What is the procedure for Skin Boosters like?
Skin boosters can be injected either manually or using an injector device. However, the injector device may not be suitable for some brands of skin boosters due to the viscosity, which may cause blockage in the device. In addition, there is a risk of leakage when using injector devices, too, leading to wastage of the product.
Dr Lim has a preference for the manual injection method. However, the manual injection method is known to be slightly more uncomfortable than using the injector device (greatly helped by the numbing cream) but brings several upsides with it. It allows for better control and placement of the skinboosters to bring out an effect that best matches the patient’s expectations. The manual injection process can also reduce the number of injection points needed with good planning, leading to lower downtime and cost of the procedure for the patient. This method also leads to a reduction in wasted products.
