The global attempt to slow down the aging process is as strong as ever. Granted, none of us has control over how old we are, but it’s nice that we can still maintain a youthful appearance and eliminate all those wrinkles and fine lines that seemingly multiply by the day. Botox and injectables are a popular treatment option, and they really do work. But many of you may be asking, “how do I know if my Botox injector is credible?”
As popular as these wrinkle-erasing dermal fillers are, many men and women just like you are apprehensive because the success of these products hinges on who is doing your Botox injection and if they are credible.
Simply put, too much can go wrong, leading to horror stories such as:
- Frozen faces
- Droopy eyebrows
- Fake look
- Hooded eyes
At Live Young Wellness Spa in Flower Mound, our skin care specialists are as credible as it gets. Not only are we certified to do Botox injections, but we will assess the patterns of your facial creases and develop an injection plan specific to you. We make every attempt to give you the confidence necessary to use Botox.
Still don’t believe us? Below are three ways to know your Botox injector is credible like they say they are.
They have the right qualifications
One way to know if your Botox injector is credible is if they are a board-certified plastic surgeon or a Nurse Practitioner. Ask this question because, in the med spa world, any physician (regardless of specialty) can step in as a med spa medical director. We don’t know about you, but while we may rely on them to treat elevated blood pressure, mend a broken arm, or save a life, they aren’t the first people we’d ask to inject Botox. Plastic surgeons and NP-Cs are required to stay up to date on all the latest treatments and procedures, understand the anatomy of both surgery and the aging process, identify risk factors for each patient, and have the right team around them at all times.
At LYWS, we have a plastic surgeon, Dr. Drew Sanderson. We also have our NP-C, Ashley. The staff meets every other week to discuss ways to improve, and we also hold weekly meetings for continuing education.
They really know Botox and injectables
When Botox is injected into the forehead, around the eyes, or other areas for cosmetic use, the result should be a reduction in the appearance of wrinkles and other fine lines. This gives us the youthful appearance we all want. But there’s so much more to it. Your doctor should be able to give you very specific answers about the injectable they are using, such as what the product can or can’t do, any potential side effects, etc. If they “hem and haw” over their answers or don’t answer at all, you should think twice before letting them perform any procedure.
They know how to set expectations
If you want to know exactly how your Botox procedure will go, your injector should be able to provide step-by-step details on both the procedure itself and what to expect afterward. This includes explaining what will happen during your injections, how much they plan on using, how the application of the Botox injection will feel, side effects, complications, how everything should look when the procedure is over, and how long the results will last.
