Reputable Botox Provider

How to Find a Reputable Botox Provider?

Everyone is always looking for a bargain, but when it comes to your health, it’s not something on which you should put a dollar value. If you have been thinking about getting Botox treatment, then here’s how to find a reputable Botox provider – and it’s not by who has the lowest price tag.

Word of Mouth

One of the most effective methods for finding a reputable Botox provider is by talking to those who have had injections before. If they still receive them, then use their faces as “proof” of the efficacy of the process. Find out whether your friends and family members would recommend certain practitioners over others, and how they found the entire process.

Read Reviews

When you are sure you want to receive Botox injections, then it’s a good idea to compile a list of Botox providers near you, then browse the internet for reviews. Social media is always an excellent source of information – with people more than happy to offer their real-life experiences dealing with particular businesses. Google Reviews also provides an abundance of information from real customers who are all too willing to list the pros and cons of dealing with a company.

Side Effects of Botox

Many people have botox injections to smooth out or prevent wrinkles and experience no side effects whatsoever. However, there are some side effects to Botox injections that can happen for various reasons.

One of the more common side-effects is a drooping eyelid – called ptosis – when injections are placed close to the eye perimeter. While this can be treated with another medication it is better if it doesn’t happen at all.

There are things you can do to prevent side effects such as these from occurring.

  • Always make sure the injections are done by a fully trained plastic surgeon who understands the facial muscles and their interaction with each other and who is experienced in doing Botox treatment.
  • To prevent ptosis, make sure the injection site is at least 2cm outside the orbital rim.
  • Do not rub or massage any injection site as this can move the serum to other parts of the face.
  • Do not indulge in hard physical exercise for 12-24 hours after the injections.
  • Always tell your physician if you are on any other medications or have any other medical condition, including inflammatory skin conditions.
  • Tell the doctor if you are pregnant or lactating.
  • The first time you have Botox treatment, have the doctor use a smaller dose to make sure there are no ill effects and see how your body reacts to it.

Liposuction and Your Body Mass Index

What does your Body Mass Index (BMI) have to do with liposuction? Often, the doctor you see prior to having liposuction done will want to measure your body mass index. This is a means of working out how much fat is in your body. It compares your height with your weight. While you may think that the more fat you have the more likely a candidate you are for liposuction, this is simply not true.

BMI and liposuction

Doctors usually consider anyone with a BMI of more than 34 to be obese and not suitable for liposuction. It would be better for them to choose another procedure such as gastric banding or stomach reduction surgery, but even before this is done, they would have to lose weight through dieting and exercise. This is because an obese person is at more risk of complications during and after major surgery.
