Here’s an injectable filler made with hyaluronic acid which promises to deliver not just great volume and definition, but impressive elasticity, too. With most hyaluronic acid fillers, there is a trade-off between how much definition a product can give, and how elastic and stretchable it is.
MaiLi, a new injectable HA filler from Sinclair, uses ‘smart spring science’ so that it is flexible yet retains its shape. That means that it has a good lifting capacity and because it is highly elastic, it moves well with your face.
I went to the Dr Medispa clinic in Loughton, Essex, to visit Dr Munir Somji and try MaiLi for myself. As he explains in the video, when you are using injectable products around the mouth or the cheek area, you really want a product that will stretch but that will also snap back into shape.
What’s different about the product is that it is engineered in an oxygen-free environment, which means the product breaks down less quickly. That in turn means it lasts longer – for a good year in the lips – and also, you need less product in the first place.
