Importance of Visiting an Expert Injector
A news article out of Houston, Texas recently revealed that a woman and her two adult daughters have been arrested for illegally giving Botox injections. The women were practicing cosmetic procedures like Botox injections that they are not licensed to perform, thus putting every one of their patients at risk. In light of this recent story, facial plastic surgeon Babak Azizzadeh, MD, FACS and skin care expert Jodi Slavica, RN have some information on why it is critical to visit an expert injector for Botox treatment.
Risks of Visiting an Unlicensed Injector
The Houston police have said that the women who were arrested for injecting Botox without a license put all of their patients at risk of serious health complications. The investigation began when people who underwent Botox injections at their clinic were becoming sick. Because the injectors were unlicensed and are not medical professionals, they could have been injecting any number of substances into the patients and putting them at risk for infection or even more serious health conditions.
Licensed medical professionals who undergo specialized Botox training spend an enormous amount of time learning all about Botox, how to properly inject it, and where to inject it. If you visit an unlicensed injector for Botox injections you cannot be sure of the quality of the product being injected into your body, the sterility of the environment, or the experience of the injector. This puts you at risk of infection or more serious complications that are actually extremely rare when a trained medical professional injects Botox.
It seems as though you can get Botox injections just about anywhere now. From MedSpas to salons to Botox parties, the treatment is everywhere you look, but that doesn’t mean it is safe to get anywhere. Botox injection is a medical procedure; therefore, it should only be performed by a specially trained medical professional such as a plastic surgeon.
As a facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Azizzadeh has undergone specialized training for performing injectable procedures. He performs every Botox injection himself, with the assistance of skin care specialist Nurse Jodi, to ensure patient safety and satisfaction. When Botox injection is performed by an experienced physician and/or nurse injector, it is a safe, effective way to treat a number of cosmetic issues as well as medical conditions like migraine and facial paralysis. Don’t put yourself at risk; see a professional for Botox injections.
