If you’ve been looking to address the wrinkles and fine lines that come with aging, you’ve probably heard of Botox©. This popular cosmetic injectable takes only minutes to administer, but gives you months of a smoother, youthful appearance.
Botox and comparable alternatives, such as Dysport© and Xeomin©, work using a neurotoxin that stops your muscles from contracting, the activity that creates wrinkles and fine lines. This leaves your skin moving less with each facial expression, resulting in a younger and fresher look as wrinkles and lines fade.
Botox injections have become increasingly popular at home “Botox parties.” But because Botox is a medical procedure involving possible side effects and risks, it's important that these injections are administered by a licensed professional. .
Dr. Rawan Abu-Zeitoon and the care team at Chrysolite Aesthetics in Houston, Texas, have the necessary training and experience to help you safely achieve your aesthetic goals with Botox. Let’s take a closer look at why it matters to get Botox injections from a licensed professional.
Licensed professionals use high-quality Botox
When you get a Botox injection from a licensed medical professional, like the providers at Chrysolite Aesthetics, you know that your injection is FDA-approved. Licensed professionals also know how to properly store and handle Botox according to medical guidelines, ensuring better quality medication and results.
Botox injections with Botox that wasn’t stored correctly or that use a counterfeit substance put your health at risk. Additionally, licensed professionals only use sterile equipment after cleaning your skin, reducing your risk of infection.
Licensed professionals minimize complications
When performed in a medical environment, Botox is an effective and safe aesthetic treatment. However, as with all medical procedures, Botox comes with potential side effects and complications, such as:
- Allergic reactions
- Muscle atrophy
- Facial asymmetry
These complications can lead to permanent issues with your appearance. If you receive Botox injections from a licensed professional, they know what to look out for to ensure your safety and health, and can address and manage any complications.
Licensed professionals optimize your Botox results
Botox is a diluted form of a toxin that changes the way your nerves and muscles communicate. Getting the injection right, which includes using the correct amount of Botox and the right size needle, as well as targeting the correct sites on your face, is essential for optimal results.
Only a trained and licensed medical professional has the knowledge about your face’s physiology and anatomy to get your desired results. Our providers can treat multiple areas with Botox, including smile and laugh lines, forehead lines, and crow’s-feet.
Licensed professionals create a customized plan just for you
At Chrysolite Aesthetics, your licensed medical professional reviews your medical history, discusses your aesthetic goals, and reviews your treatment options to develop a customized treatment plan specific to your unique situation, and helps you understand Botox alternatives such as Dysport and Xeomin.
Our team helps you understand what to expect from your Botox treatments, helping you keep your expectations reasonable and attainable. Getting Botox treatment at Chrysolite Aesthetics ensures you are injected by a licensed provider.
