FAQ
WHAT IS HYALURONIC ACID?
  • Hyaluronic acid is a main component of the Extracellular Matrix (ECM) of the dermis.  It structures and organises the ECM. Its remarkable properties enable it to maintain the skin's support system, to protect the cells (fibroblasts) and to organise the collagen fibres. Since it can hold up to 1 000 times its weight in water, hyaluronic acid is also recognised for its powerful hydrating properties.
    Naturally present in various body tissue types (skin and cartilage, for example), this exceptional molecule is used in many areas (ophthalmological surgery, osteoarthritis treatment), and especially in aesthetic medicine as a wrinkle filler. It is also used in cosmetics for its hydrating and filling properties.

HOW LONG DO THE EFFECTS OF A HYALURONIC ACID FILLER INJECTION LAST?
  • The results of a filler injection are visible immediately, but how long they last varies depending on the product injected and the patients. Nevertheless, generally speaking, the results last from 6 to 12 months.

WHAT IS MESOTHERAPY?
  • Aesthetic, anti-ageing mesotherapy (or Mesolift) is a treatment that acts biologically and in a general way on both the effects of skin ageing and its causes.
    It is a technique that involves multiple injections into the superficial dermis using a very fine needle. The needles introduce very small quantities of revitalising or nutritive solution
    throughout the wrinkles of the face, neck, bust and the back of the hands. This treatment is both curative and preventive, and can be used on all skin types.
    Five sessions are required in order to produce long-lasting results.

WHAT IS NCTF?
  • NCTF is a poly-revitalising complex of 53 ingredients. This is a Filorga proprietary formula used in mesotherapy and found throughout the company's Cosmetotherapy product range.
    NCTF® is an optimised formula that combines all proven anti-ageing ingredients to date:
    - 12 vitamins to stimulate vital cell functions
    - 23 amino acids to promote the synthesis of the proteins that make up elastin fibres
    - 6 coenzymes to optimise skin metabolism
    - 5 nucleobases to activate cellular communication
    - 6 minerals to preserve the ionic equilibrium of the extracellular matrix
    - 1 antioxidant to fight against free radicals

    The visible, proven benefits of NCTF® on cell cultures (in vitro):
    cellular stimulation (fibroblasts), (+147 %)***
    protection from free radicals, (+90 %)***
    collagen redensification (+256%)***
    slowing of tissue rigidification, (+366%)***

    ***   series of studies performed by an independent cellular and molecular pharmacology research laboratory
    **** In vivo test performed on 40 patients by 19 French physicians according to a protocol of five sessions of micro-injections over a three-month period.

ARE MESOTHERAPY INJECTIONS PAINFUL?
  • Anti-ageing mesotherapy treatments involve very little pain (the needles used are very short and thin). It is possible to have light anaesthesia for more comfort.

ARE PEELS PAINFUL?
  • Glykopeel Filorga peels are practically painless, even though they can cause slight stinging, which is a sign that the glycolic acid is working.

HOW DO CHRONOSPHERES WORK?
  • Chronospheres are progressively released microscopic vectors.  They are multi-lamellar spheres (approximately 0.1 µg in size), the structure of which is comparable to an onion:
    several hundred layers of membranes fit one into another. The exclusive production process is the result of a discovery patented by the CNRS (the French National Centre for Scientific Research): it encapsulates the wide variety of molecules contained in the NCTF®.
    The Chronospheres are non-ionic, which guarantees their high diffusion capacity, including in the dermis.
    When in contact with skin cells, the encapsulated substances are gradually released as the
    layers fall away. The release of ingredients is highly controlled over time and according to the ionic balance of the treated skin; hence, tired or mature skins with severe ionic disequilibrium may benefit from the higher bioavailability of NCTF® and hyaluronic acid.
    The vectorisation of our signature ingredients commonly used in mesotherapy provides intense polyrevitalisation of the skin.
    The action of the Chronospheres®, which directly targets the cells to be treated, is rapid, long lasting and highly adapted to each person's indication.

ARE THE PRODUCTS APPROPRIATE TO ALL SKIN TYPES?
  • The Cosmetotherapy range was designed for all skin types, even the most sensitive ones. Therefore, for certain products, such as the Sleep and Peel product, all you have to do use a product every other evening or, for the Meso-Peel cure, to shorten the time the gel peel mask is left in place.

WHAT IS A PEEL?
  • A chemical peel consists of applying an exfoliating chemical solution to the face, neck or bust to improve the skin's appearance by eliminating the outer layers of the epidermis in a controlled way.
    The purpose is to speed up the skin renewal process to reveal more radiant skin and to diminish wrinkles and dark spots.

Question and Answer for SWISSOATS A3
Q: How do I know if SWISSOATS A3 works?
  • SWISSOATS A3 has been proven to work effectively after being subjected to several clinical studies in Europe, USA, Japan and Singapore. Valid clinical references from reputable international clinical journals are available to evaluate its effectiveness. Furthermore, results from a local study in Singapore were presented at the 2nd World Congress on Aging at Geneva and at Asian Urology Congress in Beijing.

Q: How long should I take SWISSOATS A3 before I can feel its effects?
  • Beneficial effects of SWISSOATS A3 are often evident within two weeks of consumption. However, please note that this is an average period given as every individual takes a different amount of time to feel the effects, i.e. one may feel the effects sooner than another individual.

Q: What is the recommended dose and ideal time of consumption?
  • The recommended dose for men is two caplets a day for an initial 2 weeks, to be taken after meals. Followed by a maintenance dose of one to two caplets per day.

    -The recommended dose for women is two caplets a day for an initial 1 week, to be taken after meals. Followed by a maintenance dose of one to two caplets per day.

    -Ideally, SWISSOATS A3 should be taken after breakfast or lunch to provide you the benefits of peak energy levels throughout the day

Q: Does SWISSOATS A3 cause heatiness?
  • SWISSOATS A3 will not cause heatiness. Heatiness is caused by bacteria or a viral infection that may lead to sore throat etc. In fact, SWISSOATS A3 can prevent sore throats and other infections owing to its powerful antioxidant properties which help to enhance our immune system.

Q: Does SWISSOATS A3 have any negative side-effects?
  • Extensive clinical studies as well as health and safety reports have shown that SWISSOATS A3 does not cause any negative side effects. Moreover, it does not interact with any medications and is safe for consumption.

Q: How is SWISSOATS A3 different from other products containing oats?
  • SWISSOATS A3 differs from other oat-containing products as a result of its exclusive patented combination of its ingredients - Green Oats, Stinging Nettle and Sea Buckthorn fruit. It was researched and developed with the assistance of The Swiss Federal Cereal Research Institute. Furthermore, SWISSOATS A3 is cold pressed from a special strain of oat plants thus giving you a product that is highest in nutrients and quality than extracts pressed from common oat varieties.

    The unique method of cold processing used in SWISSOATS A3 ensures preservation of key compounds in a living state with highest nutrient levels and the best quality extract. Using the latest technology, the special packaging preserves the effective compounds alive for up to 3 years.

Q: Does SWISSOATS A3 cause constipation?
  • The 3 major ingredients in SWISSOATS A3 are special stain of green oats, stinging nettle plant and sea buckthorn fruit extracts. These are valuable source of fibres. As we all know, fibres are useful to assist in bowel movement and to prevent constipation.

Q: Does Swissoats A3 cause weight gain?
  • A key benefit of Swissoats A3 is that it improves your energy levels naturally. This will help you burn energy rather than put on weight. Also, oats, plants and fruit extracts are high in nutrition but do not promote weight gain. This is why oats is one of the ingredients found in SoyDiet, a weight loss health supplement.
