Any cosmetic procedure, whether surgical or not, should be approached in a careful and meticulous manner. Here at our Los Angeles nonsurgical cosmetic practice, we always remind our patients that they will get the results they want if they do it for the right reasons at the right time and place.

Below is a list of four essential things that you need to consider in order to make a well-informed decision before having a Botox injection, laser vein treatment, or a chemical peel!

1. Allot a time for self-examination.

Think about the change that you want to see and your motives behind the changes. Ask yourself questions and be honest with yourself. In addition, spend a lot of time researching about the desired procedure. Lastly, keep your expectations as realistic as possible.

2. Find more than just a good surgeon/cosmetic specialist, rather, find the RIGHT cosmetic team that understands your concerns and knows your cosmetic goals.

Remember that when you’re in the right hands, the results of a cosmetic procedure may be very rewarding and may be a very satisfying experience. Also, keep in mind that a cosmetic practitioner may have all the impressive qualifications in the world but unless you’re comfortable with him or her during the consultation, take a step back and reconsider things.

3. Have a thorough consultation with your cosmetic practitioner.

Informative and thorough consultations with your surgeon or practitioner is important before finally making the decision to have the procedure. First of all, you need to disclose your desired outcomes and you should be prepared for the possibility that your doctor may discourage you from having a procedure and consider different treatments instead. After all, a good surgeon turns down a patient’s request for a procedure if he or she knows that it is not the best for you.

Furthermore, do not be shy in asking questions to clarify points that are not clear to you. In addition, be more precise with your statements to convey what it is that you really want to be changed.

4. Plan for your aftercare.

Your recovery is a crucial part of the success of your treatment. It is best for you to have the necessary recovery aids at hand. Also, stick to your surgeon’s instructions concerning follow-up visits.
