Botox is one of the most common aesthetic procedures in the world. Today, more clinics in the United States offer Botox treatments than any other cosmetic procedure. While Botox lovers already have a favorite practitioner, it may be a confusing journey for those looking to start. 

To aid you with your research, we’ve compiled the best tips that will help you choose the best Botox practice for your next treatment! Here are the most important qualities to consider:

  • Reputation

While there are a lot of Botox practices out there, each with its reputation. Some have existed for many years but have unsatisfying treatment patterns, and others are short existing but satisfy their patients. 

The measure of a reputable Botox practice is not in how long it’s existed, but in the services it offers. Research online to see what other patients are saying about the services they received to determine whether you’ll want to visit the practice or seek other options.  

  • Certifications

Botox is a treatment procedure that should only licensed physicians should perform. Due to the simplistic nature of the treatment, you may come across uncertified professionals performing it. Although Botox is a safe and quick treatment, it’s paramount that a qualified professional carries it out. 

Remember, injections around the eyes and face are sensitive, and may cause complications. At a minimum, your practitioner should register with a relevant medical board dedicated to safe aesthetic medicine.This will give you the comfort of knowing they can handle your procedure successfully. 

  • Surgical Expertise

Certifications and expertise are two different things, two of which a Botox practice should have. A plastic surgeon is more familiar with the facial anatomy. They would know how to go about treating the most sensitive facial areas. For instance, they will quickly address crow’s feet versus a Botox non-surgical brow lift around the eyes. 

Carelessly injecting the upper eyelid could impact the incorrect muscle and drop the eyelid. Go for a plastic surgeon with thousands of hours of experience with Botox treatments, and consult board-certified professionals. 

  • Frequent Treatments

You’re unlikely to get the best treatment from a board-certified plastic surgeon who hasn’t performed Botox treatments in five years. Thus, the number of treatments performed equally matters. Practice makes perfect! You’ll know your plastic surgeon is the right one for the job when they have hours of experience injecting Botox and approaches the injection areas with precision. 

  • Cost 

When it comes to Botox, Groupon is not the answer! As someone once said, when the deal is too good, think twice! Botox is not a cheap injection, and it’s best to be suspicious when getting a two-for-one deal. Do some research to ensure your physician’s Botox pricing is within the industry’s guidelines. 

Payment options should be flexible to cover those who want to pay in medical insurance and cash. Medical indemnity insurance should also cover the clinic to ensure your protection in case the worst happens. It’s better to be safe than sorry.

  • Consultations and Follow-up Services

The most reliable clinics offer patient pre-consultations so clients can gain knowledge before undergoing treatment procedures. A good practice will allow you to check out the treatment premises beforehand, ask the doctor relevant questions, and address any concerns they may have. 

Follow-up services are also essential as you don’t want your physician to leave you out to dry after the procedure, especially if you’re a first-time Botox patient open to discuss further treatment options. 

  • Is The Injection Botox?

There are several Botox competitors in the market, and patients should ask their physician about the neuromodulator they’ll be administering. Some physicians use “Botox” as a catch term that could mean Botox, Xeomin, or Dysport. 

There are different reactions to different injectables, and the effects will vary in duration. Competitor injections cost less than Botox, which potentially creates an adverse incentive. Your doctor should discuss competing products so you know what they’re injecting.
