You’ve seen the look one too many times – puffy, pouty, overfilled lips, bulging cheeks, and “frozen” expressions. The overdone appearance displayed all too frequently on Hollywood red carpets does not look natural or proportional.
Injectable treatments like Botox® and dermal fillers can produce stunning anti-aging results when used appropriately. They can temporarily eliminate wrinkles, replace volume loss, smooth skin’s texture, and even proactively prevent the formation of wrinkles for younger patients. However, when performed by an inexperienced or heavy-handed injector, they can also detract from your appearance. So, how can you confidently get injectables without worrying about looking overdone?
Choose Your Provider Wisely
Don’t choose someone at random to do your injectable treatments. Injections are a science and require education, skill, and artistry. If someone administers injectables without the proper education or certification, the results can look exaggerated and artificial.
The best person to trust with your appearance is a board-certified plastic surgeon, a physician’s assistant, or a licensed aesthetician who has acquired the proper certifications and training with Botox® and dermal fillers.
Professional injectors have detailed training in the complexities of facial anatomy. Their mission is to enhance their patients’ natural beauty. They go through years of specialized education and obtain licensure that makes them experts in their field. Your injector can recommend the best product – or combination thereof – to meet your needs, and precisely employ it to achieve your desired outcome.
Establish Realistic Expectations
Having an impractical outlook is one of the most frequent causes of unnatural results from an injectable treatment. The idea is to enhance your natural assets instead of completely changing your appearance or trying to transform you into someone else. Injectables improve your facial contours, restore your skin’s health and vitality, and address specific cosmetic concerns.
For example, Botox® is excellent at minimizing crow’s feet around the eyes and stubborn forehead wrinkles. Meanwhile, facial fillers can add subtle volume to your lips and diminish undereye hollows.
Don’t Be Afraid to Ask Questions at Your Consultation
There’s no such thing as a silly or frivolous question when you’re considering any cosmetic procedure. Come to your initial consultation prepared to discuss your options and connect with your injector.
It’s always wise to ask to see before-and-after pictures of previous patients or bring example photos of what you hope to look like after treatment. Your injector can explain how much of each injectable product you’ll need to achieve your desired results.
