What Should You Look for When Selecting an Injector?
Many people like the idea of injectables because they produce results without requiring surgery. Injectables can reduce fine lines, wrinkles, and frown lines and can be done in a fraction of the time and for a fraction of the cost. Many people opt for these non-surgical procedures because they can even be done during their lunch break. It doesn’t get much quicker than that!
But, if you’ve never had an injectable before, choosing the right product is just as important as choosing the right person to do the injection. As you consider injectables, let’s take a closer look at what you should look for when selecting an injector.
Someone Who Is Educated About the Products
Not all injectables are made the same. Some are neuromodulators and others are dermal fillers. Each product has a specific purpose and result. If the injector isn’t sure about the difference, you may be getting the wrong product. This could have damaging effects on your face.
Your injector should not only know the difference between products but also which products work best on certain parts of the face. They should also know how to do the procedure precisely. You don’t want your injector to guess where the needle needs to go. If that sounds scary, it’s because it is! Your injector should be confident in knowing everything about the process.
Someone Who Has Experience and Training
As you choose an injector, it’s important to have someone who has the experience and who is trained in the procedure. They have not only done countless procedures but also keep up-to-date with training and the latest products. While you may come into the office wanting one product, they may suggest something new that could do the job better. That’s just one sign that you’ve chosen the right injector. This assures that patients are getting the best treatment and excellent results.
Someone Who Asks Questions and Is Compassionate
Using injectables should be treated like any other medical procedure. The person doing it should ask questions about your medical history and any medications you are taking. They should also ask if you are pregnant or nursing. These questions will help your provider to determine if getting an injection is right for you. Many times, it is not medically safe for a patient to have an injectable procedure. The injector should have the ethics to say no when that is the case.
This is why you want the provider to be compassionate as well. Telling patients they can’t have a procedure done isn’t always easy. That’s why you want someone kind and understanding. This applies during the procedure as well. Even though the procedure is short, you still want someone gentle and understanding. They are injecting your face with a needle, so having someone with a gentle touch makes a difference.
Someone Who Can Give You a Natural Look
Just because you know you’ve had some work done doesn’t mean you want everyone else to know. When you’re selecting an injector, you want someone who will give you a natural look and won’t overdo it.
They’ll know what to do to give you a subtle, yet a complete procedure. Sometimes patients may think they want a look that is over the top and extremely unnatural. A good injector will be able to spot this, explain their recommendations, and make sure that the result is more natural.
If you want to see previous results from your injector, ask to see before and after photos. That will give you a good indication of the work that was done in the past and if you would be satisfied with that type of work.
