If you’ve ever gotten a bad haircut, you’ll know that all hairdressers aren’t created equally. It’s exactly the same when it comes to doctors. Some are good at their jobs and others, not so much. Then, if we’re talking about aesthetic doctors, things get even trickier. Not only does the person wielding the needle need to know what he’s doing, but he also needs to know precisely where to place it. Simply put, aesthetic medicine is science meets art, and when it’s done correctly, the results are pure magic.
If you’re looking for an aesthetic doctor, you never want to do a quick Google and call the first number that pops up in your search. You want to find someone who is experienced in the field of aesthetics.
“Knowing how to select and inject a medical product is only part of the safety process. Your injector must be fully trained in the anatomy and physiology of the treated area to inject safely. They must be capable of managing the adverse events and complications when they occur,” says Dr Graham Duncombe. “The key safety points to check in a potential injector include their medical training level and their proficiency in selecting medically approved products produced in sterile laboratories that are transported and stored correctly.”
It’s not just the doctor you want to get either. Duncombe says you should also check that the clinic has complete access to medical emergency equipment, medications and staff trained in team emergency response protocol. You’re not likely to have an adverse reaction, but it’s always best to be safe, rather than sorry. “This can make the difference between a successful outcome and a dangerous incident,” he says.
Always pick a pro
At Skin Renewal, all of our doctors have been administering injectable treatments for years. This includes procedures such as botulinum toxin and dermal fillers. They’re also continually undergoing training that helps them to hone their talents even further and master innovative new methods. Just one of them, for example, is a new injectable technique called MD Codes™. Created by Dr Mauricio de Maio, one of the world’s most pioneering plastic surgeons, it serves as a map for a series of injection points based on a much deeper understanding of facial anatomy. What makes de Maio’s trademark technique so ground-breaking is that it’s not focused on treating a single concern. It considers the patient’s entire face as well as how it’s likely to age in the future. The resultant solution is a series of injections that can instantly improve the look of several features. Creating a foundation that could see you requiring fewer treatments going forward. Rather than merely smooth a wrinkle or restore volume, its holistic approach lays the foundation for a younger-looking face in the future. One which is likely to require less treatment yet enjoy a better outcome.

Clearly, injectable treatments have come a long way and, in many cases, are replacing the need for a much more invasive procedure later on. Still, the results will only ever be as brilliant as the doctor administering them. This is why it’s important to always pick wisely to ensure you always look refreshed, never “re-done”.
