Everyone wants to look and feel attractive in their own skin. This is why more people are now embracing safe and modern non-surgical cosmetic solutions like injectables to help them achieve their aesthetic goals.
Injectables are temporary but effective treatments for facial wrinkles and volume loss. Most are made from hyaluronic acid, a substance that is naturally produced by the body. This helps to ensure natural-looking results. Botox is another popular injectable treatment that can look very natural. With that said, not all injectable treatments are convincing.
Treatments like dermal fillers and Botox need to be subtle, uniform, and natural-looking so that they don’t end up undermining your beauty instead of enhancing it. But how can you make sure your results live up to your expectations? The following tips will help you get the most natural-looking results with injectables.
1. Choose a Qualified and Experienced Provider
The most important tip for getting great results is actually the simplest: just choose an experienced and reputable provider to perform your treatment! The simple action of choosing the right cosmetic surgeon or aesthetician can make the difference between looking elegant and refined or totally “overdone.”
Like all other cosmetic procedures, administering injectables is a delicate process that should only be performed by a skilled professional with extensive experience in cosmetic treatments and aesthetics. Therefore, you should do extensive research to find yourself a provider with a proven track record of excellent, natural-looking results.
Ideally, your plastic surgeon or aesthetician should also be creative and artistic. Finding a provider who checks all these boxes will not only ensure you get natural-looking results but increases the odds that you will also have a smooth and safe procedure without any future health or cosmetic complications.
2. Understand That Your Face is Unique
When it comes to injectables and other cosmetic procedures, it is vital for patients to understand that the face’s skin and muscle profile differs from one person to another—no two are the same. Because of this, a “cookie-cutter” approach to injectables simply doesn’t work.
You need a customized procedure specifically tailored for you to achieve your desired aesthetic goals. Your provider needs to use injectables that are compatible with your body and that suit your specific aesthetic needs.
If you have any pre-existing medical conditions, you should inform your provider during the consultation. They might need to take some extra precautions or suggest an alternative treatment plan for your safety.
3. Get Maintenance Treatments
Injectables are effective and reliable cosmetic treatments that are fairly long-lasting. However, the human body breaks down all injectable products eventually. Most fillers last for 6-12 months, although some last as long as two years. Botox usually lasts 3-4 months.
To maintain your results, you will have to go for touchup treatments every so often. This will not only help you preserve your confidence-boosting results but also ensure that your face continues to look as natural as possible.
4. Allow Sufficient Intervals Between Treatments
There is an intense excitement that comes with knowing you can easily achieve your beauty and aesthetic goals through a safe and minimally invasive cosmetic procedure. However, you need to manage that excitement so that you do not rush to have too many cosmetic treatments all at once just to “get there” faster.
This is because even though injectables are non-surgical and non-invasive, getting too many of them within a short period might be disruptive to the skin. Your provider can tell you which treatments are safe to combine.
Generally, it’s important to space out your treatments to allow your skin enough time to recover after each treatment. Letting some time elapse also enables you to monitor the effectiveness of the injectables you are using and informs your decision-making process going forward. All these will culminate in you getting results that are as natural-looking as possible.
5. Ensure Effective Communication with Your Doctor
Regardless of how good a tool or product is, it has to be used properly for good results. No matter how qualified and proficient your provider is, you will not achieve natural-looking results if you do not effectively communicate what you want before the treatment.
You must help your plastic surgeon or aesthetician understand exactly what you need them to do and what you expect the final result to look like. Armed with a clear understanding of your requirements, they can prepare adequately and figure out the best technique to achieve your goals.
This eliminates the problem of having to resort to corrective measures after you realize that the final result isn’t what you had envisioned. These corrections tend to take away the magic of your treatment. It is best to ensure that you and your provider are on the same page for the most natural-looking results possible.
