When it comes to quick, easy, and effective anti-aging treatments, nothing beats injectables. Whether you opt for a neurotoxin like Botox® or choose one of the many brands of dermal fillers, you can get them done almost anywhere these days. But that doesn’t mean you should.
Every state has laws governing the administration of these revolutionary injectables, and none is more strict than California’s. At New Life Aesthetics in Bakersfield, Dr. Nirav Naik is a premier physician fully qualified to administer Botox and filler treatments. His experience and skill matter — here’s why.
It’s the law
Here in the Golden State, the only ones legally certified to inject Botox and dermal fillers are licensed medical professionals, such as Dr. Naik. If you go to a spa, even a medspa that offers to inject neurotoxins or dermal fillers, but there’s no medical professional present, walk away. Estheticians, by law, may not use any needles that penetrate below your outer layer of skin, called the epidermis.
It takes more than a license
Don’t let the seeming ease and speed of the treatment fool you. To get amazing results every time, the administrator needs to have a deep understanding of facial anatomy and physiology. Administering these injectables takes a deft hand and an artistic eye to create a balanced aesthetic effect — and Dr. Naik has what it takes.
It’s about more than needle placement
When you come in for your injectables, you’re in and out within 20 minutes, but before your first needle stick, Dr. Naik has used his extensive education and vast experience to make some very important decisions related to your health and the outcome of your treatment, starting with determining whether you’re a good candidate for the injections you want. Then he:
- Selects the right product to address your unique needs
- Chooses the precise formula for your skin type, age, and condition
- Precisely measures the exact dosage
- Determines the ideal location and depth of the injectables
Every face is different, which means every injectable treatment is different. Those without medical experience may offer a one-size-fits-all treatment that could leave you sorry you went there.
It’s a medical treatment
Perhaps because Botox and fillers have become household terms, or maybe because they’re offered in so many establishments (even when they shouldn’t be), these treatments seem to give people the impression that they’re no riskier than a traditional facial — but that’s not true.
Dermal fillers and Botox are medical treatments that can lead to complications if administered by an unlicensed, inexperienced person. Although uncommon, all injections carry the risk of infection. Dr. Naik not only knows how to avoid this and takes meticulous precautions to preserve your health and safety, but he also knows exactly what to do should you experience any complications.
It’s your face
The reason you want Botox or fillers — or both — is to improve your looks. So why risk lopsided results, unnecessary bruising and swelling, or infection by going with an amateur?
