What to Expect from your Nurse Injector

What makes a good nurse injector? A good nurse injector is someone with a solid understanding of facial anatomy; a good sense of aesthetics; someone who puts safety first; and of course, the more experience the better.

The most important consideration for any Botox or Filler treatment is not the cost but the expertise of the nurse doing the injection. At SWL, we pride ourselves on the extensive experience and skill set possessed by all of our Nurse Injectors. Collectively, they have invaluable years of experience dedicated to non-surgical aesthetics. Each of our Injectors spent years working collaboratively with industry leaders and educators to remain current in cutting edge techniques.

Here are some things you should expect from your Nurse Injector:

  • Your nurse injector will review your health history: including any surgical procedures that have been performed, any allergies, medications, herbs, supplements, or over the counter medications you may be taking.
  • Your nurse injector will evaluate your face, your facial movement, and strength of your facial muscles.
  • Your nurse injector will explain to you how the Botox or Filler will work, what you can expect, and when you can expect to see results.
  • Your nurse injector will take photos for your confidential chart so that you can see the before and after images.
  • Your nurse injector will thoroughly cleanse your face with alcohol prior to any treatment.
  • Your nurse injector will review your post procedure instructions with you and schedule a follow up appointment if needed.

At Southwest our nurses strive to exceed your expectations as they focus on sophisticated procedures that help accentuate your natural beauty, conceal any imperfections, and restore youthfulness.




Is Juvederm Voluma an alternative to other volumizing fillers?





Cosmetic fillers are one of the most commonly used procedures to eliminate visible signs of aging with immediate results.  We are fortunate that there are now so many great injectable options to chose from!  Given the vast array of filler products currently available, the decision of which facial filler to use can be confusing.

Newly released JUVEDERM VOLUMA®  is an excellent alternative for those who are looking for a subtle, natural lift to the central cheek and cheekbone area.  In fact, it is the first and only FDA-approved filler to instantly add volume to the midface!  Compared to other volumizing fillers, the unique cross-linking of Juvederm VOLUMA® causes it to be a thicker, plumper gel than other hyaluronic acid fillers.  This allows for more of a lifting effect, making it ideal for adding fullness to the mid-face, and regaining the youthful curve to the cheeks that enhances the overall shape of the face.

Additionally, Juvederm VOLUMA®  is unique because it is less hydrophilic than other  JUVÉDERM® products.  This means it pulls less water to itself after injection. What does this mean for you? Less swelling!  Another advantage of Juvederm VOLUMA®  is that it comes with lidocaine anesthetic already in it! This helps numb the treatment area, improving patient comfort.

For most patients, Juvederm VOLUMA®  has been shown to last up to two years, although in some cases and areas, the duration of the effect may be shorter or longer. Supplemental treatments may be required to achieve and maintain optimal results. Juvederm VOLUMA®  will often be combined with other fillers, like JUVÉDERM® for the nasal labial folds or Restylane® for the tear troughs and lips.
