First Time Injectable BLOG

Injectables have been the #1 cosmetic go-to treatments to quickly reverse the common signs of facial aging such as wrinkles, thinning of lips and hollow areas around the eyes, cheeks and temples. Injectables like Botox, Juvederm, Restylane provide significant results and also happen to be relatively painless, require little to no downtime and offer quick results that last for a long time! Here are some of the best tips from our Envy professionals if you are considering injectables for the first time!

Pick The Right Provider

Injectables may be a quick in-and-out treatment but they are still considered to be a medical procedure. Just like selecting the right provider for any other medical procedure, be sure to thoroughly research providers who are well-trained in the realm of injectables. Ensure the provider has ample experience in not just injectables but also using a variety of injectables and is properly licensed. A great way to sort through and find the right provider is by looking at prior patient reviews and testimonials!

Do In-Depth Research

Today, there are many different types of injectables available for all your cosmetic goals. Hyalorunic acid based fillers such as Juvederm and Restylane are useful to target and restore the lost moisture and volume, while neurotoxins such as Botox are most effective to address overacting muscles that cause wrinkles. Most patients are looking to add volume back to restore a more youthful appearance. It is always helpful to do your own research prior to choosing the right provider who can further advise you on the correct injectable for your cosmetic needs. Visiting an experienced injector will always guide you to the best course of treatment to fulfill your desired results.

Know The Maintenance Standards

First and foremost, understand that injectables do not last forever! While the majority of them are long-lasting, results typically last anywhere from 4 to 6 months depending on the specific injectable. Maintenance treatments every 4 to 6 months are necessary in order to maintain your desired results periodically.

Do Consider Recovery Time

While most injectables require little to no downtime, some patients may experience minor swelling or bruising immediately after the treatment. These will subside on their own in a day or two post procedure. Most injectables also take a full two weeks to show their full effect. The key to admiring your results is to be patient and communicate with your injector about any questions or concerns post procedure!

Avoid UV Exposure

You should always practice sun protection all year round but especially after newly done injectable treatments! Be sure to invest in a proper high quality broad-spectrum sunscreen to help with additional sun protection. Schedule a consultation today to discuss your goals with our incredible Envy injectors!
