Why Credentials Matter for Botox Injections

Confirming that your doctor is qualified to administer facial injections, such as Botox®, is critical to the outcome of the treatment. Many doctors are novices when it comes to injections. Dr. Salzman has over 15 years of experience with cosmetic injectables. He is also a member of Allergan’s Botox® Cosmetic Physicians Network, and trains other physicians the proper way to perform the Botox® treatment.

However, many patients that have unqualified providers leave their treatment appointments unhappy with undesired results. Understanding the qualifications of your Botox® injector significantly affects your anticipated outcome.

The biggest issue most patients run across is that their doctor is not educated to oversee filler treatments. If an unqualified injector performs the treatment, patients may see drooping in the eyebrows, sagging or lazy eyelids, called ptosis. These results often produce self-conscious and unsatisfied patients.

However, if you are seeking Botox® injections from a member of American Society of Plastic Surgeons, you can be confident that they underwent extensive and detailed training on how to administer facial injections. Board-certified plastic surgeons, oculoplastic surgeons, and dermatologists are included in this category.

Although the wrong doctor can cause unwanted outcomes from poor Botox injections, the majority of people who receive Botox on a regular basis are very happy with their results. It is important that before patients undergo this treatment, they seek a board-certified and properly trained professional to administer the prescription medicine.
