BOTOX® Cosmetic

Who Should You Choose to Inject Your BOTOX® Cosmetic?

July 28, 2021

3 Minute Read: 

BOTOX® Cosmetic is a simple injection. Right?

This is what many women and men believe. Because of that, they may not give much thought to where they go to get their routine neuromodulator injections. 

However, even though BOTOX® Cosmetic is not a surgical procedure, such as facelift surgery, brow lift surgery, or eyelid surgery, it still requires extreme skill to ensure that it is injected in the correct location. This is why you should always choose a skilled plastic surgeon to perform your injection.

What Is BOTOX® Cosmetic?

BOTOX® Cosmetic is a neuromodulator that is injected into active facial muscles to reduce the appearance of expression-causing lines and wrinkles. 

These may include:
  • Frown lines (“11” lines in between the eyebrows) 
  • Crow’s feet
  • Forehead lines
  • Bunny lines
  • Marionette lines
  • Nasolabial folds (parenthesis lines between the nose and mouth)

Unlike other injectables, BOTOX® Cosmetic does not plump the skin or add volume of any kind. Instead, it works by blocking chemical signals between the brain and muscles that cause the muscles to contract. This relaxation allows for smoother, wrinkle-free facial skin.

Even though BOTOX® Cosmetic blocks movement, the effects only last for a few months, and long-term side effects have not been noted. When performed by a skilled injectable provider, BOTOX® Cosmetic is very safe.

Where Can I Go for BOTOX® Cosmetic Injections?

BOTOX® Cosmetic is by far the most popular cosmetic treatment (surgical or non-surgical). 

Because of this, it makes sense that everyone wants to get in on the action, and it is common to see clinics offering BOTOX® Cosmetic nearly everywhere, from shopping centers to hairdressers’ offices to dental practices.

The problem with this is that not every provider is trained in the proper application of BOTOX® Cosmetic.

In Georgia, BOTOX® Cosmetic can only be injected at licensed medical facilities and medical spas under the supervision of a physician. 

What Can Go Wrong With BOTOX® Cosmetic?

As previously stated, BOTOX® Cosmetic is very safe when injected by a trained physician. 

Unfortunately, in unskilled hands, BOTOX® Cosmetic may be injected in the wrong facial areas or to the wrong depth, and the injectable may travel beyond the intended muscles. This leads to unnatural results and potentially dangerous consequences. 

Additionally, some facilities offering BOTOX® Cosmetic may not be medical practices, and there is no guarantee of a sterile, clean environment. This leaves BOTOX® Cosmetic recipients at risk for bacteria and infections.

After much research I decided to have tummy tuck surgery with lipo at Advanced Aesthetics in Fayetteville. From the time I booked my consultation to the days after surgery my experience has been top tier. The facility is such a gem!!! Jessica, my patient care coordinator, always returned all my calls, answered all my questions, and delivered A1customer service. Where do I even start with my doctor?… Dr. Gronka was the absolute BEST! When I met Dr. Gronka during my consultation I immediately knew this was the doctor for me! He was funny, caring to my concerns, and just all around knowledgeable and personable. The day of surgery I felt so comfortable and relaxed. The nurses and anesthesiologist were all great! The day after surgery Dr. Gronka called me personally to check and see how I was doing. I had my surgery just days before Christmas so to have him call me personally made me feel even happier with my decision. Now on to my results: I am happy with how everything is looking and healing thus far. I am only 2 weeks post-op and I feel great! I can’t wait to see how my results will improve from here. My scar is low and well placed. My belly button isn’t quite what I expected but it’s still early and at this point it doesn’t even matter I feel and look great! No more saggy loose skin and I received great care. I highly recommend Dr. Gronka and the Advanced Aesthetics team!
