It would be an understatement to say there are literally hundreds of thousands of American businesses that provide Botox and dermal fillers. The meteoric rise of fillers and cosmetic injections has steadily been rising for the past few decades. And if you are new to getting fillers or Botox you might wonder, does it really matter where you go? The answer is a definitive yes. Beyond simply getting better results, going to the wrong practice can be a major safety concern.
Why Experience Matters When Dealing With Botox
There are a variety of professions and industries where experience really matters. Any profession directly linked to your safety should make you consider the experience and credentials of the person providing the services. This includes anything medical. Going to an inexperienced Botox practitioner isn’t just risking bad results, it is also risking potential dangers. Allergan, the company behind Botox and many dermal fillers, requires that aesthetic practices that carry their product undergo training. So you should always check that the practice you are going to has received that training. Oftentimes, businesses that market “cheap” Botox or fillers are businesses that are not actually licensed or have staff members who weren’t properly trained.
Finding The Right Aesthetic Practice In Your Area
Even among licensed and trained professionals, your results are still going to vary depending on where you go. This is true for a variety of reasons. Here are a few tips on finding the right practice.
- Check their Work: Before going to a new practice, take a look at their website’s gallery, their social media, and anywhere else they are displaying their results. This should give you a good idea of some of the results they have achieved.
- Check their Reviews: Additionally you should check review sites and other websites that provide review features like Google or Facebook. This is a great way to get a better understanding of what actual clients are saying about this practice. Of course, every business in the world likely has a few unfair negative reviews (there are sushi restaurants with 1-star reviews because they didn’t serve hamburgers) so take things with a grain of salt. When you look at reviews you are looking for a general trend. What is the average rating, and what are people actually saying.
- What Else Do They Do: As mentioned above a lot of practices don’t specialize in Botox & Fillers. You will often notice see a local dentist or day spa that decided to add Botox or CoolSculpting or some other aesthetic service. If aesthetic services aren’t their main services, it probably isn’t what they stake their reputation on. True aesthetic practices offer a variety of services that achieve similar results, consistently attend training for new techniques, and are on top of all the new procedures on the market. That level of dedication means you are going to get treatments tailored to your needs.
