I saw this on someone's blog - and wonder about it. I don't think its in the states yet ?

here is what Bazaar UK says about it-

Unlike typical dermal fillers, a new wave of hyaluronic acid injectables, including Volite from Juvéderm, Profhilo® and Teoxane Redensity 1, promise to work on the condition of the skin.

Dr Wassim Taktouk, an advanced aesthetic doctor specialising in such treatments, tells Bazaar how they're for hydration, over volume.

"Injectable moisture treatments and dermal fillers are both made of hyaluronic acid (HA) which is a natural component of human skin. HA is a water binding molecule that can hold 10,000 times its weight in water and as we get older, our bodies produce less and less of it.

It's just a bunch of marketing language that removes the reader from the basic scientific concept needed to know: VISCOCITY.

High viscosity HA filler is a 'thick' one used to volumetric-ally pronounce specific areas eg the cheeks. So, an HA injectable aimed at 'hydrating' more than 'volumizing' would be a LOW viscosity product as in thinner or more watery; having ability to flow through more tissue area than a thicker product.

A low viscosity product has better flow properties than a high viscosity product which relates to how the product distributes in the soft tissue; stuck in one place, or diffusing into larger areas.

Italia do you know what the longevity of this is supposed to be? Usually the lower the viscosity,, the shorter the duration.

They say around 6 months but for me it was probably around 5 months.

I only have it in the neck so not sure if having it in the face would effect longevity??

The effects are not cumulative, so once it wears off your neck or face reverts back.
