slowing down of metabolic processes in the skin.
- The accumulation of free radicals.
- Impairment in the ability of the skin to retain water.
Redermalization is an innovative method for efficient aging prevention and skin restoration which affects all the three main skin aging mechanisms:
- Regulates biochemical and physiological processes in cells
- Efficiently blocks free radicals
- Prevents skin dehydration
Redermalization is skin recreation by restoring the dermis.
Redermalization will give your skin:
- A more youthful look
- Improved complexion
- Improved elasticity
- Reduced wrinkle depth and length
- Improved skin tone and decrease in pigmentation
- Improved hydration
- Reduced visibility of acne scarring and stretch-marks
How Does The Xela Rederm Treatment Work On My Skin?
Xela Rederm is available in three strengths that are used to treat different areas of the face and body, and different levels of skin ageing.
The treatment is not harmful or toxic and it is hypoallergenic.
For optimal results, we recommend 3-6 treatments, dependent on the skin quality, with 2-3 weeks between each session. Each treatment takes about 30-60 minutes. Recovery period is 1-2 days.
The treatment explained
Your skin care therapist will apply a numbing cream to your skin before the procedure to avoid any discomfort.
Xela Rederm is then injected intradermally in very small papules over the area you want to treat.
Hyaluronic acid has the ability to replenish moisture that is crucial to having younger-looking, supple skin. At the same time, it revitalizes your skin’s outer layers so they look and feel softer, smoother, and glowingly hydrated to instantly improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Succinic acid blocks free radicals and has the effect of an antioxidant for your skin with powerful restorative properties. It also stimulates the production of collagen and elastin at a cellular level.
Succinic acid has further been clinically proven to reduce pigmentation, making it an excellent treatment for improving uneven skin colour. It is also a buffer for the HA and helps to hold it, and carry it for longer within the skin.
You will experience an overall effect of improved skin quality, better hydration and an even skin tone.
What should I expect after the treatment?
Directly after the treatment, you will see tiny bumps where the product has been injected. These bumps disappear over a few hours once they are absorbed into the deeper layers of your skin. The result is plumper, firmer and more hydrated skin. Apart from the bumps, there may be some mild redness and a chance of some small bruises.
The Xela Rederm treatment is temporary. Our bodies naturally metaboliza hyaluronic acidover time. The changes in the texture of your skin, and the increased production of collagen and elastin produced by treatment are also susceptible to normal ageing processes.
Results should last up to 8 months.
Are there any side effects?
The most common side effects include temporary bumps under the skin (as mentioned above), light bruising, pain tenderness, swelling, itching and/or discolouration. These effects are mild or moderate in nature and usually last less than 7 days.
Who should not use this treatment?
You should let your skin care therapist know if you:
- are pregnant or breast feeding
- had a hypersensitivity reaction to hyaluronic acid (HA) or any other injectable cosmetic dermal filler
- have severe allergies
- have active cold sores
- are taking blood thinning medication
- have active herpes or an acute or chronic skin diseases
