Botox should certainly be your top pick for reducing fine lines and wrinkles, because it has a proven track record of safety, and delivers consistent results. But if you are considering getting botox, it is essential to consult with a skilled, experienced injector so that you get the best possible results.

What exactly is botox?

Botox, known medically as botulinum toxin type A is produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. It is a potent drug that can cause botulism when injected in high doses, but it is used in very low doses for cosmetic treatments.

Why You Need To See a Top-Level Injector for Your Next Botox Treatment

  • To ensure safety

Botox works by blocking the signal from the nerves to the muscles, which prevents the muscle from contracting. This will temporarily soften the appearance of facial wrinkles. Since botox can relax the muscles, it’s important to only trust a top-level injector for your botox treatment, in order to ensure your safety. If botox is not administered correctly, it can lead to complications such as droopy eyebrows or eyelids.

  • To get natural looking results

Getting botox treatment is not simply about having the product injected, the procedure must be done artfully, so as to get natural looking results. If too much botox is injected the results may appear unnatural, so injectors need to adhere to the recommended doses for each area. In addition, an expert injector knows how to match the dosage to create the desired effect.

Before committing to getting botox injections from any practitioner, be sure to review ‘before-and-after’ photos of their botox patients.
