Xela Rederm

reduces pigmentation and improves the texture and tone of the skin

Xela Rederm is a non-crosslinked, high molecular weight hyaluronic acid based injectable product that is combined with succinic acid. It is injected intradermally to hydrate the skin and stimulate collagen and elastin. It also reduces pigmentation and improves the texture and tone of the skin. It is available in three strengths of hyaluronic acid: 1.1%, 1.8%, and 2.2%. The varying strengths are used to treat different areas of the face and body, including the delicate eye area, as well as different levels of skin ageing. It is injected in very small papules over the area you would like to treat using a mesotherapy technique.

  • Redness
  • Some swelling
  • Mild tenderness
  • Potential bruising
  • Itching sensation at the injection sites

Results can be seen immediately and can last for 6 to 9 months, at which point a repeat treatment cycle is recommended. Optimum results will be seen after the full course of treatments. Three treatments are usually recommended, administered at two weekly intervals.

The product may be visible in little papules under the skin for 2-3 days, therefore, you may like to plan treatment for a time when you do not have any major social engagements planned.
