Pre Treatment Guide For Injectables
What Are Injectables?
Injectables are one of the most popular cosmetic treatments available today. Typically, injectables are used to relax facial muscles, contour or augment parts of the body or improve facial fat loss. Due to its quick downtime and low-risk, this procedure is a favorite for anyone looking to restore their youthful appearance and soften signs of aging.
Elan Skin provides a full complement of injectable procedures depending on your target area of concerns.
Botox injections temporarily relax facial muscles to prevent or smooth out existing wrinkles and restore skin to a more youthful appearance.
Fillers are a type of injection that uses hyaluronic acid base gel (a substance created naturally by your body) to add volume to areas such as eyes, jawlines and lips. There are a wide variety of Allergan and Galderma fillers available at Elan Skin.
Kybella® is an FDA-approved injectable treatment for adults that permanently destroys fat cells under the chin for a gradually improved profile – whether you have a moderate amount of fullness, or a bit more.
How To Prepare for an Injectable Treatment
- To reduce risk of bleeding and bruising, avoid the following for 2 days prior to treatment:
- Alcoholic beverages
- Vitamin E
- Ginkgo Biloba
- Fish Oil
- If you have a history of oral herpes simplex, you should be pre-treated prior to any lip enhancement procedure
What To Expect During Your Injectable Treatment
Injectable procedures involve the insertion of FDA approved chemicals beneath the skin via a fine needle. For most patients, the treatment will be relatively short, with some patients being administered to and complete with their procedure in less than 10 minutes. However, the length of your procedure depends on your personal needs as well as other factors. Some patients will see results rather quickly following their injectable procedure though it can take up to 7-10 days to see “final results”.
