Frequently Asked Questions

If you have any concerns, please read this collection of frequently asked questions before contacting us. If you are still unclear about something, feel free to contact.

WHAT TO EXPECT DURING THE TREATMENT ?

Treatments with members of the HYADERMIS family typically take less than one hour (individual treatment time may vary).

Consult with your healthcare professional before treatment if you have pain management concerns.

Healthcare professionals always use aseptic technique when administering Hyadermis from sterile, pre-packaged injection sets.

 

WHAT IS DERMAL FILLER, AND HOW DOES IT WORK ?

The primary component of dermal filler is Hyaluronic Acid, a carbohydrate found throughout nature in the animal kingdom, including the human body. It keeps our connective tissues hydrated and makes the skin plump, but declines with ageing. It also acts as a humectant which locks in moisture, rejuvenates and restores firmness of the skin. Hyaluronic Acid gels are highly biocompatible and safe to use. Dermal fillers augment skin wrinkles and contours by enhancing the elasticity of the skin, reducing Hyaluronic degradation that occurs over time. The effect is to make skin smooth elastic and look younger.

ARE DERMAL FILLER INJECTIONS PAINFUL ?

Any injection may cause personal discomfort, and this may depend on the site for injection, personal sensitivity or the technique used by your health care professional. Application of topical anesthesia to the injected area before treatment will significantly reduce pain or discomfort during the procedure. HYADERMIS LA includes lidocaine, a widely used topical aesthetic making the procedure essentially pain-free.

IS IT SAFE TO INJECT DERMAL FILLERS ?

The implantation of the product must be practiced under national legislation by authorized professionals, trained with implantation injection and have sufficient anatomical knowledge of treatment site. Injecting Dermal Fillers with anesthetics into human body operated by qualified professionals is regarded as a safe procedure. However, any injection procedure is associated with risks of infection. Experienced and trained authorized professionals with appropriate injecting techniques may reduce risk of inflammation. Also, please consult professionals to evaluate your physical condition (e.g. potential side effects/symptoms, any allergies, medication…) and actively inform doctors of these information.

  • There are some contraindications for the use of HYADERMIS family series of products in those who:
    • Have hypersensitivity to hyaluronic acid.
    • Have hypersensitivity to lidocaine or amide-type local anaesthetics.
    • Have untreated epilepsy or suffer from porphyria or methemoglobinemia.
    • Have coagulation disorders or impaired platelet functions or receive those which cause anticoagulant effect, for example, concurrent treatment with non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, aspirin, anticoagulants, thrombolytics, angiotonics, ginseng, ginkgo or garlic extract, and so on.
  • Common injection-related adverse events might be experienced after treatment including: erythema, swelling, pain, pruritus, haphalgesia, tenderness, contusion, bruising, haemorrhage and suppuration. These reactions would be resolved within 1 to 2 weeks without any intended treatments.
  • Other side effects have been reported post-marketing for the products are nodules, discoloration, skin eruption, desquamation, pigmentation changes, lip blister, granuloma, numbness, allergies, irregular shape (papules/depressed deformation) or foreign body sensation.
  • The above responses are likely to last more than two weeks, or even delay to appear until after several weeks.
  • No severe adverse events have been recognized as HYADERMIS series of products or device-related.
  • Normally, tissue infections and skin necrosis may not be resolved easily. Its causes are related to professionals’ operation and injection errors rather than dermal fillers and device-related.
  • If any side-effect occurs, must be reported to your healthcare professionals, and get medical care immediately.
  • Periodic touch-up can help sustain the desired appealing corrections.
IS THERE A RISK OF ALLERGIC REACTION TO DERMAL FILLER ?

If you have concerns regarding allergy or hypersensitivity, consult with your healthcare professional prior to treatment so a proper medical assessment can be performed.

WILL I BE ABLE TO FEEL THE DERMAL FILLER ONCE I HAVE BEEN TREATED ?

Although any implantation may lead to a 'foreign body’ type sensation, with dermal fillers this  mild and should cause no concern, gradually disappearing after a few weeks.

WHAT SHOULD I DO AFTER THE TREATMENT ?
  • KEEP injection site dry and clean after treatment within at least 2 weeks.
  • AVOID touching implant area, taking alcohol, drugs, or applying facial care products and cosmetics few days after injection to decline stronger bruising, swelling, and the risk of inflammation.
  • AVOID exposing injection sites to hot and humid environment, such as solarium, sauna and sunlight or frigid climate environment until initial swelling and redness have recovered.
  • AVOID injecting complementary gels in implant areas after treatment in the next 7 days.
  • DO NOT over massage or compress the fragile implant area few days after injection for reducing risk of wound contamination or irregular shape.
  • AVOID excessive movements, such as jumping, jogging and running, to decrease risk of local mobility and implant displacement.
