Why You Want a Board-Certified Dermatologist to Administer Your Botox and Fillers
Thinking about getting fillers or Botox? Not only should you receive these treatments from a medical professional, but it’s best to seek the expertise specifically of a board-certified dermatologist for your next cosmetic procedure.

If you’ve noticed your skin isn’t looking as vibrant and youthful as you’d like, there are plenty of options to help produce the look you want. But if you choose to go with Botox® or fillers, make sure you only seek treatment from a board-certified dermatologist. 

Dr. Malouf Dermatology utilizes only the best treatments for facial wrinkles and signs of aging. We also have the best providers. Our practitioners include Peter Malouf, DO, a board-certified dermatologist, as well as Amanda Miller, FNP-C and Haylee Terry, PA-C, who are board-certified providers as well. 

Botox and fillers aren’t spa treatments

It’s common to hear the words Botox and fillers mentioned in the same breath as facials, massages, or microdermabrasion. But it’s important to remember the difference between feel-good services that have some therapeutic value and actual medical procedures.

Botox and fillers are medical treatments that must be performed by a healthcare professional. According to the FDA, only a licensed medical provider should perform the procedure. The individual should also have training and experience when it comes to performing these tasks. 

In fact, it’s important to look out for any of the red flags sometimes associated with unlicensed or administration of these medical procedures, such as 

  • Buying fillers that are sold publicly
  • Injecting yourself with dermal fillers or using a needleless injector pen
  • Using or allowing someone else to use any product that is unsealed or improperly labeled
  • Failing to be provided with patient information associated with these treatments 

Why board-certified dermatologists are the way to go

Without a medical professional performing your Botox or filler procedure, you could be in some danger. But why should you specifically seek treatment from a board-certified dermatologist? 

Dermatologists have extensive knowledge 

More so than any other medical professional, dermatologists understand the different areas of the face and the ways these procedures affect them. Dr. Malouf will discuss your treatment goals with you and help you find not only the safest but the best options for you to meet them.

In addition, fillers and Botox shouldn’t be used interchangeably, as they provide different results when used to treat different conditions. Dermatologists understand this better than anyone and know exactly which procedure is right for a certain issue.

They perform many cosmetic procedures 

You wouldn’t seek treatment from someone who isn’t familiar or comfortable performing these procedures. Well, a dermatologist is as familiar as they come with fillers and Botox. Dr. Malouf practices cosmetic and aesthetic (as well as general) dermatology, so he has performed these procedures on countless patients. 

They seek to create natural results

As previously stated, dermatologists understand skin. They know what makes it look youthful and glowing as well as what yields natural-looking results. Dermatologists tend to create subtler, more organic results when providing patients with these options. 

Dermatologists offer comprehensive skin care

Sure, fillers and Botox are fantastic options to create younger-looking skin. But when you visit one of our offices, Dr. Malouf and the rest of our team will be able to provide you with additional options that treat your skin more extensively. You’ll notice the difference when you begin treatment with us.
