With the passage of time, the skin loses its ability to retain moisture. It becomes progressively thin and dehydrated. The ability of creams to hydrate the skin is very limited by the skins protective “tortoise shell”. Injectable moisturisers can help combat this, adding moisture and even increasing collagen production over time. It is a particularly popular treatment to rehydrate the skin of the face, neck and décolletage.
WHICH AREAS CAN BE TREATED?
The most common areas for treatment are:
WHAT CAN THIS TREATMENT BE USED FOR?
CONCEPT COSMETIC MEDICINE uses a very thin sugar-based gel, injected under the tortoise shell of the skin to act as a slow release moisturiser. The progressive hydration this allows, not only makes the skin look and feel wonderful, but creates an environment that allows the skin cells themselves to function at their best. It can be used to treat a number of areas over the body.
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT?
A number of very small injections over the treatment area. A numbing cream is applied before the treatment to reduce the feeling of the needle pricks.
You might experience some slight redness or small welts immediately afterwards, but this will fade within 24-48 hours. Mild bruising to the area is common which can be camouflaged by make-up.
DOES IT HURT?
We can use a specialised numbing cream - our own formulated high potency anaesthetic. You can also choose to use Nitrous Oxide (Happy Gas) during the procedure.
Our doctors can also perform an anaesthetic block in certain areas, like those used at the dentist.
These minimise the discomfort associated with this treatment.
WHAT BRAND DO YOU USE?
Injectable Moisturisers are considered a prescription medication. As a professional clinic, CONCEPT COSMETIC MEDICINE cannot by law name specific brands as it's in breach of Australian advertising law however, all the major brands available in Australia are used at CONCEPT COSMETIC MEDICINE and are of the highest quality.
