5 Things You Shouldn’t Ignore When Going in For Botox
When I was in my 20’s, I never thought I would ever get botox. I thought it was silly and most women that got it, really didn’t need it. Then I entered my thirties, and I saw what those women were talking about it. The fine lines became more present and I started to learn a little bit more about botox. One of the most important things I learned was that it helped as a preventive to keep your lines from deepening. That is what caught my interest. I wanted to learn more about the process and thought I would share these five tips when looking to get botox.
Women have been looking for the fountain of youth for ages, and it seems like we have finally found it with BOTOX® Cosmetic. It is becoming one of the most mainstream cosmetic treatments here in Florida. More and more women are rushing to make appointments at a local provider, but unfortunately sometimes are not getting the results they hoped for. This can be due to the chosen treatment center, not necessarily the injectable itself. Here are 5 ways to make sure your BOTOX provider is safe and qualified.
- Clean office: It should be a major red flag if you walk into a space that should be clean and sterile, and it is visibly dirty. This is both unprofessional and unsafe. If you see old needles or other used materials lying around, this is not a good sign. Not only should the procedure area be well lit and clean, but the waiting room should be tidy as well. Procedure chairs should have protective covering on them and all tools and materials should be sterile.
- Licensed injector: You should not be embarrassed or shy when asking for credentials. Getting BOTOX from a licensed injector is an ABSOLUTE must. If your injector doesn’t have the proper training and experience, it can not only result in undesirable outcomes, but also dangerous complications.
- Median prices: This one’s important. I know bargain prices can be tempting, but they can also be a tell-tale sign that there is something wrong with the provider. Exceptionally low prices can often mean that the product is not legitimate. It can also mean that the injector is not qualified. On the other hand, significantly higher prices do not necessarily mean higher quality product or service. It’s best to stick with providers that are close in price to other providers in your area.
- Injector interested in your concerns: Your injector should not try to coerce you into any treatment. He or she should listen to your aesthetic goals and answer any questions you may have. Do not let anyone push you into a treatment plan that you are not comfortable with.
- Injector willing to discuss details about the treatment: Your injector should be completely transparent about the procedure. He or she should be up front about the benefits and possible risks. Your injector should be able to explain how BOTOX works and give you all the necessary information about side effects and post-treatment care. If he or she cannot provide you with these details, you should take your business elsewhere.
Though BOTOX may seem like a minor procedure, it is important to find a skilled provider. This will ensure the best results possible. Facial treatments are not a place to cut corners, so doing your research on experienced providers should be a top priority when deciding to get BOTOX.
