You have made the decision to get an injectable treatment. Refreshed, youthful, wrinkle free-skin is in your future. Make the most out of it! At Mouchantat Plastic Surgery, we want to ensure that you are as prepared as possible. Increase your odds of a successful experience with these helpful tips!
Find an Experienced Injector
When it comes to injectables, experience counts! Do your research and make sure you choose a well-qualified injector. Not all injection techniques are created equal and good results are dependent on the injector’s skill. As a board certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Mouchantat has both the training and understanding of facial balance to give you the best, most natural-looking possible results.
Take Your Safety Into Account
For your safety, it is important to disclose your medical history. During your consultation, Dr. Mouchantat will ask about any allergies, medical conditions, or medication you are on. Knowing your full medical history helps Dr. Mouchantat determine which injectable treatment is right and safe for you.
Injectable treatments like Botox® and fillers can drastically refresh your look, but it is important to have realistic expectations going into your treatment. You will appear younger—just maybe not 20 years younger. Dr. Mouchantat will work with you to create a personalized treatment plan that addresses your needs—and, if needed, talk about other treatments and procedures that might be more beneficial for your specific goals.
Be on the Same Page
Dr. Mouchantat strives to ensure the best experience and results possible. The more we know about your expectations, the better we can help you achieve them. Questions to consider: What facial area (or areas) do you want treated? How long do you expect your results to last? And, what is your ideal look?
Avoid Blood Thinners
If at all possible, do not take blood thinners for a week before as bruising is more likely to occur. Common blood thinners include Aspirin, Ibuprofen, Motrin, and Aleve. Supplements include Fish Oil, Omega 3, and Vitamin E. If you find yourself in excruciating pain, know that Tylenol is a safe alternative. Also, alcohol tends to thin blood. Please feel free to ask Dr. Mouchantat if you have any questions regarding medications or supplements.
Take the Right Supplements
Whereas some supplements increase bruising, a few have been shown to help prevent bruising. Taking Arnica and Bromelain decreases your chances of bruising. Looking for a tasty way to get your supplement? Bromelain is a pineapple-based enzyme.
