The process of deciding whether or not to have Botox can be a very long one. There is so much to take into consideration: the type of treatment that you may like to have, the cost of the treatment, when you want to have it, and most importantly, who you want to have administer the Botox itself. After all, there is no point in spending hours and hours agonizing over the moral decision of whether you want to have cosmetic surgery to look twenty years younger if the person giving you the injections completely messes it up, and makes you look twenty years older! That is why we believe that actually choosing the person that administers the Botox is the most important decision of the whole process. So you do you go about deciding which Botox administrator to trust?
It can be a bit of a minefield, which is why we’ve put together this short and simple guide on how to choose someone to give you Botox. You should not have to lose sleep at night because you’re not sure whether you have made the right decision or not; just follow these four rules, and you will never have to stress about it again.
- Ask them where they were trained
There are hundreds of Botox training certification courses but not all of them are outstanding, so you want to make sure that your Botox administrator attended and completed the right ones. There are some Botox training certification courses that don’t involve training with live patients, which is always better, and some Botox training certification courses do not have teachers or trainers of good repute. Any Botox practitioner who has gone through Botox training certification courses should be able to provide you with proof of a certificate.
- Ask to see their portfolio
You want to see what a difference Botox can give people, so who better to ask than the person who has created that change? They should have some video or photo evidence of the before and after photos from their previous patients, and that should give you an understanding of what type of results they can create through their use of Botox. Video is always better of course, because it is harder to manipulate with computers, and you do not want to be taken in by false advertising.
- Look at online reviews
Beyond the actual results you want to know what the overall experience of working with this person is. Are they helpful and courteous? Are they happy to answer questions? What are their staff like? How much aftercare do they offer? You will be able to find out the answers to these questions and more through looking through their online reviews – it’s always simple to find them, and then you can get a completely uncensored view on what they are like. You may find that a Botox administrator who is very shy and does not like to show off about their talents is praised over and over again online.
- Trust your gut
At the end of the day, sometimes there is no better way to tell whether or not someone is trustworthy than by your gut instinct. How do you feel around that person? Do they make you feel safe? Do you feel able to be open with them about your hopes and fears about the Botox procedure? If you do not feel as though you can be relaxed with them, then perhaps there is a better person out there for you to work with. Your gut instincts should be trusted on this matter.
