Are you considering getting an injectable procedure done? If so, let us answer some of the most commonly asked questions.
- What are injectables? They are non-surgical solutions injected into an area to disguise or prevent signs of aging, add volume, create angles, or treat skin dissatisfaction.
- Are injectables for me? They may be for you. There has been a huge growth in the use of injectables in recent years. People trying to perform them with illegal or unbranded injectables, have been popping up everywhere. It’s important to only choose getting an injectable procedure done at a medical facility such as San Francisco Facial Plastic Surgery.
- What can I expect after I get my injectable? You can anticipate minor swelling, redness and bruising, which can last a few hours to up to a week or so. Once all swelling and bruising goes away, you’ll be able to enjoy the results right away. Your results can last from a few months to a couple of years. The longevity of your procedure depends on the fillers that were used.
- Are there any limitations to injectables? Yes, they can provide fullness, however they cannot lift or tighten your sagging skin. If you attempt to use too much, it may achieve an unnatural appearance to the area.
