Sometimes, a patient may be curious about seeking rejuvenation from Botox® or dermal fillers, but is too nervous to schedule a treatment because they’re worried about looking “done” or “fake.” In the hands of an expert injector, injectables are one of the safest and easiest—not to mention most popular—non-surgical cosmetic treatments around.
If you’re eager for a revitalized, natural look, here’s what you need to know:
1. Injectables should work for YOU (not the other way around).
The last thing you want after your injectables session is to be complimented on how nice your fillers look. Injectables are designed to blend into your features and subtly replenish lost volume, smoothing lines and wrinkles and restoring a younger-looking, refreshed appearance. The goal of your injectables is to look your best and leave people guessing why.
2. Start with a little.
Sometimes, a little goes a long way with injectables. Even after you clearly communicate your goals to your injector, it’s impossible to know exactly how much product you will need until your injector performs your treatment. We prefer starting low and going slow, giving you time to adjust to your results. There’s no need to worry that you will walk out of the office looking inflated and overdone. Unless you request that look, our number one goal is to reveal the most natural-looking and flattering benefits.
3. Patience is paramount.
Dermal fillers do offer immediate plumping action and volume to your face, but it can take a while for swelling to settle down and reveal your true results. It can also take a few days for the dermal filler to settle in. Botox provides benefits starting up to a week after treatment, so your true results won’t show for the 3 to 7 days. This means patience is key with every injectable treatment.
