  • Can I have a YVOIRE treatment?

    Ask your practitioner if you will benefit from using any of the products in the YVOIRE range. It is important to share your complete medical history with your practitioner, including all medicines that you are taking, any present and past allergies and their seriousness, and all current or past medical conditions you have had. Your clinician will discuss any potential adverse reaction to the injection of YVOIRE and how serious the reaction could be. You should also inform your practitioner if you have received previous aesthetic treatments, either surgical or non-surgical.

  • Who should not have an YVOIRE treatment?

    Patients with known allergy to hyaluronic acid based products should not receive the treatment. YVOIRE is also unsuitable for patients with bleeding disorders or active skin diseases such as inflammation, infection or tumors in or near the area to be treated. Discuss contraindications, warnings and precautions with your medical practitioner before taking the YVOIRE treatment.

  • What should I bear in mind when considering a treatment?

    First of all, you should always contact a qualified medical practitioner to ensure that the treatment is performed correctly. Your treatment should be performed in a medical environment that maintains you privacy and is spotlessly clean. You may request to see your chosen clinician’s training certificate and insurance certificate to verify they are appropriately trained and insured for the treatment they are providing.

  • Who is qualified to perform YVOIRE treatments?

    Only a medically qualified practitioner is permitted to perform an YVOIRE treatment. Depending on your country’s legislation, plastic surgeons, cosmetic clinicians, dermatologists, cosmetic dentists or aesthetic nurses may be classified as medically qualified practitioners.

  • What precautions should my medical practitioner advise me on?

    There are several important precautions to discuss with your medical practitioner to ensure satisfactory results and avoid complications. Inform your medical practitioner the following:
    -If you are taking immunosuppressive medications
    -If you are taking aspirin, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) or any other medication that affects bleeding
    -If you have any other questions about precautions related to the treatment, please clear them with your healthcare practitioner

  • How is YVOIRE administered?

    First, the clinician disinfects the area to be treated. A small amount of YVOIRE is then injected into the skin through a fine needle or blunt micro-cannula to fill wrinkles or add volume, shape your face or lips or rejuvenate the skin. After injection, your practitioner may gently massage the treated area to even out the results.

  • How long does the treatment take?

    A treatment with YVOIRE does not take long. Depending on the area and requirement, it takes approximately 15-45 minutes. A touch-up treatment is sometimes performed approximately two weeks after the initial treatment to optimize the results.

  • Is the treatment painful?

    Some people may experience mild discomfort during treatment. Many YVOIRE products contain an integrated local anesthetic known as lidocaine, to provide you with a more comfortable treatment experience. Further, YVOIRE comes with special needles for easy skin penetration. You and your practitioner may decide whether additional pain relief is needed.

  • How long do the effects of the treatment last?

    YVOIRE is a non-permanent injectable product, so the effect gradually diminishes with time. The longevity of the products may differ according to the treatment area, the patient and the clinician’s capabilities.

  • Can I have a YVOIRE treatment if I am pregnant?

    These products have not been tested for use by pregnant or breastfeeding women.

  • What should I apply or avoid after the treatment?

    Avoid applying make-up to the treated area immediately after treatment.
    -Light cover-up may be used to conceal any remaining redness after approximately 24 hours.
    -A yellow-toned concealer may be used to hide any minor bruises. -In order to cover up any redness, a concealer with a slight green/yellow tone is recommended.

  • What are the possible side effects?

    The most common adverse events include reactions such as swelling, bruising, redness, pain or tenderness at the treatment site. These adverse events generally disappear within one week after injection. Dermal filler injections may induce other potential side effects. You are advised to discuss the potential treatment risks with your healthcare practitioner.
