Decide what you would ideally like to improve on your face. Start with your forehead. Frown lines? Elevens? Crows Feet around the eyes? Or would you like to add some volume to your lips or cheeks?
Do you have other areas of the face that could use dome plumping such as the marionette lines or nasolabial folds around the mouth?
All of these issues can be addressed with a Neuromodulator and Dermal Filler.
For those unfamiliar with these terms, Botox is the brand name for a neuromodulator. One function of a neuromodulator is to relax facial muscles to minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Dermal Filler has a different function. Its purpose is to add volume to areas of the face that have either lost volume due to age and genetics or to help contour and add volume for a more voluptuous; aesthetically pleasing appearance.
Seek a Consultation 6 months before the Big Event
Meet with an experienced Cosmetic Injector to get an idea about what products you will need, how much it will cost and how many weeks prior is ideal for your treatment. If adjustments to your treatment are required, you will then have plenty of time to do so.
Choose an Experienced and Skilled Cosmetic Injector
Many may call themselves Cosmetic Injectors however not all are created equal. Training and expertise play a role in the skill set of the Injector. Some areas of the face are considered “advanced indications” that require a very skilled and experienced hand. Do your research prior to scheduling your first appointment.
Ask Questions of Your Injector
Not only should you ask your Injector about their experience, but you should also inquire about the products they will be using. All Injectables are not all alike. Neuromodulators fall under the brand names Botox, Dysport and Xeomin. Dermal Fillers come in different consistencies and quality. Commonly known brands are Juvaderm, Voluma, RHA, Restylane, Stylage and many more.
