Injectable Treatments

Glam & Glow offers a range of anti-aging injectable treatments to reduce the appearance of existing lines and wrinkles and to enhance your natural beauty. Our anti-aging treatments can be adapted and customised to suit your appearance and specific skin needs.

Each injectable treatment is different from each other which requires different precaution. Please review the detail by clicking the picture and consult with doctor for treatment of the area of your concern.

Before your injectable treatment

  • The most common side effect of injectable treatment especially for botox and filler is bruising and swelling. It is NOT advisable to have injections less than 2 weeks before the big event.

  • To avoid bruising, it is best not to take any pain relievers or any anti-inflammatory that are blood thinners like ibuprofen and aspirin (Aleve, Advil, Motrin). Take acetaminophen instead: Tylenol.  Please consult your physician if you are taking Aspirin or any other blood thinning medicine for medical reasons! 

  • Avoid certain supplements including St. Johns Wort, ginko biloba, primrose oil, fish oil, omega 3, ginger, ginseng, garlic pills and Vitamin E for 1 week. They are all blood thinners. 

  • Avoid alcohol prior to treatment and for a few days after treatment since it helps blood circulation and act like blood thinner. 

  • Sunburned skin is difficult to treat so avoid exposure to the sun.

  • Avoid waxing, bleaching, tweezing, or hair removal cream on the area to be treated for 3 days prior.

  • Avoid topical products such as Tretinoin (Retin-A), Retinols, Retinoids, Glycolic Acid, or alpha hydroxy acids higher than 10% for 3 days prior to the day of treatment.

  • Inform the doctor if you have a history of perioral herpes or facial sores to receive advice on antiviral therapy prior to treatment. 

  • Always inform your doctor of all medications you may be taking as well as your medical history.

  • Do not use dermal fillers if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, are allergic to any ingredients, or suffer from neurological disorders. Please inform us if you have any questions about this prior to your treatment.

Post care 

  • Do not rub or stimulate the site of injection

  • Avoid the sauna for one week after the procedure

  • Avoid smoking or drinking

  • It is advised that treatment with the homeopathic oral medication, Arnica Montana, begin the day before treatment to help promote healing and minimize bruising and swelling. Arnica is available at health food super markets such as Whole Foods.

  • Take Bromelain. Bromelain, a supplement derived from pineapple stems, may reduce bruising and swelling by breaking down blood proteins.

  • Incorporate foods abundant in bioflavonoids into your diet. Bioflavonoids help to strengthen your blood vessels and connective tissue. Foods rich in bioflavonoids include oranges, berries, grapes and green beans.
