How To Spot A Good Aesthetic Injector

Choosing a reliable and trustworthy aesthetic injector and clinic can be a daunting process. We’ve come up with 7 top tips to ensure you choose the right practitioner.

If you have decided to get an injectable treatment, the most important selection you will make in the treatment process is that of your injector. With a rise in beauty salons offering aesthetic injectable treatments, we want to ensure that you know exactly what to look for in a clinic & aesthetic injector.

Here’s some good ways to spot a trustworthy injector:

  • Ensure your injector has a relevant medical qualification such as a NMC, GDC or GMC license number

You can actually search for this online by their last name to see if they are medically qualified. This is really important as although, when done properly, cosmetic injections are very safe, if something were to go wrong, medical professionals have the appropriate training to deal with any eventuality, whereas beauty therapists do not.

  • Ask the injector to see what products they are using and ask them to explain why they use these certain products

You can always search online to see if the drug/product is FDA approved. We at VIVA Skin Clinics we use the Juvéderm® Vycross range.

Juvéderm® is a range of dermal fillers offered by leading aesthetics manufacturer, Allergan and is approved by the FDA.

  • Look at the injectors price 

If they are extremely cheap, there is probably a reason, being the products aren’t legitimate and could lead to complications.

  • Make sure you are offered a consultation to ensure the treatment is right for you

At VIVA, every new patient is given a full-face consultation as we think this is a very important part of treatment. You and your practitioner will discuss your medical history as well as your own motivations behind booking the treatment – these are necessary before we proceed.

Your practitioner will then formulate a treatment plan for your next 3 sessions based on the treatments that will achieve your desired outcome. We take a holistic full-face approach to treatment so each and every patient will receive expert recommendations that cover dermal fillers, anti-wrinkle injections and medical-grade skincare.

  • Look at the injector’s before & after results on their website or social media

If there aren’t any, there is probably a reason why! We at VIVA are always posting regular treatment images on our Instagram page.

  • Ask the injector if they have insurance

If they have insurance, this means they have the relevant qualifications to gain it, therefore this ensures they are legitimately trained.

  •  Look at their Ggoogle reviews to see what the feedback is from other patients.

If the reviews look concerning, we recommend avoiding this clinic!
