Questions on treatments

  • How much time does a treatment take?

    That depends on the individual treatment. First, you will get a consultation with one of our self-employed doctors on the treatment method and the active substances. The consultation usually takes 15 to 30 minutes. The different treatments can take between 10 and 90 minutes.

    Shorter treatments such as injections to treat wrinkles and brow lifts only take 10 to 15 minutes; combined treatments about 20 to 30 minutes, and longer treatments (such as cryolipolysis or thread lifts) about 60 to 90 minutes.

  • Are the treatments painful?

    Don’t worry: Most of the treatments are almost pain-free. For longer treatments like microneedling, a special cream can numb the skin a little bit.

  • Do I see injection or pressure marks after a treatment?

    Usually, only small injection marks are visible. After a filler or botulinum treatment, slight swelling and small bruises might appear around the injected areas. But don’t worry: These usually disappear in the following hours or days! 24h later, you can cover them up with a little bit of makeup after consulting the doctor. In rare cases, the area could get infected. You can read up on this in our Aftercare Guide.

  • Can I go back to work right after the treatment?

    The treatments are minimally invasive – that means that you can go back to work right after your treatment. Just be aware that slight swelling or small bruises could appear. After consulting with the doctor, you can cover these up with some makeup.

    Our tip: Book your treatment 2 to 3 weeks (or in case of thread lifts 4 weeks) before a big event, such as a wedding. Small injections marks won’t be visible anymore – and you can already see the final result of your treatment!

  • How much time has to pass before I can work out again?

    You should avoid working out for about 2 to 5 days after your treatment: It puts stress on body circulation, and might expose the treated areas to pressure (e. g. during boxing, swimming with goggles).

    However, it’s okay to do less exhausting physical activity such as jogging or light fitness training the day after your treatment. In the case of thread lifts, you should wait longer, and refrain from physical activity for about 2 to 3 weeks.

  • Can I go to the spa or out in the sun after a treatment?

    You should avoid sunbeds, sunbaths, and saunas for 1 week after your treatment.

  • Is there anything else I should consider after my treatment?

    In the first 2 weeks, you should avoid massages, facials, and peelings in the treated area.

  • When do I see the result of my treatment?

    With hyaluronic acid, you can see a first effect directly after the treatment. The final result will be visible within about 10 to 14 days as the effect of hyaluronic acid increases during this time. With botulinum, you can experience the effect of the treatment within 2 to 10 days, in rare cases up to 14 days.

  • How long does the effect of my treatment last?

    That depends on the treatment method used and can differ from person to person. On average the result lasts between 3 to 12 months – some can last much longer, but that depends on the method used, technique, and product.

  • In which intervals can I get treatments?

    This depends on the active substance used and the area that is treated. Generally, you can refresh your treatment after 3 to 12 months. In most cases, one treatment per year is sufficient to maintain the effect.

  • Who will provide me with the treatment?

    In our studio, a dynamic and experienced team of self-employed doctors will treat you, supported by our amazing studio team. Our self-employed doctors use high-quality products from leading brands. They thoroughly advise you before your treatment and present you with an individual treatment briefing.

  • Can I get treatment during pregnancy?

    Our self-employed doctors do not treat women during pregnancy. There is no conclusive, scientific research on the impact of such treatments and the use of products on an unborn child or baby. Therefore we strongly advise ​against​ treatments during pregnancy or while breastfeeding.

  • Is there a minimum age to get a treatment?

    You have to be at least 18 years old to get treated by one of our self-employed doctors.

Questions on active substances

  • What is botulinum toxin?

    Botulinum toxin relaxes the muscles and has been used for more than 30 years by doctors to cure squint and muscle spasms. In aesthetic medicine, doctors have been using botulinum in smaller doses for decades to reduce wrinkles, and to prevent existing mimic wrinkles from deepening.

  • Can botulinum toxin affect my health?

    Our self-employed doctors use botulinum very carefully and in very small dosage – far smaller than a dose that could negatively impact one’s health. In medicine, this is called a “high therapeutic range” and means that the dosage that is used is only a fraction from what could potentially be harmful. Before any treatment, our self-employed doctors will give you a thorough consulting session, and inform you about any possible side effects.

  • What is hyaluronic acid?

    Hyaluronic acid is a natural component of the skin and – as a matrix molecule – also an important part of the connective tissue. It helps to moisturize your skin and increases resilience and smoothness.

    Unfortunately, the amount of hyaluronic acid in our bodies starts to decrease after the age of 20. This loss is one of many reasons that can cause wrinkles over time and can be countered by externally supplying the skin with hyaluronic acid. It can also replace – if used as a filler – fading fat pads which can be another reason for volume loss and, as a result, wrinkles.

  • Can hyaluronic acid affect my health?

    Hyaluronic acid is a natural component of the connective tissue. Side effects, like small bruises, occur very rarely during treatments that are performed by a skilled doctor and usually disappear within a few days. In rare cases, the treated area could redden or get infected. Very rarely, more serious non desired events could occur, which will be thoroughly explained by our self-employed doctors during the consultation session. You will have a thorough consultation session before any treatment, and our self-employed doctors will inform you about any possible side effects.

  • Do I get a frozen face when I am treated with botulinum or hyaluronic acid?

    During your treatment at HY STUDIO, our self-employed doctors are mindful to dose the active substance carefully based on your individual needs. The treatment will be ideally performed in a way that your natural, personal facial expressions won’t be changed to look artificial. Therefore, the doctor will perform an individual analysis of your face, and match your wishes with realistic expectations to address all of your needs at his or her best.

    In rare cases – during treatment with botulinum – other parts of the muscle might be relaxed that was not supposed to be treated. But don’t worry: This is just a temporary effect that will disappear in a couple of weeks and won’t necessarily impact you in any way.

  • How tolerable are the active substances?

    HY STUDIO stands for quality and expertise. Our self-employed doctors use active substances that are generally very well-tolerated. Furthermore, they only use high-quality products during their treatments that were obtained from leading and well-known brands.

  • Should I get treated with hyaluronic acid or botulinum toxin?

    A treatment with hyaluronic acid, botulinum toxin, or a combination of both depends on the form of treatment and the type and depth of the wrinkles. Our self-employed doctors carefully analyze your face and the region that will be treated in a consultation session. Based on the analysis they will advise on the active substances, the possible application, and the treatment process.

  • What are the threads made of that are used for a thread lift made by the self-employed doctors at HY STUDIO?

    Our self-employed doctors use threads that are made of polylactic acid and polydioxanone, which are both materials that have been established in medicine for many years, and that are clinically approved and certified. The threads are fully resorbable – your body breaks the threads down completely in the following 12 to 24 months. The effect of the thread lift, however, lasts sometimes even longer.

  • Does cryolipolysis harm the skin?

    Cryolipolysis is a non-invasive treatment that is considered to be very gentle to the skin and the adjacent connective tissue. During the treatment, your skin will be protected by a special protective interface tissue. Moreover, our self-employed doctors will monitor the temperature of the cryolipolysis machine and make sure that the temperature stays constant during the treatment, and that the treated area won’t be strained unnecessarily.

    The most common side effects that can occur after the treatment are light bruises, reddening of the skin, swelling, momentary numbness, and rarely itching. These generally disappear within the following days or weeks. Sometimes, a temporary and very subtle pigmentation change can occur in the treated area.
