If it’s your first time getting facial injections, here are a few tips to help you calm your nerves:
Make sure the office you’re getting your injections at has a good reputation and that the medical practitioner administering your treatment has a thorough knowledge of facial anatomy and a good amount of experience performing facial injection treatments.
There is no such thing as a dumb question, especially when it comes to medical procedures. These are your injection treatments, so ask your medical practitioner anything and everything you’re curious about. Knowledge is power — the power to conquer your nervousness.
While this doesn’t affect how well the injections will work, it may cause you to experience more bruising than you might without exercising.
Unless you absolutely need to take them, avoid blood-thinning medications such as aspirin, Motrin, Aleve, ibuprofen, fish oils supplements, and Omega 3’s for at least a week before getting your injections. Thinner blood can lead to more bruising.
The key is being confident about your first time getting facial injections is knowing you’re in good hands. At Kessel Dermatology, you will be. For more information or to schedule an appointment, contact us today at 609-890-2600. Give us a call to schedule an appointment or book one online.
