Injectables are safe and scientifically proven to deliver smoother and more youthful looking skin. However, results can vary depending on who you choose as your injectables aesthetician. Unfortunately, there are a number of people operating under false pretenses whose practices could be harmful to your health. If you want successful results, only a certified and qualified injector should be contacted – someone who has advanced training in the technology, and extensive experience in skin care. We’ve put together this short guide to help you choose an injectables aesthetician that’s qualified and experienced to get the best results for your skin. Here’s what to look for.

They Will Talk About Your Goals

The first meeting that you have with a clinician should be in the form of a consultation. This should be a face-to-face meeting that discusses your goals, analyzes your skin health, and outlines the available options for your skin type. If the office you visit skips over this step and pushes for you to get the procedure right there on the spot, you should be cautious. A qualified clinician will always analyze your face and develop a customized plan to help you achieve your goals properly.

They Will Discuss a Treatment Plan

If you’ve found a coupon online for a one-time discount, this may not deliver the results you’re hoping for. Not every issue can be treated in just one session. For long-lasting results, clients often require more than one single injection. So if your clinician is only trying to sell you a one-time injection and isn’t talking about a treatment plan, then they’re likely only interested in making a quick dollar. A proper injectables program will require regular maintenance to achieve the best results possible.

They Will Review Your Results

A professional clinician will also take detailed notes, a number of photographs, and review your results after your treatment.  If you’re simply brought in and quickly ushered out, it’s a sign that you should see someone else.

They Can Answer All Your Questions

Don’t be afraid to ask questions. If you’re asking questions that are getting side-stepped, it’s likely that the provider you’re talking too isn’t trained in injectables. Only a qualified and top-of-the-line injector will be able to answer any concerns with full transparency and have extensive knowledge of the process.

They Don’t Pressure You

Professional aestheticians will never pressure their patients into doing things they are not comfortable with. If you’re hesitant and they’re still trying to push you into an injectables treatment, you should press pause and consider going somewhere else.

They Are Open About the Side Effects

Some fillers have potential side effects and require a certain amount of recovery time. If your aesthetician avoids talking about the potential risks and side effects involved, you should be concerned. A provider should be comfortable explaining all the facts about the procedure to you – positive or negative – so that you can make a well-informed decision.

They Offer a Number Of Treatment Mediums

Be cautious if the clinician only offers one type of medium. A professional skin care aesthetician will offer multiple options for fillers and anti-ageing treatments. If they only swear by one type, they are likely focusing on their own bottom line as opposed to finding the best solutions for their customers’ unique needs.

They Know When Enough Is Enough

When it comes to injectables, there really can be too much of a good thing. Only choose an injectables aesthetician who outlines what the recommended dosage is and who won’t  sway from what the manufacturer claims. If they’re trying to get you to come back sooner than what is considered normal, consider it a red flag.

The Prices Are Reasonable

We all love a good deal. However, if the prices are much lower than what is offered at other clinics, this can also be a bad sign. Injectables hold a certain value, and a low cost could indicate a scam, a counterfeit product, or a poor quality medium. When it comes to medical procedures, non-invasive or not, you should always do your research and only get injected by a reputable company.

They Operate Out of a Clinic

More and more unqualified people are advertising as trained aestheticians. Finding someone online who doesn’t work from an actual clinic could be risky. There’s likely a reason they are operating out of their basement and not in a regulated medical clinic. Even if they have credentials or used to work in a respectable clinic, you’ll want to find out why they are no longer there before proceeding. It could be due to poor practice or even legal reasons.

They Have a Glowing Reputation

Lastly, you want to ensure that the injectables aesthetician that you’re about to see has years of experience and a glowing reputation to boot. You’ll find reviews, testimonials and they won’t be shy about sharing their list of happy customers.
