Who is authorized to inject dermal fillers ?
Only doctors trained in injection techniques are authorized to inject dermal fillers. In some countries, such as Canada, England or Australia, nurses are also authorized to carry out injections.

How long will the effects of MACDERMOL last ?
The durability varies from 3 to 18 months depending on :
-the type of MACDERMOL used
-the patient’s skin quality
-the patient’s age
-patient’s lifestyle (sun exposure, smoke, stress, alcohol, lack of sleep or nutritional deficiencies may shorten the effects)
-the injection technique of the practitioner
-the severity of the wrinkle to be corrected
-the volume injected

It should be noted that the effectiveness of a hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler increases with the number of treatment courses.

Combinations of MACDERMOL injections with home care treatments such as regimens of oral supplementation and application of topical products will prolong and enhance the effects of dermal filling.

Is MACDERMOL injection painful ?
The injections are relatively painless. The topical application of an anesthetic agent is possible to improve patient comfort.

Are there any adverse events following MACDERMOL injection ?
Following injection, slight redness, swelling or bruising may occur at the site of injection. These temporary reactions which generally subside over 72 hours do not have to be the source of concern and can be simply treated by applying ice and an arnica or vitamin K cream, and easily covered up with makeup.

What are the recommendations to follow prior to MACDERMOL injection ?
During the week prior to injection, patients are strongly recommended not to take high doses of aspirin, vitamin E, anti-inflammatories or anticoagulants. As MACDERMOL is non-allergenic, no allergy test is required.

What are the recommendations to follow after MACDERMOL injection ?
In the two weeks following treatment, patients are advised to avoid sun and strong heat. The topical applications of arnica or vitamin K cream to diminish the potential adverse events, and antioxidants and sunscreen to improve the duration of effect, are possible (ideally use ELAXINE Comfort from Novatex Bioengineering for these two purposes).

Can MACDERMOL be used after a chemical peel or laser treatment?
MACDERMOL can be used after a chemical peel or laser treatment. However, it is recommended to wait two to six weeks until the skin has completely healed and regained its normal appearance.

How effective is MACDERMOL compared to botulinum toxin ?
Botulinum toxin (BT) is not a product of filling. It is a toxin which paralyses the muscles. BT offers many disadvantages:
- Its use must be controlled with much experience and professionalism because allergies, infections and other complications are not rare
- It is indicated only for certain expression lines on the upper third of the face (forehead lines, glabellar, crow's feet)
- There is a loss of expression and the face often appears as inanimate

Nevertheless, certain doctors use BT combined with HA with great success. Clinical studies show that the use of BT in combination with HA is more effective than BT alone.

Can patients with different skin tones be treated with MACDERMOL?
Yes. MACDERMOL is safe and effective in persons of color. There is no increased risk of hyperpigmentation or hypertrophic scarring in patients of color.
