Are you one of the many women (or men) out there thinking about getting cosmetic injections? Chances are that you’ve talked about it with a friend or family member, Googled it or watched injection procedures on YouTube. Sound familiar? Let’s take it one step further: are you still as unsure, if not more confused, than when you first started your research? If so, you’re not in the minority! There are so many sources of information out there (both good and bad) that it can be overwhelming to figure out truth from fiction and make an informed decision about what is the right choice for you!
The reality is that there are many facets of cosmetic injections to consider before deciding if it’s right for you. What you have injected is important, but who injects it is even more important. Cost is a factor, but understanding what the limitations and benefits of what you are buying will ultimately give you the best bang for your buck. Lastly, knowing what you want to target with injections (wrinkles vs volume vs shaping) will help you pick the product that’s best for you and ultimately, help your satisfaction with the treatment you choose.

Making the decision to have cosmetic injections is a personal one. No one can decide when you are ready to do it other than you. And when you are ready to move forward, make sure that you know what aspect of your appearance you want to address. The treatment of tired eyes is very different from that of hollow cheeks or heavy jowls. And there may be several options available to you for correction of your specific area of concern, so the more specific you are about your goals, the more options you may have to choose from to help you look your best.
Maybe you don’t have major things that bother you, but you want to be proactive about the aging process. No problem! Many women (and men) use cosmetic injections such as Botox and dermal filler to prevent the formation of facial lines and wrinkles as well as to stimulate and maintain youthful collagen or boost what they have naturally. That’s perfectly acceptable, but requires a bit different approach from someone who needs correction of an age related concern. Choosing an injector with a depth of knowledge and experience is crucial as you might imagine. It takes an aesthetic eye, a skillful hand and a deep understanding of each injectable product to tailor a treatment appropriate for every person’s specific, individual needs.
No matter where you’re starting in the process, having realistic expectations of what injection procedures can do for you is key to your success and happiness with your treatment. Talk to friends and family who’ve had injections and do some research on the specific procedure that you’re interested in. Find a dedicated injection practitioner with a history of experience in the field and ask questions. Understand every aspect of the procedure that you’re considering and know what it can and can’t do for you prior to sitting in the treatment chair. Together, you and your injector should develop a very detailed injection plan that both addresses your concerns and fits your lifestyle and budget. Remember, you are the most important factor in the success of your treatment. At Celibre Medical, we’ve found that educated, involved patients are the ones who have the most success and in the end, are the happiest with their treatment.
