Have you heard? Botox® and Juvéderm® have done it again, winning NewBeauty’s 2019 Best of the Best awards as two of the “Best In-office Treatments” for smoothing lines (Botox) and plumping lips (Juvéderm Volbella®).
We only offer the most acclaimed and trusted products and services because your satisfaction and safety are top priority. But when it comes to the results of your Botox® or dermal filler treatment, we can’t stress enough that the skill of your injector makes all the difference! It’s why we made it our policy that only our seasoned and highly acclaimed injectors can perform our injectables treatments. We perform so many successful injectable treatments that we’ve been awarded Top 200 Distinction in the country by Allergan, the maker of Botox and the Juvéderm® family of fillers.
We want your injectable treatments to be a success! To help you achieve optimal results, here are some insider tips from our award-winning injectors:
Do your homework.
By homework, we mean the things you can do at home to reduce your risk of side effects. Avoiding blood-thinning substances is a great start. This means stopping use of aspirin and ibuprofen (NSAIDS, or non-steroidal anti-inflammatories) as well as alcohol and the common supplements vitamin E, fish oil, flaxseed oil, St. John’s Wort, ginseng, and ginkgo. There are also blood-thinning foods to avoid, including garlic, ginger, green tea, olives, almonds, salmon, and the spice turmeric.
Now for foods you should consume, especially after your treatment. The following foods have anti-inflammatory properties and can help reduce swelling: all vitamin A-rich foods, citrus, carrots, sweet potatoes, kale, bell peppers, kiwi, strawberries, and pineapple.
Stick with the winners.
It’s your face. There’s no room for inexperience or mistakes. With any injection, there is always a risk of swelling, bruising, and pinpoint bleeding. But an experienced injector knows how to perform your treatment so your risk is drastically reduced. Though we can’t eliminate all side effects, we can certainly keep them to a minimum!
