Why you need to go to a licensed medical professional for Botox

You may have heard of some horror stories involving Botox injections going horribly wrong. Buying Botox on a coupon or deal site or attending Botox parties or spas where Botox is on the menu may promise great results at a bargain, there are several risks when not going to a licensed medical practitioner to administer Botox safely and effectively. Here are some reasons why you should see the pros when it comes to cosmetic injectables. 

The Watterson Plastic Surgery difference

  • The professionals at Watterson Plastic Surgery are some of the most recognized plastic surgeons and Botox practitioners in Salt Lake City and the region. Many injectors have received advanced technique training beyond traditional schooling. 
  • Our nurses have received instruction by expert trainers in the cosmetic injectables industry. Some providers are high-level trainers themselves and able to instruct other practitioners on a state and national level. 
  • Our facility is certified by the American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgical Facilities. The facility also serves as one of only 15 training centers in the United States and Canada for The Aesthetic Advancements Institute, which is the premier aesthetic educational company in the United States. 
  • Our staff receives Ritz-Carlton hospitality training, which translates into world-class service for surgical and non-surgical patients. 

Other practitioners

Inexperienced Botox practitioners may present some dangers, especially when treatments are done outside of medical facilities. Some practitioners used watered-down Botox with excess saline to get more injections out of one treatment vial. Inexperienced practitioners may inject the muscle incorrectly, causing the patient to suffer side effects such as drooping eyebrows or eyelids. The placement of the needle is so critical as what works for one patient may not work for another. Our practitioners thoroughly examine our patients’ unique facial patterns to know proper treatment for optimal results.
