How Plastic Surgeons are Approaching Injectables in a World that Calls for Masks

Lockdowns may be ending, but the pandemic is not. Until there’s a vaccine for the ever-illusive Covid-19, or the illness somehow dies off its own, there is always going to be a risk when it comes to removing the mask. However, the chance of exposure isn’t going to stop people from wanting to present the world with the best possible version of themselves— even if it’s only on a computer screen.

Since opening Desert Med Aesthetics, Dr. Doriana Cosgrove has dedicated her career to providing men and women with a safe, comprehensive, and personalized care plan in a warm and welcoming environment. Since the devastating Covid-19 outbreak, her dedication to the safety and well-being of her staff and patients is more important than ever. The question that still lingers is how are plastic surgeons approaching injectables that require the removal of your mask?

What Are Injectables?

Cosmetic injectables are gel-like substances that are injected beneath the skin to help restore lost volume, smooth and soften creases, or enhance facial contours. Injectables have become an increasingly popular cosmetic procedure due to its cost-effective way to look younger without surgery or downtime. At Desert Med Aesthetic, they offer a full menu of different injectable solutions for your cosmetic concerns:

Mask Removal Not Required

If fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes, forehead, hands, and neck are your primary concern, Dr. Cosgrove can access these areas of the face without you ever having to remove your mask. Dr. Cosgrove will administer the injectable directly into the target muscle with an ultrafine needle. While you may feel slight discomfort, most patients are not bothered by it. Before you know it, you’ll be free to return to your Zoom meetings with confidence.

A Fast, Minimally Invasive Procedure

When treating areas that do require the removal of your mask, such as your mouth, nose, and chin, Dr. Cosgrove will keep her mask on to limit contact. The wonderful thing about injectables is that they are a fast and minimally invasive procedure, meaning they take no more than 30 minutes from a patient’s busy schedule and require no unnecessary downtime.

Now Offering Telemedicine

To help eliminate crowded waiting rooms, limit seating due to social distancing, and prevent unnecessary physical contact, the staff at Desert Med Aesthetics are now offering telemedicine services from the comfort of your own home. With this new service, Dr. Cosgrove and her staff can have a one-on-one conversation with you about your cosmetic concerns, observe your facial movements, and conduct a personalized treatment plan with no risk to either of you.

With so many options available, our Indian Wells cosmetic specialists know that choosing the right dermal injection is often an overwhelming process. Dr. Cosgrove will help you explore all of your options to help you find the right solution for your cosmetic goals, and you can rest assured that your injections will be carried out with the highest standard of precision and artistry.
