What is the difference between having a nurse and a doctor perform botox injections?

Botox is a medical procedure, and it must therefore be administered by an approved cosmetic injectable provider. In some states this may be a physician, while others also allow nurses to do the injections. But what is the difference between having a nurse and a doctor perform botox injections (click here).

Can nurses inject botox?
Some states allow registered nurses, physician assistants, or nurse practitioners, to legally inject botox. You can check with either your state’s medical board or nursing board, to verify if nurses can do botox injections in your state.

In some cases nurses can administer botox injections without physician oversight, while others require that the physician be present. Clients should also check this out prior to getting botox treatment.

Difference between having a nurse or a doctor perform botox
Although nurses perform botox injections, it is the physician under which they practice who is legally responsible for ensuring the safety of patients.Since doctors are ultimately responsible for the results, it’s more reasonable to go to them for consultation and treatment.

Some clients also prefer to go to a plastic surgeon or dermatologistfor botox injections because of their specialist training, and knowledge of the facial anatomy.When treatment is done by these medical professionals, the results are generally very good, and the complications few.

When getting botox injections, the most important consideration should be the safety of the procedure, and this depends on the skill, training, and expertise of the injector. It is therefore advisable to choose an experienced doctor with the requisite injector training.

I have a colorful tattoo: How many sessions will I need to remove it?

‘Tattoo regret’ is on the rise in the US, which means more Americans are ruing getting inked, and want to remove their markings.While laser technology has made fading tattoos more tolerable, removing them can still be challenging, especially if they are multi-colored. So people with brightly colored tattoos continue to ask–“I have a colorful tattoo how many sessions will I need to remove it.”

Tattoo removal can be a difficult process, because the ink is embedded within the dermis, or middle layer of the skin. Tattoos were designed to be permanent, that’s why they are placed in the deep layer of the skin, and it therefore takes several laser sessions to fade them.

How laser tattoo removal works?
The heat from the laser energy breaks up the ink into tiny particles, and the fragments are then eliminated by the body.

How many sessions do you need
The number of sessions depends on the type of laser being used, as well as the size and specific colors of the tattoo. There are newer lasers that combine several wavelengths, which make them effective on a range of different colors. However, some colors like green and light blue are difficult to fade.

Having a tattoo removed can be a long process, even with lasers it can take up to 12 sessions. While most of the ink will be go neat the end of treatment, there is no guarantee that all the ink will fade.
