  • Do anti-wrinkle cosmetic injectables hurt?
    Everyone experiences pain differently and has different pain thresholds. However, when it comes to anti-wrinkle injections, most people compare the sensation of the face injections to a quick prick. There is a slight pinching feeling, but it only lasts for a few seconds. At Skinnovations Cosmetic Laser Med Centre, anti-wrinkle treatments require no anaesthetic. However, a topical anaesthetic can be used for dermal fillers if needed.

  • How long do anti-wrinkle cosmetic injectable results last?
    Anti-wrinkle injections start to work 2-3 days after the injection and reach their full effect within 7-14 days. The effects can typically last for up to 3-4 months depending on the individual.
  • Can I get anti-wrinkle cosmetic injectable treatments while pregnant?
    No. Your safety is our main concern and for this reason, we do not treat clients who are pregnant. We advise against all cosmetic injectable treatments whilst pregnant simply out of precaution and due to the lack of information available on cosmetic injectable treatment effects on the fetus.
  • What areas can be treated with anti-wrinkle injections?
    The most common treatment areas for wrinkle reduction are crow’s feet (lines around the outer eyes), glabella (between the eyes) and the forehead. Other areas including ‘bunny lines’ (lines on the nose), jaw-line, chin and neck may also be treated and at Skinnovations Cosmetic Laser Med Centre, we have experienced practitioners who treat even the most complex areas. Muscle relaxants can even be used to treat excessive sweating and jaw grinding.
  • What areas can be treated?
    Dermal fillers can be used to smooth away facial lines and wrinkles, create fuller lips and shape facial contours, such as cheeks, jawline and chin, and revitalise the skin. The most common areas treated are nose to mouth lines (the nasolabial folds), lips (adding volume and shape), cheeks and jawline.
  • Are there any side effects after having Dermal Fillers?
    The most common side effects occur within 24 hours or immediately post treatment. These include: swelling, bruising, redness and tenderness. Immediate side effects usually disappear within days. However, depending on the type of dermal filler used, it can take a few weeks. All our injectors are available for follow-up consultations if you have any concerns.
  • How long do Dermal Fillers last?
    Duration depends on many factors, such as the individual’s skin type, skin condition, lifestyle and age – as well as the type and amount of product used. After the initial treatment, follow-up sessions are normally recommended around every 6 to 12 months depending on the individual and the product used. A treatment of the lips can last up to six months. Dermal fillers can last up to three to six months and in some cases longer. Lips are a high activity area as we use them all the time, this can impact how long the results will last. Please speak to your Cosmetic Injector about this.
  • Do Dermal Fillers hurt?
    Dermal Fillers feel like a slight pinch, and you may experience slight pressure or a ‘stinging’ sensation as the product is being injected. pain is such a personal and subjective thing. it all depends on your tolerance and on the treatment area

  • Can I get 1/2ml of lip filler?
    You can and it's charged at half the cost of 1ml.

  • How will my lips look and feel after lip filler?
    Lip filler results are visible straight away. You may experience some swelling and bruising for 1-5 days, however, this is completely normal after a cosmetic injectable treatment. During this time, an ice pack should be applied to the area to reduce any swelling/bruising. Lumps and bumps are also common after having your lips treated which is why it’s important to ensure you attend your complimentary review. A complimentary post-treatment review is available to all injectable clients. It not only gives the Injector an opportunity to check in with the results of the treatment, but it also gives you, the client, an opportunity to ask any lingering queries you may have.
  • What do I need to do to prepare for my Laser Hair Removal appointment?
    Before your appointment, we ask that you Shave the area between 12-24 hours before your treatment Avoid chemical peels or laser resurfacing Exfoliate to remove any dead skin build up Ensure no residue fake tan is present on the skin Avoid excessive sun exposure on area being treated two weeks prior (including solariums or tanning drugs) Avoid using topical creams/moisturisers, perfumes to the area being treated before appointment Do not wax or pluck hairs four weeks prior to laser treatment
  • How often do I need to get Laser Hair Removal?
    Depending on your hair and skin type and the area being treated, you will usually require treatments at 2 to 4 week intervals. Each part of the body has a different hair growing cycle, so the hair loss will vary depending on what phase your follicles are in at the time of treatment. However at least 6 to 8 treatments are required for a permanent result.
  • Does Laser Hair Removal hurt?
