When you make the decision to get Botox® injections to enhance your appearance, you should also make the decision to receive this medication from a qualified medical professional. Experience matters when it comes to administering Botox, and you can’t be too careful when choosing your provider. Our board-certified physicians, physician assistants, and nurses at Specialists in Dermatology PLLC, provide the highest standards of dermatology services for men and women in Tucson, Arizona, and the surrounding communities.
Our team of providers are specially trained to administer Botox, and we understand your skin, your facial structure, and can identify any medical reasons why you may not be an ideal candidate for Botox. We also administer Botox injections in a sterile environment, and have the knowledge and experience to handle the rare case of a complication, allergic reaction, or unforeseen medical issues.
Botox is a prescription cosmetic injectable solution
One of the first and most important reasons for considering Specialists in Dermatology PLLC for your Botox treatment is the fact that Botox is an FDA-approved prescription medication. This means that only a licensed medical professional can order and prescribe it.
When you come to one of our Tucson offices for Botox, you can rest assured you’re receiving authentic Botox injections. There is no substitute for Botox or a generic brand of this cosmetic injectable. Botox has been extensively tested and proven safe and effective for cosmetic use to enhance your appearance by smoothing out facial lines and wrinkles across your forehead and around your eyes.
Beware of “Botox home parties” or other types of events in which you not only run the risk of receiving something other than a purified form of botulinum toxin — the effective neuromodulator found in Botox — but also an unsterile, nonmedical environment.
A consultation should be the first step
At Specialists in Dermatology PLLC, we begin your Botox treatment with an initial consultation. We talk to you about your aesthetic goals, examine your facial structure and skin, and determine if Botox is the best treatment solution for your needs.
When it comes to administering Botox, there isn’t a one-size-fits-all solution. Once we talk to you about your aesthetic goals, we create a customized treatment plan tailored to your desired outcome. Our medical professionals have the experience to observe your natural facial expressions and design a Botox treatment that keeps you looking refreshed, not frozen.
During your consultation, we also conduct a thorough health assessment, including your medical history, and discuss any preexisting health conditions you have and medications you take. This information helps us determine if there’s any reason you shouldn’t receive Botox injections as an anti-aging treatment. If you’re not a good candidate for Botox, we can recommend other nonsurgical aesthetic procedures, such as skin tightening and dermal fillers.
We advise how to best prepare for your Botox injections
This is yet another reason why experience matters when it comes to who administers your Botox. You may not realize that blood-thinning medications and Botox don’t mix. Blood thinners can increase your risk of bleeding and bruising during Botox injections, so we often advise you to stop taking them several days or more before your scheduled appointment.
Additionally, fish oils, some multivitamins, and red wine may also lead to more bruising and bleeding at the site of your Botox injections. We advise you what medications and supplements you should stop taking in the days leading up to your appointment so you can have the best possible experience and the best results, as well.
Don’t leave your anti-aging treatments to chance, especially when it comes to prescription cosmetic injectables, dermal fillers, and laser treatments. You want to trust your care to experienced medical professionals for your health, safety, and appearance.
