Your Guide to Achieving Natural-Looking Results with Injectables

How to achieve a natural look with injectables

As we age, it’s natural for the skin’s collagen and elastin production to decrease over time, leading to fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin. Luckily, injectables, including neuromodulators like Botox and Xeomin and dermal fillers like Juvedérm and Revanesse, can help plump and smooth out the skin. But there’s an art to this, and less is more. To achieve natural-looking results from injectables, check out these five expert tips that’ll help you reach your SkinFitness™ goals.

1. Choose an experienced aesthetic dermatological provider

First things first, you should do your research and always go with a trusted aesthetic dermatological provider like us! Our cosmetic treatments are performed by trained and experienced registered nurses, nurse practitioners, or physician associates, so you know you’ll get the best results possible from a skilled injector. In fact, OK Magazine rated LaserAway the top place to get Botox and other injectables.

If you don’t choose a trusted provider, you risk getting treated with counterfeit and diluted injectables, so you have to be careful! Going to an experienced injector who has an in-depth understanding of facial structure and anatomy will be able to deliver natural-looking results, taking into account your specific face shape.

2. Less is more

Start with a smaller amount if it’s your first time getting a neuromodulator or dermal filler. See how your face tolerates the product and allow it to settle in your face. This will help you achieve a natural-looking result, and you won’t look like you’ve had “work done.”

3. Choose the right injectable for your needs

Injectables, such as dermal fillers and neuromodulators, do different things. Botox and Xeomin, for instance, treat dynamic wrinkles, whereas Juvéderm and Revanesse have different formulations designed for specific areas of the face, like the lips or cheeks. Natural-looking results may require a combination of different types of injectables.

4. Follow pre and post-care instructions

To get the most out of your treatment, you should follow any and all pre and post-care instructions to a T to achieve the best results possible. This might mean avoiding working out or touching the area immediately after a neuromodulator treatment so the product doesn’t migrate.

5. Stay on top of your treatments

To maintain your natural-looking results, you’ll need to get touch-ups anywhere from once every 18 months to every three to four months, depending on the specific product used. More specifically, neuromodulators like Botox and Xeomin cause the facial muscles responsible for dynamic wrinkles to relax temporarily, and you’ll need treatments every two to four months to maintain results. The neat thing about neuromodulators is that when used early on, they can reduce the onset of wrinkles before they become moderate or severe. On the other hand, dermal fillers mainly address volume loss, such as thin lips, facial folds, and hollow cheeks, and you’ll need touch-ups every 12 to 18 months.

Injection is an art
