Four important questions to ask during a consult for Cosmetic Injectables

If you have thought about having a Cosmetic Injectables treatment, consider these questions during the consultation with your medical professional:

 

1: What qualifications do they have?

A Cosmetic Injector must be a medical doctor, dentist, or registered nurse.

 

2: Can you show me some before and after shots of patients you have treated previously?

This is a great way to see a number of different outcomes of treatments the medical professional has performed. The desired effect you want to achieve may differ from another person and this needs to be conveyed and agreed upon before proceeding.

 

3: What brand of product do you inject with?

Injectors will have a preferred brand they use for both anti-wrinkle and dermal filler treatments and some may even offer options. Go with the advice of your injector because they will have a preferred option for a reason namely:

  • they may find a particular brand easier to administer
  • through their years of experience, they will have a good idea on each brand’s effectiveness.

 

4: What are the potential risks or side effects?

Any medical treatment, no matter how small, has an inherent risk or side effect attached. It is important that your injector discuss this with you, so you can make an informed decision.