    One of the benefits of laser hair removal is that the treatment is virtually painless, especially compared to waxing. Each pulse lasts less than second, producing a slight tingling feeling. In particularly sensitive areas, such as the upper lip, it may feel like a rubber band snap on the skin. Our advanced cooling machines used in all laser treatments cools your skin before, during and post treatment to minimise any discomfort.
  • What is the minimum age for Laser Hair Removal?
    At Skinnovations Cosmetic Laser Med Centre, we recommend that Laser Hair Removal clients undergoing Laser Hair Removal treatments are 18 years or older. This ensures optimal treatment results. Prior to the age of 18 years, hair growth has not fully developed due to changing hormonal levels. In certain instances, we can provide Laser Hair Removal treatments to clients 12 years and over. However, for clients 18 years and under, a parent or guardian is required at the clinic for your first treatment. Your parent or guardian is required to sign a consent form and be present in the consultation to ensure they understand the procedure and aftercare. Note, it is optional for parents and guardians to be in the treatment room for the first treatment.
  • Can I still get Laser Hair Removal if I am pregnant/breastfeeding?
    There are no conclusive studies on laser being safe or unsafe for pregnant or breastfeeding women. If you have any concerns about proceeding with Laser Hair Removal please consult your doctor.

    Using our medical grade equipment, our fully trained laser technicians can target any hair colour.
  • Can laser hair removal be performed on all skin tones?
    Yes, our medical grade lasers offer safe and effective hair reduction for clients with all skin types.
  • What is a Fractional CO2 laser treatment?
    The CO2 Fractional resurfacing laser is carbon dioxide laser which precisely removes deep outer layers of damaged skin and stimulates the regeneration of healthy skin underneath. The CO2 treats fine to moderately deep wrinkles, photo damage, scarring, skin tone, texture, crepiness and laxity.
  • How does Fractional CO2 laser work?
    The light from a CO2 laser system is highly effective for revitalization of micro-ablative skin. Typically, the CO2 laser beam is pixelated into thousands of small rods of light by the fractional CO2 laser. These micro beams of light hit the layers of skin in depth. They focus at a specific portion of the skin surface at one time this and heals the skin quickly. They help in curing the skin by pushing out the old skin damaged by the sun and replacing it with the fresh skin. The indirect damage from heat help in reducing the production of collagen from the skin. This treatment tightens the skin and stimulates the natural production of collagen. It also improves the skin tone and texture by reducing the wrinkles, large pores, small and large acne scars and age marks on the hands and face. As a result, you get younger looking and fresher skin.
  • What is fractional laser treatment used to treat?
    -Facial lines and wrinkles (rhytides) -Sun damage -Skin pigmentation associated with photoageing -Surgical and acne scarring. Although fractional laser treatment has been advocated in the treatment of pigmentation disorders such as melasma, the treatment itself can lead to postinflammatory pigmentation. Fractional laser treatment can be used on any part of the body but is particularly useful on the neck, chest and hands when compared to traditional ablative modalities. Fractional laser treatment may also be of benefit for poikiloderma of Civatte and stretch marks. Fractional laser treatment can be used in all skin types and patients, but techniques vary depending on patient age, skin type, sun exposure and body location. Fractional laser treatment can be combined with surgery and other skin treatments.
    You will experience a burning sensation following treatment and swelling of the face will develop over the next 24 hours. The burning sensation takes 24-48 hours to resolve. Over the next three to four days the face will feel tight and swollen. There can be weeping of yellowish serous fluid for up to 4 days after the procedure. Crusts may develop over the first few days post procedure and must not be removed. They will come away leaving fresh new skin underneath as healing continues. It is not unusual to experience some degree of itching between 4-6 days following the treatment. Dr Hussein will advise on how to manage this. At the end of 10 days the skin will have largely healed. There should be no further crusted areas. The skin will remain pink and this will settle progressively over the following weeks. It will usually be safe to return to a simple skin care regime 10 days post treatment. Never pick or remove skin flakes or crusts. Allow them to shed naturally. Picking will increase the likelihood of scarring. Please note the time periods above may vary according to the strength of treatment. For example the duration of crusting may be longer in more aggressive treatments. You will be issued with a skincare pack containing dermol facewash, CU3 cream and a pack of sterile gauze on completion of the procedure. Skincare day 1 to day 10 It is imperative that you adhere strictly to the following skin care routine after CO2 laser treatment. The skin barrier has been temporarily impaired by the laser. Premature application of your normal skincare products will result in inflammation, irritation, slow healing and