Botox is probably the most commonly utilized injectable. Its anti-aging benefits include lessening deep creases, reversing fine lines, and allowing patients to look more rested, rejuvenated and refreshed. Though it’s fairly common, Botox should never be administered by just anyone. Clients and patients should always do their research when selecting a Botox specialist, and our team at Toronto’s Elements Spa created this detailed checklist for those looking for a master Botox injector. Let’s take a closer look!

What Should I Be Looking For?

1. Credentials

Ask your board-certified cosmetic surgeon, or injector, for their credentials and training. To be a proficient injector, professionals will always need to keep up-to-speed and invest in their education via advanced training. New products are always popping up in the market and staying relevant while possessing a strong history and years (if not decades) of experience is vital.

2. Science Knowledge

Administering Botox (or any injectable) is not a one-size-fits-all or cookie-cutter type process. Your injector should have studied and therefore possess a strong understanding of human anatomy.  This will include knowledge regarding where our muscles are, how they function, what areas specifically will need to be injected and more. Every patient’s facial structure —and therefore muscles — are different, so your injector should have a good understanding of human physiology to prevent disappointing results and provide great results to patients of all ethnicities and facial structures.

3. Artistic Eye

While science is half the puzzle, the other half would undoubtedly be art. Your injector will need to be able to look at you, listen to your expectations, and assess your facial features and their overall balance with an artistic eye. Your specialist will need to use Botox to correct any asymmetry while maintaining a conservative, natural look. This skill requires years of experience and an artistic eye that inexperienced injectors simply will not compete with.

4. Testimonials & Photos

Don’t be afraid to ask questions! Feel free to ask your injector how long they’ve been administering injectables, as well as request to see some of their work. Your injector should be able to show you before and after photos of happy clients and patients who have received Botox and were happy with their results.

5. Communication

A professional should always be open and willing to answer any questions from their patients, as well as explain the process in detail. As a patient, you want to feel as though you’re in the best hands, and a true master injector would be happy to dive into more detail with you about the process and the results you can expect.

Being a master injector and Botox specialist essentially marries all these factors and qualities to create phenomenal results for their clients and patients.
