Aesthetic syringes are designed for people who want to inject their own filler and Botox treatments. They come in a variety of sizes, so it can be difficult to find the best one for your specific needs. However, when you use our guide below to help you choose which size is right for you, it will make the process much easier!
Your face is the single most important fixture of your body. It’s how we present ourselves to the world. And because our faces are so crucial to making a good impression, it only makes sense that we invest in our skin and strive to look as young and beautiful as possible.
Procedures such as facials, Botox, microdermabrasion, and blepharoplasty can help maintain your visage by getting rid of wrinkles, repairing acne scars, or even restoring vision. But all of these procedures come with an artificial way of gaining results: needles.
You may ask yourself why you need needles for facial rejuvenation. It is not uncommon for people to be afraid of needles; they can be intimidating and downright scary. But if you’ve ever watched TV, you know that shot recipients seem calm and relaxed, even making jokes during their injections.
How is this possible? This phenomenon can be boiled down to three words: numbing cream. Applying topical anesthetics prior to getting stuck with a needle makes the whole experience much less painful, sometimes eliminating it completely. Numbing cream can numb your skin ahead of time, so there is none of the biting pain associated with needling.
What Size of Aesthetic Syringe Do You Need?
Aesthetic syringes are available in a variety of sizes, such as 0.25ml and 0.5 ml options. However, many people do not know which size they need to buy. The following guide is designed to help you understand which size aesthetic syringe you should purchase.
0.2ml- People who have a small amount of filler or Botox injections will need a 0.2ml botox syringe for their treatment. This is the smallest gauge available, so it’s perfect for those who haven’t used a syringe before and are still getting used to the process.
It also works well for those who have not been receiving filler treatments as often as others, since it has enough fluid in it that can last multiple uses!
1ml- A 1ml botox syringe is appropriate for those who want more filler or Botox injections than a 0.2 ml syringe can offer them. If you typically receive 2 injections per treatment, then it’s best to purchase this size for your aesthetic needs.
5ml- A 5ml syringe is intended for those who need more filler or Botox than a 1ml can offer them. These will typically last individuals between 2 and 4 injections each time they use the product, depending on how much filler is needed for their specific cases.
10ml- If you frequently receive an excess of 3 injections every time you use the product, it’s probably best to buy a 10 ml syringe instead. This size has enough fluid in it that can last an individual roughly 6 injections before needing to be replaced again with fresh filling material!
2x Syringes- There are also 2x syringes available for individuals who want to receive an excess of filler or Botox injections. If you need more than a 10ml syringe will offer, then opt for one of these instead!
One last thing to remember is that aesthetic syringes can come in different gauges as well. For example, 0.2ml and 5ml syringes are available in 3mm and 4mm options. These sizes refer to the thickness of the needle itself and how deep it penetrates into the skin when used properly!
However, we do not recommend using a thicker gauge unless your dermatologist recommends it first. This is because they cause unnecessary pain and discomfort on top of being unsightly during injection/removal procedures!
The best way to figure out which size of syringe you need is to speak with your dermatologist first. They can help guide you on what size best suits your aesthetic needs, and even recommend the perfect gauge for your specific case! Remember that using too large of a gauge increases the risks of pain/discomfort during injection/removal processes while also increasing risk for awkward jaw movements or muscle twitching after use.
