So many unexpected changes have resulted from statewide closures, like not being able to get our Botox®! If you’re overdue for your next injectables session, we urge you to call us as soon possible because we are booking up fast. Plus, we’re offering 10% Botox and dermal fillers, so the timing is right for booking your treatment!
In the meantime, here are a few tips to help prepare your skin for your next injectables session so you can boost and prolong your benefits.
Start retinol or retinoid
Think of your skin as a balloon. If your balloon is frail and leaky, it can’t hold any volume of air for very long. To help your dermal fillers look their best, you’ll want to create a strong foundation of supple, healthy skin. The best way to do that is incorporating the daily application of retinol into your skin care regimen. Retinol, a vitamin A derivative, helps strengthen your skin by boosting new collagen and elastin growth. Retinol is backed by decades of clinical research. In fact, it’s the most widely studied and proven skin care treatment on the planet. For your best results, you’ll want to use a medical-grade retinol formulation. Retinol is a milder form of a retinoid, which is available by prescription (Retin A or its generic form trentinoin). We can help you choose the ideal product for your unique complexion needs during your consultation.
Watch your diet
Most people don’t realize how many natural blood-thinners they consume on a daily basis. Green tea, gingko, garlic and ginseng are just a handful of foods that thin your blood. NSAIDs are another, along with alcohol, of course. The problem with blood-thinners is they can increase your risk of bruising after your injectables session. Everyone responds to injectables differently, and some people are more prone to bruising than others. So, if you happen to bruise easily, this tip is a keeper. For your best results, we recommend cutting out blood thinners at least two weeks before your next injectables session, but preferably longer, if possible.
Remember, you look great! Injectables are a terrific tool that so many of us have learned to rely upon, but they only work to enhance what you already have. If you can’t get an appointment as soon as you would like, don’t panic, because you are still beautiful!
