How to Extend the Results of Your Injectable Treatments

How to Extend the Results of Your Injectable TreatmentsYou love the look of your injectable treatments you receive here at Beatitude Aesthetic Medicine & Acne Center and want the results to last as long as possible. What can you do? Although the results injectable treatments (like Botox and Juvederm) are temporary, there are a few things you can do to extend them and to get the most bang for your buck. These tips will help you look fabulous longer.

Choose the Right Injector

When it comes to dermal fillers and Botox, skill matters. The right injector knows where to place each injection for optimal results. They will understand how each filler can work together for synergistic results. Dr. Chang is one of the few U.S. physicians to achieve Platinum Plus injector status as a single injector. She has the skill and experience to ensure that you’ll get the best possible results (both in effect and longevity) from each set of injections you receive.

Use Treatments Together

Juvederm provides amazing results on its own, but when paired with Botox, it’s even better. By relaxing facial muscles that cause wrinkling, Botox can extend the results you see from a dermal filler treatment. This allows the filler to last longer and also leads to fewer wrinkles caused by muscle movement. Ask Dr. Chang which injectable products she recommends for your face. Often a combination of multiple fillers and Botox yields the best results.

Take Care of Your Skin

There’s much we can do to reverse the signs of aging and prior skin abuse, but better than reversal is prevention. Take care of your skin after injectable treatments. These skincare strategies will help:

  • Use Sunscreen– If you’re going outside, you need sunscreen. Wear at least an SPF 15 sunscreen each day, higher if you’ll be spending time in the sun.
  • Choose Products Carefully– There’s a big difference between medical grade skin care products and the face lotions you find at your local drug store. Top quality products give your skin everything it needs to look great. Try our line of ZO products created by Dr. Zen Obagi.
  • Follow a Skin Care Regimen– It’s easy to get lazy with your skin care, but you shouldn’t. Daily attention to your skin is your skin’s equivalent of eating healthy or brushing your teeth. Taking care of your skin makes a big difference in your appearance between filler treatments.

Follow the Schedule

When you come in for injectable treatments, Dr. Chang will work with you to create a custom treatment plan. This plan will include her recommendations for injectable treatments and a schedule for how often treatment is needed. Follow her scheduling recommendation. When you come in on schedule less product is often needed and the results are better.

Patient Stories Dr. Chang has an eye for symmetry and aesthetics. I went in for a consultation to have fillers under my eyes. Instead I was educated on my facial anatomy. I agreed to some fillers in my forehead and cheeks instead and could not be more pleased with the outcome.
