Each treatment involves a series of microinjections of stabilised hyaluronic acid, a water-attracting substance which helps to maintain hydration in the skin by absorbing water and giving skin firmness and elasticity.
With the use of our specialised injector, it helps to deliver the hyaluronic acid into the skin with precision, in optimal dosage and depth. This also makes the treatment quicker and more comfortable than the manual injecting method./p>
- Hydrates Deep
- Restores Elasticity
- Improves Skin Texture
The procedure typically requires about an hour, depending on the surface areas of your underarms.
Before the treatment, our therapist will gently cleanse the areas to be treated. A topical anaesthetic will be used to numb the area, particularly if you are sensitive to injections.
Before starting, a cold compress will be used to further numb the treated area. Our doctor will start the injector’s process on your skin and move in a grid-like format over the face for maximum coverage. This will take about 20 minutes.
As there will be some bleeding created by the tiny punctures, our therapist will cleanse your face gently and apply an antiseptic cream and sunblock to help protect your skin.
The skin may appear pink or red for an average of 20 – 30 minutes. You can resume normal activities i.e go to work, have meals, shower etc
Q: Does the treatment hurt?
Not really. There is a sensation of ants biting but most patients have described the treatment as tolerable as the topical anesthetic cream helps to minimise pain.
Q: How long does it last?
After the first treatment, you should notice a tightening and firming effect on your skin. After your second and third treatments (as part of the programme), you will experience deep hydration and brightening of your skin.
Q: When will I see results?
Very often, the results look better after 2 – 3 days.
Q: Any side effects from this treatment?
Hyaluronic acid is generally very well tolerated and most patients report minor discomfort. Sometimes after treatment, the area may be red and tender, but this usually improves within a few days. Rarely, allergic reactions to hyaluronic acid have been reported.
