Did you know that more than 1 million doctors and providers around the country are allowed to administer injectable treatments, like Botox Cosmetic and dermal fillers, yet less than 3% meet the standards of an expert injector? To achieve the youthful, natural-looking facial rejuvenation results you want, while avoiding serious problems and complications, it is imperative that you find an expert injector for your next noninvasive treatment.
What is an Expert Injector?
An Expert Injector is a board certified plastic surgeon, dermatologist, or oculoplastic surgeon with specialized training in injectable techniques and products. He/she consistently provided exceptional facial rejuvenation results using Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved injectable products. An Expert Injector demonstrates meticulous attention to safety and patient education. Additionally, an Expert Injector always:
- Buys injectable medications directly from the respective manufacturer
- Keeps accurate and up-to-date patient records
- Institutes proper injection protocols
- Provides appropriate patient education; ensuring each patient signs an informed consent form
- Ensures that any nurse or physician’s assistant injector, working under their guidance, has mastered a credible injectable training program
Dr. Leonard Miller, founder of the Boston Center for Plastic Surgery, is a renowned Expert Injector. Along with his associate, Dr. Sean Doherty, Dr. Miler brings patients in the Boston-area close to 30 years of exceptional experience and aesthetic knowledge. Dr. Miller and Dr. Doherty exhibit unmatched skill with all injectable treatments, including Botox, Sculptra, Juvederm, Voluma, and Volbella.
Who will be administering your injectable?
During your consultation, do not be afraid to ask who will performing the injectable treatments. While you may have an initial appointment with a board certified plastic surgeon, the office may have their aestheticians or nurses provide the injectable treatments. Never go in blindly, ask who will administer the injectable, how much experience they have, and what their track record of successful injectable treatments has been.
At the Boston Center for Facial Plastic Surgery, every injectable treatment is performing by a board certified plastic surgeon; never office staff. This means that your injector will be an experienced cosmetic surgeon, with an in-depth knowledge of facial anatomy and injectable medicine.
