Are multiple aesthetic brands available in aesthetic injections?

I receive multiple emails & direct messages from patients who are unhappy about the brand options offered/utilized by their injector.  Their chief complaint is that the physician or practitioner was brand specific and they did not receive the results they wanted.

First, let me address that as a practitioner, my belief is to collaborate with my patient. This is achieved by asking the patient their goals and setting a realistic expectation. Secondly, there are many products/brands available on the market today and they may not all be suited for the area in which you would like to see improvement. Products have guidelines developed by the FDA with regulations that specify where the product is approved for use.

My suggestion is as a consumer do your homework on the desired area of the face and the products available for the specific area.  Also do your homework on the injector. A well trained qualified injector should be trained in multiple brands and injection areas. I encourage my patients to set up a consultation and interview me. I also encourage them to bring a list of questions because I want to build a relationship and hear what my patient desires as well as help them to achieve their goals. Teamwork will help you achieve your best you!
