Why Choosing a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon for Injectables is Your Best Bet

It’s a pretty safe bet to say that BOTOX® is a household name. Nearly 11 million treatments and counting have been performed in this country, making it the single most popular injectable in the U.S. Odds are, if you haven’t yet gotten Dysport® or BOTOX injections yourself, you know someone who has.

With such widespread popularity, one may easily get the impression that injectables like these are no big deal—one provider is as good as the next, right? Wrong! Treatments may only take 15 minutes of your time, but all injectables are medical procedures that require a provider with considerable skill, a well-developed eye for symmetry and proportion, and a thorough knowledge of facial anatomy to ensure safe injections and a beautiful outcome.

Your appearance is worth investing in a plastic surgeon’s skill and precision. To ensure your safety and beautiful, natural results with Dysport or BOTOX, get your injections from a board certified plastic surgeon.

Who should perform BOTOX injections?

In Georgia, any licensed physician, physician assistant, or registered nurse working under MD supervision can legally perform injections of Dysport, BOTOX, or dermal fillers. This includes plastic surgeons and RNs working under their supervision. It also includes dentists, gynecologists, and other providers who do not specialize in aesthetic treatments and may have only undergone a weekend training course in administering injections.

Injectable treatments require a very different skillset than other types of injections, such as a flu vaccine. Because Dysport and BOTOX work by blocking nerve impulses to specific muscle fibers, your provider needs to know which of 43 facial muscles to inject, the exact point and depth in the muscle to place the needle, and how much to inject to achieve a great result. There’s very little room for error. Too much Dysport or BOTOX can result in the dreaded “frozen face.” Too little and your results will be underwhelming. Injected too deeply, too close to the surface, or in the wrong area, and there is a risk of drooping eyelids, facial asymmetry, or other problems.

Don’t take a gamble on your face. Choose a board certified plastic surgeon for Injectables.

The best way to ensure you receive the utmost in safety and get the beautiful, natural results you deserve? Get Dysport or BOTOX injections from a board certified plastic surgeon.

Plastic surgeons who are certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery have undergone the highest level of aesthetic surgery training—at least six years of surgical residency training with a minimum of two ull years in plastic surgery—and have passed rigorous tests proving their surgical skill and knowledge of anatomy.

Of all providers, board certified plastic surgeons are among the best-equipped to achieve beautiful BOTOX results. They spend their careers helping patients of all ages, shapes, and sizes improve their appearance. Having trained in facial surgery, plastic surgeons have an intimate knowledge of facial anatomy, including the important ability to visualize internal structures of the face and administer injectables in precisely the right location and amount for an individual’s needs. While certain other providers may be able to achieve good results, isn’t your appearance worth investing in a plastic surgeon’s skill and precision?

Additionally, since authentic, FDA-approved BOTOX Cosmetic is only available through a licensed physician, choosing a board certified board certified plastic surgeon for BOTOX gives you the peace of mind of knowing you’re getting the real deal. Unfortunately, fake “bargain botox” products make their way onto the market and into the hands off unscrupulous, usually unqualified providers—another reason to skip the spa or “botox party.”
