When choosing to have cosmetic procedures it is important to select a highly trained provider to perform your procedures. At Rejuvamed Skin Care Center a division of Cardinal Internal Medicine all of our injectables are performed by a physician and laser services are performed by a physician or under direct supervision of one of our physicians.. Why should you choose a physician instead of a spa to perform your cosmetic procedures?
1. There are possible side effects to all aesthetic procedures. For example Botox can cause drooping of eyelids or eyebrows which happens usually with a practitioner who is not as experienced or familiar with facial anatomy. Physicians have extensive training in anatomy which makes these side effects less likely to occur.
2. There are risks with places that advertise “Botox Parties”. Botox Cosmetic is a medical product and should only be administered in a medical setting by a trained and licensed physician and similar to any other medical procedure should not be done under the influence of alcohol.
3. Laser procedures can cause skin discoloration if are not done at the correct settings. They can also cause irreversible damage to surrounding tissue like eyes. These procedures should be under the direct supervision of a physician.
4. In case of side effects, a physician will have the knowledge to give advice or recommend further evaluation and treatment.
