Why Choose a Dermatologist for Your Facial Anti-Aging Injections?

Atlanta Skin Care Services

More and more aging adults are taking advantage of facial injectable treatments to turn back the hands of time. This includes popular products such as Juvederm, Botox, Restylane and others. Depending on the product, patients can address wrinkles, fine lines, thin lips, hallowed cheeks and other unwanted signs of aging in the face. The rise in facial fillers and anti-aging injections is supported by the fact that they are minimally-invasive, affordable and offer little to no social downtime.

Risks of a Choosing a Non-Physician

Due to the increased demand for facial injection treatments, there are now countless non-physicians and non-qualified medical professionals offering these procedures. In fact, you don’t have to look hard to find someone who offers fillers or Botox. Adults may be tempted to get Botox at the local mall kiosk, their dentist, a friend’s home or anyone else who is offering the treatment at a more convenient location. Cost may also play a factor, as many non-physicians offer their injectable services at a lower price than a qualified provider.

However, patients should understand the serious risks involved. Choosing an individual who is not properly trained or who doesn’t have a keen understanding of facial anatomy may result in poor placement of the injections and several complications, including:

  • Ineffective results
  • Facial paralysis
  • Eyelid Droop
  • Intra-arterial injections causing ulcers, stroke, blindness

Why A Dermatologist is Best

If you want to ensure your facial rejuvenation treatment is in the best hands, go to a board certified dermatologist. These are the medical professionals that have actually paved the way for facial injection treatments. In fact, a recent study titled “Who are the Pioneers? A Critical Analysis of Innovation and Expertise in Cutaneous Non-Invasive Procedures” by Omar A. Ibrahimi, MD, PhD, reviewed all published research to make the claim that dermatologists were the leading innovators for facial injectables. A dermatologist understands the skin as an organ, including how the tissues and nerves react to outside stimuli. You can trust that a dermatologist takes extra measures for precise placement and is also equipped to readily handle any complication that could occur.

Remember that each person has a unique skin type and brings specific age-related skin concerns. When it comes to your face, trust your treatments to someone who carries the appropriate qualifications. At Olansky Dermatology Associates, we offer a full menu of non-surgical treatments for the face, including anti-aging fillers and neuromodulators (wrinkle relaxers).

The doctors and PA’s are great and very knowledgeable. I never have to wait to long and the office staff is always very nice. I also take my son there and they are great with him as well. I would highly recommend Olansky Dermatology.

Kristen R.

Olansky Dermatology is wonderful! Our whole family goes. My daughter has had terrible eczema through the years and both my kids had mollescum too. They always make things better and spend time explaining whats wrong and how to fix it.

I recently had a couple appointments at Olanksy Dermatology and was seen by Julia Lee. Julie was excellent and quickly took care of the issue I was having with my skin. I would highly recommend Olansky Dermatology and especially Julia Lee to anyone in need of a dermatologist.

I was actually running a bit late, but they were very friendly and knowledgeable about what was going on with my skin. And also very timely.I will definitely stick with them!

Khol S.

Very professional and pleasant staff. When I arrived at my appointment this afternoon I was informed that my doctor called out sick and they tried calling to let me know but I just recently changed my number so they were unable to reach me. The receptionist was so sweet and helpful. Instead of leaving and making a new appointment they fit me in without an issue and without any waiting.

Susan H.

Dr. Ilyas was highly recommended to me so I decided to change dermatologists. I am so glad as I am pleased with his expertise and his highly professional manner. I am also delighted with Emily Raville, Aesthetician. She does a wonderful job and I am recommending her to my friends as well. I am completely satisfied – can’t get any better than that!

Lindsay S.

I have been going to Olansky Dematology for many years now, whether for a specific problem, or just for a really great deep facial, and I wouldn’t consider going anywhere else. Every single staff member is knowledgeable and professional. The customer service I receive every visit leaves a positive and lasting impression. I always feel comfortable and at ease while I am there. Great staff!

Janet R.

I seem to live at this place! Whether it’s for an appointment with a doctor or for an aesthetic treatment, I am there frequently. I cannot say enough good things. Efficient, friendly, the best doctors, and a new aesthetic center with the latest in procedures and products to keep us looking almost as young as we feel. It’s always fun to see Emily and she knows just what to recommend.
