Ablative. Hyaluronic acid. ExpertInjector™.
Have you heard these terms before? It’s OK if you’re not familiar with them — not many patients are! I know there are plenty of terms I use as a plastic surgeon around our Louisville and Lexington offices that aren’t exactly household names, and that’s just fine. Patients don’t need to pass a vocabulary exam just to get exceptional care, but there are a few things I believe they should know, depending on the treatments and procedures they’re receiving. For patients who choose BOTOX® Cosmetic and dermal filler treatments, for instance, one of those terms is “ExpertInjector.”
So what is an ExpertInjector, exactly? This designation is granted by an independent organization that requires a high level of training and experience. The title indicates that the provider consistently uses quality techniques for injection, placement, and maintenance of injectable treatments, whether administering BOTOX in your crow’s feet or JUVÉDERM® in your cheeks.
The ExpertInjector title is one that Dr. Calobrace and I are each proud to hold. It serves as a reminder to our patients that they will receive the highest level of quality care when visiting our practice.
Let’s look at 4 factors that make ExpertInjectors the most qualified individuals in the field and differentiate them from other providers.
According to the ExpertInjector website, the title is awarded only to “board-certified plastic surgeons, facial plastic surgeons, dermatologists and oculoplastic surgeons who have demonstrated due diligence in regards to patient safety, reliable results and consumer education.” Board-certified doctors have undergone rigorous education, training, and testing to become some of the top physicians in their fields. Qualifying medical boards for ExpertInjectors include The American Board of Plastic Surgery, the American Board of Dermatology, and the American Osteopathic Board of Dermatology, to name a few. A full list can be found on their website, at www.ExpertInjector.org.
Safety is paramount, both in the injectable products being used and the tools and facilities where they’re administered. Therefore, ExpertInjectors purchase only FDA-approved products that have the clinical research to support their quality. Plus, they are purchased directly from the manufacturer, so there is no risk that they have been tampered with or altered. ExpertInjectors are also prepared with the necessary products and tools to treat a patient in the rare occurrence of an adverse reaction.
I love educating my patients about the products and treatments they’re receiving. As an ExpertInjector, I ensure my patients are aware of the different injectable options available to them, and the benefits of each. I help them choose which product will best achieve their desired results, and I carry a diverse range of products so that all of their options are available at the time of their visit.
ExpertInjectors have all received extensive training in their respective field, as well as in the injectable products they’re administering. While the physicians can’t always perform the treatment, they often have physician assistants and nurses who also have been trained in accredited injectable programs. At CaloSpa, our team is expertly trained to perform the injectable treatments, so we’re confident that our patients receive the beautiful, natural-looking results they desire.
Receiving your injectable treatment under the supervision of an ExpertInjector can help ensure your health and beauty. To help our patients prepare for all of the exciting Derby events happening around Kentucky this spring, CaloSpa is holding 2 ExpertInjector events during March, on the 17th in Lexington and the 24th in Louisville. We’ll educate patients about the options available and help them choose which products may best fit their needs. Sign up by calling our practice at (502) 814-3000 or contacting us online.
