What do Skin Boosters Treatments Involve?
Each client is advised to attend an initial consultation* with one of our doctors to ensure the treatment will meet your expectations. During the consultation your doctor should discuss any current medication you are taking, immuno-diseases, allergies, previous aesthetic treatments, and if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. On the day you should come 10 minutes before your appointment time to apply local anesthetic cream.
On each visit your doctor will administer a series of tiny, fine-needle injections into the mid to deep dermis (the underlying layer of the skin.) These micro injections will focus on your problem areas. During the procedure, some people experience a certain level of discomfort. Each treatment session usually takes around 15 – 20 mins.
You should expect that there will be some minor bruising and swelling around the treatment areas for a day or two afterwards. The doctor will discuss all of this with you in the consultation* beforehand. Your practitioner may recommend a clean cooling pad to help reduce swelling. Avoid applying make-up on your skin immediately after the treatment. After a rest of about 24 hours, if needed, you can use light make-up to cover any redness or bruising. Avoid excessive sun or extreme cold at least until any initial swelling/ redness resolves.
