Why You Shouldn’t Trust Just Anyone to Administer Your Injectables

Comments Off
Dermal fillers are nonsurgical treatments that quickly restore lost volume around your cheeks and improve the natural contours of your face. There are many factors that influence the outcome of your treatment, including the person you choose to administer your injections.At Bergen Aesthetics, we offer Botox® and popular dermal fillers like Restylane® to address wrinkles and facial creases that become more common with age. Heripsime Ohanian, PhD, MD, FACOG, creates a care plan to your unique aesthetic goals and the condition of your skin.

Benefits of cosmetic injectables

Cosmetic injectables are a minimally invasive treatment to address visible signs of aging and avoid the potential risks of surgery.

Bergen Aesthetics offers personalized injectable services for adults who are dissatisfied with their appearance because of:

  • Wrinkles
  • Fine lines
  • Sagging skin
  • Nasolabial folds
  • Lost facial volume

We can also use injectable fillers to increase the volume of your lips and improve their shape, recontour your cheeks and jawline, and enhance the overall contours of your face.

Botox is not a filler but an injectable medication that temporarily paralyzes the muscles that contribute to frown lines across your brow and crow’s-feet around the eyes. Botox injections help you maintain a more youthful, alert appearance with results that last for three months or longer.

Importance of vetting your injectable provider

If you receive treatment from an unqualified provider, you might be at increased risk of complications that alter your appearance in an unfavorable way. Additionally, inexperience with injectables can jeopardize your health in multiple ways.

When you plan to undergo an injectable procedure, the most important thing you can do is find a trained practitioner like Heripsime Ohanian.

Dr. Ohanian is highly skilled at using precise amounts of fillers or Botox to ensure your results are natural and long-lasting. She also prioritizes your health and safety at each visit to prevent aesthetic errors and medical complications.

You can meet with Dr. Ohanian ahead of your treatment to discuss your expectations and aesthetic goals. She confirms you’re a candidate for treatment and also determines which fillers you need based on the severity of the skin flaws you want to address.

Consequences of poorly administered injectables

Receiving fillers from an untrained person can lead to a range of health complications, including:

  • Bleeding
  • Infection
  • Rashes
  • Ulcerations
  • Scarring

Improperly administered dermal fillers can also lead to aesthetic issues like asymmetrical results that look unnatural.

If an untrained provider injects too much or too little Botox, it can lead to unwanted and unpleasant results. Side effects of improper Botox injections can include severe bruising, facial weakness, skin drooping, and headaches.

The best way to avoid complications is to be diligent about selecting a trained medical provider in advance and following their guidance about your treatment options. Dr. Ohanian can put you at ease and answer any questions you have, so you feel confident about moving forward with your injectable therapies.
