BOTOX® Cosmetic remains the most popular wrinkle treatment on the market today, and with good reason: it is very effective at reducing fine lines and furrows, including crow’s feet and frown lines. Because of its popularity, more days spas, clinics, and surgeons are offering BOTOX®. However, not everyone is equally qualified to administer BOTOX® injections safely.

Each state in the U.S. has different regulations governing who can legally administer BOTOX® injections. Some states – including Pennsylvania and Maryland – only allow licensed physicians to offer BOTOX®. If you are considering getting BOTOX®, make sure you do not go to a clinic where other healthcare professionals administer BOTOX® “under supervision.” This is not only less safe, it is illegal in Maryland and Pennsylvania.

By seeking out a board-certified plastic surgeon, you will ensure you receive BOTOX® under the trained hand of an experienced physician in a safe, sterile environment. More importantly still, you can rest assured that if any complications arise, your physician will know exactly how to address them.
