Top 3 Injectables Tips for Getting Your Best Results in Provo, UT

If you have been curious about injectables you’re probably wondering, what steps do I take to ensure the most desirable results? Trust us, you want to get these questions answered so you don’t have any worries while waiting to see your final results! Whether you’re leaning toward Botox® or dermal fillers (or both), we want your injectable treatments to be successful, so we’ve compiled our top three tips for ensuring the best injectable result!

1. Pay attention to diet and lifestyle

When it comes to getting your best injectable result, there are a few things to avoid before your treatment! Consuming blood thinners before your treatment boosts your risk of bruising and swelling. Not sure what blood thinners to avoid? Some of them may surprise you! Alcohol, NSAIDS (pain killers such as Tylenol), garlic, ginkgo, ginseng and green tea are just a few. As for what you should eat, foods with anti-inflammatory properties can help reduce swelling. These include citrus, spinach, pineapple, strawberries, carrots and all other vitamin A-rich foods. Concerning your lifestyle, a few adjustments like avoiding heavy or intense exercise are important. Exercise boosts blood flow to the face, exacerbating swelling and bruising. Take it easy and be mindful of your healing — your skin will thank you for it!

2. Slow down and plan ahead

Dermal fillers offer immediate gratification, but that doesn’t mean you should expect to see your best results the day of your injectables session. Everyone knows injectables are not the type of aesthetic treatment to undergo the day you want to be “seen” at a party or event. That’s because, with any injection, there is a risk of swelling, bruising and pinpoint bleeding. Though side effects are mild and many patients experience little to no social downtime, it can take a week or two for any side effects to fully subside. What’s more, it can take up to a week or longer for your injectable results to fully settle into your facial contours. Plus, some injectable sessions require follow-up tweaks to ensure your results are balanced. All these factors are why planning ahead is so vital. Allow your body time to reveal your best results.

3. Be kind to your face

Your face needs time to heal after receiving injectables, so it’s important to avoid massaging, rubbing or applying pressure to the area. Though it may be tempting to have a facial right after Botox to keep the skin rejuvenation going, waiting at least two weeks after injections is necessary to avoid any potential problems. But don’t let this deter you from resuming your skin care regimen. As long as you’re gently washing your face and applying your regular products, your results won’t be harmed. You want to be kind to your skin to protect the healing process, especially during those first 24 to 48 hours. This includes using clean makeup brushes, applying strong sunscreen when in direct sunlight and avoiding heat from hot showers, saunas and tanning beds.

We hope these tips will help you come away from your injectables session with minimal side effects and looking your absolute best. Schedule your injectables appointment by calling (801) 852-0033 or request a consultation online today.
