Amalian is a range of mono-phasic and bi-phasic hyaluronic acid based dermal fillers manufactured in Germany by S&V (Skin & Vision)
Technologies and distributed in the UK by 4T Medical.
The current product range includes 9 CE mark certified filler products to target indications for rejuvenation by the treatment of fine lines and wrinkles and deep folds to strong volume augmentation or lip augmentation.
S & V Technologies have been manufacturing implantable medical products for the past 20 years and has entered the dermal filler market with a range of very high quality products based on a its new patented technology called Core-in-shell (CIS) which they claim ensures long term stability of the product in the skin, as well as an easy application through the needle or cannula due to the smoothness of the gel.
The product range includes two distinct sub brands for the mono-phasic and bi-phasic lines, LT for the mono-phasic soft cross-linked hyaluronic acid and expert for the bi-phasic product using the CIS technology of highly cross-linked hyaluronic acid micro-particles inside a non-cross-linked hyaluronic acid shell. Generic name
Mono-phasic range (LT) The mono-phasic hyaluronic acid fillers (amalian LT smoothline, amalian I LT active, amalian II LT intense and amalian LT beauty lips) are homogenous gels of soft cross-linked hyaluronic acid.
Each formulation of amalian LT has been individually customised for the indication of use and are generally suited for treating fine to moderate wrinkles and folds or for lip enhancement and augmentation.
The concentration of hyaluronic acid and cross-linking density of each gel is tuned to target an optimal viscoelastic status for the individual product according to the manufacturer, as well as providing a very smooth injection flow. amalian balance is the non-cross linked product in the mono-phasic line. Bi-phasic range (expert) The amalian expert gel is a highly cross-linked hyaluronic acid which is formulated with their CIS technology.
This unique CIS technology makes amalian different from other products made of cross-linked hyaluronic acid. The “Core-in-Shell” structure forms a stable core of highly cross-linked hyaluronic acid surrounded by long chains of non-cross-linked hyaluronic acid, which form a protective shell.
This structure delays the degradation of hyaluronic acid by hyaluronidase (found naturally in the body which metabolises hyaluronic acid over time) and helps to prolong the effects of the treatment. Due to their specific properties, all amalian expert gels have to be injected in smaller volumes and deeper than traditional hyaluronic acid products.
The CIS technology has a effect on what is known as the viscoelasticity of the gel. When no pressure is applied to it, the gel is viscous (thick) and thus able to augment where it is placed.
When pressure is applied as it is injected into the skin it will liquify under the pressure which make the injection smooth and product delivery easy.
Then, once injected, the hyaluronic acid gel will immediately “bounce back” into its original thick, viscous state to act as a filler within the dermal tissues.
The amalian LT products can be used on top of the amalian expert products if additional correction and treatment is needed more superficially, so a combination treatment may be suggested.
No allergy test required. Is it temporary or permanent? Temporary due to breakdown of hyaluronic acid in the body over time. Licenced status
