A Guide for First Time Injectable Patients
Injectables like Botox, Dysport, Juvederm, and Restylane are great ways to quickly reverse common facial aging symptoms like wrinkles, thinning lips, and hollow areas under the eyes, temples and cheeks. The popularity of neurotoxins and dermal fillers has grown significantly over recent years as these treatments are relatively painless, require little to no recovery time, and provide quick results that can last for long periods of time.
If you’re considering injectables for the first time, here is a guide for achieving the best possible result:
Do Your Research Upfront
In today’s market there are many different types of neurotoxins and dermal fillers, each of which address different concerns.
Hyaluronic acid based fillers like Juvederm and Restylane, for example, are effective in restoring moisture and plumpness into the skin by attracting water to the treated area, while a neurotoxin like Botox or Dysport effectively reduces wrinkles by targeting overactive muscles.
It is helpful that patients understand what injectables are capable of treating and knowing what treatment results are most important to them. However, when it comes to selecting the right filler for your individual needs, the best source of knowledge will be your provider. A Cosmetic Injection Specialist with Medical Credentials, like Rose Streeter, RN, BSN can guide you to the best course of treatment to achieve your desired results.
Pick the Best Provider for your Treatment
Just like any other medical procedure selecting the right provider is of utmost importance. When deciding who to trust for your procedure, make sure each prospective provider has ample experience in using a variety of injectables and is properly (and currently) licensed. It’s always a good idea to review testimonials from previous patients or seek recommendations from friends or family.
Finally, you should always be wary of outlets that advertise deep discount bargains. While huge discounts or Groupon deals might be appealing, often lower pricing stems from a provider’s lack of experience or desperation for new patients.
Consider Maintenance Longterm
While they are long-lasting, the effects of injectables will eventually wear off. Typically results can last anywhere from four months to three years depending on the specific filler or neurotoxin used. Keep in mind that in order to maintain your desired results periodic maintenance treatments will be necessary.
Listen to your Injection Specialist – the Advice is crucial
Be sure to follow all instructions provided by your provider both before and after your treatment. Failing to follow simple instructions like not taking an aspirin before the procedure or working out after the procedure can make all the difference between a great and not-so-great treatment.
Give Yourself Enough Time To Recover
While injectables require little to no downtime, some individuals will experience minor swelling or bruising immediately following the procedure, both of which subside on their own after a few days to a week. It’s recommended to allow for a full week to fully recover before attending any big event. Also keep in mind that some injectables can take some time for the full effects to kick in. While dermal filler results are more immediate, neurotoxin results can take up to two weeks for full effect.
Not all Cosmetic Injection Specialists are the Same
While Botox is not as complicated as cosmetic surgery, choosing a heavily discounted service or new injectionist may save a few pennies; but can also have less than satisfactory results. For this reason, you want to have any work of this type done by a Cosmetic Injection Specialist with medical credentials such as Rose Streeter, RN, BSN. With over 21 years of injection experience and a nursing background, Rose stays on the leading edge with continuous training and education in medical aesthetics. She is professional and conservative by nature and can help customize your treatment to your individual needs. Her studio is private, with no waiting room, providing a comfortable atmosphere.
