It is important to follow instructions about skinbooster aftercare.
For detailed information, please see the instructions from one of the most popular worldwide providers of dermal fillers.
Immediately after your you may notice a few of the following things:
- Small raised lumps
- Red needle puncture marks
- Itching in the area
These issues above are common and should resolve over the next few days to weeks.
Immediately after the injections you face will be cleaned. You should not touch your face for 6 hours. After this you may clean your skin with water and a gentle cleanser.
If you would like to apply makeup after 6 hours, there are brands like Oxygenetix, which have been created for this purpose, although it is ideal to avoid makeup on the day of the procedure.
Things to avoid:
- Do not expose the area to intense heat (eg solarium or sauna)
- Avoid pressure on the treated areas for the first few nights (i.e. sleep on back of possible)
- Avoid strenuous exercise and alcohol for 24 hours.
- Do not use AHA, Retinols/Vitamin C therapy or oil based make-up for 24 hours
- Avoid facials, facial waxing, chemical peels, IPL or energy based treatments and microdermabrasion for two weeks after treatment. Please check with your physician before undergoing other facial treatments within this time.
Apply a cool compress for 10 minutes every hour on the day of treatment (do not apply ice directly on your skin). A cool compress applied regularly for the first 24 hours after injections may help to reduce the amount of swelling. Some patients use arnica before and after treatment to reduce the swelling.
Patients on aspirin, fish oil or other drugs associated with increased bruising may find their risk increased. For the treatment of bruising, there are over the counter treatments available, including Bruderm and Hirudoid.
Vascular laser is also an option for the treatment of bruising.
Some patients take Bromelaine as a preventative for bruising.
Massage of the areas may or may not be advised by your doctor. Gentle massage may be used once the pain and tenderness has resolved and if advised by your doctor. Mostly the small raised areas will resolve without any treatment.
Your Subsequent Treatments
Skinbooster is optimal with 1-3 treatments. Your second treatment can be booked from 4weeks to 4 months after your first.
Maintenance of skinbooster should be every 6-12 months.
