We’ve all seen MAFS, Love is Blind and a plethora of other reality TV shows that lead you to believe that finding your soulmate is simple. Married at First Sight’s success rate of only seven couples out of eighty-two still together shows that jumping straight in might not be the best approach.

Finding an experienced and skilled injector is paramount when undergoing any cosmetic procedure. And we highly advise against committing too early. As a patient, you want to feel that you can trust their opinion, be confident in the outcome, and have an enjoyable experience in the clinic. Today, we are here to give you some tips and tricks to finding your perfect match.

Firstly, do not skip straight to marriage without the first date. Most clinics offer a complimentary consultation. At Absolute Cosmetic Medicine, we offer a free 30-minute no-obligation consultation. You can book in for as many of these as you like, and there is never any pressure to go ahead with treatment (or the second date if you will) if you are not feeling it. A consultation is a wonderful place to get to know your injector. It is imperative that you feel understood and comfortable while sharing your vulnerabilities and that you also respect their opinion. Ensure that you take the time to ask any questions that will help you build that foundation – about their experience, skillset and even their approach to injecting.

Like in any relationship – effective communication is vital. Once you have found an injector you love and gel with, have an open and honest conversation about your concerns. This is where your foundation of trust and respect comes into play. Your injector may present you with a solution that you weren’t expecting. For example, you begin by saying that you are unhappy with your mouth. You feel that the corners of your mouth are drooping and making you look sad. You came in expecting to have some dermal filler popped into your lips. However, your practitioner suggests that you begin with a mid-face filler that will give you some lift resulting in a more rejuvenated and youthful appearance. When you have the foundation of trust, you can respect their expert opinion, and trust them to achieve the best possible result. Remember, this is not blind trust. They earned it back on your first date.

Finally – Find someone who will go the distance. Relationships evolve with time. Ideally, you should find an injector who will be with you for the long run. Together, you can work to find the treatments that provide you with the results that you are after.