may increase the risk of pigmentation problems and/or scarring. You are more susceptible to contact irritant and allergic dermatitis during this first 14 day period. After the first 10 days have elapsed you must use a sunscreen SPF50 for the following 6 weeks. You must minimise your sun exposure at all times throughout the treatment and for 6 weeks after treatment. Morning Wash the face in the morning with Dermol face wash and allow to air dry OR pat dry gently with a clean face towel or clean kitchen roll (DO NOT RUB). Apply CU3 barrier cream to the face. This will protect the skin and stop it from drying out while the epidermal barrier is healing. Take any antiviral and/or antibiotic tablets according to instructions that Dr Hussein may have prescribed Complete the course of medication. Throughout the day Top up the CU3 cream at any point when the skin starts to feel dry and tight. This should be at least twice throughout the day. Allowing the skin to become too dry will slow the healing process. Evening Repeat steps 1 & 2 (and step 3 if your Doctor has prescribed the medication) before going to bed. Dr Hussein will review you at 2 weeks following treatment but do not hesitate to contact him before this if you need earlier advice/review/information. Remember to send healing ‘selfie’ photos at least every two days so that Dr Hussein can monitor your healing. Use the details on the contact card. Skincare – Day 10 to week 6 post treatment Your skin will have healed sufficiently by day 10 after treatment. You will now be able to return to work. You will notice that the skin will still be red. This redness will settle over the next 6-12 weeks. During this period your skin will be more sensitive than normal. It is important that very mild cleansers, moisturizers and make-up be used in this period. Some products contain acetyl alcohol, retinoids and alpha hydroxy acids that can potentially irritate the skin and delay healing. These should be avoided or minimised. Sunscreen is also very important. High factor (SPF30+) is ideal. Sunscreens that contain physical filters rather than chemical filters are preferred as they are less likely to irritate the skin. Physical barrier sunscreens are sometimes less acceptable because they leave a prominent white residue on the skin. I have recommended a basic skincare regime that can be used during this period that will minimise any irritation to the skin, speed the healing process and optimize the results of your CO2 laser treatment.
  • How long does a CO2 laser treatment take?
    The exact time depends on the area that is being treated; However, typically it takes two hours or less to complete. This timeframe includes an additional 30 minutes for topical numbing to be applied prior to treatment.
  • Are there any side effects or possible risks to A co2 laser treatment?
    Like any medical procedure, there are risks associated with a co2 laser treatment. During your consultation your provider will make an assessment to ensure that you are the right candidate for the co2 laser treatment.
  • Who is NOT a candidate for a Co2 laser treatment?
    An CO2 laser treatment may not be safe for those with certain health problems. An CO2 laser treatment is not recommended for patients who are currently taking Accutane. Those with a history of difficulty healing or scarring are not candidates, as well as those with bleeding disorders. Those who are pregnant or breastfeeding are not a candidate for the CO2 laser.
  • Is there any downtime associated with an CO2 laser treatment?
    Yes, there is downtime associated with a CO2 laser treatment. Plan for 7-10 days for healing before you can go out in public. Your skin will scab and peel 2-7 days after treatment, and will be pink for 3-4 weeks. The exact healing time varies between person to person.
  • What is Body SCULPT?
    It is a non-invasive approved treatment to build and strengthen muscle and improve tone in the abdomen, buttocks, thighs and arms. A 30-minute treatment is equivalent to 20,000 sit ups or squats. It is the only procedure to help both women and men build muscle to sculpt their bodies. It can tone and tighten the abdomen and is the world’s first non-invasive buttock lifting procedure. The current handpiece treats the abdomen, buttocks and thighs. The only place in town to have a new curved smaller handpiece for the biceps, triceps, calves and flanks (love handles).
  • How does Body sculpt work?
    The non-invasive HIFEM (High-Intensity Focused Electromagnetic) technology induces supramaximal muscle contractions much stronger and faster than achievable through voluntary exercise. Four 30- minute treatments, performed at least 2 days apart, are recommended for best results, though more treatments can improve the area further. The vigorous contractions trigger a metabolic change in the overlying fat that leads to destruction of a percentage of the fat cells. Seven published studies showed an average of 16% increased muscle thickness and 19% decreased fat thickness in the abdomen. The studies also demonstrated over 10% reduction in the diastasis recti- the separation between the left and right abdomen muscles that is stretched by pregnancy.
  • Am I a good candidate for Body sculpting?
    Anyone who wants to strengthen their abdominal, buttock or thigh muscles can benefit from the EMSCULPT procedure. The best candidates, who are most likely to achieve visible, satisfying results, are of normal weight, exercise regularly, and eat a healthy diet.
