Jim Brantner, MD Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery in Johnson City, TN has added three new injectables to the services we offer: the FDA-approved Juvederm products vobella, voluma, and vollure! To celebrate, let’s clear up some of the misconceptions about injectablessyringe

Myth: injections look fake.

There’s a common misconception that these products will make patients look like they’ve “had work done,” but here’s the truth: only bad or excessive treatments will look that way. Well-done treatments from a qualified, professional provider like Dr. Brantner will rejuvenate your appearance, not make you look like a different person.

Myth: what works for someone else will work for you.

While results typically last a specific duration, there’s no guaranteed amount of time that each injectable product will continue to be effective. Each face is different, after all! Pay attention to your treatment areas and speak with your provider to discuss the timeline of when you should consider refreshing your treatments.

Myth: cheaper is better.

Just like in everything, you get what you pay for. Do you really want to trust your appearance and health to discount providers who may not even be using the FDA-approved injectables?

And now, a fact for you: these products are safe. Each one has been approved by the FDA, which is not something you can say about the vitamins and teas you’ll find at a health food store. When you’re ready to schedule a consultation, call the offices of Jim Brantner, MD for quality, professional, Board Certified cosmetic surgery and outpatient services.
