Injectables have turned out to be the hottest aesthetic treatment this summer, and while they have always secured a top spot in terms of popularity, some say this spike in demand can be attributed to all the video conferencing we are doing these days! Thanks to the pandemic and working from home more frequently, many of us are watching ourselves on the screen more than ever before, which could be making us more aware of our appearances (and flaws) as we perceive them.
If you can relate, we’re here to tell you that you do not need to worry about your appearance! You are amazing! For starters, you are making it through this pandemic with flying colors and you should feel proud of yourself. Second, here at Abilene Plastic Surgery & MedSpa, we want you to love your reflection in the mirror or when you see yourself on Zoom, and we are eager to help! If you’re looking to freshen up and smooth away lines and wrinkles — to give yourself a lift with little to no downtime — our master injectors are trained to give you the results you want.
Here are a few pointers for getting the most out of your next injectables session!
Design an injectables schedule.
Did you know that undergoing periodic and routine injectables treatments saves you money in the long term? This is because injectables offer buildable benefits, so the more you do, the less product you actually need to maintain your benefits. While it seems like a lot to schedule Botox® a year in advance, it’s really not. Breaking down the math, Botox typically provides up to four months of benefits, so that translates into about three treatments per year. (Some prefer to do it just twice a year.) For dermal fillers, the duration of benefits varies depending on the type of fillers you use. Volbella® for subtle lip enhancement may require one treatment per year, while Voluma® for the cheeks can provide up to two years of benefits! Juvéderm® typically offers 12 to 18 months of benefits, making it super easy to plan out when you need to call to schedule. This brings us to the next tip…
Call months ahead, well before you need your next treatment, to schedule your next injectables session with us! Due to pent up demand, our book has been filling up fast. Ideally, you should schedule your next injectables session when you have noticed that your benefits have subsided but aren’t yet desperate for improvements. By the time you are truly desperate, it may be difficult to fit you in. Don’t chance it — plan ahead!
Take care of your skin
Yes, you can enhance the benefits of your injectables! If you want to look younger and maintain your youthful appearance, you need to keep strengthening the foundation of your skin at a cellular level. This starts with the daily application of medical-grade skin care products featuring retinol, a vitamin A derivative that is clinically proven to help speed cellular turnover and trigger new collagen and elastin growth for thicker, smoother, younger looking skin. Other ingredients you’ll find in our professional skin care lines which help to renew and revitalize your skin include alpha hydroxy acid, peptides, antioxidants and hyaluronic acid, to name just a few well-known skin helpers.
