Fillerina is a hyaluronic acid based gel and cream that is formulated to get to the lower layers of the skin where it goes to work to plump the skin from the inside out.
It has been formulated with different sized molecules that go to different layers of the skin and has been grade to suit different skin ages.
While there is an initial improvement after the first application the results continue to improve over the following weeks and last up to 3 months.
Fillerina products come in 3 grades.
All Grades (1, 2, and 3) moisturise, plump, and smoothe the appearance of your skin but they contain different size molecules of hyaluronic acid to address skin concerns at varying ages. So, when choosing a Grade that suits you please consider the following:
Grade 1 has a higher concentration of larger molecules for plumping and hydration and is suitable for younger skins,
Grade 2 has a perfect blend of all size molecules and is suitable for those with mild to moderate fine lines and wrinkles,
Grade 3 has a higher concentration of smaller molecules, which are needed to travel to the deeper layers of the skin for filling moderate or deeper wrinkles.
With all Grades, 6 different sizes of Hyaluronic Acid molecules are absorbed at different layers of the skins tissue ranging from large to small for natural results.
NEW PLUS in Grade 4 & 5 have larger amounts of NEW smaller molecules to penetrate to the deepest layers of the skin for the filling of deep to very deep expression lines and loss of volume. Recommended for very mature skin.
The appearance is of INITIAL age wrinkles, expression lines and facial features with signs of sagging, especially cheekbones and lips.
The appearance is of FINE age wrinkles, expression lines and visible sagging, especially cheekbones and lips.
The appearance is of MODERATE age wrinkles, expression lines and sagging of facial features, especially cheekbones and lips.
Fillerina Lip Volume products are graded in the same way as the products for the face. They are specifically designed for easy application to the lips. They can be applied 4-5 times a day or as needed and over a period of a few weeks you will notice your lips are smoother, slightly fuller and well hydrated.
Tip: make sure you drink plenty of water with Fillerina products as the hyaluronic acid binds with water for the plumping effect
Fillerina is a dermo-cosmetic filler treatment, which is able to obstruct wrinkles and to give more volume to those areas of the face that are more subject to skin sagging with time-passing. For this reason, of course, the product is suitable for those people whose skin presents such kinds of beauty flaws. It is hard to say an age, but we can say that it can be used by women as young as 25-30 years old.
Fillerina Face Treatment supports the filling action on expression lines and age wrinkles of specific areas of the face, cheekbones and oval contour. If necessary, it can be used on neck and décolletage too.
Fillerina is particularly indicated to fill expression lines: vertical wrinkles on the lips are small expression lines, which can be filled up by Fillerina Gel Filler. Its hyaluronic acids will fill the empty spaces caused by wrinkles, which will progressively appear less marked.
It is important not to forget to apply Fillerina. It is important to follow the treatment schedule and its conditions of use. An inconstant application of Fillerina could frustrate the awaited results.
In the course of time, skin cells metabolize Fillerina’s active ingredients, i.e. its hyaluronic acids, and uses them in order to guarantee their filling action. Hyaluronic acid molecules are able to bind water molecules and to promote a progressive filling action of the skin tissue.
Hyaluronic acid filling properties are linked to its capacity of binding water molecules in the tissues. The largest the quantity of water that the hyaluronic acid binds, the most effective its capacity of plumping up tissues will be: this way it will fill wrinkles and empty areas of the face. By providing water to the organism, we provide water to cutaneous tissues too: this presence will be captured by Fillerina hyaluronic acid.
Fillerina’s different grades indicate different concentrations of active ingredients, thus, thanks to the pharmacist’s advice, the consumer will have the possibility of choosing which treatment fits best to his personal conditions concerning skin depressions (wrinkles) and volume needs (cheekbones and lips).
