In this episode Nurse Paula discusses both neuromodulators and dermal fillers as they are used together to turn back the clock on your face. If you’re a first-timer and are thinking about getting any kind of cosmetic injectable product, you’ll want to listen to this episode where you’ll learn about what to seek in a provider, what to expect during a treatment and after.
Hey everyone this is Nurse Paula Young from It’s a Young Thing podcast. Thanks for joining me this week. Now I’ve been getting an awful lot of questions from people that really don’t understand what it’s like to get cosmetic injectable products injected in their face. A lot of people are really scared about it so if you’re thinking about it for the first time there’s a couple of important facts that I really want to share with you. These are things that I hear everyday in the office, questions that people come in with. So let me see if I can help alleviate some of your misconceptions about getting cosmetic injectables.
There’s one thing that you’ve got to realize, there are so many products out there for your face you can’t even imagine. There’s various neuromodulators like Botox, Dysport and Xeomin. There’s a lot of dermal fillers and they’re coming out more and more every day. All these manufacturers keep coming out with this filler and that filler. Why? Because they provide instant results, results that last. And you know what? We are an instant result driven society. “I WANT IT, I WANT IT NOW. I want it to look great, and I want to walk out of here in half an hour and I’m going to look 10 years younger.” That’s the way our business is and that’s what people expect when they come in. Nobody wants to wait. Nobody wants downtime. Everybody wants to look 10 years younger, “I have a reunion this weekend. You know, help me look 10 years younger. I’ve got a job interview, I want to compete with the younger person that’s gone for my job next to me.” So that’s funny too because that’s another place you can use fillers, like the tops of your hands. If you’re an older person and you find that your hands look a little veiny on the top, we have a lot of patients coming in and getting dermal fillers injected on the top of their hands to make their hands look smoother and more youthful.
So, this is the “I want it and I want it now society”. So these are things you need to know. First of all you want to make sure that you understand what products you’re thinking about getting. The FDA approves these products that get injected into your skin and they are approved for different indications. And what I mean by that is some are approved for lips, some are approved for fine lines and wrinkles, some for hollow cheeks. You really have to know what the indications are because providers really should not inject outside of their indication. That’s what the FDA lists their guidelines for. And the other thing you have to know about these products is they have different chemical compositions. Therefore, they’re going to yield different types of results and
