  3. Know that injectables are not once and done.
    All injectables eventually wear off; depending on the type, they can last anywhere from 4 months to 2 years. It is important to plan ahead for another treatment to keep up your youthful appearance.
  4. Follow the doctor’s directions.
    Before and after your injectable procedure it is important to follow the instructions you are provided to ensure a smooth treatment. It is also beneficial to not plan any big events directly following the procedure; give yourself a week. There can be swelling or bruising even immediately following the procedure, so you may want to let the filler fully set in.
