Understanding Facial Injectables for Anti-Aging
A wealth of information about facial injectables is available via the internet. Nevertheless, several of these sources have information that is incomplete or outright contradictory to medical science. Dr. Sandhu of Neem Medical Spa works hard to ensure that each of her clients has a complete understanding of the procedure before being treated.
INJECTABLES & ANTI-AGING
THE LOOK OF INJECTABLE TREATMENTS
A common misconception about injectables is that the aftereffects look unnatural. In truth, the product may not be the problem. The problem could be the person providing the procedure. Just because a physician can provide the procedure at their facility doesn’t mean that they should. Bad work directly relates to the expertise of the injector. A good practitioner has a full grasp of facial anatomy and realizes that aim is to rejuvenate your appearance rather than change it – a difference that Dr. Sandhu understands. As a board-certified internal medicine physician with 10 years of hospital medicine experience, Dr. Sandhu has a special interest in anti-aging and aesthetic medicine and has had years of training in advanced cosmetic procedures and medical weight loss.
LONGEVITY OF INJECTABLE TREATMENTS
Whenever you read an advertisement for products like Dysport® or Kybella®, there is typically a “lasts up to” disclaimer displayed. This disclaimer has led to a misconception that treatments will wear off within a given period. Nevertheless, a variety of factors affect the longevity of results including:
- Product used
- The injection site
- Lifestyle of the client
As a rule of thumb, your initial treatments should be more frequent but begin to increase the longevity of treatments.
SAFETY OF INJECTABLE COSMETIC PRODUCTS
It is always wise to do your research before introducing a foreign agent to your body. If a substance has not been thoroughly tested and approved for human use, it is wise to avoid it. Botox®, Juvederm®, Restylane®, Dysport®, Kybella® and all the injectables we offer at Neem Medical Spa have all passed extensive testing and FDA approval. Neem Medical Spa only uses products that have a proven track record of effectiveness and that utilize naturally occurring substances.
