Do You Really Know Who is Injecting Your Botox?
While Botox injections can be a very safe cosmetic treatment, its security truly hinges on the person administering the treatment. Just as a truck is built to protect its passengers, the vehicle is ultimately at the mercy of the driver. Common cosmetic injections such as Botox should be safe for every patient.
To ensure the best results, it’s important to know who is injecting your Botox. When considering options for Botox injections, first consider:
Because a Botox injection is a medical procedure, a medical professional must preform the treatment. Generally, physicians and sometimes those under the supervision of a physician can inject Botox. In the state of Florida, a doctor, or a physician’s assistant or nurse practitioner under the direct supervision of a doctor are the only professionals qualified to prescribe Botox.
The safest place to receive Botox injections is always at a doctor’s office. It’s important to keep in mind that the level of safety, regulation and quality of treatment can be severely compromised when Botox is offered at non-medical location like a mall or salon.
A board certified physician is among the most qualified to treat patients for Botox injections. Be sure to look for a physician who discloses which substance they are injecting, who discusses the risks and benefits of the treatment and who does not pressure you into purchasing treatments you don’t want or need.
