Is there downtime associated with SB?
Due to the use of needles entering the skin throughout this treatment, there is some downtime due to the risk of bruising. This bruising is usually very minimal due to small needle used and depth of injections – however this will vary from patient to patient.
How many treatments/how many mL’s?
Depending on the area being treated this will of course vary. For the face we recommend 1 – 2 mL’s per treatment with 2 treatments required about 6 weeks apart. A very common area that we treat with skin boosters are the hands – this requires 1mL per hand.
How long do results last?
Results can last up to 9 months, however after the initial treatments many patients will have a top up treatment at about 9 – 12 months.
We recommend ceasing any medications or supplements that may thin the blood up to 2 weeks prior to treatment. If you are on prescription medications – this must be cleared by your doctor before ceasing. Doing this will reduce the risk of bruising. Any topical retinol creams (vitamin A) should be ceased 5 days prior to treatment also. Numbing cream will be applied to the area 30 mins prior also.
