What is Cytocare used for?

The aesthetic indications for the 3 fillers above vary according to the concentration of the hyaluronic acid in the dermal revitalising solution:

  • Cytocare 502: With the lowest concentration of hyaluronic acid, this filler is indicated for patients who wish to preserve the natural radiance of youthful skin. This skin revitalising solution helps to delay the formation of wrinkles while maintaining the skin’s hydration.
  • Cytocare 516: This filler is indicated for patients who wish to get rid of superficial facial wrinkles while maintaining the hydration level of the skin. It is also ideal for restoring the elasticity and radiance of the skin.
  • Cytocare 532: With the highest concentration of hyaluronic acid, this solution is perfect for patients already affected by the skin ageing process. Signs of skin ageing like dehydration, dullness, and wrinkles can be easily corrected using this filler.

Prior to a treatment session, conduct a facial assessment and review the patient’s medical history (e.g. history of previous aesthetic procedures done, any existing medical issues, drugs or supplements taken, etc.). This is to ensure that patients are suitable for Cytocare injections. Assessing the aesthetic imperfections will help gauge the severity and the appropriate Cytocare solution needed. Once the patients are deemed ready, the skin revitalising solution can be injected intradermally using techniques recommended by the manufacturer. The procedure should only be done by certified and experienced physicians.

What are the side effects of treatment?

Following treatment session, patients may experience localised inflammatory reactions as characterised by tenderness, itchiness, redness, bruising, and swelling. These mild reactions will subside gradually on their own. On the other hand, patients may even develop more serious side effects like allergic reactions if the patient is not properly vetted.