The difference is in the distribution of the different sizes of HA molecules in each grade. Grade 1 has a higher % of the larger sizes which penetrate the top layers of the skin, absorb more moisture from the atmosphere, mainly provide volume in the cheekbones and lips and beautiful moisturized skin. Grade 3 has a higher % or the smaller sizes which are needed to penetrate deep into all layers of the skin and build upon each other to gradually smooth out deep wrinkles and correct sagging aging skin. Grade 2 is a nice even mix to benefit the middle range of skin. Grade 3 is wasted and will not work as well on a person who does not have a lot of deep wrinkles and would like more volume. The reason for the price difference is the cost of producing the smaller molecules is higher, not because it is stronger or better.
Yes, depending on the needs of the entire face. Treatments can also be combined with other Grade Creams.
If the treatment causes minor breakouts, this is probably from the Nourishing Film, not the Replenishing Gel. A suggestion is to use less or stop using the Nourishing Film but continue the 14 days with the Gel. If a major rash or reaction is caused, which is very unusual, stop using the product. If the person has allergies or very sensitive skin as with any skin care products, the product should be tested on a small area first.
Fillerina filling treatment must be used every day for 14 days. Fillerina is a cosmetic treatment based on hyaluronic acids with different molecular weights, which helps fill wrinkles, expression lines and empty areas of the face. Because of its specific nature – it is a cosmetic treatment for topical use – its effects are temporary. If you wish to maintain the achieved results, we recommend to repeat the treatment every 3-4 months. Between a cycle and the other, you can apply Fillerina Day and Night Creams.
Rinse the applicator in warm water after use each night and allow it to air dry, keep the rubber tip on the end of the applicator when not in use. The tip of the applicator screws on and off, some come loose during shipping. Make customers aware of this so they do not think the applicator is broken.
Once opened, Fillerina Gel and Nourishing Film should be room-temperature stored, inside their original bottles, which should be closed by means of the provided tips.
Sunlamps are extremely stressful for our skin, which consequently will be more inclined to dehydration and wrinkle formation. This is why, in order to promote Fillerina’s best cosmetic results, we advise not to undergo sunlamps. A frequent facial cleansing, instead, can support the deep penetration of hyaluronic acids into the skin and Fillerina’s positive effects, as the skin will be free from impurities and an excess of sebum.
Fillerina can be used during pregnancy and breastfeeding.
After Fillerina application you can sun, it being understood that a long exposure requires the application of a sunscreen containing specific and appropriate UV protective filters and in line with your own photo type.
If your skin presents sebum and acne, it is advisable to apply a gentle face cleanser before Fillerina application. HA can improve your skin’s moisture content and at the same time strengthen skin’s barrier. A healthy barrier looks and feels softer, smoother and plumper, all hallmarks of younger looking skin. Sun damage, acne, sensitive skin and rosacea, can lead to a damaged barrier, so repairing the skins barrier with skin-identical ingredients, like HA can work towards fixing those issues or minimizing them. HA is a lightweight texture which is not an issue for oily skin and is gentle enough for sensitive skin.
HA also provides antioxidant defence against free-radical damage and reduces inflammation.
Fillerina helps in filling and fading scars, and also prevents scar formation.
Yes, other skin creams can be used with Fillerina. Fillerina skins creams are recommended as they also have the 6 patented HA molecules and will increase the results during the 14-day treatment and after treatment.
It is recommended not to use another night cream during the 14-day treatment, the nourishing film should provide enough moisturizer.
Retin A is an exfoliate and is not recommended during the 14-day treatment, it is actually good to take a break occasionally from Retin A. Once the treatment is completed, you can continue the Retin A. However, if used with Fillerina day or night cream, always use the Fillerina product first, allow the 6 HA molecules to absorb into the skin tissues for a few minutes and then apply other product on top. Other products only benefit the top layers of our skin therefore you want to create a layering effect by using Fillerina on clean skin first.
The formula of the Lip Plump was developed specifically for the texture of the lip skin. It is not meant to work around the eye area. It is a thinner formula that will not work as well on other areas of the face.
