How Do I Find Someone to Inject Botox or Dermal Fillers?
With the growing popularity of injectables, many medical professionals have jumped on the bandwagon. There are three key factors in choosing an injector: first, what is the experience, training, and talent of the individual? Next, is there an on-site medical doctor? And finally, what is the price?
Before your appointment, do your homework about the facility and the individual. Do they offer a free consultation? How long has the person been injecting, what is their medical or aesthetic training? Do they seek out advanced training? What other services do they provide (how much time is spent injecting)? The answers will help to gauge their proficiency in the art of injecting and ensure you get the results you want.
If a physician is not doing the injections, ensure the individual is an R.N. working under the direct supervision of an on-site M.D. As more non-aesthetic/dermatologist facilities offer injectables, there has been a rise in serious complications. You want to choose someone with the proper medical training and experience to deal with the rare but real risks of complications.
Price is often a driver for selecting a provider but should only be a part of your decision. Price is a combination of the cost of the product plus the experience and skill of the injector. An extremely low price should be a red flag of either counterfeit or low-quality products or a newbie to the field that is trying to build a client base.
