What Type of Doctor is Best at Botox?

It is experience that matters.

When it comes to Botox Cosmetic injections, it really is experience that matters. Both plastic surgeons anddermatologists are well qualified to inject Botox. However, not all plastic surgeons and not all dermatologists are good at injecting Botox. As the doctor about their experience with Botox. Talk to the other patients in the waiting room. Read about the doctor on the internet. All of these sources will give you a good idea about their skill and their personality. Be very cautious about going to a non-cosmetic specialist for Botox.

Botox should be done by a board-certified dermatologist or plastic surgeon.

A well-trained, conscientious board-certified dermatologist (and dermatologic surgeon) or plastic surgeon is the appropriate physician to inject botox. Other core cosmetic specialists include oculoplastic and ENT/facial plastic surgeons. These physicians have formal training in the underlying facial neuroanatomy and musculature that is affected by Botox.

Other types of injectors are generally not performing facial surgical procedures and do not learn the relevant information in their residency training.  

Plastic surgeons and dermatologists can administer Botox well

Plastic Surgeons and Dermatologists can both be exceptional at performing Botox. It is likely the entire staff has done Botox, so you have well over a dozen examples of their work to view. Ask about how often they perform Botox, and whether they have achieved Black Diamond Status (for the largest users of Botox). Always be certain your Botox will be reconstituted and then used immediately. Botox that sits many hours, days, or even weeks will certainly lose some of the potency, and you many not get the best Botox for your money. Make sure your doctor listens and asks exactly what result you'd like to achieve.
