Teosyal and Juvederm
Teosyal is available in Canada and Europe, not in the US (at least it is not US FDA approved). Teosyal is a hyaluronic acid-based filler, similar to Juvederm. The manufacturers of Teosyal claim the filler lasts 1-2 years. I recommend against saving product to be injected in the future not only because there are a lot of medico-legal issues associated with the practice, but hyaluronic acid fillers can dry out pretty quickly after opening (as early as 2-3 weeks). Even partially dried out filler does not have the same flow properties as fresh product.
