Did you recently undergo a Restylane skin booster procedure? Are you possibly experiencing any side effects associated with the treatment? If yes, this article is for you.

Read on to learn how to effectively quell some of the side effects that you may experience after the treatment.


After the procedure, you may notice some swelling in the treated area. Don’t be alarmed when you see this. Your skin will return back to normal after a day or two.

You can speed up the process by applying a cool compress on the swollen area for 10 minutes every hour for a day or two after the treatment.

Appling cool compress 24 hours after the procedure may help prevent the swelling from becoming serious. If you can’t get your hands on a cool compress, you should use Arnica before and after the treatment, as it is also effective at reducing swelling.


Following the pre-treatment instructions you are given will help ensure that you don’t experience severe side effects after the procedure.

Medications like aspirin, fish oil, and a few others can increase the risk of bruising; this is why dermatologists often advise patients to avoid them days and weeks before their treatment.

If the bruises on the treated area are severe, you can take medications like Hirudoid and Bruderm to help calm things down.

Contact the dermatologist or aesthetician who did the skinbooster treatment for you for further help.

When to massage the treated area?

After a Restylane skin booster procedure, your dermatologist will tell you not to touch the treated area for a couple of hours. This will help prevent you from further irritating the treated area.

Your doctor may give you the go-ahead to tenderly massage the treated area when it has healed up a bit. Do note that the swollenareas will calm down on their own without you using any treatment.

Why you should choose a reputable clinic

Singapore is home to many aesthetic clinics that offer non-invasive skin rejuvenation treatments like Restylane Skinbooster Injections.

While some of these centers are armed with industry-standard equipment and qualified clinicians, others use outdated equipment. Even worse, they aren’t abreast with the trends and innovations in their industry.

To narrow down a good clinic that can perform the procedure, you have to put in some effort. This can mean everything from doing extensive research online to asking your doctor to recommend a center for you.

In Conclusion

Restylane skinbooster injections are an effective procedure that can deliver jaw-dropping results within days and weeks. The treatment is non-invasive, safe, and has a very short downtime.

Applying the tips discussed in this article will help reduce the side effects associated with the treatment. If after applying the above tips, the side effects don’t go away, you should consult your dermatologist. He/she will give you further instructions that will help you address the side effects.

As mentioned above, strictly following the pre-treatment instruction given by your dermatologist will help ensure that these side effects don’t spring up in the first place.
