Here’s some important information regarding the vital steps to follow when booking your treatment and what to expect during your procedure.
What Are Injectables and What Do They Do?
Before scheduling your appointment for an injectable treatment, it is good to be aware of what injectables are, what they can do for you and the differences between the procedures available.
Dermal fillers are used to help restore lost volume in the face. As we age, our skin loses its natural elasticity and moisture causing a sagging effect, in particular in our cheeks and jowls. Dermal fillers are injected into these areas to subtly plump the area, redefining contours and boosting skin texture and tone.
Anti wrinkle injections use a form of protein to stop certain muscles in the face being able to contract. This reduces the appearance of existing wrinkles and prevents new lines from forming. Anti wrinkle injections are not permanent, wearing off within 4-6 months of treatment. When administered by a skilled professional, anti wrinkle injections create a very subtle, refreshed appearance in areas susceptible to lines and wrinkles such as the forehead.
Selecting Your Practitioner
Don’t choose just any staff in a medical spa or medical center for your injectable treatments. It’s extremely important to choose the right practitioner in a reputable clinic. Additionally, it’s vital that the person performing the treatment is qualified to do so. They must be a doctor or qualified nurse with a clear understanding and knowledge of the anatomy of the face.
It’s always a good idea to check out testimonials from previous patients and don’t hesitate to ask them questions until you feel comfortable knowing that provider is trustworthy.
No Obligation Consultation
Once you have selected the clinic for your treatment, it’s very important to have an in-depth consultation to discuss your treatment options and ask questions. No two people’s face are the same; treatments suitable for someone else may not be the best option for you. Your consultation should be completely non-obligatory, allowing you the option to go away and think about the information you have been given before you decide to proceed with the procedure.
What To Expect
After having dermal filler injections, there may be some swelling and slight bruising; both should subside fairly quickly. With almost all dermal fillers, results can be seen practically instantly. Also, improvement in skin tone and complexion will develop in the next week or so following treatment.
Anti wrinkle injections results can take a little longer. Results are generally seen after about two weeks from having the injections. Scheduling a two week review is recommended as it will give your practitioner the opportunity to review the results and correct anything you are not quite happy with.
