Expert Tips to Help You Pick a Qualified Cosmetic Injector

Looking for a skilled, experienced injector? You’re not alone. As injectables like Botox, lip injections, cheek fillers, and more have become increasingly popular, the number of underqualified providers has increased as well. Looking at a few before and after photos on social media is not an adequate measure of someone’s skill level nor is it a good predictor of the outcome that they’ll be able to achieve with your injectables. Stick with us as we discuss a few key indicators that you’ll be able to look for when seeking a good injector that you can trust.

Look for a “No”

As much as we love a service provider that can achieve exactly what we ask for, it is important to remember that as the client we are not always aware of whether or not what we’re asking for aligns with what is possible for our facial structure and anatomy. 

It is a huge green flag when an injector is honest with you about the success you will see from the treatment you are asking for. Good injectors aren’t afraid to say “no” or “not yet.” Sometimes an outcome can be achieved over time instead of right away, and sometimes, a different approach is proposed that will work with your bone structure and features for results you’ll love just as much. Additionally, a good injector will tell you when you’ve done enough. Maintenance is important but doesn’t need to always make results “bigger and better” and a good injector knows this and will communicate it. 

Anatomy Education

Speaking of anatomy, don’t be afraid to ask your injector questions about their background, education, and experience. Despite how common injectable services have become, it is important to remember that you’re working in areas that have vital functions near important areas of your body and safety should be of primary importance. If they haven’t taken an anatomy class or don’t possess a good working knowledge of anatomy, it should be an immediate no. Having a deep understanding of facial anatomy is key for safety and lowering the risk of complications. It is also important assurance that your injector will be able to give you results that enhance your facial structure without looking unnatural and overdone. Approaches like Full Facial Balancing, which we use here at Coco Med Spa in St. Pete, are often suggested by highly skilled injectors because they know that making major adjustments to only one area of the face can cause disharmony in the features and change someone's appearance too much. 

Ultimately, the more you know about your injector, the more information you’ll have to make the best and most informed decision for your injection experience. If you’re ready to take the leap, we’d love to show you why our award-winning injectors at Coco Med Spa are so good at what they do. Their knowledge, expertise, and customer service are the gold standard in St. Petersburg and the industry as a whole. Book with us today, we’d love to have you!