  • What does it feel like?
    The procedure feels like an intensive workout, as your muscles are undergoing a vigorous series of contractions every few minutes for a total of 30 minutes. There is also a prickling sensation during the treatment. The variable level is increased by the Specialist during the course of the treatment based on your feedback. The level is gradually increased over the series of the treatments. You can lay down, relax, watch TV and talk during the treatment. Use of portable electronic devices is not recommended since proximity to the SCULPT applicator may cause damage to delicate electronics.
  • Is there any downtime?
    It is non-invasive and requires no recovery time or any pre/post treatment preparation or downtime.
  • How soon will I see results?
    Tangible results are felt right after the treatment, similar to an intensive workout of the target area muscles. Positive visible results are usually seen two to four weeks after the last session in the series of treatments. The underlying muscles require time to adapt and strengthen. Fat cells that are destroyed through apoptosis during the series of treatments are gradually and naturally eliminated by the body. Visible results continue to improve for weeks to months after the treatment series.The muscles treated will feel stronger with each treatment, with increased muscle mass resulting about 2-4 weeks after the 4 treatment series. Improvement of the overlying fat is appreciable by about 3 months after the series is completed. We recommend a good exercise regimen to maintain results. Treatments at 6 month intervals are useful to maintain results.
  • How many treatments are needed to see results?
    The number of treatments required is dependent on your desired results and where you are starting in terms of muscle tone and undesirable fat. One series of Body SCULPT treatment will increase muscle up to 16% and reduce fat by up to 19% in the treated area. Many people are pleased with the results of just one series of Body SCULPT treatment. Some people feel that they need more than one series of treatment to achieve their desired results. During your free consultation, one of our Body SCULPT specialists will provide answers regarding how many treatments you may need to achieve your goals in the treated area.
  • You CANNOT have Body Sculpt if you have the following conditions.
    Pregnancy or breastfeeding Cardiac pacemaker, defibrillator, implanted neurostimulator, drug pump or electronic implanted device Metal rods, pins, plates, metal IUD or orthopedic implants/joints Pulmonary insufficiency, cardiac disorders, epilepsy or active malignancy Bleeding disorders, or taking blood thinners History of hernia repair with mesh, or any recent surgical procedure in the area Any injury, damage or tear to muscle or soft tissue in the area to be treated including active hernia You may not use the device near your chest, head or neck You are under 18 years old
  • Who can benefit from Body Sculpt?
    It is the ideal treatment for anyone looking to build muscle and reduce fat to get defined abs or a non-invasive booty lift. If you are frustrated by fad exercises or long hours in the gym and feel like you could use some help achieving your desired results, it is the perfect solution for you. Our Specialists will work with you on the best treatment plan tailored to your individual needs. Treatment plans are customized to achieve the results you desire.

  • Is pico safe?
    Pico's ultra-fast pulses and specialized wavelengths work together to minimize the amount of heat that is transferred. Less heat means less damage to surrounding skin, less risk of injury, and less recovery time. If you are prone to cold sores, speak to your healthcare provider about oral medication to prevent an outbreak after laser treatment.
  • What does the procedure feels like?
    Most people experience very little discomfort and describe skin revitalization treatments as feeling like the snapping of a rubber band. Because tattoo removal treatments use more energy, patients may experience more discomfort. An air-based skin cooler or numbing cream may be used to ensure any procedure is easily tolerable.
  • Do I have to avoid the sun before or after treatments?
    To protect ourself from the sun, the body produces extra melanin, causing the skin to tan. Since Pico targets melanin to remove excess pigment, a heavy tan may interfere with treatment. After laser treatments, the skin is more vulnerable to sunlight so minimizing sun exposure and use of SPF30+ sunscreen is recommended. Ideally the treated skin should be protected from direct sunlight for two weeks before and after treatment.
  • How many treatments are necessary?
    The number of Pico treatments for UNWANTED PIGMENTATION will vary depending on the condition being treated and how each individual responds. See us for an evaluation to provide you with a personalized plan. The number of treatments for SKIN REVITALISATION is largely dependent on the clinical condition being addressed but 2-5 treatments are common. For TATTOO REMOVAL, the size, location and density of ink play important roles in how quickly clearance can be achieved, but 4-10 treatments is common for modern tattoos.
  • How long do results last?
