7 Things to Consider Prior to Getting Injectables in New Jersey


7 Things to Consider Prior to Getting InjectablesFacial aging varies from one person to another. Factors such as genetics and lifestyle influence when and where wrinkles develop in the face. It is also important to note that aging is caused by displacement or loss of fat, breakdown of elastin and collagen, as well as reduction of bone density. Apart from a New Jersey facelift, fillers and injectables are also an excellent option if you wish to lessen the signs of aging and maintain a youthful look.

During your initial consultation with Dr. Weinstein, he will assess your needs and preferences as well as present the pros and cons of each dermal filler available in the market today. Consider the following tips when preparing for injectables in New Jersey:

1. Moderate to severe bruising is a common occurrence following treatment. To prevent this from happening, avoid the following 2 to 4 weeks before your scheduled treatment:
– Vitamin E supplements
– Anti-Inflammatory drugs such as naproxen, ibuprofen (Advil), gingko biloba, and St. John’s Wort or any supplements/drugs which act as blood thinners

2. Ask your doctor about antiviral medications prior to treatment. This will help reduce the occurrence of developing an outbreak or lesion, particularly if you are prone to cold sores.

3. With Botox as an exception, do not plan your treatment within a few days of a significant event or occasion. All the swelling and bruising would still be visible even with the most effective concealer around.

4. Ensure that you have flexible cool compresses within 24 hours following treatment.

5. Secure a sweat-proof, rub-proof, and non-irritating concealer for touch-ups following treatment.

6. Do not undergo treatment if you are under the influence of controlled drugs.

7. If you had injectables in the past, notify your current doctor about what was injected, the amount injected, and where it was injected.
