Wondering where to get Botox in SLC, Utah? Keep in mind that the success of botox and dermal filler treatments does differ and largely depends on the injector performing the treatments. Many people don’t realize how treatments can differ depending on how the Botox is mixed and of course, injected, and often make their decision based on the best price or deal. Many places promote Groupon discounts and other offers on varying sites but it’s important to do your research on the actual injector prior to purchasing coupons.
There are certainly risks involved with Botox® and dermal fillers but the risk is minimal when properly injected. The success of fillers and Botox is highly technique-sensitive and dependent on the skill of the injector. It’s important to choose a skilled injector who thoroughly understands facial anatomy and aesthetic proportion as well as one who performs a high volume of dermal filler and Botox injections.
Unfortunately, injectables are not highly regulated and many untrained doctors and non physicians can easily take a weekend course prior to offering injectable treatments, typically at a lower or discounted rate. The majority of complications come from an inexperienced injector. In such cases, the injectable used gets a bad reputation when the problem actually lies with the injector and not the product.
It’s also important to realize that just because someone is a plastic surgeon or dermatologist, even if board certified, doesn’t necessarily mean they perform injectable treatments often. Many have a high volume of breast implant experience and less of a focus on facial fillers and Botox.
Facial volumization has become a mainstream focus in facial rejuvenation and choosing a physician that understands the different levels of tissue in the face is important. With the many different dermal filler and injectable options on the market today, you want someone that also understands what products are best for certain areas of the face and can make appropriate recommendations based on your specific needs and concerns.
As a facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Thompson focuses only on the face day in and day out. Therefore, he understands every aspect of the face and has 10+ years of experience with injectables for facial rejuvenation.
