It’s the holiday party season, and you want to look your best. North Texas Cosmetic Surgery sees an increased interest in Botox and facial fillers, a cosmetic service with immediate results worth celebrating. Parties and Botox, however, don’t mix.
A word of caution from Dr. Alan Greenberg: Before you accept an invitation to a Botox party, ask your host a few questions about who will inject Clostridium botulinum bacterium into your skin.
Ask 3 Questions Before You RSVP to a Botox Party
- Does a board-certified physician administer Botox?
- Is the area sterile, private and secure?
- Is alcohol being served?
Botox is a medical procedure that involves needles. You’ll want to make sure that the party host respects that, and gives fair warning to guests about the credentials of the person holding the syringe.
Unwanted Side Effects of Botox
An unskilled, untrained hand can leave you with pain at the injection site, muscle weakness, droopy eye or a “Herman Munster” forehead.
Dr. Greenberg, a board-certified physician and experienced cosmetic surgeon, is medically licensed by the State of Texas. He graduated from University of Texas at Austin and earned his medical degree from UT Health Science Center.
A Believer in Botox
Dr. Greenberg is a believer in the benefits of Botox. It’s a relatively painless process that delivers immediate results that can last 3 to 4 months. He and his staff at North Texas Cosmetic Surgery encourage you to pursue your best self through cosmetic services.
Where you receive cosmetic treatment should be a key factor in the decision. According to the Mayo Clinic: “Most experts recommend having cosmetic procedures, including Botox injections, in a doctor’s office — not at a party.”
If you are considering Botox, you can contact the Frisco office of North Texas Cosmetic Surgery for a consultation with Dr. Greenberg.
