8 Great Tips and Tools to Use in Preparing for Your Facial Injection Treatment

How Do Facial Injections Help Fight The Effects Of Aging?

As we age, our skin loses elasticity. We see our facial volume decline and our cheeks getting flatter. Our temples look hollower as does the area under our eyes. You will notice an overall shift in volume and balance.

We can fix all that with our incredible line of facial injections in Las Vegas! We use industry leader Galdema’s hyaluronic acid dermal filler family. Restylane-L, Restylane Lyft, Restylane Contour, Restylane Refyne, Restylane Defyne and Restylane Kysse each target a specific strategy to perfect your facial features. These facial filler injections restore volume, as our Sculpt Spa experts create natural balance and symmetry to your face and highlight your best features.

Some clients express a fear of needles and/or injections. This condition is also known as trypanophobia. It can lead people to delay or avoid medical care, dentist visits, maintaining prescribed treatments, obtaining important diagnostic testing or lab work, keeping up with important vaccinations and avoiding facial injections.

The injections are administered in our plush comfortable surroundings. You will feel comfortable with the anesthetics that we use. If you still have some anxiety and want to make the facial injection adventure as pleasant as possible, here are a few tips and tools that will help and are recommended for those dealing with trypanophobia:

1.     Dress ready
Wear comfortable clothing so you feel like you are lounging and ready to go as soon as you arrive.

2.     Bring and use a stress ball
Stress balls were created specifically for remedying stress and tension. They are very effective as not only a stress relief tool, but other organic deeper body coping health benefits as well. Studies show that when you squeeze a stress ball, your nerves and muscles stimulate and contract which makes them stronger. The strength improves the overall nervous system, which reduces essential hormones and can control your stress levels.

3.     Communicate your preferences to your clinician
Tell your Sculpt Spa expert your comfort preferences. Let her know if you want your eyes closed, that you don’t want to know the exact moment of injection, if you want a tap or other distraction, etc.

4.     No Java stops on the way to your appointment
Skip all caffeine consumption prior to your appointment.

5.     Do some deep breathing while you wait for your appointment
When you are anxious, you tend to take rapid shallow breaths that come directly from your chest. This is called thoracic breathing, and it causes a disruption of your oxygen and carbon dioxide levels. Your body will increase its heart rate and send a stress response to your nervous system. This can make your entire body tense and increase the difficulty of your injections. Instead, consciously practice deep breathing while you wait. Exhale to a count of four, hold your lungs empty for a count of four, inhale for a count of four and hold the air in your lungs for a count of four, exhale and repeat. This stimulates your parasympathetic nervous system which regulates your heartbeat, blood flow and deactivates your stress response.

6.     Put your thoughts about discomfort in perspective
This may be the ultimate mental psyche-out. There are many instances that you have encountered that were more painful than what you are about to experience: a paper cut, stepping on your child’s Lego piece in your bare feet, getting a splinter. You did not worry about those because they were unexpected, and you did not have time or opportunity to fear them. If you focus on them now in your thoughts, instead of the injection, it gives you a mental distraction that puts any discomfort in perspective and affects you less.

7.     Use a good topical numbing cream
Using a cream that numbs your skin can make the process easier for you, and your clinician. Your skin is more relaxed and available for her work. People who have used these creams before their treatments will likely tell you that the creams really work to make the experience pleasant.

8.     Use a face massager before your treatment
Massagers have a reputation of being “amped-up face rollers.” They can be very beneficial to your skin in general, but also excellent to prepare it for injections. The vibrating waves of the massager penetrate deep and de-puff where needed and plump your skin in others. They smooth your skin for an anti-aging effect.  It is thought that they may increase your production of collagen. The tool increases circulation and prepares your skin so that it will allow better penetration of the product delivered in your facial injection. The massaging produces a host of other benefits as well. It improves the delivery of oxygen and nutrients. It also improves lymphatic drainage.

Sculpt Spa Las Vegas is proud to offer a pampering and profoundly superior experience for our clients who want the benefits of facial injections. It is important that we alleviate as much anxiety as possible from those who are thrilled about the prospective benefits that we can bring, but who also harbor a fear of injections.

These tools are important resources for those who are not so anxious that they avoid the procedures all together, but also for those who have some nervousness as they experience the process. The administration of the facial injections is actually as much art as it is science.

Our team at Sculpt Spa has won accolades for their artistry in bringing beauty and enhancement to our clients’ faces. In order to do that the most effectively, it is helpful for the patient to be as calm and comfortable as possible!