    Tattoo removal and acne scar results are permanent. Skin revitalization treatment results are long lasting, but some pigment conditions can be recurrent. Some patients find that a Pico treatment once or twice a year can help prevent accumulation of pigment and slow the appearance of wrinkles.
  • What is the recovery time ?
    Recovery times are dependent on the condition being treated and each patient’s ability to heal. Typical treatment intervals are 2-6 weeks for pigmented lesions and 6-8 weeks for tattoo removal. Treatments for acne scars and wrinkles using the Focus lens array can be performed every 3-4 weeks. Contact us for a personalized treatment plan.

  • What do chemical peels do?
    Chemical peeling agents resurface the skin by inducing a controlled wound and thus removing superficial layers of the skin. As a result, chemical peels promote the growth of a new healthy top skin layer and improve skin problems like hyperpigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles, uneven texture and skin impurities.
  • What should I expect during treatment?
    Procedures may vary dependent on the type of chemical peel chosen. Skin is prepped using a medical degreaser to ensure the treated area is free of any oils left on the skin. The chemical agent is then applied and typically remains on the skin for 3 to 5 minutes. Most patients feel a mild stinging which is temporary and usually subsides after a few minutes. Some peels are designed to self neutralize and may remain on your skin for 2-4 hours.
  • How long is the recovery after a chemical peel and what type of care is necessary?
    Recovery times will vary based on the type and strength of the peel. Immediately after the peel, your skin will feel tight and may be red. Any visible peeling will be light and fluffy and easily controlled with moisturizer. Peeling usually lasts 3-5 days, depending on the actual peel treatment. Use of gentle cleanser, moisturizer and sunscreen is important, as it will enhance the healing process and results. Normal activity may be resumed after the peel, however strenuous exercise and heavy sweating should be avoided for 2-3 days. Sun exposure should be avoided while skin is peeling; exposure of treated skin to a lot of heat should also be avoided as it may induce swelling, redness and for deeper peels blisters under the skin. Peeling skin should be allowed to slough off naturally; picking or peeling of flaking skin is prohibited, as it may lead to scarring. Use of prescription topicals should be avoided for 3-5 days post peel.
  • Why did I not have any visible peeling after my peel?
    The success of the peel should not be judged by the amount of peeling, but by the end results that the peel will produce. The amount of peeling may vary depending on individual skin condition at the time of the peel or the depth of the peel. Regardless of the degree of peeling, the skin is still sloughing off at an accelerated rate, resulting in the improvement of skin tone and texture and an improvement of fine lines and uneven pigmentation.
  • What products or procedures should I avoid before a chemical peel?
    • One week before the peel avoid waxing, electrolysis, deploritory creams, and laser hair removal. • Two to three days before the peel discontinue using any prescription topicals such as Retin-A, differin or Tazorac, as well as any products containing retinol, alpha hydroxyl acids (AHA), beta hydroxyl acids (BHA) or benzoyl peroxide. • Patients who have had any medical cosmetic facial treatments or procedures such as Laser treatments, cosmetic fillers or other surgical procedures should wait until skin sensitivity has completely resolved before receiving a peel.
  • What are the contraindications of chemical peels?
    Chemical peels should be avoided if any of the following conditions are present: • Active cold sores, herpes simplex or warts in the area to be treated • Wounded, sunburned or excessively sensitive skin • Accutane use within the last year • History of recent chemotherapy or radiation therapy • Allergies to aspirin • Women who are pregnant or actively breastfeeding • Patients with Vitiligo • Patients with a history of autoimmune disease (such as rheumatoid arthritis, psoriasis, lupus, multiple sclerosis etc) or any condition that may weaken their immune system
  • What can I expect after the 1st 24 hours after the peel?
    Your skin will feel tighter and be more red then usual. Your skin may feel tacky and have a yellowish orange tinge that subsides in a few hours. This is due to the Retinoic acid applied to the skin. This is a self neutralizing peel and patients should wait at least 4hours before washing there face that evening.
  • When will my skin start to peel and for how long?
    Peeling will generally start 48-72 hours after your treatment and can last 2-5 days. It is very important not to pick off peeling skin; peeling is minimal and easily controlled with moisturizer. Premature peeling of the skin will result in dry, cracked, raw skin that may develop into hyperpigmentation.
  • May I exercise after the peel?
    Exercise that produces a lot of heavy sweating should be avoided the day of the peel. You may resume all regular activities the next day.
  • How do I care for my skin after the peel?
