What Should You Expect During Your First Cosmetic Injection Appointment?


Dr. Aimee Nguyen and Dr. Robert Najera have helped countless patients refresh their appearance with cosmetic injections. Products like BOTOX® and dermal fillers are minimally invasive and can reduce fine lines and wrinkles, restore lost volume, and enhance facial features.

If you're considering cosmetic injections for the first time, it's normal to feel a little nervous or unsure about what to expect. In this guide, we'll walk you through a typical appointment so you can feel more prepared. Call Atomic Beauty today and book your first session in Frisco, TX. Clients love their results.

Preparing for your appointment

There are a few ways to prepare for cosmetic injections to ensure a seamless and comfortable experience:

  • Understand your goals: Do you want to smooth out forehead wrinkles? Plump up your cheeks? Enhance your lips? Knowing what you want to achieve can help us recommend a personalized treatment plan.
  • Avoid blood-thinning medications: Some prescription and over-the-counter drugs increase your risk of bleeding and bruising. If possible, avoid these medications for a few days before treatment, unless instructed by your doctor.
  • Plan ahead: Plan your appointment at least two weeks before any special events or important occasions. This allows for potential side effects to subside and for the full results to show.

The consultation

During a consultation, you'll have the opportunity to discuss your cosmetic goals with our providers. We will evaluate your facial features and explain the different products available.

For example, wrinkle relaxers like BOTOX reduce fine lines and wrinkles, particularly in the forehead, eyebrows, and around the eyes. Dermal fillers, on the other hand, are injected into places where volume has been lost due to aging or weight loss. Fillers improve areas like the cheeks, lips, and jawline.

At Atomic Beauty, we take the time to understand your needs and recommend the best possible treatments for your specific issues. We also want you to feel comfortable, so feel free to ask questions or express concerns during the consultation.

The injection process

Before the cosmetic injections are administered, a member of our team will clean the targeted areas and apply a numbing cream if desired. We then use a very fine needle to administer the chosen treatments. You may feel a slight pinch or pressure, but most people report minimal discomfort. The process takes less than an hour, so you can easily fit it into your busy schedule.

Aftercare and results

Dr. Nguyen and Dr. Najera provide all patients with detailed aftercare instructions so they know how to care for their skin at home. Some general tips include avoiding strenuous exercise, excessive sun exposure, or wearing heavy makeup for the first 24 hours. You may experience mild swelling or redness, but these effects should subside within a week. Results can be seen in the following days and weeks.
