How to Select the Right Aesthetic Injector

An aesthetic injector is a medical professional trained in the practice of aesthetic injections, including Botox, Dysport, Xeomin, Juviderm, Voluma, Restylane, Perlane, Radiesse, Belotero and Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP). Whether you are interested in Botox, Dermal Filler or PRP, when you are considering any kind of aesthetic injection, it is crucial to choose a provider who is trained, qualified, and certified in order to ensure that the procedure is done well and safely. 


First and foremost, do not automatically assume that every doctor has been trained as an aesthetic injector. Aesthetic injecting is not part of any medical school curriculum or education. Rather, professionals acquire expertise either through a training course or on-the-job training with an experienced injector. That means that there are a number of doctors out there who aren’t trained as injectors, while there are also other medical professionals (including nurses and physician’s assistants) who have undergone extensive aesthetic injection training. When selecting an aesthetic injector, be sure to take the following into consideration. 


Credentials. When selecting an injector for treatments, such as Botox, Dysport, Xeomin, Juviderm, Voluma, Restylane, Perlane, Radiesse, Belotero, etc., you should always check to see whether or not a provider is licensed in his or her respective state. You should also check to ensure that the provider is insured. Credentials from any kind of reputable medical or aesthetics training organization or agency signal a reputable, experienced provider. 


Experience. When considering an injector, you will want to consider the length of time the provider has been practicing medicine, as well as the amount of experience he or she has with injections. Ask how many clients the injector typically sees on a weekly basis, as well as whether or not these clients have experienced any kinds of complications. Remember, a picture is worth a thousand words. Skilled, experienced injectors will often have before and after photos of previous clients (if the provider is using stock photos or model photos, this is a red flag). While results will vary between individuals, before and after photos can help you to discern the provider’s individual injecting style, as well as the quality of results he or she typically achieves. Never commit to an injector’s services without viewing these photos. 


Referrals. Last but not least, it never hurts to ask for referrals from any friends, family members, or acquaintances who may have had work done by the injector. It can also be advantageous to check out the provider’s profile on review sites, such as Yelp.
