I have anti-wrinkle injections and fillers; would laser treatment affect it somehow?
When considering laser treatments alongside your anti-wrinkle injections and dermal fillers, it is important to understand the potential impact they may have. At Cityskin, our injectors have observed that dermal fillers can break down more quickly when exposed to lasers or any treatment that generates heat under the skin. This observation has also been discussed by other medical professionals at conferences.
During your consultation, your healthcare provider will assess your unique situation and provide personalised recommendations, considering factors such as the type of cosmetic injections used, the specific laser treatment, and your desired outcomes. By following their expert guidance, you can achieve the best possible results and ensure the safety and effectiveness of your treatments.
At our clinic, we have not come across medical evidence to restrict facial laser treatments following anti-wrinkle injections. Therefore, we believe that laser treatments do not accelerate the breakdown of anti-wrinkle effects. However, to ensure cautious and optimal results, we recommend waiting at least 1 week after your anti-wrinkle injections or until the skin’s barrier is no longer compromised by redness or peeling.
While the duration of anti-wrinkle treatment effectiveness can vary among individuals, with the appropriate dosage, your treatment should typically last just over 3 months. We understand that every person’s response may differ, and we will work closely with you to achieve the best possible outcomes.
With the right amount of anti-wrinkle units your treatment should last just over 3 months but it can vary from person to person.
