"I've been thinking of doing something for a long time, but I'm scared/nervous"
Updated: Jan 7, 2019
First off, this is nothing to be ashamed of or try to hide. Medical aesthetics and cosmetic injectables are the last line of non-surgical alterations that can be made and you should use the anxiety surrounding this as motivation to do your research and make sure that you find a strong injector that you are comfortable with. Educate yourself so that you know what to look for when you meet with a potential provider.
Most of this fear is largely rooted in a lack of knowledge, bad previous experience, media misinterpretation, or any combination of these factors. A trained professional's first goal should be to teach and educate their clients about the procedures they are wondering about. This process is also part of any informed consent, meaning that you should not give anyone permission to perform medical procedures on you until you are well aware of the potential risks, side effects and have realistic expectations.
The more you learn, the less scary it is. The products themselves are very safe to use, but this is contingent on the practitioner's knowledge of anatomy, technique and management of adverse situations. This is why we at S.M.L.L Skin Solutions will always offer free consults so that our clients learn about the best ways that we can help them reach their goals and treat their concerns.
