Hands up anyone who has been looking for a Botox course of treatment that you can trust? This does not seem like the most impossible question, and yet when you start looking for someone who can give you Botox who has the credentials that you would expect from someone who is going to be sticking needles into your face, you start to realise that it is a much harder task than you would expect. After all, you would not want to buy a car from someone who you think is a little bit dodgy, so why on earth would you consider allowing someone to do something medical to you unless you could completely trust them?
This is the challenge that so many people are facing at the moment, up and down the country. Despite living in one of the most advanced countries in the world, it is starting to become more and more difficult to find an expert. This could be because absolutely everyone believes themselves to be an expert if they have read something about it online, or because people are generalising instead of specialising in their fields of work nowadays. But when it comes to Botox, you would be surprised how few excellent Botox courses there are. When you are looking for someone to operate Botox on you, therefore, there are a couple of key questions that you should ensure that you ask of them to make sure that they have taken a Botox course that you can trust.
Firstly, ask them exactly who it was that gave them the Botox course. Their training is only going to be as good as the trainer who gave it to them, and so it is imperative to understand who it was that took them through the medical procedure. When you have their name you will be able to do a little digging online to see whether or not they are trustworthy – and if you can’t find them at all, then you know that it’s time to call that particular opportunity a day. If, on the other hand, you find out that they are someone impressive and highly respective in their field (someone like Dr Howard Katz, for example), then you can at least be sure that the person giving their Botox course is worth their weight.
Next, you should ask for patient references. It is incredibly unlikely that you are their first patient, and to be honest if you are then again, steer clear! Hearing from previous patients will give you the insight that you need about whether or not they actually paid attention in their Botox course! Ask to see some before and after photos, and to speak to the people in the photos to ensure that it was definitely that person who gave them the Botox: for all you know, they could have just pulled those images from the internet. It’s a shame that we all have to be so suspicious these days, but when it comes to your health you can never be too careful.
Last but by no means least, you should go with your gut. It’s pretty impressive how our instincts can tell us something about a person before we have even properly met them, and most of us go with our guts without really thinking about it. If you meet someone who just does not feel trustworthy then you have absolutely no obligation to let them give you Botox. Just walk out the door, and find someone else who has taken a much more impressive Botox course.
