The other day I was getting my hair done at the salon when I saw an ad for Botox injections. I thought that only a certified medical provider could do them; what’s the deal?
That’s a great question. Typically a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon or Facial Plastic Surgeon or Cosmetic Dermatologist would be the one injecting Botox. But today, there are many more family doctors, dentists, OBGYNs, nurses, PA’s and non cosmetic surgeons doing Botox and filler injections. These are still licensed healthcare providers and are OK if they do Botox injections frequently. But then there are some hair stylists and nail salons and gyms offering Botox injections in less than appropriate settings. Be careful.
