Why Injector Skills Matter When Getting Botox and Fillers

Posted on: March 19th, 2021 by Dr. Christopher Crosby

Botox and injectable fillers are tremendously popular procedures for minimizing fine lines, wrinkles and other signs of aging.

If you work with an unqualified provider, you may not achieve your desired results — or worse, you may be at risk of complications.

If you are interested in safely getting great injectable results, your choice of injector matters. The team at Grossmont Dermatology Medical Clinic explains why in this post.

Understanding of Facial Anatomy

The popularity of Botox and fillers has led to a surge in injectors who took a quick weekend training course to learn about the products. It is nearly impossible to understand the intricacies of facial anatomy and facial aging in a few days. When a provider does not understand the anatomy of the facial tissues and muscles and how it translates to surface lines and wrinkles, the injections can go horribly wrong.

Compare that level of training to that of dermatologists, who spend years learning about common skin concerns and the appropriate solutions. This directly influences the safety and outcomes of treatment.

Excellent Technique

Injecting Botox and fillers is an art and science. If an injector doesn’t have the right training and experience, he or she may not realize that injecting Botox or filler even a few millimeters too low or too deep can lead to poor results (or worse, complications).

When performed by a qualified injector, the results of Botox and filler treatment look soft and natural. Experienced providers understand exactly how and where to inject Botox and filler to produce the desired outcomes. They rely on attention to detail to avoid results that look asymmetrical, lopsided or artificial.

Qualified injectors also understand how to pick out products based on the specific goal: for example, some fillers stay where injected and others spread. An experienced provider knows the difference and will select the right product for the job.
