It’s incredible how many private Botox course provider services advertise their training is performed by plastic surgeons and dermatologists, yet they never really tell you just who their plastic surgeons and dermatologists are. You have no real idea of who is providing you with the training.
I myself was recently talking with physicians attending an aesthetic medicine training program. They told me how the instructors at the seminar they attended hadn’t been dermatologists or plastic surgeons at all. Actually, they weren’t even physicians. One of them was a nurse, and the other was someone who had a PhD but wasn’t a medical doctor.
So, what options do you have if you’re a physician looking for a comprehensive Botox training program that is run by doctors for doctors?
The first thing you need to do is confirm the person running the Botox course provider by looking through the faculty list of the training company. If you look at the list and discover that the faculty listed isn’t the real faculty, then this is not a provider for you. You’ll see that a number of associations list their faculty, and these are good choices. You’ll be able to vet the facility on the internet to learn more about the background and expertise of the staff there. Many reputable physicians have their own websites where you can find out more about their practice, education, and find patient testimonials. There are also websites like Health Grades that allow you to review the qualifications of medical staff.
If you’ve got some questions about the person providing you with your Botox training then you should shoot an email to the training company. Don’t be afraid to just ask your questions. A good physician association will be happy to share the names and credentials of physician trainers with you. They may even give you a link to the website of the trainer so you can look up information about them yourself.
Any kind of training you undertake is an investment of time and resources. It’s important that you do some research and do a little legwork before you make any kind of investment. When it comes to training, this homework is ensuring that you are trained by the very best. If you botch a procedure after being trained in it, it’s all your fault; no matter who trained you.
When you’re choosing a Botox course provider you need to do your due diligence. Don’t just choose a provider because they promise you’ll be trained by an expert. Find out who the expert is and then learn more about them to ensure you’re getting trained by the right people. Also do a little research on the training provider themselves. Just doing a quick online search about the provider will point you towards other people that have taken the course, and you can use their experience to judge for yourself what your own experience will be. Do a little research, make the right choice, and you can’t go wrong.