    Use of a soap free gentle cleanser shall be used to wash your face, scrubs and wash cloths should be avoided while skin is peeling. Application of a hydrating moisturizer twice a day or as often as necessary is recommended to relieve dryness and control peeling. TNS ceramide cream, Elta intense moisturizer or Neocutis bio cream are all highly suggested. A physical Sunblock must be worn daily. Its best to avoid prolonged sun exposure for 1-week post peel.
  • What areas can be treated with PRP?
    We can treat any area on the body! Mostly we treat the face for rejuvenation or scarring, dark circles around the eyes, stretch marks on the breasts, stomach or thighs and hair loss in both men and women.Commonly treated areas include around the eyes, the jaw line, cheeks forehead, nasolabial lines, marionette lines and neck. It's also beneficial for hair loss.
  • How does PRP work?
    When the PRP is re-injected into the skin, growth factors are released by the platelets. This promotes healing and stimulates collagen production. Collagen, found naturally in the body, is the foundation of a youthful appearance. During the aging process less collagen is produced resulting in decreased volume, lines and wrinkles. Through stimulating collagen production, PRP helps to promote even skin tone, reduced scarring, improved skin texture resulting in healthy, resilient, hydrated skin.
  • What are the benefits of PRP?
    PRP improves skin texture and tone and regenerates collagen which helps reduce wrinkles and lines, improve skin texture around the delicate eye area, tackle blemishes, improve scarring and restore a healthy glow. It also helps with hair growth in men and women.
  • When can i expect to see results?
    PRP will begin working under the skin immediately, making new cells to help improve the surface layers of skin. Visible results will be seen between six to 12 weeks post-treatment, with continued improvements lasting for up to one year.
  • How long does PRP therapy last?
    Following a full course of treatment (3 treatments at 4-6 week intervals) the results of PRP therapy can be expected to last up to 18 months. A one-off treatment, can be expected to last for several months.
  • Are there any risks with PRP Therapy?
    Because you are using your own blood with no foreign substances, side effects are minimal. The injection process may cause some bruising, swelling and tenderness. As the platelets are the patients own there is no risk of transmissible diseases or allergic reactions. Infection risk is minimised by ensuring sterile technique and equipment
  • Where can we inject fat-dissolver?
    Double-chin Abdomen Flanks Saddlebags Inner thighs Inner knee Arms Back rolls Gynaecomastia
  • How long does it take to see the results?
    The solution will dissolve the fat cells, which then undergo degradation and absorption by the body over a length of 4 - 6 weeks. Therefore results can take several weeks to become visible. Two to four sessions 4-6 weeks apart are expected for best results.
  • How many sessions do you need?
    Two to four sessions 4-6 weeks apart are expected for best results.
  • How long the results last?
    This purely depends on your lifestyle. Fat cells could regenerate a few years later if you have a high-calorie intake and sedentary lifestyle.
  • What are the side-effects?
    Swelling, bruising and pain are extremely frequent (more than 50% of cases) and can last for days or weeks Allergic reactions (<0.002%) which may require emergency treatment Nodule (<0.05%) which are usually only transient and resolve as the fatty tissue is removed Damage to surrounding structures (<0.05%), including muscle, nerve, blood vessels Discolouration (<0.002%), usually only temporary and reduced by avoiding exposure to UV light Necrosis of the skin (<0.0076%) describes the damage caused by the skin by the solution if it comes into contact with it, this can lead to tissue death, blistering, sloughing of the skin, infection and scarring. Unsatisfactory results, including stubborn fat, asymmetry, irregularity, loose skin afterwards.
  • Does it hurt?
    Clients report minimal discomfort during the treatment. Our doctor may use an anesthetic cream or may add lidocaine, a local anaesthetic, to the injection solution so that the two are injected together. This should minimise discomfort during the procedure.
  • How is PRF performed?
    After you arrive for your treatment, a simple blood draw will be performed. A small amount of blood is drawn from patients and placed into a tube. The tube is then placed in a medical centrifuge device that isolates and purifies the platelets. Once the platelets are gathered and separated, they are injected into the scalp.
  • Are there any side effects of PRF Therapy?
    After PRP or PRF therapy, you can expect mild redness, swelling, warmth or a sensation of tightness just after your treatment. This usually disappears within a few days. Bruising is possible. Most patients feel they can resume all activities of daily living immediately following their appointment.
  • How often do i need PRF treatments?
    A series of 3 to 6 PRF hair restoration treatments spaced 4 week apart yields the best results. To maintain hair growth, maintenance treatments should occur every 6 to 12 months.
