There’s a secret to getting the best results from injectable wrinkle treatments like BOTOX®, JUVÉDERM® and RADIESSE®. The single most important factor for getting the safest, most beautiful and longest-lasting outcome is pretty simple: selecting a skilled and experienced injector.
Pick Your Priorities
The widespread popularity of these treatments and the array of non-medical spas in which they are administered may make it tempting to think of them as simple cosmetic solutions like eyebrow waxing or pedicures. However, injectables are safe and effective only when administered by skilled medical experts in a sterile, professional environment.
A 2013 study published in the ISAPS Aesthetic Plastic Surgery found that with the exponential growth in providers administering these injectable treatments, some key changes are required to ensure patient safety. Unless and until such changes occur, the only way to ensure that your results are beautiful, safe and with minimal complications or risk is to skip the day spa and seek a medical-grade facility staffed by skilled injectables experts.
Looking Your Best
Looking your best is a worthwhile goal, and injectable fillers and wrinkle treatments like BOTOX® offer impressive results with little downtime. But don’t make the mistake of downplaying the gravity of injectable treatments by trusting your skin to just anyone. In order to get the most beautiful results, put your focus on finding a skilled, experienced and highly trained injector rather than on looking for bargain-basement BOTOX® parties or other non-reputable providers. Health is everything, so make safety your priority, and seek a surgeon-supervised setting for your injectable anti-aging treatments.
