Is It Time For An Intervention?

Is It Time For An Intervention?

As medical spa owners and experts in aesthetic medicine, we have a deep understanding and appreciation for just how much injections of neuromodulators and dermal fillers have changed how we age. At no time in history have we had more autonomy and control over our beauty destiny. 

Delivering near-immediate results, neuromodulators and dermal fillers replace volume in lips, cheeks, and the hallows near the temples. They smooth facial lines that are etched between the brows (known as ‘elevens’), along the forehead, and around the nasolabial folds, mouth and jawline (often referred to as marionette lines). 

Proven safe and effective, injections have a downside: downtime. Post-procedure, most people experience unwanted side effects like redness, swelling, bruising and discomfort. It can take days, even weeks, to fully recover. 

This is the #1 deterrent for people who are considering injections and fillers. And we completely understand why. The ‘work hard, play hard’ hustle is real. Between our careers and commitments, social time and screen time, there’s simply no time for downtime. This is the real world, and we deserve a real solution.

The real world hustle and real life struggle to stay on top of everything all the time is what inspired us to create Viktor Michael. Our aim is to intervene the injection cycle with safe, effective formulas that change the course of your recovery. Instead of waiting days and weeks to feel back to normal, Viktor Michael provides an infusion of active ingredients that have been proven to reduce bruising, swelling, redness, irritation, and speed up the healing process.

So how do you know if you’re a candidate for an Injection Intervention? Here’s a quick checklist: 

  1. You are very curious about neuromodulators and fillers, but nervous that people will know you’ve had “work done.” While we can’t control what happens in your treatment room, we recommend telling your injector to be conservative with the first treatment so you can test the waters and see how you like the results. You can always go back for more if you want a more dramatic change. And by following the Viktor Michael protocol, you can be rest assured that the telltale signs of “work” - bruising, swelling and redness - will be a non-issue. 
  2. You’re very interested in injections but you cannot handle pain! We hear you! We don’t love the pinch and prick of the needles either, and when we use Hidden Agenda the days and hours before the treatment, we hardly feel them. The actives in our formulas act as an analgesic, reducing the pain response in our skin. The experience of injections becomes much more comfortable with this support. 
  3. You get injections but you dread them! You have to schedule them when you know you’re not going to be busy (and when are you ever not busy?) and you know you’ll be hiding out for the next week to 10 days. You don’t have time for downtime, and neither do we. This is the #1 reason we created Viktor Michael, and we can assure you, you’ll be back to normal in half the time. 

Don’t take our word for it. Hear what real Viktor Michael users are saying about their skin after testing our Hidden Agenda serum and Ciao For Now mask in a clinical study.

I bruise quite a lot. I was amazed at the benefits that I saw. There were no issues with any bruising or redness where she did the injections. I would 100% recommend these products to use before and after having injections.
