“I Loved the Results So Much, I’ve Been Doing It Ever Since:” 5 Women Share Their First Times With Injectables

LA Women Share What their First Time Injectables Appointment Was Like

The first time doing anything can be a little nerve-wracking, and that’s particularly true when considering booking an injectables consultation. Even if your friends have been getting treated with injectable wrinkle reducers and fillers for years, and you feel ready to try them for yourself, it’s still uncharted territory. 

When we’re uncertain about trying something, we like to read first-hand experiences from others who have gone through with it, and that holds true with injectables appointments, too. So, we asked a handful of California-based women — including a total needle-phobe and a bride-to-be — to share exactly what their first times with these treatments were like. Keep reading to discover their interesting stories — and don’t be surprised if you end up inspired to test them out yourself!

Editor's Note

Injectable wrinkle reducers temporarily smooth the look of moderate to severe wrinkles in certain areas of the face, including the forehead, frown lines, and crow’s feet; they should not be used more frequently than every three months. Injectable filler is a temporary treatment that adds volume to areas of the face such as the lips, cheeks, and laugh lines. Like any medical treatment, both injectable wrinkle reducers and injectable fillers have potential risks and side effects. Talk to a licensed provider to see if they’re right for you.
