Botox was first used in cosmetic treatment to treat frown lines between eyebrows, but since then it has evolved to treat and correct many more conditions other than just frown lines. With more and more people becoming conscious of their body and health conditions the surge in the demand of Botox treatment has been phenomenal. But do we have a steady supply of good doctors with the right credentials who can actually do justice to the treatment?
What the does the treatment consist of?
The treatment involves injecting small, diluted amounts of Botox to certain facial muscles in a way to soften lines that have been caused due to excessive muscle action. Frowns and laugh lines are good examples of the same. What is really important here is to understand that the amount of Botox to be injected and the location should be monitored very carefully. Botox in high doses can be fatal, if the dose is too small it might not work properly, and if it is not injected in the specified area the results can be disastrous. Here comes the need for a doctor with the right credentials who knows how to carry out the treatment effectively and efficiently. Plastic surgeons, occuloplastic surgeons, and dermatologists who have been properly trained and are board-certified are the best people to go to for a Botox treatment.
Are medical spas good for Botox treatments?
Medical spas like the Rejuvenate Medical Spa offer Botox treatments among their other boutique services. Special treatments like fractional laser skin surfacing, permanent makeup, acne treatments are offered in most of the med spas. With anti-aging treatments on a rise, Botox is sought after by both men and women of all ages, and is a highly-demanded treatment method. Medical spas which are monitored by accredited doctors give one the feeling of getting rejuvenated rather than getting something treated.
How does an accredited doctor do the job better?
A doctor who has undergone training of how to administer Botox does not only know how to carry out the treatment but also has knowledge of the action of the treatment. Doctors with credentials study the health history of the concerned patients and take into account the side-effects that can occur post- treatment. It is important to have a good idea of the patient’s medical history as different people react differently to the same treatment. A novice specialist might carry out the procedure without a hitch but might not be well-prepared to deal with the repercussions. Botox, though not a surgical process, requires a good amount of training and knowledge of the process and the procedure.
How to choose the right doctor for Botox treatments?
One can be assured that the doctors who are members of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) have detailed knowledge about facial anatomy. They make more informed decisions regarding aesthetic plastic surgery and their follow-up routine and medication. ASAPS members also make sure that they administer safe and high-quality procedures to the patients thus giving them more natural-looking results. ASAPS is made up of nearly 2600 plastic surgeons, one of whom is Dr. Bijan Farah who is the Medical Director of Rejuvenate Medical Spa.
