If you are considering injectables for the first time, whether it be Botox or filler, you may be a bit nervous and fearful. This is completely understandable, as getting any procedure done for the first time can be quite intimidating (especially when it involves needles!).
If you have any questions that you feel need to be answered or you just want general information on these types of procedures so you make a more informed decision, we here at Ava Laser Clinic are here to help. With our information, you can get a better insight on how these treatments work and if they’re the right fit for you and your beauty needs.
As with any treatment, the benefits will often outweigh the cons depending on who you ask. After all, these procedures were designed with a specific goal in mind: to make the patient feel better about their appearance. Some of the many benefits Botox & filler have to offer are listed below.
A huge advantage to getting temporary fillers and other injectables is that the appointments are super quick. If you have a busy schedule and need a treatment that can easily be squeezed into that timeframe, chances are Botox+filler is the choice for you. There are often little to no side effects other than some puffiness/bruising, and in general specialists will recommend a couple days for recovery.
This may come as a surprise, but injectables can actually work with your skin care routine to keep your skin looking rejuvenated, healthy and bright. Patients that have gotten this treatment have noticed that skin treatments spread on the skin much smoother and evenly than without the extra help from injectables. They also smooth out fine lines, making each step of a skin care routine stand out even more. When you want to enhance not just your skin, but the routine you put it through, this treatment is great.
This is another benefit that a lot of people may not be aware of. With the help of muscle relaxing injectables, many patients across the world have noticed a decrease in certain ailments such as headaches, migraines, excess sweat and muscle pain. Experts can attest to this statement as well.
If you happen to get hyaluronic acid fillers, you have the potential of seeing a big shift in your skin’s moisture retention. If you suffer from TMJ, get Botox and you’ll likely notice a huge improvement in your jaw muscles. It sounds crazy, but there are a lot more benefits than you’d initially expect when it comes to these treatments.
Like anything in life, there will always be a counteract. Although there are a lot of positives when it comes to these types of treatments, there are negatives as well. We have listed some of these cons below.
While these treatments have been proven to change the look of your skin + face, sometimes it takes more than just one treatment to get to the result you want. Some fillers can come out looking way more dramatic/minimal than you expected, and this back and forth game of how many treatments should be performed can get tricky. While this journey to getting the perfect results you’ve always wanted can be complex, it becomes a lot easier when you work with a team that cares (such as ours here at Ava Laser Clinic). Also be sure to talk to your doctor + specialist about exactly what you’re looking for. Communication is key.
Since injectables require inserting needles into the skin, the chance for bruising is almost always there. Everyone is different in this regard, and while some people will bruise more than others, this bruising can be minimized by following the right pre-care/post-care routine. This will often include avoiding exercise the day of treatment, avoiding vitamins/foods that increase bruising (Aspirin,.), and staying away from alcohol the day before + the day of treatment.
