The Non-Aesthetic Perks of Injectables
By Atlanta Plastic & Reconstructive Specialists, on August 15, 2021
When you think about the benefits of injectables, what comes to mind? Probably treatment of unwanted lines and wrinkles, or overall rejuvenation of the face. But our patients at Atlanta Plastic & Reconstructive Specialists also rave about the ease of dermal filler treatment. Here are just a few of the things they love so much about fillers:
Injectable procedures are quick. Though we will always take the time to make sure you are comfortable and satisfied, our team at Atlanta Plastic & Reconstructive Specialists is also committed to getting you back on your way rather than lingering in the office unnecessarily. Many of our injectable patients pop in and out during their lunchbreaks.
There Is No Downtime
Following that quick appointment, you are free to leave and resume your usual activities. Whether that means returning to work, picking up your kids from school or meeting up with friends, you will not have to commit to time in bed as you would with more invasive cosmetic procedures. We do advise that you avoid intense exercise for the first couple of days, as it can aggravate swelling and bruising.
Side Effects Are Minimal
Injectables usually involve minimal or no pain. While you may experience momentary soreness from the needle, numbing agents are often used to limit that discomfort.
Afterwards, there may be moderate swelling, bruising and redness, but this should fade within a matter of days. Many patients find it relatively easy to conceal these effects with makeup, so coworkers and acquaintances are none the wiser as the filler slowly takes effect.
They Are Temporary
At first glance, you may assume this would be considered a downside of injectables, but it is actually appealing to patients who are on the fence about making cosmetic improvements. Knowing that the results will fade in time gives some patients the confidence to give it a try. While many patients wind up returning for additional treatment to maintain their new look, knowing injectables are reversible provides peace of mind.
You Can Perfect the Look
Some patients decide to return for a slight adjustment to their injectable treatment. Our team can make slight changes to provide you with the look you desire.
Atlanta Plastic & Reconstructive Specialists offers Juvederm, Botox, Restylane and Sculptra in our Northside and Piedmont West offices. To experience the perks of injectables for yourself, schedule an appointment with us at your nearest convenience.
