What to Watch Out for With Mainstream Facial Injectables

Men and women use facial injectables to enhance their facial appearance without surgery. Yet there is a lot to consider before undergoing a facial injection procedure. Because if a person fails to account for all aspects of a facial filler treatment, he or she is unlikely to achieve the best-possible facial rejuvenation results.

Now, let’s take a look at five factors to consider prior to a facial injectable treatment.

1. Your Facial Rejuvenation Treatment Goals

Facial fillers serve different purposes, so it is important for an individual to select a facial injectable that corresponds to his or her facial rejuvenation treatment goals. Common facial fillers include:

  • Juvederm XC: Corrects moderate to severe facial lines and wrinkles.
  • Restylane: Improves facial volume and fullness and lip fullness.
  • Sculptra: Treats facial folds, wrinkles and other visible signs of aging in the face.

Dr. Babak Azizzadeh, a globally recognized facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon, tailors a facial injectable treatment to his patient. He understands facial injectables can help patients in different ways, and he wants each of his patients to accomplish their desired facial rejuvenation results. As such, Dr. Azizzadeh learns about a patient’s facial rejuvenation treatment goals and evaluates his or her facial appearance. Dr. Azizzadeh then crafts a custom treatment so each of his patients can get the most out of a facial injectable procedure.

2. Facial Filler Composition

Facial fillers consist of different substances to rejuvenate the skin. These substances include:

  • Hyaluronic Acid: This naturally occurring substance helps plump and hydrate the skin.
  • Calcium Hydroxylapatite (CaHA): Like hyaluronic acid, CaHA is a naturally occurring substance. It helps stimulate collagen production, as well as treat deep facial lines and wrinkles.
  • Poly-L-lactic Acid: This biodegradable, synthetic substance promotes collagen growth and smooths fine lines and wrinkles.

Dr. Azizzadeh analyzes a patient’s medical history before he performs a facial injectable procedure. That way, Dr. Azizzadeh can identify the right facial filler based on a patient’s medical history. And as a result, Dr. Azizzadeh can use a facial injectable to help his patient safely revitalize his or her facial appearance.

3. Facial Injectables Treatment Provider

When it comes to choosing a facial injectables treatment provider, it is often a good idea to err on the side of caution. By selecting an expert facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon like Dr. Azizzadeh, an individual can realize the full benefits of a facial injectable procedure.

Dr. Azizzadeh is ready to respond to a patient’s facial injectables concerns and questions, too. Then, each of Dr. Azizzadeh’s patients can make an informed facial filler treatment decision.

4. Facial Injections Treatment Results

Facial injectables are safe, effective facial rejuvenation treatments, but results may vary. In most instances, facial injectable treatment results become visible within a few days of a procedure. Meanwhile, treatment results are temporary, and they often last several months.

Dr. Azizzadeh helps his patients establish realistic facial filler treatment expectations. He outlines facial injectable procedures during a patient consultation to ensure his patients understand what to expect in the days, weeks and months after treatment.

5. Facial Injectables Side Effects

A typical facial filler treatment requires just minutes to perform, and most patients can return home shortly after a facial injectable procedure is completed. Yet some patients experience side effects in the first few days after a facial filler procedure, and these side effects include:

  • Bruising
  • Itching
  • Swelling
  • Redness
  • Pain

In rare instances, facial injectables may also cause one or more of the following severe side effects:

  • Infection
  • Filler leakage through the injection site
  • Movement of a filler from one area of the face to another
  • Blocked blood flow that leads to tissue death

He works diligently to customize a facial injectable treatment to his patient and performs each procedure with care and attention.
