Whether you’re looking to smooth away the appearance of lines and wrinkles or add volume to your cheeks and lips, injectable treatments can be an effective choice.

If you’re new to these popular non-surgical cosmetic treatments, keep these three tips for getting injectable fillers and BOTOX® in mind.

  1. Pick a Reputable Provider

    Although injectable treatments like fillers and BOTOX don’t require surgery or even extensive downtime, they still need to be administered by a trained, experienced professional. Prior to scheduling an appointment, do your research to find a qualified provider with ample experience and positive reviews from previous clients.

  2. Do Your Research

    Injectable treatments should ideally be performed in a plastic surgeon’s office.

    There are many different types and brands of injectable treatments available, so come into your consultation with an idea of what you might want.

    Neurotoxins like BOTOX are most commonly used to temporarily erase fine lines and wrinkles in the forehead, brow and eye areas. Injectable fillers, on the other hand, are best used for smoothing away wrinkles in the mid-face area, such as the nasolabial folds and “bar code” lines above your upper lip, as well as adding volume to your cheeks and lips.

  3. Plan around Important Events

    Although fillers and BOTOX are often referred to as “lunchtime procedures,” you really don’t want to schedule your first treatment the day of your wedding, for example, or another big event. Swelling and bruising are common side effects after any injectable treatment, and both filler and BOTOX can take up to two weeks to develop full results.
