With injectors on every corder, it’s important to do your homework to find the best Botox injector in your area.
In the age of selfies and Zoom meetings, we’re staring at our faces more than ever before, increasing the quest for the fountain of youth. This fountain of youth, often found in a vial of Botox or a syringe of filler, is easy to come by with a medical spa on virtually every corner. However, what separates the smooth, youthful foreheads from the frozen shocked ones? What’s the difference between smoothed crow’s feet and drooping eyes?
The answer is finding the best Botox injector in the Chicago area — one that won’t make you look scary but rather refreshed, rejuvenated, and natural.
In this article, we’ll discuss how to evaluate an aesthetics clinic and injectors for the best Botox in the Chicago suburbs.
WHY IT'S IMPORTANT TO EVALUATE YOUR BOTOX INJECTORS
Botox is more than an aesthetics treatment; it’s a medical procedure. Derived from botulinum toxin and diluted, Botox works as a localized, injectable muscle relaxer. Prior to FDA approval as a cosmetic wrinkle relaxer, it was first used medically in the 1980s to address chronic eye muscle spasms (blepharospasm). Since then, it has received more than 10 FDA approvals for both medical and cosmetic treatments.
To work, Botox is carefully and skillfully injected into the facial muscles by a physician, nurse, or physician assistant who is expertly trained in the cosmetic application of facial injections. Continuing education and training on the latest techniques and safety measures are also crucial to ensure you receive the best results in a safe environment.
Unfortunately, not all providers administer Botox under these circumstances, so it’s very important to do your homework to ensure you receive the best Botox.
HOW TO CHOOSE THE BEST BOTOX IN CHICAGO
Choosing the best Botox providers in Chicago can be difficult, but it’s essential to ensure you receive the best care and results. The right provider can mean the difference between looking younger and looking frozen; it can also mean the difference between having common, mild side-effects and having rare, serious complications.
With so many injectable providers in the Chicagoland area, how do you choose the best Botox providers? To start, you should understand the law surrounding non-surgical cosmetic procedures.
WHO CAN LEGALLLY INJECT BOTOX IN ILLINOIS?
In Illinois, the only people who can inject Botox legally must have a medical license. This includes providers who are physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, and registered nurses. Medical assistants and aestheticians are not allowed to inject Botox in Illinois because they do not have a medical license.
Each state has its own set of rules and regulations to determine which injectors are allowed. Knowing the law can help you weed out the spas and salons that are operating outside of the law.
It’s important to note, however, that just because a provider can legally inject Botox, doesn’t mean they provide the best Botox results. In addition to checking on the medical licensing of a Botox provider, checking the additional points covered below will also help you ensure the best Botox experience in the Chicago suburbs.
WHY YOU SHOULDN'T SHOP FOR BOTOX DEALS ON GROUPON
Shopping for deals is a lot of fun, and while Groupon is excellent for massages and fitness classes, Botox Groupon offers aren’t wise. The “too good to be true” bargain offers typically do not provide good outcomes, as they’re carried out by less experienced practitioners or used as a bait-and-switch tactic to upsell you on other procedures. Rather than looking for the cheapest deal possible, be on the lookout for affordable clinics of high quality. Most clinics offer financing options for clients who might need to take the less expensive route.
BEWARE COUNTERFEIT BOTOX
Yes, many non-reputable establishments will administer fake Botox and filler, often injuring unsuspecting patients. It’s essential that you verify with the Botox Cosmetic website and Allergna, the maker of Botox, that your provider is an Allergan approved provider. You should also ask to see the vial to confirm that it’s authentic.
BEFORE AND AFTER PHOTOS
The best Botox procedures will have noticeable but natural-looking results, not frozen faces. Ask to see before and after photos of patients treated by the prospective provider.
Real patient reviews give you an immediate, overall picture of the entire practice. Was it easy to make an appointment? Is the front desk staff helpful? Are they knowledgeable about the procedures? Did the provider have a good bedside manner? Some reviewers will even share their before and after photos, the good and the bad.
PROVIDER CREDENTIALS MATTER
The best Botox providers are considerate, respectful and caring, and they work to create a safe environment for their patients. They can quickly produce their licensing and discuss their experience injecting Botox and dermal fillers. Don’t be afraid to ask them:
- where they learned how to administer facial injectables
- how long they’ve been injecting
- what other aesthetics practices they’ve worked in
- if you can see before and afters for patients they’ve personally injected
The best Botox injectors will aim to help you feel at ease. Your comfort and safety should always be their first priority.
