Each patient is different, therefore, results will vary. The duration of the result depends on the product and your lifestyle. In general, cross-linked hyaluronic acid last longer than non-cross-linked. We offer personalized consultation with our certified doctor to help to choose the product based on your skin needs and budget. To enhance the result, it is essential to do the right skin care routine diligently including topical hyaluronic acid, and maintain a healthy lifestyle.
Prior to the treatment, we will apply a strong numbing cream for around 30 minutes to reduce discomfort. We also use a very fine needle. During the procedure, each injection may feel like an ant bite, but most patients think that it is still tolerable. After the procedure, we will apply intensive recovery cream to accelerate the healing process.
There may be some needle marks and bruising after the procedure which will typically recover after 3 to 7 days, but no other serious side effects are to be expected.
