Tips That Help You Maximize Your Injectable Treatments

Tips That Help You Maximize Your Injectable Treatments

In the anti-aging world, injectables are much-sought-after treatments that smooth and add volume to the skin, erase fine lines and wrinkles, plump up hollow areas of your face, minimize scarring, and more. 

But even though injectable treatments do many things, you should get your doctor’s guidance about what type — a dermal filler or neurotoxin treatment — is best for reaching your goals. 

Each treatment is meant for specific parts of your face and ease creases that develop due to either repetitive facial movements or skin laxity that develops over time.

Dr. Sharon Gertzman offers only the best injectable treatments and has extensive experience administering them, which puts our patients at ease. Our Serenity Medical Spa team is dedicated to finding the right service or treatment for you, educating you about it, and delighting with you as the fantastic results emerge. 

Anti-aging injectable options: The lowdown

You’ve got many injectable treatment options, and we’re here to help you determine which ones are the best fits for you. 

We alluded to the two primary types of injectable treatments earlier, but here’s a bit more detail:

Neurotoxins treat dynamic wrinkles — the type caused by moving your facial muscles over and over for years — and address vertical lines that develop between your eyebrows, horizontal forehead lines, and crow’s feet.

One of the neurotoxins we offer is DysportⓇ, an ideal treatment if you want to subdue these types of wrinkles and areas of your face. Its effects are long-lasting — up to five months. 

Dermal fillers, on the other hand, address static wrinkles. These develop because as you age, you produce less and less collagen and elastin — the proteins critical to skin resilience. 

Dermal fillers plump your lips and reduce the nasolabial folds that run from your nose to the corner of your mouth, and add volume to the upper portions of your cheeks. They also minimize what are known as marionette lines, which begin at the corner of your mouth and move down toward your chin. 

We offer a wide rage of dermal fillers that are aimed at correcting specific issues, including: 

Each filler addresses the particular area of your face you’re looking to refresh. Another reason patients love these treatments is that the results last from three months to two years, depending on the treatment used. 

When you and Dr. Gertzman decide which treatment is right for you, you learn what the treatment involves, how we ensure your comfort, and your treatment schedule. You’ll be well on your way to looking renewed and feeling more confident.

You’re thrilled with your injectable treatment results — now what? 

We know you’ll be pleased with all the benefits your injectable treatment offers — it’s noninvasive, involves only a quick office visit, requires no downtime, and is budget-friendly. 

Now you want to know how you can optimize and prolong the results from your treatment. Dr. Gertzman counsels you on how you can preserve your injectable treatment results, so you look great for as long as possible:

1. Follow Dr. Gertzman’s aftercare instructions scrupulously

Depending on the treatment you get, recommendations may include refraining from touching or stretching your treatment site and steering clear of intense exercise for a day or two. Sleeping on your back is also a good idea, and if you get Dysport treatment, don’t lay down for 4-6 hours afterwards.

It’s important, too, to be mindful of your alcohol consumption and avoid the sun and being in environments that are very hot. 

2. Practice sensible overall self-care

After your treatment, eat well, stay hydrated, and get enough rest. Your immune system will be better supported, so you can heal optimally. 

It’s also critical to avoid using tobacco and keeping stress at bay as best you can.

3. Use only the best skincare products

Fortunately, we offer the superlative ZOⓇ Skin Health skin care line, developed by renowned dermatologist Dr. Zein Obagi. The proper regimen goes a long way in giving your skin the TLC needed to keep your injectable results looking tip-top.

4. Observe your maintenance plan

Dr. Gertzman advises you on what your treatment schedule should be, and this is based on varied factors, from the treatment you received to your individual skin’s needs and your goals. 

5. Choose an extraordinary provider

We’re happy to say you’ve done this by selecting Dr. Gertzman. You’re in the best hands at Serenity Medical Spa, no matter which injectable treatment you choose.

You won’t be disappointed with the results of the injectable treatment you select, and we help you maintain your results so you can face each day feeling — and looking — like a million bucks.
