Most patients who decide to give injectable treatments a try, are glad they did so. The surgeons and nurses at Facial Aesthetic Concepts are happy to work with new patients who want to see firsthand the rejuvenating effects of these easy treatments. Here’s what potential first-time patients should know about injectables:
They Are as Quick and Easy as Advertised
Some skin treatments can require an hour or more in the doctor’s chair or involve significant downtime (i.e., your skin temporarily looks worse before ultimately looking much better), but neither of these factors apply to injectables. Our patients enjoy the quick appointments as well as the fact that they can resume their normal activities immediately. While some patients may experience mild irritation or bruising at the site of the injection, usually their friends have no idea that they’ve just had a treatment performed — at least not until the results begin to manifest.
It’s a Fairly Painless Process
Even those who have a fear of needles seem pleasantly surprised to discover that the discomfort associated with injectable treatments is both brief and tolerable. Before the injection, we use a topical numbing cream to make the prick from the needle easier — most injectables also contain lidocaine to further reduce discomfort. Occasionally, a patient will experience some lingering soreness, but in most cases the discomfort fades rapidly.
The Best Results Come from Great Providers
Injectables may be available at many businesses these days, but they do not produce equal results. Patients who want attractive, natural-looking results should trust experienced, knowledgeable professionals who know which kind of filler and how much of it is necessary to produce the desired look. At Facial Aesthetic Concepts, our team receives rave reviews for offering better injections than our local competitors.
Results Can Always Be Adjusted
One of the top reasons to choose a non-surgical treatment is that it gives patients the option to refine the results on an ongoing basis. If someone decides to make her frown lines less visible or her lips a bit plumper, she can vocalize these requests at her next appointment and her injector can take that into account to make the appropriate adjustments.
