Properly Vetting Your Cosmetic Doctor

When it comes to cosmetic enhancement, the doctor you choose matters. It can be the difference between stunning, natural looking results you love and a fake-looking, frozen face. Don’t trust your looks to just anyone.

Choosing a Great Cosmetic Doctor

How do you choose a doctor for your cosmetic needs? Here are some things to look for:

  • Specializing in Cosmetic Treatments: It doesn’t take much training to be able to legally provide cosmetic treatments. Some doctors, with no cosmetic experience at all, take weekend courses in fillers, lasers, Botox, etc. and start offering the procedure. The best results in these treatments come from practiced hands. We have been using Botox since it first became available as a wrinkle reducer 20 years ago. For great Botox (and other cosmetic treatments too), come visit us.
  • Patient Experiences: You can tell a lot about a doctor by the reviews of their past patients. A great way to vet a potential cosmetic doctor is to look for patient reviews and testimonials. A pattern of bad reviews may be reason for concern when considering a doctor.
  • Different Cosmetic Treatments for Different Situations: Offering one cosmetic treatment doesn’t make a doctor a specialist in cosmetic medicine. Different skin conditions need different treatments. Two patients with acne aren’t the same. People age differently. Look for a cosmetic doctor who offers a variety of treatments and who knows which treatments are best suited for each patient.
  • Training in a Related Field: Any type of doctor can provide cosmetic treatments (from obstetricians to family practice). In general, doctors with specific training that relates to the face, skin, etc. are best suited to provide cosmetic enhancement. Dr. Amerian is a trained dermatologist (doctor of the skin) and is a diplomat of the American Board of Dermatology and a fellow of the American Society of Laser Medicine and Surgery. Dr. Anterasian is board-certified in the medical and surgical treatment of disorders involving the face, head and neck with over 30 years of experience. Their unique training allows Drs.
