How to Choose the Right Med Spa for Your Botox Treatment
Not sure where to start when it comes to getting Botox? Choosing the right Med Spa for your treatment is one of the most important decisions you’ll make.
You want to find a Med Spa where you feel comfortable – especially if it is your first time getting Botox. While price and location may factor into your decision, having a physician or technician you trust plays a key role in determining your experience. You may find that paying a little more or driving a little further is worth it for the comfort you feel when getting treated.
Here are a few questions you can ask before committing to Botox:
What services does the med spa offer?
Every Med Spa has unique services they offer. Many provide laser hair removal, skin tightening, Botox, and Dermal Fillers to name a few. Asking questions helps you to understand the scope of the Med Spa services, and can also help determine the right Med Spa is for you. If you’re strictly looking for non-surgical procedures, an Aesthetic Spa that specializes in the treatments you need – like Botox and Dermal Fillers – may be a better choice for you.
Who will be performing my procedure?
Any medical doctor can supervise a Med Spa, so you want to find one that is managed by a doctor fully trained in cosmetic procedures. Ask about the credentials of the doctor administering your treatment. If your concerns are mostly aesthetic (not requiring plastic surgery), then it is in your best interest to choose a Med Spa overseen by a physician who receives continual training in Aesthetic medicine.
If a technician is performing your procedure, make sure to ask what their qualifications and credentials are.
What results can I expect from my treatment?
Look for a Med Spa whose staff is honest about what you can expect from your Botox treatment. A reputable technician or physician will explain the benefits and potential side effects of the procedure – and the differences between services.
Choose a Med Spa who is happy to talk through any concerns you may have, while also setting up realistic expectations for your Botox treatment. Consider asking: How long does treatment last? Is there a recovery period of hours/days?
A physician that is interested in giving you the best service possible will be happy to educate you on the procedure and make sure you’re comfortable before administering any treatment.
What is the Med Spa’s after treatment procedure?
You want to find a Med Spa where the staff are as interested in your aftercare as they are in getting you to commit to Botox. A good physician will offer follow up phone calls or consultations free of charge. This shows that they’re invested in you and making sure you get the results you want.
If for any reason the Med Spa staff makes you feel uncomfortable, then don’t have your Botox administered there. Go with your first instinct. The right Med Spa will always make you feel like you’re in good hands.
