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 has different ingredients and designed to be used for different purpose. Please consult with our doctor about your concern.

Prior your injectable treatment 

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

  • To avoid bruising it is best not to take any pain killer or Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) that act as blood thinners: Aspirin, Ibuprofen (Motrin, advil, motrin IB), Naproxen (Naprosyn, Aleve) and Nabumetone (Relafen). Try 

    • Celecoxib (Celebrex; NSAID only COX 2 inhibitor) or 

    • Acetaminophen instead: Tylenol

  • Cut out certain supplements. Vitamin E, fish oil, ginseng, gingko biloba, ginger, omega-3, St. John's wort and garlic pills are all blood thinners.

  • Avoid alcohol prior to treatment and for a few days after treatment since it is a blood thinner.

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

  • Avoid waxing, bleaching, tweezing, or the use of hair removal cream on the area to be treated.

  • Avoid the use of Alpha Hydroxy Acids higher than 10% and avoid Retinoids.

  • Inform your clinician if you have a history of Perioral Herpes or facial sores to receive advice on antiviral therapy prior to treatment.

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

  • 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.

Post care after injectable treatment

  • Normal daily activities can be resumed almost immediately.

  • Expect possible redness, swelling and bruising at the treated sites. 

  • Different injectable treatment requires different post care. Please read post care instruction of your injectable treatment
